So the secret's out!

A few nights ago our neighbours... the ones with 4 kids and a trampoline that Shayla has been dying to jump on... invited us over for dinner.

They are a very nice family. Three girls and one very busy boy! In the same order as us Gooch kids actually. The father is a farmer and pastor at a church in town. He was very helpful, answering all of Clayton's questions, before we actually decided to put an offer in on our new house.

Anyhow, the evening of our supper invite, Shayla was very excited and spent as much time as possible jumping on the trampoline before dinner. When dinner was ready everyone went inside to dish up.

Of course, as we had anticipated, everyone bowed their heads for grace. Everyone that is except Shayla who, glancing over at the oldest girl with a bowed head and closed eyes, immediately shouted at the top of her lungs... WAKE UP!!!

Great Shayla... I'm sure they suspected but now they know for sure we're heathens! ;)

Note: No one laughed at the time but whenever I think about it now I have to chuckle... I can only imagine what was going through her little head... like why are all these people napping, it's time to eat don't they know!!!

Bahahahaha! I love her, she is such a bold little character! I hope that she never loses that spunk and outgoing flare! Darn Heathen kids! LOL again and again! :)

Oh Shayla,
You are so cute! Can't wait to come hang out with you guys again. Maybe you should try yelling, "WAKE UP" at that baby in your mommy's belly so it can get the heck out already!!!!!!
