Bottle It UP ~ Best Shot Monday

We took a trip to J.’s office on Friday for a little dinner and fun. While we were there, the girls cleaned out Daddy’s change drawer and he had a few of these old juice bottles floating around, that they managed to abscond with as well.

On our way home I hear Em say to Addie –
E: Addie! Just open up the top, like this…
A: Yeah?
E: Then laugh into the bottle.
E: And then quick put the cover on the jar so you can trap your laughs inside the bottle!

You just "catch" your laughs like this

And Addie obliges. Of course.
Ha Ha Ha...bottled up
I was trying to get these shots from the front seat without them knowing – so they are not perfect. But when I look at them, I love the idea of bottling up those laughs for someday down the road when I really need to hear them again.

Find out what has everyone else giggling over at Tracey’s today.

    Vic –
    OH, yes she did. I mean, maybe she heard it somewhere? But I have no idea where she might have.

    I always say that I’d like to bottle up some of their energy to sell, maybe that is what planted the seed in her head?

    Oh that is the cutest! I hope they got lots bottled up…I am sure there are times when that bottled laughter will come in awfully handy!

    How could you not love the idea of bottling up laughs. The innocence of children just make me melt. Great catch.

  17. 18 Andrea August 4, 2008 at 9:41 am

    It’s great that you’re chronicling (is that even a word?) the sweet things they’re saying while they’re young.

    fun shots!

    I love the idea of saving a laugh for later. I may try that for a rainy day.
