OH, BOY!! Do I have some GREAT stuff for you this month!!! I remembered to write it all down AND I kept up with the list!! Am I on top of things or what???? LOL





Let me set the scene for you….

Deanna has gone out the front door to put the trash bag in the can. I am sitting at the dining room table typing away on my laptop.

She opens the front door to come back in the house. She then slams the door and has a look of absolute shock and horror on her face like she has just seen a horrible accident.

Me – Are you OK? What happened?

Deanna – I almost DIED!

Me – OMGOSH! Come here! Are you OK? What HAPPENED???

Deanna – I was.. I was… ATTACKED BY A SQUIRREL!!!

Me – Wha?????

Deanna – OMG!! I think it was rabid.

Me – WHAT happened???

Deanna – I was just minding my own business and taking the trash out. I heard a scratching sound but thought it was a stray cat. I tossed the bag into the can and then a NINJA SQUIRREL jumped out. It almost got me. It jumped on the tree all upside-down and ninja-like! I could have DIED!!!

Me – *hysterical laughter*

Deanna – What’s so funny???? I was nearly killed by a psychotic squirrel!!!! LOOK! It’s still out there??? What was it doing in the trash can anyway??? Squirrels are herbivores! It was DEFINITELY rabid!

Me – We do eat vegetables on occasion…..

Deanna –  Not that often.

The next day –

Deanna comes running through the door.

Deanna – It’s still out there! It’s trying to get me! I saw it trying to get into the chimney by my room!!!




Deanna – Every since I had that dream about Big Bird, I just can’t look at him the same.

(She apparently had a nightmare that Big Bird tried to kill her.)

Me – At least you didn’t dream that you had to shoot Dan Aykroyd with a crossbow in a biker bar!

Hey, he was trying to kill me!!!



So, I’m scrolling through Facebook and I happen to see a similar ecard to the one above. Only, this one didn’t have the German on it. I had to look that up.

ANYWAY, I start shouting “ICH LIEBE DICH!” Scared Deanna half to death. It was awkward for a moment.

Afterwards she got into the spirit and we freaked the rest of the house out. 😉




Cailey loves all animals and I do mean ALL. She came in from outside one evening with a handful of slugs! She was having a good ol’ time playing with them…. UNTIL she realized how hard it was to get all the slime off of her hands.



Deanna and I were watching America’s Cutest Pet when she says, “OMGOSH! I am so dumb!”

Me – What?? You’re not dumb!

Deanna – Oh, you have NO idea! You just have NO idea about what I almost did!

Me – Well, now you have to tell me.

D – No way!!!!

Me – Oh, yes! You can’t just say something like that and leave it hanging. Nuh, unh! You better spill!

D – Well….. SIGH….. OK….. I saw that cute little kitty and I ….. umm…. was getting ready to try to call it out of the tv….

Me – *hysterical laughter*  FLY ON THE WALL!!!!!


Jacob and Joshua were playing Timesplitters.

Joshua – I kept shooting and shooting! I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting any points! THEN I realized…. I am ON the red team!!!




Joshua – I still can’t get over the name that Live gave me. SIGH….. Crabbyblock ***????? REALLY????




Setting the scene –

Cailey and Colin have a friend (we’ll call her K) over and they are running all over the house playing. I am sitting at the dining room table (yep, on my laptop) and Jacob and Joshua are in the living room playing a game.

K – Spell i puppy.

Cailey – I p u p p y. HUH???

Then the giggles start.

Jacob – What?? i-p-u-p-p-y???  (his voice holds a note of bewilderment) i-p  u-p-p y??? (you can hear his eyes rolling at this point)

Jacob to Joshua – That’s not even close! When we were kids we were cool. It was spell I cup. HA! MUCH better!

Me – *hysterical laughter*

The boys continue on in this vein for quite a while.



Joshua – Googley Elmo invented the radio.

Me – What?????

Joshua – Yeah, Googley Elmo.

Me – Marconi invented the radio.

Joshua – Yeah, Googley Elmo Marconi.

Me – OH, you mean Guglielmo Marconi.

Joshua – That’s what I said. Googley Elmo!




We are traveling back from Hilton Head when we see the above sign.

My Dad – Hey! Look! There’s the Bat Cave!

Colin – Na na na na na BATMAN!!!!



Sooo… Jacob and Joshua were playing against each other on Just Dance 4 the other night…. They actually got into an argument over who did better. Joshua seems to have skunked Jacob on Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up, while Jacob trounced Joshua on Selena Gomez’s Love Song. Yeah…. It was a strange, strange night.



The Fog at the Cabin in the Woods on Friday the 13th…. That’s where you can read the full story. Here are some of the parts that I left out.


Me, practically standing in the creek while yelling up at my phone – JOSHUA, IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, WE CAN’T GET OUR CELLS TO WORK. CAN’T CALL YOU!!!

Me, putting the worms on the hook for Cailey. Yes, I can bait my own hooks. I just don’t like to if I can keep from it. BLECK!!!!

Me, the look on my face the ENTIRE time we were there…….

Deanna  when she realizes no cell phone reception also means no wi-fi.

Cailey and Colin when they realize no cable.

