Surprise!

Don't you love it when your kids get the idea to hide in a neighbor's trash can and then pop out of it to scare people as they arrive at your house?

What makes it even better is when you have no idea they're doing it and your mom emails you a picture the next day.

One thing's for sure - life with kids is always filled with surprises.

Good thing it was in the recycle bin and not the other trash can! Such cute girls! :)

That is PERFECT!!!! I can remember when roadside garbage came to our neck of the woods. We no longer had to haul our trash to the city dump. We thought the new garbage can on wheels was so cool! We'd stash each other in it and haul each other around..... to think how filthy that thing must have been!!! GROSS!!!

Also reminds me of this story:

Cari- That's what my mom said when I complained about them being in a trash can. And yeah, they're so cute it's hard to be mad.

Rachel- I remember reading that story. I hope my kids never read it - they wouldn't fit in our mailbox!

Natalie- Mischief always = happiness around here. (sigh)
