Vlogemotion - RAGE!


So today is Tim's first Vlogemotion carnival @ Fort Thompson! You have to link up and check everyone's out...this is gonna be a blast!!! =)

Take a gander at my 1st ever LIVE video on my blog...a couple of things to note. I did this ONE time only. I don't have time for multiple takes...so Regis and Kelly...if you are seeing this....CALL ME!!! LOL!

My video is a little blurry because I use my camera and I guess I did not focus the lens...WHOOPSIE!!!

My video is about 2 minutes so it might take a couple of minutes to load on your browser...if so, open up another window and Blog Hop...but be sure to come back!!! =)

Please leave me feedback! I really want to get better at this!

Tee Ball Temptations...


My how we began this week with a bang...I have each post coming in sections because we were not home one evening this week thanks to the beginning of Tee Ball, and Baseball! QB2 is now 4 going on 55, and he is really taking to playing sports like QB1..of course, not without playing a little in the sand for good measure!

This week, Head Coach, Cheerleader, QB1 & QB2 REALLY lived up to their names....could Head Coach BE the Head Coach of any more teams???? I don't think so....something tells me that he should be applying for the Twins, Vikings, Wild and Timberwolves because I am not sure how he keeps it all straight...OK, well to be honest...we don't keep it all straight...Let's just say that Head Coach left the Tee sitting in the garage..and Cheerleader, yep trucked on home to grab it while they had a 15 minute "stretching and catching" session! LOL...

Here are a couple pics I took....Have a blessed Weekend!!! =)

Word Verification Wednesday....


Just a lovely little way to make fun of all the crazy words that we type in honor of our friends! These words came straight out of YOUR blogs this week...I promise! Only truth here!

Let the definitions begin:

Wornis - An expression used by all 2,3 and 4 year old children...."Mom, have I WORNIS"?

Ghtsi - I "Ghtsi" what I wanti.... You ght my drift?

Ettol - QB1...do you hear me ETTOL?

Clucho
- Obviously, this is the abreviated version for the Clutch/Poncho that we are all carrying around....Don't we all have one????

Fulmow- This is the chowing your children do at the dinner table when you have not allowed them to "snack" in between meals. They are in Fulmow mode.

I am having the largest WRISIS this week....(this would be a web crisis)....check back for more posting on this one.

btcrack - Again....there goes that 14 year old teenage male inside my computer getting a chuckle. Had to throw that one in for a little laugh!

Andyncon- Do you know an Andy? You might want to call him and tell him that he is being conned by all is friends at word verification....obviously this one is a little bitter.

And my FAVORITE of the week:

mengagme- pronounced (men-gag-me)...ha. Yes, I think we have all felt this at one time or another but perhaps word verification should leave its thoughts at the door.

There are a couple of topics that she selects and then you go to town selecting one of the topics and writing about it. So, here are THE PROMPTS: 

1.) If I sent you four hundred dollars today what is ONE thing you would spend it on and why. ps I want my change.

2.) What are your kids talking about?

3.) Tell us about a local news story that's all the buzz right now in your neck of the woods.

4.) Share some blogging advice.

5.) Tell us about that time at the playground when that thing happened.

Logic...4 Yr Old Style


QB2: Mom, I have Boo-GARS in my ears..

Mom: It's probably wax, go upstairs and get me a Q-tip and I will clean them out.

QB2: I don't want you to clean out my ears, my brains are in there.

Mom: Yes, brains are in there but you can still clean out the junk in there its ear wax.

QB2: Nah, never mind...I'll just pick it like I do when I have Boo-GARS in my nose!

Yes, I understand, Q-Tips can be intimidating!

I♥Faces...Me and My Buddy


This weeks I♥Faces entry is Me and My Buddy. I had to think about this one really hard because my 2 boys have TONS of pictures together and really our BESTEST BUDDIES....But, this was the one that I kept coming back to... Our little QB's have birthdays that are 3 years and a week apart so that means that we have Birthday week at our house.


We decided to turn our backyard into a baseball field..with the legitimate Mascot from the Minnesota Twins...TC...He was amazing!!! It was July, He was in a Mascot suit and somehow managed to take pictures with everyone and play a baseball game...since then the boys have NEVER looked at the Twins the same and as you can tell from the picture....They really are buddies. When we see TC at the games, HE REMEMBERS the boys and even tho he does not speak (to anyone but me)...the friendship has carried on...


This picture was the 1st time that QB1 saw him coming up the hill and into our party...just PRICELESS I tell you!!!


One of my fondest memories as a parent!


Good luck to all the entries this week, I am sure that all of them are fabulous! I have a lot of commenting to catch up on...=)

Word Verification Dictionary..

My day starts out a little something like this...Open Eyes, Wonder who blogged....yep, the kids are still sleeping...creep to the computer and then WHAM:


FVOGMN..Really? OK...If you must start my day off with absolute non sense than I am going to fire it back at you with a post that will make your little keyboard spin! An homage to all things word verification begins now:

HUNSPOT: I'll got get my HUN and tell him where his SPOT is...that should go over like a ton of bricks.. Thanks for the brilliant idea blogger. Next Stop: Marriage Counseling.

MONFORT: Of course this is a fort that is made on Mondays...doesn't everyone do this..It's called a CUBE blogger, yes, we all work in our little MONFORTS and check blogs all day long...are you trying to rat me out???

SINFAR: Well, Yes, I hope so...thanks for noticing, I think.

SPLELCH: In my house that would be lovingly referred to as the "SPLATTER BELCH" what other definition could it have? This is a counterpart of FOUGH (the farting cough) and CART (the coughing fart)...sorry for the expletives but this whole SPLELCH thing is a little out of control.

STOOLBUS - Yes, this one popped up and I am not kidding...is anyone else starting to think that Bloggers random word verifications are NOT SO random? Seems to me like we a 15 yr old male at the helm of the keyboard who is thinking up all sorts of things to make my stomach churn.

YTEDNES- I'm hearing Star Trek..and I can't shake William Shatners voice..."Scotty, He's got YTEDNES...lets get outta here".

SETSO - Something I randomly mommy voice at my children..again, where does Blogger know about all my indiscretions..."No, you can't have a popcicle..because I SETSO."

and finally...
NALITORM - Ahh yes, the drug that will calm all of your word verification nightmares and allow you to sleep restfully...until 4:15am when all the other bloggers are up with the 1st post of the day...

Now mind you, I absolutly DON'T Mind when my friends are using the verification, I just don't understand where they come from? Could they be real words?


Do you use Word Verification? Now, I am curious...Do Share!!!!

I missed I♥Faces...Bummer!!!

I missed it! Yep, it is official...I am an idiot. Since when do they cut it off on Tuesday night? I always thought it was Wednesday...Oh Well.

This is the picture that I would have submitted...

Could have gone either way for Messy Face or Pouting....

Good luck to all y'all fools who didn't tell me...=)
