No one laughed

I wish I had a photo of this one. My husband likes to make us all laugh by pulling the waistband of his shorts up as high as it will go (yes, I admit that after 12 years I still chuckle). Yesterday was no exception, when apparently he hiked them up when they were all outside playing. Last night when the boys were getting ready for bed, one of our sons hiked his pull-up as high as it would go - and then he asked his dad, "why did you pull your shorts up like that?" and Dad answered, "because it was funny." Our son responded dead-pan, "No one laughed."

That is hysterical! ANd the pictures of the open-mouthed boys are wonderful. Congrats on your little girl! I guess the ultrasound was right, hunh? You weren't convinced for a while!


Thanks for visiting. Hope you're getting by OK in these hazy days!

LOL, first of all, this is so weird that I seem to be "following" Christine everywhere. I promise I am not stalking her. Christine and I are friends 'in-real-life' & live in the same town. This is the 3rd time in 2 weeks that I have visited a new blog and ended up commenting directly after her!

Anyhow...I came to your blog via The Well Drained Mind. You commented on my post about my son drawing a picture of me. Thanks for sharing your portrait too!! We'll have to share again in a couple years to see if we become more beautiful in their eyes, lol.

Amy, so glad you stopped by - yes, we'll have to exchange some of those "portraits".

And Christine, yes, she actually IS a girl...and so sweet. She's very easy going - I'm SO grateful. My #2 baby was colicky, so I'm familiar with your challenge with that. It's probably another reason God has kept you on my heart for prayer :) Thanks for stopping by :)

And to both of you - sorry for the delayed response...I've been at my parents' house introducing Ms. Dimples to her Grandpa!

This is Anne Davis. I am your cousin-in-law1 :-)

I love your blog and wanted to let you know that I recommended your blog for BlogDay 2007. Here is a link to my post:

Maybe one day we will get to meet f2f. I love reading about your family - it is a terrific blog!

Hi Anne,

Thanks so much for stopping by and all your kind words and recommendation. I enjoy keeping the blog...I just wish I posted more often these days. I know there are more funny moments - but so many happen when we're "out and about" and get lost in the mental fog before I write them down. I'm actually grateful for how the blog helps me include many funny moments in our family photo albums that I would probably otherwise forget (since I'm usually quite a few months behind "real-time" when I work on the albums).

I too hope we'll have a chance to meet face-to-face sometime soon!

Thanks again :)
