Our Chocolate Touch

The children and I read the book The Chocolate Touch back in May. It was a super cute book...a modern day version of King Midas and the Golden Touch. The children and I loved the book and breezed right through it!

Shortly after finishing our book, Miss Addeline Roy aka Curious George found an old paint can in our pantry. How she managed to get it open will remain a mystery. However, this is what we found...

You can tell by the piggies who was the ringleader!
We determined that she indeed appears to possess her very own chocolate touch...even if it does come in the form of paint!

You can see the puddle of "chocolate" in the upper left-hand corner and what appear to be dance steps everywhere else. Even as I am revisiting these moments, I'm thinking 'Wow, I can't believe how calm I was!' Things like this would normally cause me to become unglued! Strangely, I wasn't, I found the entire situation hilarious!!! Probably since it never made it to the carpet...and since we had JUST finished reading our book!

I had to document it all!

Thank goodness for my very helpful clean-up crew! I just love these guys. xoxox

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment on my blog!! I am going
    through a series of challenges through Revive our Hearts. It's a
    women's ministry, with a daily radio program that can also be heard
    online or through podcasts, which is how I listen to them. It's led
    by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author of Lies Women Believe. I love her
    ministry and her heart for the Lord, she is a fantastic author, and
    wonderful speaker. God has taught me so much through her ministry!!
    Here is the website:

    The specific challenge I am doing is Choosing Gratitude, it's a 30 day
    challenge that can be sent to your inbox daily. They have several
    other challenges also, including 30 days of encouraging your husband,
    30 days of becoming a True Woman, as well as Many other AWESOME
    resources. Definitely check out the website, and if you have itunes
    you can download Nancy's Podcast every day and listen to her radio
    program whenever you want!
