Family Giggles

I was hanging with my Older Sister and my Adorable Nieces yesterday. It was a very nice and relaxing day. I love that my sister has enough children to keep my biological clock from going full out alarm. I get to play with little ones, and cuddle the baby, and giggle with the older kids that think I am the FUNNIEST PERSON EVAR!!! And then I get to go home once all six kids start getting cranky.

We were all sitting around in the living room yesterday, I had the 3 year old in my lap and she was telling me what sounds all the animals make. I was pointing to the animals on a puzzle and she would make the sounds. When I got to the horse, the 4 year old piped in with a full blown whinny from over to my left. She even included the prancing pawing at the ground with her "hoof". Too cute! Then the 3 year old told me that a chicken says "BOK". I pointed to the rooster and she told me that the rooster says..."BOK-A-DOO!"

I was in tears from laughing so hard.

Older Sister pulled out some photo albums and we got to looking at embarrassing 80's snapshots complete with firecracker bangs treasured family photos. I was flipping through her wedding album and waxing nostalgic about how I had such nice cleavage before it got all scarred up from the surgeries. Then I noticed IT.

IT was glaring back at me from those perfect wedding photos. Something I may not have noticed at the time, probably because it was fashionable then, but now? So going to use it against the BIL for tease factor...EVERY CHANCE I GET!


Not even kidding. He had it in a ponytail for the wedding, but BIL was sporting a full on-Achy Breaky-MULLET! I laughed til I peed a little. He is never going to live that down with me. HA!

I told her that most of those people in the pics were all on Facebook. Hell I was even friends with a few of them. She then did what any curious person would.

SHE GOT SUCKED INTO THE TIME-WASTING VORTEX THAT IS FACEBOOK and was late getting dinner for the family. I don't blame her. I blame Crackbook. That shit is just waaaaay too addictive. Evol, evol Crackbook. Oooh look! Someone else just friended me! Wait...what was I saying?

Oh yeah. So anyway. Lots of family giggles were had. It was a nice break from the depression that is happening on the other side of the family.

Quick update: FCBMom is home and was doing well for a couple of days, but slid downhill last night. Running a fever as of 2am (Thanks for the call FCBSis, it wasn't like any of us were sleeping or anything!) and the hospice people have declared she is now in kidney failure. She is getting plenty of Morphine and is home and resting as comfortably as possible for now.

I am heading out for another Disney trip tomorrow. Going to spend the whole week at Disney with just me and my Punk. Nice relaxing days doing nothing but riding Peter Pan and the Donald Duck ride. No rushing, no BIL, no schedule and no pressure to do anything but have a great time and make great memories with my daughter.

Hope everyone has a great week!!

I hope you have a great time at the mouse house. I wish I could get over there to meet you, but we are loading up tomorrow to leave.

Have a blast. You deserve it.

I love going through old photos embarassing. (love the phrase firecracker bangs, you totally nailed that one.)
My kids used to do all the animals sounds too and I thought they were complete angelic smart toddlers. Apparently others can do this also???
Have a fun time at wally world....Hope punk's G'ma is resting and comfortable.

As I read "IT", I just KNEW what you were talking about before I scrolled down to it...and cracked up laughing about the whole scenario.

And yes, Crackbook...I have managed to stave off the vortex. I jump on a few minutes, post an update, read some walls and look at pictures and get away as fast as I can. Someone "friended" me that I have no earthly clue as to who they are. If I don't really know them, how can they be a friend?

Hehe, I used to have THE bangs too. I call them finger-in-light socket- bangs ;)
Have tons of fun at Disney. I'm jealous. Anytime we take a trip or vacation, it's almost as much work as being at home. I need a week out of town. By myself. Oops, did I say that out loud? ;)
I got sucked into the vortex too, except mine is Myspace. Darn that stupid site for wasting so much of my time!
