I went to a Christmas Party and a Fight Broke Out..

Sunday we went to The Man’s parents house to celebrate Christmas with them.  I affectionately call my mother and father in law Ward and June Cleaver.  I’ve done this because The Man has always referred to his childhood as living the life of The Cleavers.. you know the show “Leave it to Beaver” ?

I don’t know if you can see Sam (he’s the cat with the green arrow above his head).

This photo reminds me of him being a “basement cat” from that cute site Icanhascheezburger.

The day started out great… the stockings were hung…

The men were relaxing.  That’s The Man and his baby brother.. oh and

#2’s there in the back and black.

Here’s #4 and his uncle.  They are pretty cute huh?

(oh and they both are single… 🙂 You’ll have to wait a while for #4 though)

It was a pretty normal family Christmas party.. trees, stockings, food, family.. until we got

to the presents.  Here’s #2.. nothing too weird here.

We have #4 opening is rocket ship.. This kid loves space.  He’s going to be

the first kid from our little town on the Moon.

Here’s #4 and his uncle “the punk” playing with the rocket..

Then we came to #5.. he’s been wanting one of these for a LONG time.

He loves Transformers, and this Bumblebee Voice Changer Helmet is

a perfect gift for this kid.

Here #2 and my mother in law “June” (without the pearls and heels)

watching  the festivities.

Wait.. what’s this? It looks like #4 has found something..

Could it be?  Did #5 leave the Bumblebee helmet UNATTENDED?

Holy Smokes.. #4 has been spotted with the helmet. That blur there is

#5 coming over to get his helmet back.  Can you see the Bumblebee

Transformer car he dropped on the floor?

He’s not happy…

He’s working  up to throwing a fit…

inlawxmas18Wait.. The Man busts into the room to save the day…

Peace and Order is restored and #4 gave him the helmet back.  Whew…

melt down diverted to another day.

True Love..

I love to see my children sleeping… it’s always a bonus when one of the animals is with them. #4 is always moving, he is the first one up in the morning and would be the last one to go to bed if I let him. But sometimes he crashes. Here is a good example of that.

This cat is called Haskell.. as in “Eddie Haskell. You know the

obnoxious kid from Leave it to Beaver? He was re-name Gregory

after #2 saw the movie Talladega Nights the Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

Here’s the story behind “Gregory”

Aren’t they cute?

Gregory and I have had our differences.. but when he’s so

sweet to #4 it makes me love him more.

Fair Food can Make You Chubby, but it Sure Tastes Good

I had plans yesterday to talk about my experience with Fair Food… but after #5 took several years off of my life by disappearing in the middle of the fairgrounds.. I couldn’t do anything but hold him all night.

So now that I am better.. I want to take this opportunity to talk to you about the food you get at the fair..

I don’t know what this is called… I believe it was refered to as “popcorn” But I’ve never had popcorn like this before. It was given to me my by my friend.. who is about 1/4 of an inch taller than me.. and is entering in the 3rd grade. (that’s his steel toed boot in the photo). I believe he won a purple ribbon for this concoction. It has Giant Rice Krispie’s, popcorn, tiny M&M’s, white chocolate and peanut butter. It was delicious.

(Note to self.. when this kid enters 6th grade he will need to bring this in order to enter in the youth room)

Yes.. these cucumbers were really this bright green.

Peppers or Squash anyone?

Some would say this isn’t fair food.. but it could be one day.. do you see #5 and the man in the background? I wonder what they are talking about?

This is the whole reason I go to the fair.. Giant Corn Dogs.. oh and to see #4 happy.

#5 holding up his giant corn dog.. see the fries on the napkin? They were scarfed down before I could take a photo.

ooo-ooH.. I love a good funnel cake too.

The eBay Queen Plays Beauty Shop with her Boys…

Today was not only the birthday of our nation, but it is the long awaited day where I take the time out from cooking, parenting, eBaying and blogging to cut the hair of men who live in my house.

The first one up in my chair of horrors beauty is The Man. I told #1 I wanted her to document this event for my blog. The Man nixed that idea, because “he didn’t want his picture taken”. Huh.. what a grouch. So there is no before photos to show you of his shaggy head. I should tell you I DID cut it too short.. but that’s what he get’s for refusing to come to my blog party.

He still looks cute.

Oh look.. grumpy CAN smile… oooh he’s going to be mad at me for this.

Next up.. #4. It used to be REALLY hard to cut this kids hair. He would scream, cry and in general act like a brat. He’s so much better now. I didn‘t think about taking a before photo of him. Not because he didn’t want his picture taken like his father, but his dad set me so off balance I just forgot to do it.

#4 looks good, and he was still the whole time.

Here’s #5.. flashing the Spiderman gang sign…

Whoo-hoo he’s cute!

I don’t know how to warn you about this next kid. He’s a real problem. First of all he could be a donor for “Hair Club for Men”. He has enough hair to cover Mr Cleans head 5 times over. He usually complains the ENTIRE TIME I cut his hair.

Don’t you like how this kid DOESN’T CARE that I am going to put these photos out there

for the whole world to see?

Look when he smiles he’s pretty cute…

Gee they don’t look too happy do they?

That’s more like it..
