A few laughs from 2012....
On a summer's day I was puttering around the house when suddenly this appeared out the window (coming from the upstairs bedroom window!)
And then this.....
I think these are from the "Stunt Double Barbie" series.
Playing with Barbies sure has evolved. :)
When getting pictures off the camera one day I found this picture that Annah took of herself using a seashell as a unicorn horn...hmmm.
And who can't resist taking picture of food that resembles a face... :)
Even Tim gets in on the fun sometimes....
What made him even think of doing this?
Upstairs in the hallway is a wall of family pictures that we periodically add to when we find a worthy photo. Jordan came home in September from BYU-Idaho and we showed him the wall that was new since he had been away.
We showed him this picture and said it was of his great grandmother....
He didn't question it and just said, "oh." Later he walked past it and it looked like this.....
That got a bit more of a rise out of him! BWHAHAHAHAHA! We found it for Halloween and though it would be funny. The joke is over but for some reason it is still hanging on the wall today. :)
And Jacob's find of the year....a box of breath mints! BWHAHAHAHA -- love it!
The poor man's speaker.... Annah's iPod wasn't loud enough for us to hear her Christmas music so this was the solution.... It really works too! :)
Each Christmas I make bags of white chocolate covered popcorn to give away. I made tags for my bags and Abigail made tags for her bags.
Abigail was practicing her writing and wrote,
"Merry Christmas whoever you are!"
Her practice tag got mixed up with my tags and I attached it to a bag of popcorn! Luckily I saw it before I gave it away and changed the tag -- that would not have been good at all!!
This was our Christmas countdown on Christmas morning...
Found this on the board in the kitchen the other day....
And found this in the fridge today...
Tim had written on it so no one would drink it before New Year's Eve but then Jacob had other ideas.....
Then later someone else had another idea....
This is one of my favorite Christmas decorations. You can't tell from the picture but it is a board that stands about 4 feet tall and is painted like Santa. Each year when I take the Santa board out I smile. When Abigail and Annah were just little -- about 5 and 3, they would always kiss this Santa! It continued for some years. I am pretty sure they don't do it anymore...I am right about that, right girls? Please say yes. :)
But the Santa board still makes me smile.
Tim hugged and kissed me one day...
Abigail: PDA! PDA!
Abigail: Public Display of Affection.
Annah: You can do that on your own time!!
Discussing the glistening strands appearing in my lovely brown locks...
Annah: Mom, you should color your hair.
Me: I am not going to color my hair.
Annah: You can use a black Sharpie!
(Yeah girl, there's a plan!)
Discussing the fact that the dishwasher emptying and and reloading wasn't happening....
Tim: Who's the dishwasher?
Me: What is a dishwasher?
Tim: A two footed creature that asks for money to go to the mall!
(Dad's are sooo smart!)
Farewell 2012. You've been a fun. And thanks for all the laughs, gang!! :)
