Fake-out, and isn't it supposed to be winter?

This morning before Joel left for work, I went to the back to see if he was ready to have family prayer, and he was, so he called for Kailey. We both know that when you call for Kailey, you have about a 25% chance of her coming. This time, she didn't come, so Joel decided that we could just have prayers in the living room. We headed to the front, and when we got to the living room, we found Kailey sleeping on the couch. We decided to let her sleep and have prayers without her. Just as Joel started the prayer, we heard this gasp, then laughter. The child had faked us out! She was awake the whole time, pretending to be asleep. We thought that it was pretty funny. Where did she learn this, and when did she get the idea that she could do this?

Later in the morning, I was getting ready to put Kailey in the bath when Rickey came up frantic to go out. So Kailey and I went to the front to let her out. When we go there, we found that it was raining outside, and Kailey was really excited about it. She wanted to go play in it so badly, so I decided to let her go have some fun. Even though it is late December, it was somewhere around 70 degrees. She had such a good time jumping and hopping around.

Kailey had a great time tonight playing in the box that her kitchen came in. Aren't boxes great?


  1. I can't believe Kailey faked both of you out! That's too funny. She had to be thinking, "Man, this is too easy!" I love the pic of her jumping in the rain. She looks so big.

  2. I'm so excited for baby Eli to get here! I can't believe it's so near. Didn't you JUST give birth to Kailey? LOVE the espanol calls...too bad Joe wasn't around!
