edgar likes snow

After he stared at the snow for a while and even tasted it, he came around and started playing in it! It was fun being in the snow, but now I am ready for some cocoa and cuddle time! Stay warm everyone!

    Our Chihuahua, Dexter hates the snow . Dad shovels an 8 x 8 ft area in the grass for him and he still only stands on 2 paws and jumps around. The cold stings the bottoms of his paws.

    That ball you sent to S. was a hoot! How did you find out about it? I've never heard of anything like that.

Playing a bit of catch up...In August, We were able to visit the Windy City, Chicago thanks to the Byers parents and had such a great time..... In September, I took Drew to the Louisville Slugger Museum (on Smithsonian day)...it was a fun date and his first time going, so I enjoyed it even more watching him "be a kid" interact and hit a high speed pitch-yeah, using Ken Griffey Jr.'s bat and he got to pose with Mickey Mantle's bat....In October, Bella and Edgar finally met and we all got to visit the St. James Art Fair....Later that month, Edgar and I celebrated our birthdays early with a cook out and great friends! Drew surprised me with flowers the day of my birthday and my pepper mill from the Art fair...he is so great...he knows exactly how to please and is always willing-LOVE HIM :) Enjoy the photos.

why we love kids

I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'

On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.'

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover.. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'

5) POLICE # 1
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

6) POLICE # 2
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.
'It sure is,' I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?'

While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers & wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'
'And why not, darling?'
'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.
The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.' (I want this line used at my funeral!)

A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother.. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'

A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.
'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out.
'What have you got there, dear?'
With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear!'

  • bruski
    Don't you just LOVE it when people say stuff like that?^ Oh well, you might as well get used to it...because it never stops. Even when you have a child, they immediately start asking "So, when are you having another one?"
