This little guy had a hard time at the funeral toady. It is not his nature to sit quietly still.

It is not his nature to deal with strangers (to him, but family none the less) that he was not prepared to meet.

So he climbed over pews, under pews and around the pews. He took offering envelopes , wrote scribble notes on them and passed them out.

"Mr. Rambunctious" was happy to go home. (Me too!)


  1. He is so adorable. I hope no one expected someone so small and cute to behave like a grown-up at a funeral. He deserves to be as rambunctious as he wants :-)

  2. laura b.-- Shamefully, this is my favorite child on the planet. I have two other grand kids who are wonderful and very loved by me, but this guy... oh my! He has grandma's heart so tightly entwined in his sticky fingers.

    He was not alone in his efforts to find something not boring to do... my great niece, Sophie... the world's most darling girl helped out. They kept grandma/great auntie so busy! I am grateful for that.

  3. Ah yes, acting up in a church sounds familiar to me for some reason. Kids weren't designed for sitting still. Great pictures, very cute.

  4. aliencg-- Thanks. When I was little and my mom gave me "that look" that's where I was most of the time. I sure couldn't blame him for having the wiggles.

  5. What a beautiful boy. It sounds like you spoil him as much as he should be spoiled. I agree, kids were not built to sit quietly. I'm glad he did what he was supposed to do.

  6. Churlita-- Yes, I do. He did a good job too... and I appreciated it. Funerals can be too emotional and very boring. He made the time pass quickly.

    Thank you... he is a beautiful boy.
