Mommytography 365/114-119

You have been warned. Easter threw up all over these pictures.

114: Some bunny likes pink and purple!

My basket. Isn't it cute?

115:  Easter morning bunny visit

We got a visit from the bunny on Easter morning.  A perk of my awesome neighborhood.
 116:  Kung Fu Boy
We've been watching The Karate Kid (the new one) a few too many times. My son thinks he's Jaden Smith.

117:  Age 7 going on...

I just liked this one of my daughter, and felt like she looked so much older in it!

118:  Peek-a-boo

My niece.
 119:  Snuggling with Poppa

Poppa has been in and out of the hospital lately, so this was so much-needed Poppa snuggle-time!

In a galaxy far, far away...

I awake. Startled.

My newlywed husband is sitting straight up in bed.

His eyes are wide open, staring at me with fear and urgency.

He is trying to tell me something, but I'm barely awake. What is he saying?

I hear the word "DEATH."

Then his speech becomes momentarily clear.

"The Death Star plans! We have to find them!"

Then he closes his eyes, turns over, and falls back asleep.

And this is how I found out that my husband talks in his sleep. (I already knew he was a geek.)

This is for Mama Kat's writing workshop.  The prompt was... "3.) What is going on in the bedroom? Describe a memorable sleeper."

Happy Easter or... Death to Peeps!

I love Peeps.  It's a bad habit I inherited from my father (thanks, dad!).  My husband thinks they are the worst candy ever invented.  And yet -- the Easter Bunny still gives him Peeps every year!  Hmmm... I wonder how that happens?

Anyway, this year, he had some homicidal tendencies toward those poor Peeps.  He said he was going to microwave his Peeps. Evil hubby.

They deserve it! Those Peeps with their wee beady eyes sayin', "Oh, you're gonna eat us!!!"

Help me!

He's dead, Jim.

Someone is very pleased with himself.

Mommytography 365/106-113

This week was Spring Break for my kids, so we took a family vacation to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.  Enjoy some pictures from our trip.  I'm sure I'll be sharing some more!

 106:  Into the abyss

I took a million pictures in the cave, but I chose this one because it shows how HUGE the cave really is.
107:  It's a good thing they're vegetarians...

We met a few friendly dinos at Dinosaur World.

108:  Relaxing at the cabin

I *heart* fires.
109:  Hubby loves golf.

Golfing in the rolling hills of Kentucky.

110:  I did it!

After a bit of apprehension, the boy fed some birds at "Kentucky Down Under."
111:  Kangaroo!

That's a young kangaroo at Kentucky Down Under.  We got to walk in the enclosure with the kangaroos!

112:  Nothing fancy.

I had to take a picture of this.  I want to know how many parishioners this church has.
113: Water, water everywhere...

The water at Nolin Lake (where our cabin was located) was VERY high, but they couldn't let out the dam because everywhere else was high, too!  This was a picture I took at a park where we tried to fish.

Five Question Friday! 4/15/11

I had to do this Five Question Friday today because I have a really good answer for one of them!

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?

The sounds of kids playing outside.  My neighborhood comes alive once the temps hit the 40's (hey, it's Michigan -- we don't need much!).  Kids on bikes, scooters, playing hockey, out in the park.  I can just open one of my doors and hear the chatter of kids.  It's really a nice noise after the silence of winter.

2. What was your best birthday ever?

Best?  I don't know if I can say best.  But, I remember when my mom made me TWO cakes.  A bunny cake and a cake that spelled out my name -- so 7 little cakes K-R-I-S-T-E-N.  Those cakes were the BOMB.

3. What is your favorite dessert?

Anything involving peanut butter. 

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?

Drum roll please...

I saw the lights go on behind me, and started to snicker to myself. 

I thought, "No way I'm getting a ticket TODAY." 

I pulled over into the nearest parking lot.  The police officer walked up to my car as I rolled down the window on my minivan.  He peered in the window as I pulled my purse over from the passenger side seat. 

I put my purse on my 9-month pregnant belly and reached inside to get my license. The officer looked down at my huge belly and asked "Ummm... where were you driving to?"  I let him know I was just going to the store, but I knew he thought he had a woman-in-labor on his hands!  I got a polite "please drive slower," and was on my way. 

And THAT ladies is a guaranteed way to get out of a ticket!

By the way... my water broke the next day! 

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?

Snooze.  Snooze.  Snooze.  Snooze.  Crap -- what time is it?

99: 'Scuse me, pardon me, coming through...

Duck game at our "Bunny Day" -- neighborhood Easter event.
 100:  Yo! Hubby da Bunny Representin'!

My hubby got volunteered to be the bunny.  What a good hubby!
 101:  One ear up, one ear down

My dog's standard begging pose.  She has it mastered.
 102: Bird on a limb
In my back yard one evening.

 103:  Bird party
Once word got out we had a stocked bird feeder, the birds were having a party at our house.
 104:  GHULK!
Yes, GHULK -- That's what my daughter named herself.  As in "Girl Hulk."  GHULK. 
 105: Should I warn him?

Post it Tuesday: Various species of yogis

Though I try very hard to keep my "gazeless gaze" and focus only on myself, I can't help but notice a few different species of yogis cropping up around the yoga room.  I take a deep breath, and try not to judge. 

Breathe in. Who the?

Breathe out. Really now?


Does she have a new outfit for every class?

You are so excited you can finally do wheel pose, then you happen to glance to right, and this guy is doing... WHAT???

She lets you know she's running a marathon this weekend.  Thanks.

And he is fully enlightened.  Thanks, bud.  Leave some light for the rest of us.

She's here for the latest gossip.  "Guess who is dating the YOGA INSTRUCTOR!"

Here you are, trying to breathe in, breathe out... maybe even with a little sound to it. And then you start hearing this noise. What is that? Is there an animal in the room? Is it dying?

This guy really isn't a species of yogi, but he shows up for class anyway. And somehow he gets all the girls' attention after class.  Boo.

Yo, yo, yo! Bunny in da house!

We had our neighborhood "Bunny Day" over the weekend.  After a series of unfortunate events, I ended up in charge of the event, and my hubby ended up as the bunny!  To my surprise, my daughter and son did not figure it out.

Be cool hubby bunny!

My daughter as a helper -- she ran a game.  She was so excited.
