Top Five Saturday Laughs :: 11.24.12

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!  I absolutely love this holiday!! Nothing is better than spending quality time with our loved ones.  We are blessed to live close to all of our family so we don't need to travel.  This also means that we have multiple celebrations throughout the weekend!  I will surely need to wear the fat pants after all these meals.

I must admit that all five of these laughs didn't happen this past week.  A few of them are from the unused list of weeks past.  I didn't do a good job writing down our funny laughs through the week, so I am bummed that my memory stinks!

5.  My girls love to play kitchen.  We actually have their play kitchen set up in the kitchen so we can cook side by side.  I was cooking dinner one night and Claire was cooking the dessert to go with our meal.  She popped the cupcakes in the oven and told me, "they will be ready shortly mom, in about 16 hours."  I must have looked at her a little sideways since she followed up with, "Is that a long time?"

4.  Natalie has figured out a new way to entertain herself while wearing footie jammies.  She takes objects (favorite is play phones) and hides them by dropping them down through the neck until they reach her feet.  She then puts her hands out like, "where did it go?"  She giggles like crazy while we unzip to retrieve the object.

3.  Claire was picking her nose and I asked her if she needed a tissue.  She said, "I already got it mom."  I then brought her a tissue for the said "it" when she told me that she already wiped it on her pants.  She then went on to tell me, "When I'm at daycare, I turn my back so my friends don't know I am picking my nose.  Then I wipe it on my pants."  We then had to have a conversation about the need to use tisses.

2.  We got our Elf on the Shelf, Ernie, out this week.  Natalie gets so excited when she realizes Ernie's new hiding spot.  She then babbles on pointing to the last spot he was at and the newest spot.  I imagine she is trying to tell us, "He was over there and now he's up here!"

1.  Claire was pretending to be me when she took her purse, waved to me (I was Claire) and said, "Bye honey, I have to go to work, be a good girl."  I asked her what she did at work and she told me, "At work, I have to do all the boring things in the world.  If you and Natalie came with me to work all you'd do is sit there because my work is SO BORING."  Apparently, Claire thinks selling brick & stone is a boring job.  Trust me it sounds much more boring than it really is!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  If you are looking for some more laughs, be sure to check out Melissa and the other great blogs that have linked up!

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
