Thanks Belle for all your help!
After I got her cleaned up I ran downstairs to tell Jesse and when I returned I found something missing. You see, we had company coming over to eat with us and I had been slaving away on lasagna for about an hour trying to get it ready to go into the oven. I had just finished putting the top layer of cheese on it when Payton had gotten into the Molasses. So I had made the decision to run downstairs before placing it in the oven. I had just been gone a minute....just long enough to tell Jesse about his crazy daughter and run back up. What was missing was a bite out of my lasagna and a very guilty looking Lab scampering away as fast as she could. Don't worry....I cut out the part that was eaten by the dog and fixed it up again. I guess it was a good thing I was only gone a minute......
Later that evening after we had finished up dinner the boys decided that they wanted the chicken that was left over. So they ran into the kitchen and disappeared into their room. I was busy entertaining and didn't think much of it until later that evening when I was tucking them into bed. The thought then occurred to me that there was a lot of chicken left and they couldn't have eaten it all. So I asked:
"Boys, did you guys eat all that chicken you brought back here?".
Andrew answered "Yes".......um.....mom, what happens if I lie?".
"Well Andrew, if you lie you will get a spanking......did you eat all that chicken?".
"No, we didn't eat it all".
"Okay, what did you do with it then?".
"We threw it all around"
"You did what? Where did you throw it?"
"behind the bunk bed"
