Pantry sneaks part 2

This morning, it was the pantry in the garage. Those little bugs got the keys to the lock (which we switched around to keep the kids out of the garage a couple of weeks back) and opened the garage door to the pantry. They even figured out which key to use. Remember the case of the missing keys last week!! Well, today our eldest daughter had a trail of fruit snacks wrappers from the laundry area, and all over her bedroom floor. And, and unopened pack in her pockets. Can you say BUSTED!! So, I had to take the pack away, and give it to Carly. Because Big C ate Carly's right out of her lunch kit. I cannot hide the lunch kits too?! What to do.

As I got back in the door from dropping the 3 big kids to school...I noticed Catie girl hiding SOMETHING under the couch in the family room. She scurried away like a little mouse when she saw me as did Caroline. I left it for a bit. After, we cleaned up the 100 piece puzzle off of the floor together, I walked over and peeked my head under the couch. What did I find under there?

A lid to the honey.

Now, my immediate next thought was...where is the CONTAINER!?!?!? SCARY!!! An open honey container SOMEWHERE in this house. Oh please Catie may it not be all over. So, I calmly asked her to find it. She went easily and I spied on her lol. She went immediately to the the living room. I heard her lift the lid of one of my crock. She took it out carefully and replaced the lid. She gave me the container. Most of it gone of course! What a feast lol. I asked Catie to next time tell me she is hungry instead of taking the food out of the upper cupboards. What a little monkey!

The next quest to find out how both Catie and Caroline found gum...my my my. Never a dull moment around here I tell ya!

Your kids are sneaky, and smart,and crafty ;)

for my birthday I recieved a Nikon D40. Yes I am starting to understand the manual focus and light stuff....like aperature and shutter speed. It will take me a while to get the hang of it but I've always loved photography.

That honey story had me scared for a minute too...and I was just reading it but picturing the worst that could have happened (ewww...honey all under the cushions of the couch!!)

Not sure what else you can do other than to put top locks on the pantries and to hide the keys in your bra??? LOL

Good luck girl!

My gosh!!! Those kiddos of yours are crafty! This has never happened in my house, but I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that there are only two of them, and they have no older siblings to teach them how to do these things! LOL

Those "crazy Empey Kids"!! LOL!!!
