When the moment came to go, Mel and Ethan opted out because of homework. We still needed to narrow it down from the 8 other kids: Lily was fine to miss out "I don't like basketball" Sophi and Owen both wanted to go but we bribed Sophi with a trip to McDonald's later in the week and Owen got distracted, yay. Natalie wasn't paying attention either, and Daniel doesn't have a choice, he's not going. So the winners are: Hyrum, Wesley, and Abi.
The game started at 7. At 6:00 they got ready to go and ate a quick bowl of some of the delicious and healthy minestrone soup I had made, and then they were off. Joseph and his friend Talmage at the game~
That stuff will kill you!)
They had a great time in the moment. As Corey walked up the stairs, holding the railing for support, he confessed "I'm not proud of what I did. ....but it sure tasted good at the time. Now I feel like a fat old guy..." He walked around the house and moaned "I feel terrible" like 20 times. He was cracking me up with all the things he said. It was so funny, it reminded me of when he came back from the Disney On Ice outing years ago with Lily. That was sweet innocent fun then, but this... "Great and spacious building?" I asked (see 1 Nephi 8:26-28)
my blog post about our healthy toddler - "Our Daniel?" I asked. No, the Old Testament prophet. Yes, that Daniel might be shaking his head at you. Corey was still bent over, holding onto the banister. "I felt fine until the cheesecake..."
Isn't that amazing for a teenager with all that deliciously tempting food around? I tell ya, that kid is 100% committed.
Hyrum confessed that he had also had a can and a half of Fanta. Corey teased "Fanta?!? FANTA?!?! That's not exactly pulse, Hyrum!" Referring to Daniel 1:12. Abi was proud of herself cause she didn't have any soda. Good job Abi. Something to balance off that bowl of cookie dough, lol. Well, I've been there (see end of this post) so it's okay. But now we know better, so I can't say I pity you. Any of you guys feeling sick, it's your own darn fault! Wes went to bed with a bowl just in case he threw up. Good to be prepared, but don't throw up! We'll see if they've recovered by morning.
