Markers are FOR paper...
and NOT your little brother.Saturday afternoon we went over to our friends Lisa and Justin's for dinner. This is also the home of one of Carters best friends, Conner. The two played hard and non stop for almost five hours with only two major problems.

1. They were both crying, we walked in to see them both holding their head with one hand and a play golf club in the other. You can guess what happened there. Maybe not such a good idea to whack each other was it boys?

2. While eating dessert with the adults the two older boys decided to color Owen. All over Owen and Owen didn't object at all. His face, neck, arms and even some of his shirt were decorated with blue, green and red markers. Justin walked into the playroom to see the boys starting to color their little girl Morgan just like they had colored Owen. I think Lisa was mortified, and honestly, it was a little shocking at first, but generally the funniest thing I had seen in a very long time. Really I haven't laughed that hard in forever! I told her if it didn't come off we would be skipping church the following morning. Lucky for us, we put him in the bath right away and it all washed off. So note to self, the Target dollar section markers are in deed washable. And a reminder that we will need to go over marker etiquette with our sons.

And this will not be the only time that you wash markers off of a little boy. I love it... Little boys and their little adventures!
