On Sunday mornings you can always count on a handful of people mingling and visiting in our church foyer as everyone arrives. This Sunday, this is what they saw as our little herd came through the door:
Dale, usually dressed in slacks and a polo or button-up had picked out his new and very best outfit for this week. I didn't know until he was all dressed and looking "sharper than sharp" (his words). So he came in dressed to the nines:
Alan was bringing a birthday gift for his Sunday School friend. But he hadn't picked out a little trinket or anything. No, no... he got Rachyl a HULA HOOP. So in walks Alan with a hula hoop as big as he is.
Tyler, inspired by all the gifting had found himself a red Spongebob gift bag while we were all still getting ready at home and loaded it up with... 2 leftover biscuits. No baggie, no napkin. Just a couple of naked biscuits.
Brooklyn was looking pretty spiffy herself. Some of her outfits are dressier than others, and Saturday night I had laid out one of her frillier dresses. I hadn't noticed the coordinated colors yet, but as everyone was oohing and ahhing over Dale in his suit, he pipes up and says.... "The way Brooklyn and I match we look like a BRIDE AND GROOM!!"
And... hello everyone... we have arrived for church!!
