Sneetch Family Night

Last Monday, Qiu Ju had lesson for Family Home Evening. Although she is a pretty remarkable 14 month old, lesson-giving is a bit beyond her. So, Abby, who had snack duty, said that she and Maya had discussed the matter and were going to work together on a special lesson/snack. Abby said Maya wanted to watch the Dr. Seuss movie, "The Sneetches" and talk about how everyone is special and that to go along with the show, we needed to have a "marshmallow roast". Well, the whole thing sounded interesting, except that we live in the rainy northwest and there was no way we'd get a fire going in our soggy woodpile. From the photo, you can see our truly pathetic alternative.

Of course, where there's fire, there's also a 12 year-old male who simply must set things ablaze.

Ditto for the 10 year-old girl.

A bit burnt, but still tasty.

Lyle was very patient, twirling his marshmallow slowly over his tea candle. He then carefully implanted a Hershey's Kiss and savored his delightful little morsel.

Someone should have been watching Abby more closely. She rarely roasted, she just ate....and ate.....and ate and came downstairs later that night wanting a bowl beside her bed just in case.

Thanks Qiu and Abby for a memorable family night!
