Amazon’s suggestions for our family:
Brian threw his dirty sock into the corner (aka- the place dirty clothes go and then magically appear again clean in a drawer a few days later! 🙂 ) and his missed the corner but hit the wall…and his sock STUCK! He threw the other one, aiming for the wall this time, and it stuck too. So he used this newfound sticky wall to try to “decorate”.
In our house, the “fun director” isn’t also allowed to serve as the interior decorator (conflict of interests), so they came down immediately via the “fun hater”…aka, me.
I don’t even know how to explain this one
Or this one
I have a love/hate relationship with napkins. I love that they love them, but some days I’m all out of ideas. That’s when I enlist Brian to help:
Or Berkley, who drew Beckham Zelda from heart
Becks read something in a book about “Bubble Tea” and said “I wish that was a real thing and I could try bubble tea.” Well Bubbie, in this case, your dreams have come true!
This cat comes inside in the morning and goes straight to SP’s bed to crash.
I’m not a fan of Little Debbie snacks, but the kids always ask for them anyways. They went on sale, each box for $1, so I went ahead and bought one of each and we had a taste test!
Sundays are for baking and dressing weird?
It’s so true. Kids just want the box.
We have the STEEPEST hill that leads to the creek by our house. These 3 went exploring and then called me to come drive them up the hill. But they were so muddy they weren’t allowed in the car. Our solution was to drive them home like this:
Jiffy Pop day!
Berkley asked me to buy more glue gun sticks and tape and I told her to write me a reminder note. Here’s what I got: (it says “snort”)
Then you “open” the paper plate card to this:
Beckham’s soccer game isn’t riveting for the girls, so they made a friend and played Barbies!
Arts and crafts class face painting (insert that emoji of the bug eyes…)
Beckham and I were waiting for the orthodontist and playing on SnapChat. We were peeing our pants at some of the filters!
Although this was my fav…how I do get eyelashes like that??
Odd Squad Live came to town, and SP’s birthday was a few days before, so we got her tickets for her birthday and took her out just the three of us! (we really should do this more, none of us could remember a time when it was just her and us. Oops)
Crystal Pepsi makes a showing every now and then, and since that’s a blast from our past, we had to get some! We found it really really yummy, but that also led to a taste test. Cause we love a good taste test. (For the record, Crystal Pepsi won)
Sadie Piper apparently discovered “pranking”
This was under Brian’s pillow:
We have the old house that when you flush the toilet the water in the shower gets hot!
Berkley’s school music program was all about Kansas!
Her and her BFF. They are two peas in a pod.
Afternoon entertainment after school one day was a car fire and watching the brave firemen put it out!
When I leave to run an errand and leave everyone at home with Brian, sometimes I get a video like this texted to me:
And then when I get home, sometimes I see this:
It’s Brian making the pre-made cookie dough (that “slipped” into the basket when he ran to the store), but pretending he’s been working on them from scratch.
He seriously put flour on his face too.
And then sometimes he goes to Walgreen to pick up ONLY good lotion Kleenex (poor SP had a snotty nose and was getting chapped!) and sends me this pic.
And claims the heart is a steal of a deal cause it’s only $7 but it used to be $15.
Remember that time there was a bird in the church and Craig and Brian teamed up to save the day?
Craig scared it up and Brian’s job was to “shoo” it out the door that Craig would hold open.
Instead, Brian just grabbed it and walked it to the door…
Berkley made Santa (in his coffee filter sleigh!)
He was being pulled by his reindeer!
Brian introduced the kids to the “Double Decker Taco” and it may be Berkley’s new favorite meal cause it’s pretty much a craft…where refried beans are the “glue”…
She also made her monkey Santa!
These were hung all around “town” (aka our house)
These are also all around the house. They had cards they swipe through the bottom part and then enter their “number”
The girls got clothes from Yayay and Duck, so Brian made Becks a shirt so he didn’t feel left out!! (which he didn’t…but even before the “shirt”) 🙂
When K-State played Texas A&M in a bowl game this year it was literally the only possible match up in all of college football that we didn’t want to see.
When we told people it was “a dilemma” our K-State friends said “there is no dilemma, you root for KSU” and our Aggie friends said “there is no dilemma, you root for A&M.”
See what I mean??
Sadie Piper figured out the solution:
She also decorated our front door!
Clearly she has a favorite though! 🙂
I also put on my Aggie ring for the week…
