Summary: Yes, Gina, the Lord is testing you.
Warnings: none.
Notes: Thanks to Isana for prompting this.

Gina pinched her nose, hard. "Okay, run this by me again."

Andy and Leah exchanged glances. "Well," Andy said, drawing it out, "we wanted to make ice cream."

"It said," Leah piped up, "it said turn it on first, I read it, it said."

Andy ignored her. "So we put everything in and we turned it on, only it froze, and then it kind of—"

"Exploded," Gina finished, and sighed. Exploded and covered the kitchen with milk, cream, and honey. She turned. "And what do you have to say for yourself?"

Ivy grinned hopefully. "It sounded like fun?"

Gina, if the Lord really wanted to test you, you would come home to find Ivy scraping ice cream mixture off the kitchen walls with a SPOON. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Love it!

Well, if the instructions said to turn it on first, that can hardly be their fault. XD

It really is all fun and games until something explodes...

I have actually seen this happen!

And this fic perfectly captures that moment.

When you realize the ice cream maker.


Also LOL.

Oh, those two are Ivy's kids, alright. I think Gina's on her own here.
