An Unusual Saturday

This has been an unusual Saturday in the Witherspoon household for two reasons.  First of all, we spent most of the day at home.  We didn't really have any errands to run, no birthday parties to attend, nothing we had to do.  Very unusual.

Secondly, just after lunch, my three girls spent about 2 hours actually playing together!!!  There was no fighting, no yelling - just giggling and fun.  To make this occurrence even more unusual, they were playing "Fairies," something that none of them are particularly interested in.  The game required them to pull out dress up clothes that hadn't seen the light of day in quite some time.  For David and me, this meant 2 hours of blissful uninterruptedness.  Granted, we spent most of that time sitting around the kitchen table cruising around the internet, sorting papers, discussing finances, nothing very glamorous - but, again, blissfully uninterrupted.

Of course, there is the old saying that all good things must come to an end.  This was certainly true this afternoon.  Eventually, the Fairy game came to an end and this was the aftermath -

a playroom that looked like a Fairy tornado had been through it.  It took over 30 minutes and some whining, crying, blaming, and yelling to get it cleaned up.  Oh well!  I guess the 30 minutes of drama was a pretty reasonable trade-off for the two hours of peace!! :)
