John and I were mortified! Brother Butterfield just laughed--good thing he has a sense of humor! (Granted Eli had been in time out for about 30 min. prior to the home teachers showing up for peeing behind the shed with the neighbors watching, but still!)
Guess we need to have an etiquette lesson for Family Home Evening before the home teachers come back....if they come back! Ha ha!

Lindey was getting tired while we were hiking out on the desert. She asked John if he would pick her up. He told her no. She pouted a little and John gave in saying, "Alright, fine. I will hold you." As soon as she was perched on his shoulders she starting singing, "I'm the queen of daddy!" Boy does she have that one right! :)

We all looked at each other.
He asked again, "Who stole something?"
Again we all looked around. Finally, Zander said he had. Eli started grilling him about what he had stolen. Zander wasn't about to give up that information.
We, as the four adults, tried to get him back to the lesson, but he was fixated on knowing what was stolen and wouldn't move on.
John's niece, Samantha, finally said she had stolen a penny from her friend. (Because she left it on the floor of her bedroom.) Eli then asked what his puzzle said (He had this lesson in Primary and the puzzle pieces had the steps to repentance on them). We told him what they said, and then he finally talked about what to do AFTER to make it better, and, since Sam said she had taken a penny, he was into telling her how to repent and that she needed to pay the person a penny back! He made quite the example of her. Lol--It was hilarious!

Lindey grinned at me then started singing, "Skip, skip, skip to my Mom!"
I didn't even make the connection that we call her Lu and that "Lou" is in the song until she started singing back to me! Ha ha!

(There was a car in the turn lane across from us.)
It made us laugh with how calm she was and so matter of fact about it! Gotta love kids!

"What are blinking?" I asked.
"The sparkles on the snow are blinking!"
It was beautiful!
