Daddy's idea

My sweet husband thought that it would be a good idea (which it is) to buy SIX soft swords and a soft bat and ball. The children have had a blast with them,

of course, however,I have been taking care of the wounded all day...thankfully, no blood has been involved!

and these two are really into the warrior character.
And if you look closely behind these two is the treadmill that I have been having a hate relationship with this week..."I hate you because I don't want to but I should"!


  1. LOL! Those husbands know how to stir the pot don't they?! Too funny.

    I also have a hate relationship with my treadmill...grrr. I know I should just hop on. I know I should. But....I don't want to! My bee-hind is showing my reluctance for sure. *sigh*

  2. Don't you love husbands ideas. It looks like they had fun.

    I hate my treadmill too so don't feel bad.

  3. HILARIOUS!! Looks like something my hubby would do too!

  4. Just found your site! Enjoying every minute of your heart, your dreams, your passion for children around the world. We are just starting our adoption process (but know that it won't be the last) and live as a missionary family. My hubby gave our boys foam swords too, They shout, "A sword for the Lord" and conquer their foes.

    Lovin' life as a mommy and wife,
