ella | mystery of the missing chocolate bar

I'm happily preparing lunch in the kitchen one day...
when suddenly the silence in the house rang loud in my ears.

The sort of silence moms immediately know indicates "trouble".

I tip toe quietly from the kitchen...
hoping to quickly dispel my intuition...
but knowing all too well to be prepared for what I might discover.


empty chocolate bar wrapper

fingerprints...

the culprit caught red chocolate-handed...


Trust me...
I wanted to cry when I saw my keyboard and mouse covered in chocolate.
But I calmly grabbed my camera (while discreetly hiding my smile and chuckles)
Took photos of the "evidence"...
Took "mugshots"...
Took the "suspect" into custody...
And with the evidence insurmountable...
and the mystery solved...
The cute little culprit did her time...
"timeout" that is. *wink*

KEEPiNG iT REAL
These photos were from a couple of weeks ago.
I decided to share them today though because I just felt like I needed to end the week with something a bit light-hearted.
It's been an emotionally draining week for me.
I've been helping a neighbor work on a memorial program for the one year anniversary of her husband's tragic death.
I attended a funeral service yesterday for a dear friend's mother who passed away from pancreatic cancer...
So I really NEEDED to end the week with something light-hearted...
Something to make me smile...
And a reminder to appreciate the little things.
Let's all be exceptionally aware of the "little" things as we head into the weekend.
Hugs to each of you...

And hugs to you too! And I'm sorry, I've never seen a more SWEET and adorable chocolate bandit in my life. XOXO.

Hard to be mad at such a cutie!
She's adorable, even covered in chocolate :)

I cringed for you though with the chocolate on the mouse and keyboard. No fun!
