Do Kids EVER Grow Up?

I was looking thru my google reader the other day, and I came across this post on another blog.  As I looked at the thumbnail picture, I wondered about the people I could see-then I realized it was my VERY OWN DAUGHTER! 

Now, we're not talking about my 15 year old-we are talking about my 20 YEAR OLD and her 22 year old friend!!!

Oh the embarrassment!  Oh the humiliation!

Actually, I thought these pictures were hilarious, and I hope you will look also-this is my young friend's blog.

Oh, by the way-my daughter is the one in the red shirt with the princess tiara on her head.  =D

As if this humiliation wasn't bad enough(lol), I went to church last night to find another source of great humble-ness. 

Another friend, Anita, ( came over before church, and I was telling her to make sure she looked at the bulletin board at the church when we got there.  We had received a dear email from a missionary, and I wanted to make sure she read it because it was an email that had to do with our youth group. 

So anyway!  I get to church, remind her to read the board, and she already had.  When I made my way to the bulletin board, I realized that more than the email from the missionary was up there.  Pictures of my very mature husband were up there too-one of the ones I shared here.

Okay, it's ONE THING if I share these pictures with the worldwide web for millions of people to see.  But to go and put these defamatory pictures up on our CHURCH BULLETIN BOARD-that's ANOTHER THING ALTOGETHER!!! 

Did I mention that the person that put the pics up was our pastor's wife?  And that the pastor told her to do it? 

Did I mention the pastor's wife is my mother-in-law?  (Mama, how could you DO this to me???)

And have I mentioned my husband is a preacher?  And that last night was probably a bad night to expose the truth of this man, since it was he who was preaching?

Okay, so everyone already knows that my husband is, and most likely, will always be young at heart, so I guess it was no big surprise.  :)  But still-where is the MERCY for the preacher's wife???

Okay, one more thing-I'd like to share an article written my my budding blogging daughter-my middle girl.  This is her take on having kitties.  :)

Well, I'll see you all next time, like when I have OTHER humiliating info to share with you about my ditziness, or this poor genetic disorder that was passed on to my poor children, or if Dan comes up with some brilliant photographs of himself doing the un-imaginable in one way or another!

Have a lovely day!

Lunch Really Weighs Him Down

I'm like my mother-if you ask me a question that requires a two sentence answer, three paragraphs later, you will have your answer! :)  That being said, I'll try to keep my cute little story about Dakota short!

You need to know that my children go to a school where they can use a microwave at lunch, so when they tire of sandwiches, they can take hot pockets or another warm lunch.

This morning, he and Amber were getting ready for school, and he asked me if Amber could put the lunch box in her book bag, instead of the usual of him putting it in his book bag.  He said that his book bag was too heavy.  As we were discussing the lunch box, he told me to feel how heavy his book bag was.  I lifted it, and sure enough, it was heavy.  I asked what he had in there!

Food!  Several cans of food!  I sat down, dug deep and pulled out one can of soup, one can of beef n mac, one can of mandarin oranges, two small cans of peaches, a pack of ramen nooodles, a single serving bag of rice cakes or something, a partial bag of doritos, and a spoon!

The three of us laughed, and Kota blamed it on his dad for the days Dan helps at the school.

All I had to say was, if Kota got stuck in a snow bank somewhere, he'd be able to survive for quite a while!  All I would have needed to do was add a can opener to the bag!  :)
