Sophie eating her decorated Halloween cookie~
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
So a few weeks ago at Church, the girls came home with little sandwich bags with little beans and a wet papertowel in them. I must have been super preoccupied that day because over the weekend, I found a little baggie in the little compartment in the passenger door. The Bean! It was growing in the dark! So we planted it and here you go! I think that this little bean really wants to grow! Kaelyn is very proud! Emma can't find hers........

The fine print: Find a safe quiet place free (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.) Don't look at me, I just cut and paste.
1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents.
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves.
5. Answer these questions:
Describe the contents of your handbag. Seems that I have a pen fetish and didn't know it! wallet, make-up (that I never wear), 3 Musketeers (its 45% fat free!), LiveSavers Mints, Skeeter Stick, Seasame Street Book that belongs to my nephews, Keys, my MIL's camera (I have it in there so I remember to give it back to her, I swear!), hairspray, Pink body spray from The Gap, a couple hair do-dads, a smashed penny from Navy Pier in Chicago, Mary Kay Lip Balm, change, microwave popcorn ( I have no idea?), Little Petshop electronic game that I mushave confiscated! YEP I think thats enough crapola!
What's the most important thing in your handbag? Wallet and keys.....can't lose those
What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag? prolly the popcorn!
What's the smallest thing in your handbag? smashed penny from Navy Pier
Is there anything illegal in your handbag? Not to my knowledge
Now, I hear by tag the following good sports who will gleefully share their goods for the good of the cause:
The Mom Jen at Cheaper Than Therapy
Shannon over at The Nut House
Jamey over at Walking By Faith
Shelle over at Blok Thoughts
So yesterday I offered to watch my 2 nephews and 1 neice while their schools were closed due to a mad man on the loose yesterday....long story. Anyway everyone was happily playing outside when Joey, the soon to be 8 year old came in the house.
Joey: Aunt Brooks, I went down the slide and got my butt all wet.
Me: Let me see, Oh its not bad. When you are all done playing outside I will wash your shorts for you.
Joey: I am done playing.
Me: OK, let me got get you a pair of shorts, give me yours and I will put them in the washer.
Joey: Can you get me the shorts first, I don't want anyone to see my doodle.
Me: Joey! Where did you get the word Doodle? (laughing)
Joey: Thats what we call it! (laughing)
So I get him some shorts. Since I only have girls, I find a pair of orange cotton shorts, but they had a bow at the waist and he made me take it off!
A few hours later, I mentioned the word Doodle. I got laughs and snickers from Ben, the youngest. Sarah, 6 started laughing too.
Sarah: Aunt Brooks, boys have Doodles.
Like I was already supposed to know this.
Me: Well then what do girls have?
So I later find out from my SIL that the boys got the discription Doodle from watching the Simpsons movie with their dad. And Sarah got China from her little friend. Her friend was saying, "Vagina" but Sarah didn't get it (I'm glad at the age of 6) so she thought that she said China.
So thats my story on boys and girls and Doodles and China.
