{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} – Date Night

May 31st, 2012 by Aubri

This week one of our churches is holding their Vacation Bible School. It’s in the evening so once the girls and Phil are gone, it’s just me and the little babies. So last night, while Esther snoozed in her arm chair, Gerhardt and I had a date!  (My PHFR is out of order here, but Pretty, Funny, Happy, Real is just as good I think!)



I served something I could never put on the table if Phil were home for supper, but something I love, creamy chicken pasta.

We were having such a quiet and lovely meal together, then Gerhardt leaned to the left, gave me his naughty grin and let two little toot toots fly. He thought he was so funny!

It was the perfect opportunity for a good lesson in dining etiquette.

I’m a wonderful teacher. Never have there been such polite dinner companions!


It wouldn’t be dinner with Gerhardt without a little food art expression. He’s real classy that way.


After dinner (um, and clean up) there was much dancing and happiness!

What a great date!
