Cutie Patooties

There is a very cute baby shown for a few seconds at the start of a nivea skin care cream commercial.  The baby has the cutest little baby feet:  round puffy oblongs with stubby toes all tucked under.  Tiny chubby baby feet make me laugh and laugh.  hahaha

After last Sunday's readings at church I laugh all the harder when I see this commercial.  Apparently one of the young teens was doing a reading and came across the city of Nineveh.  However when he read it he proudly announced that the people were going to the city of Nivea!!  Too cute!  Dell got some good chuckles from that.  

Kids and church can be a lethal combination of the hysterical kind.  At one church we attended a few years ago there was a rather rambunctious young man about age 5 or 6.  He found it incredibly difficult to sit still in church and when one Sunday there was no Sunday School he nearly went crazy sitting through an entire service.  We all felt sorry for him. Some Sundays it is hard enough for adults to sit still through an entire liturgy.  The end of the service was finally in sight and we bowed our heads for the final prayer.  It was very quiet and we could have heard a pin drop but what we heard was, "Mommy, Mommy, is the service nearly over?"  Mom whispered "Yes son it is."  The little boy was delighted and shouted out, "Thank GOD!!" hahahaha  Even the priest had to suppress a snort of laughter.

At our present church we have a visitor several times a year who brings her wee one.  Wee one is nearly 2 now.  It has been a great lot of fun to have her visit our church. She loves to come up to the front of the church during Dell's sermons and wrap herself up in the long skirt of his alb.  She twirls herself around in it and sashays about, pulling it nearly off him sometimes.  She walks along following Dell at the communion rail and doesn't leave until her Mom finally pulls her away.  Wee one loves church and we love having her come to visit.  Always entertaining and if the congregation isn't paying any attention to Dell's sermon at least we know that all eyes are at the front!  haha
