You have heard of a cake walk.
Well, last night we had a cookie walk.
For family night I decided we would try to focus on our talents. I knew we wouldn't have a whole lot of cooperation from certain family members, so I planned ahead with a few suggestions.
We started off fine, with the girls volunteering easily with an impromptu ballet dance and a song.
When it came time for the boys, they were, shall we say, reluctant?
Enter: The Suggestion Bowl
(we started simple)
- Say the ABC's backwards
- Tell how you could get away secretly living at Disneyland
(Ethan assures us he could pass as an animatronic pirate)
- Stand on your head and list as many kinds of dogs as you can
(then a little trickier)
- Picking up marbles with chopsticks
The Cookie Walk
it's a simple concept-
Begin with a cookie on your forehead
walk it down to your mouth.
I highly recommend you run out today and buy some cookies,
and batteries for your camera.

Epilogue to my day:
Someone drew a bunch of smiley faces in the dust on a cabinet in the bathroom.
When I began my accusations (no, I did not search out the lazy oaf on bathroom duty),
I was met with perplexed denial on all sides.
Then Guy chirped,
"Maybe the cabinet is just really happy."
I think I know who did it.
