Friday Funnies

There were several funny things that happened at my house in the last week, but nothing fit to print! Among other things, they involve undergarment mishaps and conversations about the birds and bees.
But here is something funny a friend recently shared with me when she noticed Oreos in my shopping cart. I seriously only buy them once a year, so it's a big deal at my house! When she was about 5 years old, she would lick the icing off her Oreos, put them back together, and then "share" with her 3 year old brother. Fast forward a few weeks to a visit at Grandma's house where he was offered Oreos. Upon seeing the cream, he said he didn't like those kind of cookies. His mother assured him he did. "No, I don't like the ones with the white stuff inside." My friend was wise enough to keep her mouth shut.
I seriously considered playing that same trick on Miss M after dinner last night and telling her "I don't know what happened. I guess it's just a new kind of Oreo. That's all I saw at the store."

Friday Funnies

Overheard at my house as Miss M was reading to her brother. "Johnny brought dognuts for show and tell."

Doughnuts Miss M!!!! I asked her if we planted a dognut tree, would it grow one of these:
This is Hudson, our 5 month beagle puppy. He came from the Humane Society last Saturday. So far, a pretty good little dog except he poops in the house too often. At least he does it in the bathroom!

Blogging Award!

My real life friend Mrs. B recently awarded me and some other ladies with the "Versatile Blog" award. She's a peach to do so and Miss M is excited as she watches our counter and country list grow. Mrs. B said she awarded this to me because "she has adorable stories about what her little ones say and some great ideas for crafting and parties." A nice way to say you never know what you may get from me I guess! Anyway, there are a few rules about accepting the award.

#1 If you had to go back and change one thing in your life,

would you and what would it be?

I would tell the pre-teen and teen Cupcake Mama to loosen up and not worry so much about what other people think. The truth is, most folks are too concerned with themselves to care much at all about you are doing. I have learned that it is OK to shake things up a bit sometimes and do the unexpected!

#2 Choose four people for this award and then inform them of the nomination.

Nikki: because she really is, crafts, outings, photos, parties...a great creative inspiration for me, plus she usually includes her children.

Ali: all about being a pastor's wife, music teacher, newly homeschooling their crew of 4.

Room Mom: a great site with thrifty treats, games, and gifts for the elementary set. Especially helpful since I am once again Miss M's room parent!

Julie: I don't know this blogger in real life (she's a friend of a friend) but I like her posts and observations written to encourage mothers.

#3 Say thank you to the person who awarded you.

Thanks Mrs B. It's funny that we met in real life, but I feel like I know more about you now through your blog! Still thinking "Me??" but thank you just the same!

#4 Share seven things about yourself.

1. I have only been out of the country once, to Mexico as a child. I am getting a passport for a summer trip to Cozumel though!

2. My favorite birthday dinner cooked by mom is pinto beans, fried potatoes, and sweet cornbread.

3. I never wanted to be a teacher when I was growing up. Never say never.

4. Worried about my salvation a few years ago...thankful everyday that God and I got that all cleared up.

5. I drive a 2004 Grand Marquis. Yes, it is a grandma car and we even bought it from my grandmother! But, it's roomy, comfy, paid for, and reliable. Besides, you have to be pretty cool to be under 40 and drive a grandma car!

6. I frequently fall asleep during movies....even once at the theater with my children at 10 AM!

7. I talk to my mom at least once a day on the phone and my dad about 3-5 times a week. My children talk to at least one of them just about everyday as well.

Friday Funnies

This isn't entirely a Friday Funny post - keep reading for that! There was still lots of fun on trip earlier this summer to Branson with my family. Among other things, we rented a pontoon boat and tube and spent the day on Table Rock Lake. After everyone had a turn, Miss M decided she was up for it. She told me she was really glad she tried it because it's "so much fun to go fast!" She even got back on after a pretty big spill. I worry about that girl and her love for speed sometime!

Aunt J, Cupcake Nana, and Miss M just lounging on the boat.

Mr C and Poppa "driving" the boat. We got a lot of horn honking from his little captain.

Poppa showing Miss M how easy of a ride it can be.

"Wow! Has Daddy been working out lately? I have never seen him so musclely!" commented Miss M. When he was back on the boat, we told him what she had said.

"And why is that funny?" the 6'2" 165 pound guy asked.

I realized when I was posting, that I didn't get a picture of my mom or SIL on the tube, but they took a turn too! And no comments please about how dangerous and reckless it was for me to let Mr C ride without a life vest. We actually didn't realize until later that it didn't get back on him after a lunch break. Other than that, we practiced great water safety!

Cooling off with Uncle N.

This is what I found when Mr. C got up from his nap earlier this week.
His superhero cape was on the floor but he "couldn't get it on by myself".
The boy is a nut.
