Devon's Baby Shower Becky

My wonderful friends from our small group, Jackie and Laura, hosted a shower for our baby boy, followed by a fun slumber party with the girls. These two spoil me and I hope to return the favor some day! They love Cammie and babysit so Andy & I can still have some date nights and they don't let me lift a finger when we get together. Laura made a yummy homemade cheesy potato soup and lattes for dessert! Jackie made mini calzones, pizza sticks and made the cake from scratch! It was delicious! It was an awesome evening and we got some great stuff for baby Devon. He's due in 6 more weeks. Cammie wore a cute little party dress and looked like such a big girl carrying her back-pack of toys on her back to Jackie's house. Much thanks to our friends for all the great gifts!!

Touchdown Andy

Well, it's starting to feel like fall out there, and now that football season has started, it's almost official! So I thought I would start training Cammie to apprecate the beauty that is football. Her training is going well, as you can see. She already knows the signal for "touchdown!" and will do it whenever someone says the magic word.

Choose your own punchline! Andy

Julie: "Mark, could you cut the cookie cake?"
Mark: "Should I cut it in triangles like a pizza, or in squares?"
Julie: "There is no wrong way to cut the cookie!"

So, let me set this up, and then it's up to you to fill in the punchline. When it happened, I had a million of them running through my head, and couldn't decide what say. We just looked at each other speechless.

It was Cassidy's birthday cookie cake. And as such, had "Happy Birthday CASSIDY!" written on a field of white icing. Mark, my brother in law, was given the task of cutting the cake. Let me repeat what Julie, my sister, said and give it the proper attention... "There is NO WRONG way to cut the cookie!" Did you catch it? Read it again, we'll wait... OK!

So Mark was going a great job of it, using a complex mental algorithm of slice-size to consumers-age ratio, while factoring in the extra icing that comes with the edge pieces, all the while being careful not to cut through any letters. So we all had our pieces loving prepared, and now for my Dad's piece. [ The following image contains middle-school-aged humor and has been rated PG.. Viewer discretion is advised! ].

So there you have it... Of the million thoughts running through your head, which one would rise above all the others? Feel free to post your punchlines in the comments, but please... keep it PG! (You don't want me to drop the hammer on you do you?)

I should mention that the cut was completely unintentional, and that Mark is a Pastor.
