Beach Boys

Awhile ago I was craving some Beach Boys music.  My Daddy loves the Beach Boys and so I grew up listening to them.  Well, I listened to the oldies station for days and never heard them. I was so disappointed.  I finally decided to buy one of their c.d.s.

Since then the kids and I listen to the c.d. about once a week or so. Lately, it has been MUCH more often.  Firecracker loves the song, "Let's Go Surfing Now" and "409".  Sweet pea too will ask for songs, but they differ depending on the day.

Listening to the kids sing their own versions of these songs cracks me up.  The other day, Sweet pea was singing "409" and her lyrics went something like this: 
"giddy up, giddy up four oh line. Don't touch my four oh line...."
=)

Firecracker is better he gets most of the lyrics right but the other day I had to correct him and tell him it was "409" not four oh time.

Haha!  I Love my silly kiddos.

Have a good day!

Old School Batman

My parents found the old school version of Batman (we're talking the one staring Adam West) on their cable the other week.  My Dad decided to record them, because he knew the boys would love it.  Boy oh boy was he right!  As soon as we get to Gram and Papa's house Firecracker wants to watch Batman.

I have no qualms about letting him watch this version of Batman, because it's so tame.  Sure there are villians and fighting, but it's not violent, if that makes sense.  

Anyway, the other day we were at my parent's house and Firecracker was watching Batman.  I was catching snippets of the show and one made me laugh.  It still makes me laugh.  There was a scene where Cat woman had captured Robin and was about to feed Robin to her pet tigers.  She had just finished her monologue about her evil plan and Robin looked at her and said, "Cat woman, you're not a nice person!"  Oh my goodness, how that made me laugh!!  

Just take a moment to think about that.  In 50ish years of television our insults have gone from "you're not a nice person" to every curse word in the book.  It's sad.  Anyway, I gotta say I'm enjoying Batman too, but not as much as Firecracker.

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday, Mr. Ham!

Technically, yesterday was Mr. Ham's birthday, but since it was a Sunday I didn't post.  So, happy belated birthday, Mr. Ham!!!

I love you and your crazy outlook on life.  I'm thankful that God made you my little brother!

Have a great day!

Chatter Boxes

My children are chatter boxes.  They talk constantly.  You may think I'm exaggerating, if you think that then you need to spend a day with my munchkins.  There is no such thing as a quiet moment, except for nap time.  

The munches talk about the color of the grass, their imaginary friend, D.F., their favorite t.v. shows, the kids at school that didn't share with them etc.  Most of the time I'm cool with it.  My Mama always told me (and still tells me) that if you don't wanna listen to them when their little, they won't wanna tell you things when they're older, because to them it's all important.  However, there are days (mostly mornings) when their nonstop chatter is not my favorite.  Oh well, God has given me 2 little nonstop information spouts.  I will be grateful they still wanna talk to me =).

Have a great day!

100,000

This last weekend our van, Big Mama, rolled into 100,000 miles.  We bought her with only 11,000 miles on her.  We have had her five years so when you do the math we have put just under 18,000 miles on her every year.

Big Mama has been an amazing vehicle.  (Now, I feel like I should knock on wood) She has had very few issues considering how much we ask of her.  I'm thankful for a dependable vehicle.  I just hope Big Mama will last several more years :)

Have a great day!

Questions About Frozen

Ok, so Elsa doesn't know how to melt the snow right?  Think about it then, at the beginning of the movie the girls are playing in the great hall in a ton of snow.  They acted like this was a pretty regular thing.  Soooo my question is, where did the snow go?  Did it melt? You have to wonder what in the world was going through the servant's minds every morning.  What were they thinking?  "Oh, man!  I've got to mop up 10,000 gallons of water again today?!"  
If it didn't melt (which of course in the movie the snow she created didn't, but it was different circumstances), the servants must have really been confused.  "What?  It's 90 degrees outside!  How did we get 10 feet of snow in here?!"  

Just thinking... Yeah, I know I'm crazy.  I wonder all kinds of wackadoodle stuff.  Welcome to one small corner of my brain. ;)

Have a great day!

Tea

The Hubs and I are slightly addicted to sweet tea.  The two of us go through at least one gallon every day.  I know, it's a sickness.  Anyway, to avoid having to make tea Every. Stinkin'. Day. I have taken to making several gallons at once.  I started out making 2 gallons at a time, but that meant I had to make tea every other day.  So I've kept increasing how much I make.

The other night I made 9, yes, 9, gallons of tea! That should last us a week.  I think, I'll have to stop upping the amount, because I have no idea where else I'd put it... Haha!  So, yeah, we're addicts...

Have a great day!
