Overheard at Our House

On Christmas Eve our church passes out candles and the congregations sings "Silent Night" by candlelight.

Zella had gotten a flashlight (with a sleeping bag/backpack) earlier and when the lights dimmed she yelled, "Oh no Papa!" Travis asked her what was the matter and she said "It's dark in here and I didn't bring my flashlight!"

Madeline insisted on holding the candle and I was trying to keep it upright. She tilted it and hot wax dripped on my hand. I said ouch, and told her to be careful. The rest of the conversation went like this...

Madeline: Mommy, are you tough?

Me: Yeah, I'm pretty tough.

Madeline: Mama...tough people don't say ouch.

Yep...I got slammed by my 3-year-old on Christmas Eve. :)

More later,
