True Redneck Tank Top!! This was taken in front of the Gardendale, Alabama Wal-Mart while she was going to the flea market. This is hysterical! Look at it closely.
Now I ask you...Who sits and looks at a pair of men's briefs and says hmm...I can make a nice summer top from these? On the other hand...$6 for a three pack is a good price!!
I guess boxers would be a short sleeve summer top.
I told Alan that I really hope they were new, and her husband hadn't already worn them. Ewww!
What do you think, gals? Anybody want to make one of these cute summer tops?

Milking Pretend Cow.
Playing in the dried corn.
Gluing spots on a cow.
Funny things Jadyn said this week --
"Mom, after our oak tree grows up and gets bigger, can we pick the oaks?" I told her it would probably have acorns. :)
Monday was Alan's brother's birthday. After dinner, he said he wanted to call him. He told Jadyn he was going to call Uncle Vince. Jadyn asked, "Is he a boy, or a girl?"
Ha ha. Just when you think they are figuring a few things out.
Fortunately, she's ours!
Photo from a recent dinner out. Jadyn's fortune said, "Sing and rejoice, fortune is smiling on you."

Yesterday morning, Jadyn was sitting beside me when I was having coffee. I was flipping throught the channels and stopped briefly on TLC. A commercial came on for a cupcake maker for little girls. Maybe you've seen it before. Jadyn immediately said, "And it's all yours!" No, my girl hasn't been watching too much TV or anything.

Here we are, about 2 years later.
This week's FFFF is Elementary Age photos.
That's me, in the middle. This is probably about 2nd grade.
This was when I was in 3rd grade. Do you love these dresses? I bet they were stylish back in the day. Looking at them now, I have to wonder how that was possible. :) My mom made them, and these were made at Christmas time. My mom made so much of our clothing. A serious amount! Knowing what that took, and how many years she did that is impressive to me.
If you'd like to join in the fun and post some of your classic photos, head on over to Diana's blog and find out how.
Have a great weekend!

If a snowman sees his shadow, does it mean more OR less weeks of winter?
Hibernating on the deck.
Okay, so maybe I can do my part by moving out the snowmen. Some warmer, sunny days will have to do the rest for us.
On a brighter note, our kids are feeling better! Bryan has not been to school all week, but I have hope that he will be able to go tomorrow.
Jadyn was able to go to preschool today. It was NICE to get out and about, even if we did almost fall down a few times on the icy parking lots.
Guess who enjoyed a cherry Icee from Target? That's probably more than you wanted to see isn't it? She did ask if her tongue would stay red forever. :)

Yes, there really is a 16 year old boy under those pillows. Personally, when I'm sick, I want my bed! He's really not into napping in his bed. He'd rather be on the couch.
Bryan's been pretty sick with fever. Poor guy, he's never this sick and hates to miss school.
Jadyn is sick right now too. She's caught another cold, just on the heels of her previous one. So we have 2 sick kids in the house at the moment. Keep your fingers crossed that Mom and Dad don't catch this stuff.
A Jadyn Funny - Today she said, "Mom, when you grow up, why are you going to be a grandma?"
I've tried to explain to her that in a few years, if one of her siblings becomes a parent, I'll be a grandma. I guess she doesn't quite get it yet, or maybe she just wasn't quite sure how to ask about it. :) I love it that she doesn't think I'm grown up yet.

I wonder if she'll always think he is this much fun in the morning at breakfast time.
Sillyness in the Saturday bath. A new do!
A perk of having a sister home from college.....a pretty manicure!
Necessary items for your pocket, when you are 4. You never know when you might need shoes or a tiara. I found these in her pocket when I was doing the laundry.
Yay! I'm excited that my Christmas Cactus is blooming. Why it's blooming in March and it's a Christmas Cactus and all, I'm not sure. I definitely won't complain.
I adopted this plant from my mom about 15 months ago. It's grown a lot. She was amazed when she came for a visit. Must be that good Minnesota sun coming through my window.
I'm excited that it's blooming. It's bloomed a couple of times before, but this is the first time the blooms weren't pulled off the plant by a 2 year old or a cat. :)
In the past, the blooms would mysteriously disappear before they were even open. Jadyn had no idea where they could have gone. LOL!

Tonight, Jadyn made up a joke and told it to Alan. He then had her tell it to me. We really laughed. Here it is: Knock, knock. Who's there? Horse. Horse who? Then she says in a sing-song voice: Horse with 3 legs, can't run, has to grow another one!
Not too bad for a four year old.

We had a really nice weekend. It was slightly busy, but in a good way.
Friday- Yay! We usually eat out on Friday nights.
Seriously, I do like to cook. I'm just not a huge planner. One time I was at a friend's house helping her with some things around the house. Several of us were over because their family had been through a very rough time. She sat with another friend at the table, planning out a menu and making a grocery list. When they heard that I don't actually plan a weekly menu at my house, they were shocked.
