Our House Was TP'd









It was an EXCITING morning at our home, when we awoke and realized that our front yard was covered in toilet paper.  The girls were thrilled, and had an amazing time playing & helping us pick up the tp.  Actually everyone but Chloe was thrilled.  Chloe was NOT happy that she could not run efficiently in the yard.  My first thought, being the frugal woman that I am, was what a waste of toilet paper.  Having lived in the Dominican Republic where good toilet paper is a precious commodity, I saw this 'tradition' in a new light.  Arturo thought it was HYSTERICAL & enjoyed it all.  I guess this is one of the . . . joys - results - privileges of him being a youth pastor.  I was so grateful that they unwittingly chose to TP our house on Arturo's day off, and having our whole family in the yard to clean it up was pretty fun.  Go Figure - I guess keeping a sense of humor in life is key to fully enjoying all the fun quirks that happen.

Looks like a great family time! I used to LOVE to TP, but I can tell you now that I have to purchase TP that I'm going to guard my TP from my kids like gold. :)

Brings back childhood memories. Looks like they did a pretty good job. At least they left the shaving cream at home. :)

SO much fun!!!! We used to TP our Bishop's house. A lot of the kids in the mid-west "fork" homes instead. They get boxes of plastic forks and stick them all over the ground.
