Teaching Kids to T.P.

Ellie's 10th Birthday Party
Oct. 14, 2007

About an hour into Ellie's party, someone decided it would be fun to t.p. our neighbors' house. Jen managed to deflect them to our yard, on the condition that we promised to storm outside and "discover" the mess and be suitably outraged. But watching their sweet pre-teen attempts to t.p. -- delicately tearing a few squares off and laying them on bushes -- we lost our patience and stormed out instead to show them how to toss a roll of toilet paper over a high tree branch (and get it stuck there, too).
