Friday Funnies

A few days ago, I finally decided to upload the massive amount of pictures from my camera. While clicking through them, I wasn't sure what I was looking at:

 Give up? It's a sampling of Miss M's mad photography skills.

My New Love - The Farmer's Almanac

Who knew this little book was was so smart? Well, at least this year it is! Way back in January, I read that the F.A. predicted snow and unusually cold weather for my part of the country sometime March 24-27. The kids and I wrote "major snow" on the calendar and my husband chuckled at us. Guess what? It was RIGHT!! The week started off in the 80s, which was really nice since it our spring break. It gradually got colder and then we woke up to sleet and snow on the 25th.

It started snowing again on the 26th and didn't stop for most of the day. We finally got good packing snow and the kids and I headed out for a snowball fight. We didn't actually go out until after dinner, which was strange. But with daylight savings time already in motion, there was more than enough light and we played out until almost 7 PM. The F.A. also predicted a lot of stormy weather for this week...and it has done so already with more to come. I don't know how it all works, but they have been correct about other smaller weather events this year too - all several months and weeks in advance.

I Lost My Pants in the Swimming Pool and other fun stuff...

No, not really! But last summer the kids and I enjoyed a free library concert by Babaloo. With titles like "The Wee Wee Dance", "My Hair Had a Party Last Night", and the above mentioned swimming pool incident my whole family laughs, sings, and dances along to his CD's. The entire family was able to attend another free concert near our home earlier this year and Babaloo sang wee wee dance as a special request from our family!

The lyrics are probably a bit obnoxious to some parents, but after teaching kindergarten/preschool for 6 years I am hear to tell you that kids laugh/talk about gas/boogers even if you don't think they do! I figure if I can't beat 'em, I should join 'em. Besides, it's a whole lot less obnoxious than Justin Bieber! And we do still listen to Go Fish and VBS CD's so often I think we will wear them out someday.

Here's a link to a video a local teacher did with her class for "The Wee Wee Dance".

Nothing says fun like a paint roller with toilet paper attached to a leaf blower. Babaloo's quote "I know what all the dads are going to be trying in the garage this afternoon!"

Friday Funnies

For some reason, my boy likes to say "Let's Eat" after our mealtime prayers. Every. Single. Time. So much in fact, that some of his buddies in Sunday School now say it too. I'm sure my moms friends are eternally grateful for that one. A few nights ago, after our bedtime prayer he looks up at me and without missing a beat says, "Let's sleep!" and then promptly starts fake snoring. Love that boy....
