Thank You Very Much

Thanks to KMama, we get some free therapy in the form of some focused gratefulness… and I’m nothing if not grateful, right? :)

Check out her carnival and maybe you’ll recognize your own list in there!

To the month of December… where the heck did you go?

Frankly, your disappearing act couldn’t come at a worse time when I have a million things to do, Thank You Very Much.

And if you’re gonna give us some snow… quit teasing us with a dusting.  At least give us a foot and let us stay home from work, Thank You Very Much!

Though I’m not so sure Itty Bit would ask for snow if it means this kind of loving quality time with Daddy?

To our lovely blog commenters who read the last True Story Tuesday post and were so very sympathetic… Thank  You Very Much for displaying your empathy by asking for a reenactment (complete with photos no less!)

For your viewing pleasure, I give you The Frightened Ballerina:

You happy?

So sweet of you to be so concerned, Thank  You Very Much :)

To my child who does NOT KNOW HOW TO EAT AN APPLE… quit that!  Thank You Very Much.

Do not listen to her… do not listen to her…

To that insane addiction I have called Etsy… we must stop meeting like this.  Truly!  Christmas shopping is done and the Paypal account can’t keep up, Thank You Very Much.  Please do not convince me… even with your cohort Word Verification…

Ahh, I feel better now.  Don’t you?  Head on over to check out some more gratefulness!

Thats exactly the kind of lovin my children get in the snow! Dads! Cant live with them, cant live with out them!

Seriously on the month of December....Im trying to hold on to the days myself, blasting Christmas music at all hours of the day all day! hehe

Kmama said...

Oh my goodness. I love that captcha. TOO FUNNY.

Your posts crack me up!! You put some serious time into them.

I'm so far behind. I haven't started wrapping and my shopping isn't even done yet. *sigh*

Thanks for linking up!

Emily said...

hahaha! Yes, I'm happy now. :)

He & Me + 3 said...

I hear you on the snow. I want to be snowed in or not at all.
cracking up at your word verification. LOL

Lauren said...

I would be happy with just a dusting of snow. Flurries are pretty much all it would take for the entire city of Tampa to shut down and declare a state of emergency!

Etsy is one tricky gal, isn't she?! I must avoid her at all costs, because I can't keep up with the costs!

Brandi said...

HA! Ok, the word verification thing was like a bad game of... what the heck is it called, Mad Gab? I'm not going to tell you how long it took me to figure it out.

He. Did. Not. throw a snowball at that poor child?!! :P

My kids eat apples the same way...so funny!!

I LOVE the frightened ballerina...classic!!

Foursons said...

Thanks so much for obliging us with a picture of you hanging off the roof in a tutu! You rock!

And Kmama is right- you put so much time into your posts and I love you for it!

Manic Mommy Meg said...

Great Thank you's!! I loved reading them! I think Im going to start making regular visits to your blog! I linked from Kmama! Love the snow one! I'm with you on that one!!

HeatherOz said...

Did you get an after shot of the snowball hitting itty bit? Luckily we don't get snow or my kids would be dodging balls lobbed at them by their father!
Thanks for the ballerina reenactment! The visual is VERY helpful!

How are we going to slow Dec. down?

This is just not right...Thank you very much!

semicrunchymama said...

That captcha is just evil!
My son eats apples that way, as well. Drives me bonkers!

Michelle Pixie said...

What is it with kids and apples? I now have an apple slicer (thank you dollar store) and the kids never get a whole apple to themselves. Add a little side of peanut butter and it guaranteed to be eaten!

Tutu funny! I left a loooong comment on your True Story post a day or two ago, but it isn't there..so I guess it didn't "stick". :<( I'd like to say that since school is out for a couple of weeks, I'll be able to get over here more. Reality? I have a list that rivals Santa's of stuff to do during the break so that my head doesn't explode come January. I thought teaching preschool was time-consuming, but I think full-time volunteering takes the cake. *sigh* I miss our banter... hope things are truly less stressful and more fun for you guys..

I have a picture of my first horse almost exactly like that. She looks like a mule instead. too funny.

That is seriously funny! I love the frightened ballerina picture!
