a little blouse

I had a little chuckle at my oldest today :) I was going through her clothes ... looking for stuff to purge. I picked up a flowered blouse that I thought might be getting a little smallish ... waved it at Halo ... and innocently asked, "Can we get rid of this?"

"Hey! Put that down! Put it back!" Halo erupted ... "That's my ... that's my BABYSITTING BLOUSE!!!  I almost always wear it when I go babysitting ... and I'm going to wear it TONIGHT!" 

A few hours later ... all set for babysitting in THE BLOUSE -- with her trusty "babysitting bag" slung over her shoulder :)

a little forward-thinker and list-maker

We went to a grad party on June 3rd. Two days later, forward-thinking Foofie asked ...

"So what happens next? Is Jordan gonna get married?"
"So what's he going to do now?"
"Well ... after graduation, people usually go to college or start a job or continue working ..."
"I think he should get a job at Dairy Queen," she said. (FYI, I worked at DQ in high school, so this wasn't completely out of thin air.)
"He's actually planning to go to college ... in Illinois."
"He's not going to live with his parents anymore???"
"Not while he's in college ..."
"Hmmm ... interesting."

Also ... here are some of her lists I recently stumbled upon :)

Apparently she wanted a minutes to seconds conversion chart :)
She likes men and women ... but she loves girls and boys :) She liked dogs ... but then it looks like she changed her mind :) And I'm wondering what "fulf" is ...
This is a list she made at Costco ...
P.S. Foof recently told me I'm tall for my age :)

a little album: cabin 2012 part I

Yay!  May was here again ... I think May is my favorite month!  And now June is here again.  Isn't it just lovely???  I love summertime!  We had a wonderful beginning to our "summer" at the cabin :)

Little HoneyBun likes badminton :)
The boat wasn't "in" yet ... so the kids did some canoeing :)
There was a tea party ...
and the boys were invited too :)
It rained off and on ...
We played games ...

I waited patiently to photograph this purple martin -- {my father-in-law has been waiting for about eight years for them to find these houses}
And Buddy improved his aim ...

a little bit amusing II

Now it's Foofie's turn to provide amusement :)

Buddy was in the car talking about a lawn business he wants to start {he was inspired by Brian the bobcat driver} ... and he was saying that he hopes he will still be in operation far in the future ... when he is twenty ...

"Who are you going to marry anyway???"  Foofie asked him ... thinking of Buddy's future ...

Buddy didn't answer -- probably because thinking about a business is far more exciting than pondering marriage.

"Well ... THIS is how I'm going to marry."  Foofie informed him.  "I'm going to ask someone to make this to happen ... I'm going to be in a square ... and I'm going to stand with a wedding dress on and a whole group of men will be in a circle around me ... and all the men are going to wear wedding clothes.  And then I'm going to pick the man who I want.  And then I marry him."

Laughter filled our vehicle ... 

"What's so funny?  I'm not funny.  Then how are you supposed to marry???" responded Foofie.  {I actually got all of this on video ... but it's more like audio as all you can see is my dashboard ... and the voices are too quiet to bother posting here.}

Then I seized the opportunity to explain "how {Lord willing} you are supposed to marry" :)


Foofie refers to her mouth as a hotel.  So ... if she is no longer too keen on eating a food that she previously liked ... she says, "Those taste buds left my hotel."


One afternoon recently, Foofie was telling me to close the garage.  "We've got to close the garage to keep the bandits away.  Bandits like to go into garages ... and you never know when a bandit is going to be out.  Remember when a bandit went into Grandma and Grandpa's garage and stole stuff???"
