I’m craving a hot drink right now and once and awhile I crave a stiff drink, and when a woman says something like this, you have to kind of wonder what she means by that.  😉

Sorry… it’s midnight.  I get silly this time of night.  Lol…

I have no idea how we got on the subject of hair, but as we were all sitting around the dinner table, my sixteen-year-old daughter Brianna ran her hand through her hair and said, “Look, mom, my hair is as soft as butter.”  I gave her a nod of agreement but then nearly spit out my food as my nine-year-old daughter Autumn replied, “Well, that’s just because your hair is so greasy!”  Brianna and I both nearly peed our pants after hearing that one.  We must have all laughed for at least ten minutes.  Oh, the things that girl says!   😉

The other day I told my daughter (15) that all of the forks were being washed in the dishwasher and so she’d have to use a spoon to eat her meal.  I had a serving spoon on the counter for her to dish up her meal with, and I figured she’d grab a normal size spoon out of the silverware drawer to eat with.

When I came back a little while later, I found her eating her salad with this…

Yes!  That’s the serving spoon!  I took one look at her and said, “Why aren’t you using a regular sized spoon to eat with?”  She looked at me with wide confused eyes and then began to laugh so hard she could barely talk…  She said, “Oh mom, I thought you meant all the silverware was in the dishwasher and I had to eat with the serving spoon!”

Anyway, it was really funny, and she’s such a petite little person.  So to see her trying to eat with this huge serving spoon made us both laugh.

And look at the difference in size!  Lol… 😉

Been feeling like something is off with my bladder.  I have a very sensitive one, and caffeine, spicy, or citrus type foods, can sometimes cause me to feel awful.

So this morning, after a few days of discomfort, I told my husband I still wasn’t feeling well.  In his joking way, he said, “You gonna go see your, what ya call him?  Poopiologist?”

I raised an eyebrow and said, “You mean my Urologist?”   Shaking my head and rolling my eyes at him, he says, “Oh yeah, that’s the one!”

Not to embarrass him, but I often wonder where he comes up with these things.  He knew it wasn’t the right word, but where Poopiologist came from, I have no idea!  Lol…

And besides that, it’s not the pooping I’m having a problem with!  At least we both had a good laugh over it.

*Sorry, I know the Super Bowl has passed, but there’s gotta be at least some sort of game on the tube to keep you happily occupied this weekend; if in fact, you’re having this done.  I don’t see an expiration date on this, so sounds like it’s still a valid coupon; and with free pizza and a bag of frozen peas, you can’t possibly go wrong!  Have a lovely weekend boys!  Lol…  😉

Thoughts on a Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme –

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town, upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown. Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,”Are the children in their beds, for now it’s eight o’clock?”

I don’t know about you, but if I saw someone winking his willie at me, I wouldn’t be in my bed, I’d be hiding under it!  ~M

Silly me…

Just picked up my fifteen year old daughter from a Super Bowl party.  I asked her who won and she said, “Oh the Patriots,” I asked her who they played, and she said…“Ummmm, Atlantis?”  I said, “You mean Atlanta?”  She replied, “Oh yeah, silly me… I’m tired.”

And yet for some crazy reason, I feel like I’m the silly one… I actually had no idea who was playing.  Lol…

Can you tell I’m a huge football fan?  😉

My daughter is turning 8 today, so I thought I’d repost this cute video of her when she was a baby.  Happy Birthday Autumn Rose!

For the Writing 101 class we were asked to share a quote and then write something below the quote.  I decided to share this video of my daughter instead.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  This video, even though it is of poor quality, is sure to make you laugh.  Notice the foot long drool at the end!  Priceless moments like these make life worth living!  🙂

Oh Christmas Tree (Homeschool style)

Making candy trains!
Autumn and her candy train

My daughter Amy and I wrote this song together as part of a homeschooling project years ago.  Every year, I find myself singing this tune along with the silly words we wrote and remembering our first year of homeschooling.  We had such a fun year and had a really awesome Christmas party where we strung popcorn alternating with wooden beads and hung them on the Christmas tree.  We also made Christmas trains which is a tradition in our house each year.  I love creating new traditions with my children.  Last year instead of giving stockings filled with gifts, we decided to give decorative boxes filled with gifts instead, to signify more closely what the Magi brought to Jesus.  We also put messages to each other in the boxes during the year when we want to say something special to someone.  Then on Christmas day, we read through the notes and see how we were each thought of throughout the year.  This year our church provided an advent book for us and we have been having fun reading through the family devotions each day.  How does your family celebrate Christmas?  Are there any traditions that you would like to share?  We would love to hear from you!  Merry Christmas!  ~The Cooks

Sing this as you read it, so much more fun that way!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The kids are screaming in the cars
The moms and dads aren’t getting far.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The cat is sleeping on the floor
The dog is pooping by the door

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The presents are all by the tree
I’m hoping that they’re all for me.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

There’s popcorn all strung up around
And lights aglow don’t make a sound.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The Christmas cookies look so good
I ate much more than I should

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

There’s baby Jesus in the hay
As we sit quietly and pray

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

I’m wishing for a falling star
And hope to see one from afar

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The stars are glowing in the night
We all can’t wait for such delight.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The stores are all locked up real tight
While kiddies sleep away the night.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

We give our praises to the king
And hear the heavenly angels sing

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The icicles are melting fast
As we all toast to New Years past.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.
