I remembered to write stuff down this month!! WOOO HOOO!!! 😉




Joshua – Boboton should be the name of a planet.




Colin has a new found love of Babybel Cheese. He also likes using the net on his head. He looks like a lunch lady!




We have gone through about 5 electric can openers in the past couple of years. Instead of buying yet another one I got a manual can opener instead. I left it out and asked Deanna to open some cans for me. Hee hee hee hee!! It took her FOREVER to figure out how it works!




Deanna and I were watching TV.

Me – That was D-U-M-B.

Deanna – What? I don’t get it.

Me – You know… Dumb, D-U-M-B.

Deanna – Oh! I thought it was a new acronym and I just didn’t know it yet!




Evil Hank Jr


THIS was something The Hubby picked up at a used book store. SIGH… For the full story check out my Use Your Words post.

Believe me, THAT’S a story you don’t want to miss! 😉






We’ve been studying butterflies this month and having a lot of fun (for more on the butterflies click HERE ).

When they finished making their chrysalides , their butts were hanging out. Completely freaked Colin out.

Colin – EWWW!! They lost their butts!! Their BUTTS!!!!!!!




I over hear a conversation between Joshua and Deanna. I think I should be worried.

Deanna – Who would you put in a well?

Joshua – What????

Deanna – Y’know, like on “Silence of the Lambs”??  ‘It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again.’

Joshua – Uh, no one!!!

Deanna – There has to be SOMEONE!!

Joshua – Well, who would YOU put in a well??

Deanna – For like Niall from One Direction. For dislike, that annoying guy that says YEP on “Storage Wars”. (insert evil laugh here)

Joshua – Oh, well……. Maybe Will Smith.




Colin – Are Q and O brothers?




We are doing our normal, weekly shopping at Kroger. We have the normal, usual 2 buggies full.

I am trying to make the bagger understand that he doesn’t have to try to fit everything into one buggy because it’s just not going to work.

The cashier pipes up and gets him to listen. He then turns to me and says, “What is this, like a month’s worth?”

Me – Umm… No, it’s like a week’s worth…..

The look on his face was PRICELESS. It never gets old… LOL




We did a bunch of crafts on Monday for St. Patrick’s Day.


3D Shamrocks Collage


3 D Shamrocks – tutorial HERE


Leprechaun Houses Collage


We made leprechaun houses out of the boxes I won from Pick Your Plum.

I had to make finger paint… All of our paint brushes are missing!!!

I used 1 cup of flour and added water until I liked the consistency. Then I added a few drops of green food coloring.


Shamrock Collage


Tissue paper shamrocks.



Merrows by Cailey Pooka by Colin


We read Magic Tree House : Leprechauns and Irish Folklore : Research Guide

Then I asked Cailey and Colin to pick their favorite fairy and draw it.


St. Patrick's Day Breakfast


And that is what we had for breakfast! Green orange juice and green pancakes! The kids LOVED them!!!


There you go! The past month in our house. 😀


Don’t forget to check out all the AMAZING bloggers participating this  month!

My prompt :

10 years after your death, a person finds a collection of your writing in a thrift store. For some reason, a friend of yours or perhaps a stalker compiled blog posts, facebook updates, short stories, poems….anything you write…into a book, and that book ended up, mistakenly or otherwise, in a donation box. What would you hope this friend of yours included in this compilation? What would you hope the person who buys and reads it would gather about you, about the world, and about himself or herself?

It was submitted by:                               




I think that video really sums up the way I want people to think of me when I’m gone.

Remember the good things and leave out all the rest.

I would hope that the book included any time that I made someone happy. Anytime that I made them smile or feel good about themselves. Anytime that I was helpful.

I hope that it would leave out the times I was short tempered or selfish. Anytime that I snapped at someone or was rude.

None of those terrible poems I wrote in high school!!! YEESH!!! What was I thinking?? 

None of the letters I wrote to my cousin! LOL There’s no telling the crazy things I wrote. Although Amy could probably still tell you all about them! 😉

None of those silly notes I wrote in school and folded into a thousand different shapes.  (Can you say EMBARRASSING???)

I would want people to feel good reading it. Good about themselves. See that the world is still a good place, filled with good people.
