Even More Awesomeness

 

 

 

These people and their creativity with wheelchair costumes cause me to hang my head in shame.

Ahhhhhhh-some!

Dave Engledow is my kind of Dad.

Look at these adorable pictures he created for his daughter, Alice Bee.  I think his captions are perfect.

OMG! A Halloween Craft for the Lazy and Cheap

Which is right. up. my. alley.

In my current neighborhood, Halloween is a big deal, and over half of the nieghborhood really goes for broke at Halloween, maybe even moreso than at Christmas.  Across the street, my son’s friend sets up an elaborate walk-thru haunted house on their front lawn every year.

It’s not like I’m going to win any competitions or anything, but I love putting up lots of Halloween decorations.  However, I rarely seem to have the time or money to do as much as I’d like.

Ta-daaaaa!

The easiest freaking Halloween craft I think I have ever seen.

And those are going to be PERFECT lining my walkway.

God.

Why couldn’t I have thought of that myself?

The Best of the Kids at Comic Con 2012

Is it Wednesday already?

I have never attended Comic Con, but as I live a mere hour and half away, I know many that have.  One day I must go, just to see the spectacle.

Thursday Chillaxin’

I know, the kids have been out of school for quite the while now, haven’t they?

Everybody is definitely starting to get on each other’s nerves, and I know many of you have already suffered through weeks of horrific heat.  Things are just starting to really heat up where I am, and all I can do is look at my husband and exclaim, “HOW DID ANYBODY LIVE WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING? HOW?!”

So I present to you a song that is almost guaranteed to lower your blood pressure by a few points.

To My Husband on the Eve of His 41st Birthday

My Dear,

I know that I don’t really talk about you much on this blog.

Not because I don’t love you, but simply because I’m not good at sharing.

Can you believe that we have known each other now for twenty one years, been married for ten, and raising kids for nine?

You are a Gemini and I am a Pisces, but we were both born in the Year of the Pig, which means that 95% of the time, we pretty much order the exact same thing at restaurants.

You are truly the best father a child could ask for, other than you don’t know anything about computers.  Or writing.

Oh, and the fact that you are a Republican and don’t believe in global warming.  I spend more time with the kids, so I’m pretty sure I’ve got the political viewpoint thing wrapped up, at least until they are much older.

But your strengths definitely outweigh your weaknesses, and I never actually thought I would be the “nice” parent.  Or at the least the “nicer” parent, as I certainly get my fair share of complaining.

However, this may just be with our son, and our daughter just might have you wrapped around her petite finger.  We’ll see if time shows you giving her money and the car keys behind my back.

Let’s just say I won’t be surprised.

So on the first anniversary of your 40th birthday, I just wanted to let you know that your three whole months of labeling me “my older wife” are at an end.

At least for the next nine months or so.

Love,

Your Adoring Wife (who is the same age as you)

 

My Parents Were Awesome

Now, I know I told you I would have the downsides to homeschooling for you today, but then I realized it was Wednesday.

Nobody wants to hear complaints on a Wednesday.

So, I bring to you the tumblr My Parents Were Awesome, and some of the awesomeness contained therein.
