"it's like camping!"

Posted by Tim 23 March 2007

so we were cooking a carrot cake while my mom was here... and yes... it was delicious... because all of her carrot cakes are amazing!

we put it in the oven and in order to get the temperature right, we had to prop a chair up against the oven door. this has to be done because the oven isn't exactly what we would call, "new" and the door tends to hang up just a little and let the hot air out. when my mom saw me push the chair up against the door, i explained it to her to which she exclaimed, "wow! this is fun... it's like camping!"

i jokingly thanked her for mocking our life. :)

henna tattoo for mama...

Posted by Tim 19 March 2007 0 comments

my mom surprised us one day while we were out when she decided she wanted to get a henna tattoo. here is the lady designin' her up.

"I'm thumpin! That's why they call me Thumper!"

thump thump thump... wack chop chop boil chew chew yum yum.

so we went to a friend's house a while back for dinner and she cooked up 2 rabbits. i had told her that i hadn't ever eaten rabbit so she said that i must. When i saw the meat in the pot the two little rabbit heads were chillin' inside with the rest of the meat. check it out in this pic...

so then my friend suggested that we crack those little heads on open and we eat the brains. i told her that was straight up gross and then agreed to join her. haha! i 'bout tossed my cookies... seriously... here's a pic right before eatin' the brains.

We're watching LeeAnna today while her parents are packing up their place to go to a new flat.
I thought it was high time for a ticklefest.

Hey you Texas Folk are way generous.

We recently hads some friends visit us from Texas and they brought the mother load!

Velveeta, bacon bits, muffin mixes, craisins... and other contraban/difficult to find items.

One of those hard to find items is good clothes. Landon got some serious clothing for his 4T/5T years. Which might be when he is 3... he is 2.5 years old and he is filling out his 3T just fine!

We wanted to put this picture up here to show our thankfulness and to show the plethora of goodies our good buddies sent us.
