More Random Funnies

I'm not feeling great today. I don't really know why... I just don't have much energy or motivation. I'm stressed out about a few things, and overall, it's just kind of an off day. The cookies I keep pigging out on aren't helping, so I thought maybe it would help to think about all that I'm grateful for and focus on all the things that are going well in my life. So to cheer myself up, (and maybe you too!) and have a much needed laugh, I'll post some random funnies from days gone by...

  • The other day, Celeste was throwing a bit of a tantrum and Charity... who is just barely talking rolled her eyes and muttered... "ISSUES" I didn't even know she knew that word!

  • Benny took the telephone off the hook which he knew was not allowed. Daddy asked him to hang-up the phone. So Benny lifts the phone up in the air over his head. Daddy thought he was being defiant, so he repeated, "Benny I asked you to hang the phone up." So Benny reached even higher, and Jon started getting frustrated because he thought he wasn't listening. So he asked again, and as Benny was straining to reach even higher, he realized that all Benny heard was "up" and he was trying to cooperate! So finally Jon figured it out and gave him a hug.

  • Charity needed her diaper changed so she tugged on my pants and said... "Momma... I poo-poo..." then she scrunched up her face and added, "BIG TIME."
  • Jon was playing with the kids and found a "my little pony". He said, "Awww, look Charity, it's a my little pony!" She got angry and said, "NO!!" Surprised by her response he firmly said, "Yes... this is a my little pony" Charity: NO!! She reached up, snatched the pony away from him, and said, "MINE!" and walked away.
Here's my little rag doll baby!This was when Benny was 4 days old. You can tell by the look on her face that Celeste wasn't too impressed with this little crying creature who was invading her home and consuming her mommy and daddy's attention. Little Charity being crazy!

Benny's thinking... "What in the world is this?"

This was the bathtub after the frosting disaster... and I mean DISASTER. (See previous post)

Our little hillbilly girl!!

Celeste being silly at dinnertime

And naturally, Benny had to do it too!

Benny was so tired one day he just crashed on all his stuffed animals!


Celeste meeting her first clown (who was pretty unenthusiastic). She certainly doesn't look too wowed by his antics!

This was me and Drew Carey at the Cleveland Cavs finals game. I took Jon to the game for Father's day and we made these goofy hats. Drew Carey was so nice, he wore our crazy hat and even posed for a picture.

Yummy piggy toes!

That Benny! He's a wild one!

I LOVE my boys!!

Can you BELIEVE I got my hubby to dress-up like this for halloween?!!! This was on the way to the church halloween party. Just to make me laugh, he stopped by the KFC drive-thru, he did his best pooh-bear impression and asked for a packet of honey. The cashier said, "Um... ok... is that all?" When we got to the window, she saw the enormous pooh-bear and busted up laughing. Then Jon said, "Goodness, I've got a rumbly in my tumbly" in his pooh-bear voice, and sped off. It was hilarious! I bet that girl is still talking about it.

Good times! While this has been fun to go down memory lane for a few minutes, I know that the best antidote to depression is service to help someone else. In fact, President Hinckley said, "Selfishness is the cause of most of our misery." So I guess, I'll get off my lazy depressed butt and go to work! :)

This is one of the greatest blog posts I have ever read. You had me laughing out loud. I love the Mini-Me picture. You three look so cute. The picture and story with Jon as Winnie the Pooh. That was awesome. Making this post is a great idea to help a bad day better. I will have to keep the idea in mind for when I am having a hard day. I hope your day is going better now. If you ever need a friend to talk to, I am always here for you. All the pictures of your kids were adorable. You have a really cute family. Thanks for making me smile today.

Wonderful Nicole! Thanks for sharing and bringing a smile to my face. (See you were helping others even while blogging.)

You brightened up my "blustery day" with the Pooh Bear story. I love the way you guys have so much fun together as a family.

Jill said...

Great post! How do you know Drew Carey? That's cool! I LOVE the pooh story - you guys have SO much fun together! :o)

Hi Jill!
Ha! We don't know Drew Carey, we just saw him with his huge entourage at the game, and Jon dared me to ask him to wear our goofy hat and take a picture! He was a good sport. Thanks for your kind words. :)

You have a huge amount of great memories and blessings. There is a great talk by President Hinkley that I can get to you sometime. I like to read it during my off days. I'm also doing some studying on my mood swings and my cycle - if you want any info on what I'm studying just let me know.

Nicole, I loved reading about your family adventures. It's so crazy sometimes, but that's what memories are made of. I think you have a great outlook on life, even if sometimes you feel like you're in a slump. Thanks for sharing that quote from Pres. Hinkley. Another way to feel better is to get out and do some service. Take your kids along and keep it simple. There are so many teaching opportunities that come along the way and something about focusing on others' problems seems to diffuse the immensity of our own.
Take care!

You are halarious! I love all those stories and pictures! I hear ya on the feeling down every now and again. It made feel more "normal" to see that even YOU could feel this way every once in a while. Sometimes it seems like all we are doing is the dishes! But when we step back and look at all the things we have to be thankful sure makes it hard to be grumpy. You are such a good mom, and wife! Thanks for your good example. But I still don't know when you find the time to make such a long and fantastic blog. But I'm glad you do. Keep it up. You made me smile today! In fact, you made me laugh out loud! Love ya!
