One More Thing...

Add this as my #8 on the "Random Things About Me" Meme:

"I get embarassed when I watch the talent portion of the Miss America pageants." (I literally laugh hysterically until I cry and can't ever seem to turn the channel.) Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Miss Michigan? And spaghetti arms? Really? Simon Cowell, where are you for this one? He really should sign up to be one of the judges next year!

PS) The "new and improved" Miss America pageant WAS admittedly better than usual.

PPS) Did anyone else watch this? I want my next hair cut to be Miss Utah's! (Diagonal forward with short bangs) :o) I'll be G.I. Jenny! Hoo RAAHHH!

Out of the Mouths of Babes

We've been teaching him all about good manners, especially about not interrupting people when they're talking. So...anytime we're having boring adult conversations, he always chimes in, "Esstuze My In Erection!" (Excuse the Interruption) until we stop talking. It cracks us up!

For some reason, "erection" has been a big word for him lately. (Hey, at least it's making good stories for his future prom dates!). We were watching the Packers play last week at Andy's parents' house and Brett Favre ended the game by throwing an interception. Andy and his dad were yelling things like "NOOOO! An interception!!" So, to be like the big guys, (in front of about twenty football fans), my lovely son puts his hands over his eyes, throws his head back and yells, "OH NO! An erection!!!" I tried to correct him, but he couldn't ever seem to remember the word "interception". We were rolling on the floor laughing! Later that night, Landon was drawing pictures of the football game and when my mother-in-law asked him what he was drawing, he said, "This is Brett Favre and this is the uniform and this is the helmet." He kept drawing quietly, so I said, "And what is that, Sweetie?"...You guessed it: "It's an erection."

Seven Random Things

Thanks Sharon for tagging me again! I love memes because they give me ideas for blog posts and it's fun to read random facts about my friends. I'm not feeling very creative right now, but here are the answers I came up with. (We'll have to do this more often so you can eventually see how weird I really am!) ;o) Okay, so here we go:

Seven Random Things About Me

1. I like reading magazines from the back to the front--I don't know why, but I always end up doing it that way! :oD

2. Even though I'm not in third grade anymore, I still catch myself trying not to step on cracks in the sidewalk ("Step on a crack, break your mama's back!") (You're welcome, Mom.)

3. I have an adult onset peanut allergy (yeah, it sucks) and even though there are no peanuts in Soy-Nut Butter, I still won't eat it (nothing to do with not liking the taste) and Andy thinks I'm crazy.

4. I have three brothers, one sister, two step-sisters, two step-brothers, one half-brother, two step-sisters-in-law, two "real" parents, two step-parents and a partridge in a pear tree.

5. I am a compulsive list maker. I will make a list for just about anything and you can always find old receipts and scraps of paper all over my house with old lists scribbled on them.

6. I cannot wake up early (probably beacuse I stay up waaaaay too late!). Thank God I was blessed with a child who has always slept in like a teenager.

7. I got kicked out of Girl Scouts.

Now, Sharon already tagged most of the people I would usually tag--(Blog Hog Bruen!) J/K ;o) I borrowed them from your blog to begin with--hee hee hee! I am going to tag Mike and Anita:

Masterpiece


I call this: "Banana Stickers on a Cold Winter Morning"

It's Like We've Never Seen Snow Before...





Wednesday, January 16, 2008

GUESS WHAT!!!

It's SNOWING!! Real flakes! Landon (true Southerner) has been outside twirling around and screaming, "It's SNOWING, Mom!!!" at the top of his lungs as the tiny little snowflakes fall around him. It's melting as soon as it hits the ground in true Greenville fashion, but we still can't contain the excitement of our annual snow shower. Gotta go play in it before it stops!!

Ron Paul













Here I am with my slice on the side Dr. (Yes, I said DOCTOR) Ron Paul. Can't you see me as First Lady? ;oP Anyways, go check him out here....or just look at Stacey's blog for more info. She is the Ron-Paul-Advocate-Extraordinaire!

Oooooh Wee!

Ooh, I am so excited because the "stars" of one of my favorite reality shows (Jon and Kate Plus Eight) is coming to Greenville!!! I can't wait to see them! Have any of you guys seen their show? I probably just like it because Kate.IS.Me! (And she and Jon fight like Andy and me and it makes me feel better--Hee hee!) Any of you who know me and have seen the show will probably agree. I love them, love the show, love the bag, shoes, hat, love it all! (<---My Best Friend's Wedding reference. Nevermind.)

A Win! Woo Hoo!!!

The Packers only have to win one more game and they're off to the Super Bowl! How in the world did this happen? This is just about the only time I care about sports during the year (well, except maybe when the World Cup is going on) and we had so much fun yesterday celebating the big win. Here are some pictures of Sunday with the Pfaffls!

Go Pack, Go!


We're on our way to Columbia this afternoon! We're going to watch the game that could make or break Green Bay for the season, so keep your fingers crossed!! Andy's paents' house is not a good place to be when the Packers lose, but if they win, it'll be one heck of a party! (True Cheese Heads, these people!) :o)

Oops!

I clogged up the toilet in my bathroom yet AGAIN (I swear, I don't know how in the world I manage to do this so often!!) and had to call Andy home from work to help me clean up the mess. He's up there right now using up his lunch break and every towel we have to wipe up all the water. Good times.

New Year's in a Nutshell!

If what "they" say is true, and what you're doing at midnight on New Year's is what you'll be doing for the rest of the year, then THIS is what I'll be doing during 2008. (Seems probable to me!) Here's a recap of my night with my sister:












So, what were you doing at midnight? :oD
