Hmmm. What's wrong with this picture?

You got it. I need to clean my floors. I don't know how I've let them get this bad.

At least the girls are only playing on the floors in their pretty dresses before church. I think there's something wrong with that. Aren't we supposed to be thinking about peace and love before we go to church, and not playing war?

Regardless, Daddy is so proud. He's been spending hours with the girls, helping them put their troops in formation, teaching them how to spot and then pick off the officers, and showing them how to get the maximum body count with just one shot from the Nerf dart gun.

I do my part too. The troops were on maneuvers in the hall the other day and I leaned down with my blow dryer to see how many I could take out with one blast. It turns out none.

I guess they've been practicing so much and now they're Army Strong.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.


  1. Ok...this is the second post I read tonight with that title! It must be my word for the day:-)

  2. Haha, that is so cute!

    My dad has three girls, he was always taking us hunting with him, desperately hoping we actually enjoyed it. Then we would hit puberty and never go again!

  3. so cute! I remember playing army guys in the big dirt piles in the alley growing up... clueless here!

  4. Wire Nut has army men and he uses rubberbands to "shoot" the bad guys. :)

  5. HA! I can so picture you trying to take them out with the blow dryer.

  6. PeanutHead really needs some male companionship in your house, doesn't he?

  7. Poor PeanutHead...he definitely has his hands full with you ,doesn't he? LOL........love ya, and I can just see you with a blow dryer trying to attack army men!!! Hahaha...


  8. LOL! I love that in amongst all the soldiers and battle paraphernalia is a dressage rider doing what looks like an extended trot!

    Btw your daughter looks lovely in her pretty Sunday dress. :)

  9. That is a Sean approved battlefield. I guess his battle skills have rubbed off on her a little-- Sorry (a little).

  10. giggle. So cute. Daddy's girls.

  11. The use of the hair dryer sounds completely like something I would do! How fun! Nice post!

  12. Oh my, I laughed and laughed. I can so totally see you armed with your trusty hair blower. Maybe it needs more power! (Brownie points if you know who I am referring to.)

    I can remember my dad and brother doing this. Every army guy had to be placed just so. And were usually holding one of our doll's hostage. Ahhh, childhood memories.

    Cheers, thanks for the laugh. Next time though, a warning? I am yet again cleaning my monitor. I do love me some morning coffee, just not all over the computer work area! hehe
