Lost in Translation

Photobucket


I really want to thank you for praying for me this weekend. You know, it truly made me feel better. I'm the most thankful blogger in the www. I've got this great sense of peace that God's got my health covered!
--------------------------------
Since I was resting and recovering this weekend from my little surgery, Kahuna took full charge of the kiddos. It was heavenly. I do have to admit, however, that sometimes it's hard for me to give up control.

It was Saturday night around 8:00pm and definitely the baby's bedtime. Kahuna decides he needs to go to the grocery store because we're out of food (actual translation: He really wants a cold beer). As he's walking out the door, I yell down to him, "Try to grab something cute to put in her hair before you leave."
"Got it!" he yells back.

A half hour later he emails me the above picture from his camera phone. He says they're having fun.

I had to laugh. Do you notice the "cute thing for her hair"? What I meant for him to grab was a bow, not the Halloween basket liner from the kitchen drawer.

Sometimes best intentions get lost in translation!

Oh my gosh, I just got the BEST LAUGH from that! I thought it was a shower cap, but basket liner is even better! Ah, hubbies!

Anyway, when are you getting you results back, Stace? I'm thinking of you.

That is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time! What a hoot!

Daddy's are their own special breed huh?? It looks like they have a great time together!

Sending you prayers...believing that the Lord has already taken care of it.

My mom had skin cancer, actually she's had it several times. Thank the Lord it has worked out every time.

What a cute picture! She is adorable! I often have control issues too. It drive my Hubby crazy. I find I need to relax and let God, but that is so much more easier said than done.--Have a great Monday.
