Spooky Sunday Dinner

Something spooky was baking in our oven tonight!

Mummy dogs, bloody Frankenstein toes and mummy pizza!

Avery: "This is the best dinner ever!"
and later: "Mom, I really appreciate all the work you did for this, I think you've earned a dollar from me."
Sweet boy.
And he even told me that as he was helping me with the dishes.
Sometimes being a Mom is rewarding!

Actually, Avery also gave a great talk in primary today that was obviously also rewarding to hear. His memory, when he decides to put a little work in, is really impressive! He shot right through his three paragraphs, no sweat. I wouldn't say he's the model primary child, so I think he really surprised his teacher, and the primary president certainly looked shocked as she turned to me after and said, "That was really good!" The best part was Avery's self discovery that he can do it, and do it well, and that if he does his part then Heavenly Father has blessed him with a good memory that will serve him well.

It must have been so much fun eating stinky Frankenstein toes. Did you check for toe jam?
