Pantry Fun

At our house, the pantry isn't just a closet filled with food...it is a closet full of fun. It isn't just a door I open to find a snack, what's for dinner, or to make a grocery list. In fact, the door stays open pretty much all day unless Matthew is sleeping or hiding in it. I am pretty sure it is Matthew's favorite room in the house, if it were considered a room that is. So here is just a glimpse of the fun we have with our pantry and it's contents.



On this particular day, our canned goods gathered on the table (with Matthew's help, of course) for church. I am very glad that our canned goods would go to church and even more delighted that Matthew would invite and take them there. However, since they cannot walk and the one who invited them often forgets to take them back to their home, I would be ok if their church attendance were sporadic.


No, this is not a picture of Matthew competing in a "chubby bunny" contest, but by the looks of it he would be quite good at that. This contest's name is something like "stuff as many marshmallows in your mouth as fast as you can before you get caught". Matthew normally asks to eat marshmallows and I normally say no (that is probably why he took matters into his own hands). He now adds after asking "Marshmallows don't have too much sugar in them Mama." Which is true comparitively speaking...like compared to a chocolate covered donut with sprinkles on top, marshmallows don't have too much sugar.


Erik says to me a few nights ago, "Megan you might want to go to Walmart tomorrow. We are down to only one dinsaur in the pantry."
