Last costumes 

I saw a blog with the cutest last minute costumes for moms to be!  Thought I would share here


Also, we had to have story books characters last week for school and I wanted something cheap and easy. My daughter loves the book Library Mouse so that’s the book she chose. It was super easy and last minute. 


One of the boys took a counting Starwars book. 

And then there is a football player. Who read a football chapter books


What are your quick and easy costume ideas for the mom out there that has had a tough couple weeks and didn’t get to buy a costume yet?  

Dang good time…

  
My mom took Roostie back to school shopping for the first time at Justice. Roostie was so excited she could hardly stand it. 

I texted my mom to say that Roostie had said, “I had a beautiful time with boo!” 

My mom shares this tidbit with me:

  
Roostie said to Boo,  “This was a dang good time.” Boo said, “Can you say that word?” Roostie retorts, “I was just trying it out on you. Let’s keep this between us!”

I can see it now!  Boo whatever you do… 

 

Yeah, I always sit around bored!

My kids asked me to do a few things for them tonight after they went to bed. I told them I was busy doing things I needed to do and WOOKIE  pipes up and says like, “Sit in bed, text  and look on Amazon and stuff like that?” And I am like sit back and pick my nose and all those other things. Rah yells, “WELL THAT MAKES 3 OF US!” (Her, me and Brocky I guess) 

I hope she just remembers this advice… 

 

Legos…the root of all evil? 

  
How many times have you stepped on a Lego and thought your life was over?  How many times did you swear if that happens again you will throw all of those little evil pieces away?  

  
Well, for a change legos saved the day!  Kids were restless, making me a nervous wreck around my mother in laws house. They were having competitions to see who could best jump over the cactus in her backyard!  Uhh Yeah, that’s not a TERRIBLE idea kids!    

  
So, I suddenly had a brilliant idea. I told the kids get the Legos and count out 20 pieces.  Any pieces they want. Sit back to back, and lay pieces out but you can’t look at each other’s… Then I told them to build the tallest tower they could with the pieces, next all must be attached but make the longest creation you can, then use all pieces to make the letter of your first name and so on and so on. I set a timer for each activity.  Easy tasks one minute, harder ones 3. This kept the kids busy for a solid 45 minutes  and then it was time to leave for dinner. 

  
I’m not sure where my idea came From, but I am so thankful it kept them quiet, contained, out of the cactus and they had to be creative and competitive. 

My favorite design was when I let the girls team up and boys team up and create the Eiffel Tower. I think. Their designs are great!  

  

Next time I step on a Lego I might be less apt to toss them…instead maybe I’ll push a kid into a cactus.  I JOKE I JOKE! 

 

  

Sometimes brothers are mean….

  

Brocky B and my mother in law have been reading lots of stories from the bible. Last night they read the story in the bible about God kicking satan out of heaven (Adam and Eve). And now B is trying to convince Roostie that she isn’t having an allergic reaction (see the post from the other day) but that satan came and touched her. (Brothers are sooooo bad sometimes 😏)Thankfully she isn’t falling for it…

  
BUT, that’s not the end…Then I told my mother in law that my eyes were itching. Without missing a beat Brocky B says, “I think satan came and tickled you in the eyes!”

So, the real question is should I be happy that we have moved on from bodily function talk to Satan?
