Chinese food and Mr. Bean

Princess has discovered the twisted English humor
of Mr Bean. It is totally Farmer Dad's fault..he loves Mr.Bean
and Princess found a set of DVDs in the cabinet and decided
we would have a surprise "Mr Bean" party for her Dad.
This week seemed to last forever and I was beat by Friday night,
so Farmer Dad ordered Chinese food for dinner and we made a
pot of tea and enjoyed it immensely.Saturday morning found more
leaves to be sucked up and mulched and various other chores awaiting
our attention. Princess and Farmer Dad worked outside in the cold while I did laundry inside.
Lunch was leftover Chinese followed by a Mr Bean marathon.
I tried to read while they laughed uncontrollably to the on screen antics.
Now they are trying to figure out why a string of lights for her bedroom tree
are not working while watching the Three Tenors on PBS.
I hope you are all enjoying whatever the weekend brings your way.

How cute that P and FD had a Mr. Bean marathon! I bet it was a laugh riot.

Soph recently discovered Mr. Bean too and he cracks her up! I don't know if she "gets" it or just thinks it's silly that he is so bizarre. Also, I'm glad I'm not the only person with a little tree in my dd's room - DH says it's a bit much - I say he's a scrooge!

What a picture those two must have made while watching Mr. Bean- I don't think I'd have been able to get much reading done!

Angela said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. It is so great when little girls and their Daddies bond over silliness!

Cool pictures. We liked Rowan Atkinson as the Black Adder.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
