Gobble Gobble!

This is what we did for family home evening last night. We talked about all the things that we are thankful for and how important it is to show our Heavenly Father that we are thankful for the blessings he gives us. I had pre-cut all the turkey bodies (aka the out line of my foot) and the tail feathers (aka Brock's hand). Each of us made our own turkey and wrote on each of the feathers one thing we were thankful for (the boys wrote things on all the fingers). It was a lot of fun. I "helped" Hayden with hers. I would ask her, "are you thankful for mommy?" she would say "no" This is what she says to everything even if she means yes. Although occasionally we get a big head nod when it is really really really YES! (this typically involves candy, ice cream or cookies) Anyway the funny thing about this project was that Larry was sitting in his chair quietly writing on his hands I handed him and he said what about this one and held it up so I could read it, faster then I could smile or giggle Ethan said "Sex?" Larry quickly said how do you know what that word is? I had to remind him that He is 8 and a half and can READ!!!! I am sure this will lead to more talks but for now he has left it at that. So needless to say Larry waded that one up and rewrote one that says "the ability to procreate!" HOW APPROPRIATE! Is my husband the only one in the world who thinks his children are still to young to catch the things they are doing? I don't know if he thinks they are all 2 and don't see or hear the little comments he makes. He isn't inappropriate but he is trying to be cute and flirty with me and now the kids are picking up on it and it is kind of funny. Or scary I am not sure...

Todd thinks he can get things past the kids too, but he totally can't!
