SSO: Any suggestions for kids waterproof boots (ages 4 and 5)? We're from FL and will taking our first ski trip. Thanks for the help!

Michelle said...

Is it sad that I remember this one from last year? And that I think it's just as funny this year? Enjoy your Monopoly and pizza!

Allison said...

Very Clever! And was that "lovely drawing" on furniture? Oy, vey!

Layton Mom said...

Only 10 dirty dishes? That must have been a really good day!

Lucille said...

Oh I JUST LOVE re-runs! Thanks for the mini walk down memory lane. I also remember that post from last year (gee you have been at this for a little bit then!) and loved it just as much this year!

Keep up the great work and I hope you had fun at game night. That would be a nice post to tell us HOW your kids (and adults) handle losing!

Have a great night and I hope you don't get more snow like we are. Ugh - talk about REPEATS - we had this crazy weather pattern last year!

Loved the song!!! BTW - who won the fire safety products you were giving away. I looked but I couldn't find where you picked the winner!

On Stage said...

Your posts always crack me up! Reading your blog always puts me in a great mood!

Donna said...

Very good! Take that to Nashville and record it!

LuAnn said...

Boy, do I ever relate to this. Thanks so much for the laugh. I love your blog!

Patois said...

Oh, yeah, do what Donna suggests, with all the kids singing it.

Andi said...

COOL! Sounds like my house, except divide it by 3 and you get the idea. Don't know how you do it with 6. I'm barely sane with 2. Take care of that cold. Hope you whipped them at Monopoly last night.

Only 11 loads of laundry? You must be making headway on that backlog. Congratulations! lol

Only 11 loads of laundry? You must have been caught up recently?

My little helpers were in the attic by themselves and dumped all the off season clothes on the dusty floor. And, since the cat got up there unnoticed and trapped, she peed on the clothes. Great, 20 extra loads of laundry this week. On the up side, I found the maternity clothes finally and washed them first so I would have stuff to wear.

Your picture resembles Plankton on Spongebob. Are your kids trying to tell you something? I bet I have 4 loads of mismatched socks. How does it happen?

Michelle said...

Oh I love the first drawing...it looks like a mistake was made and then licked to remove it. LOL! Thanks for the laugh!

The Hussy Housewife said...

Oh me Oh my! They keep you busy. If you ever need a drink or laugh..you can come visit me? I will keep a cold one for ya!

Feisty Irish Wench said...

Your 10 dirty dishes looks quite a lot like some of my dishes except a different color. Your Tupperware lady loves you ;) lol

MPMommy said...

I love it! Got a question for you (maybe SSO?) -- what's a typical dinner for your family? I'm getting bored again of my usuals and I'd love to know some of the meals you feed your crew. Thanks!

Holly said...

The picture (drawing) of you is hilarious!