Deanna’s face when she realizes that I was NEVER exaggerating about the humidity in Nashville.

The Hubby’s face when my mother-in-law pulled out a TON of baby pics of him and started passing them around. My fave was the one with him on the toilet. 😉

Poor Cailey at my mother-in-law’s house when her dog realizes that she is the only one scared of him. Poor Cailey was shaking like a leaf! Thor wouldn’t leave her alone.

Oh, and Thor looks like this

He’s at least part Min Pin.




Sooo, it was a little late when we started heading back home. Deanna was riding up front with me and we may have had a little too much caffeine…… Everyone else was asleep, which just proves my theory that they can sleep through ANYTHING!

Anyway…. We were listening to the radio and getting a little loopy and silly. We did the opera voices to “We Are the Champions.” Pretty soon things got out of hand and we started changing the lyrics to all the songs to stuff about pie. Yeah, pie….. Deanna outdid herself. 😉



So, did you make it through all of that? Still with me?? Then you most definitely want to check out the other blogs on the list. They are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

Secret Subject Swap Round 2

Welcome to the second Secret Subject Swap. Twenty brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.


Here are links to all the sites featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:                                                                                                                                                                


My subject is  “What is your favorite Halloween memory?  ”.  It was submitted by  .  

Here goes: 


YILES!!!! My favorite Halloween memory?? Oh, boy… I have been thinking and thinking and thinking about this one since I found out that it was going to be my subject. I have come up with exactly NOTHING! LOL It’s not that I haven’t had good Halloweens, it’s that I just can’t think of a reallllly, realllllly stand out memory except for the first Halloweens of each of my children. LOL I really liked the 3 Halloweens that I went as Princess Leia (once from each movie). Then there were the 2 awesome homemade costumes, one was a pumpkin when I was about 3 made by my Grandma Painter and the other was a pretty fairy costume made by my Grandma Blevins.


Now, if it’s CRAPPY Halloween memories, I have a few of THOSE that stand out!! LOL

One Halloween when I was about 10 I decided to go as a devil. Now, this was before they had the cute girly devil costumes. Oh, no! They had the regular old kind. AND I had a short hair cut a la Mary Lou Retton.

Can you see where I’m going with this??

Anyway, I went to a Halloween party and no one recognized me. They all thought I was a BOY!!!!!!!! I was sooooo upset!! I cried and cried. I called my mom to come get me early. After that I made sure to always go as something girly! LOL And I let my hair grow back out. LOL


There were a couple of Halloweens much worse than that but I don’t want to depress you so we’ll just skip those, K???? LOL


Anyway, to keep you all from being completely bored by my lame post I will post some awesome pictures and cartoons! 😉









OOH!!! I almost forgot!!! I took some pictures of Deanna and myself in Halloween makeup!


Me….. LOL

I LOOOOOVE those fake eyelashes!!!


Deanna. Too bad you can’t see her fangs that well!!!

I still can’t believe she let me take a picture of her!



So, why don’t you all go check out the other blogs, they are bound to have something MUCH better than my post… 😉                                                                                                                                                                



Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to a “Secret Subject Swap”.  Nine brave bloggers agreed to take on the challenge of being assigned a subject and interpreting it into a piece written in our own style.  Everyone involved picked a “secret subject” for someone else and was also assigned a “secret subject” to write about.  Today we are all divulging what we were assigned and submitting our posts.

Here are links to all 9 sites featuring “Secret Subject Swap” posts today.  We’ve certainly succeeded in amusing ourselves, check them all out and see if we can amuse you too!

My subject – 

 What is the funniest thing you have ever heard?                     

It was submitted by

Oh, boy…. Now that is a TOUGH one!!!! With 5 kids I have heard some FUNNNNNY things. LOL  So, may instead of the funniest I will just name a few of them. I’m not sure I could pick just one! LOL

1- When The Hubby and I were newly married we lived with my father-in-law. One night after they had both gone to sleep, The Hubby starts mumbling…. Hee hee hee… I LOVE to mess with him when he’s sleep talking. 😉 Here’s how it went down-

The Hubby – He won’t let me in!

Me –  Who won’t let you in?

The Hubby – The little green man.

Me- Why won’t he let you on?

The Hubby – Because I’m too old…. Look! There he goes! Under the table!

Father-in-law in the next room ALSO asleep – That’s OK! We’ll get him!

OMGosh! I had tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard! Neither of them believed me the next morning, or so they said…..

2- On our way to Georgia last week, I would list the states and how far to the next one. Colin pipes up and says, “So when will we be in South America??”

3- When Deanna was about 8 yrs old she and her friends were invited to a surprise party for another friend. Well, one if the girls accidentally mentioned it to the Birthday girl. Deanna comes home and says, “Yep, Chynna really let the cat out of the house!”

4- One day when Cailey was about 2 I found her in the kitchen sitting on a bowl with an egg in it. When asked what she was doing, she replied, “I’m trying to hatch it!”

5- One day when Jacob was about 10, he and Joshua (8) were playing video games. Jacob says to Joshua, “Oooh! Look at those acid reflexes! I’m moving so fast only your eyes can see me!” ROFLMBO!! He still hates it when I bring that up! LOL
