We were playing a rousing game of charades...
Mostly because i suggested it when i was too tired to oust my body from the couch to go downstairs and play hide and go seek in the dark.
Neil's cousins were visiting, and the littles were each trying to out do the last with their acting.
Peyton stood up.
She delicately held up 2 fingers.
"Two words!" we shouted.
She held up one finger.
"First word!" we continued.
Charter was visibly impressed with this charade short cut that he had not used before.
"Two words, first word, second word... i like that! That sure makes it easy to know how many words long it is!" He muttered, absently bouncing in his seat as that little marble rolled around in his brain.
Peyton finished her turn in seconds and returned to her seat. Charter was up next. He wracked his brain for a few seconds and then leapt from his seat.
Beaming, obviously pleased with himself, he just had one question, "Hey Kari, how many words is chainsaw?"
