:: Crafty and Crazy ::

Okay, prepare yourself...this post is jam-packed with fun stuff (possibly my longest post EVER, and all of this was TODAY!). The crafty part, because Grandma is here and we like to get crafty. The crazy part, because that is Trey these days! :) I am so glad I have witnesses to prove it after this weekend! Uncle Cody, Grandma, and Grandpa now understand what Mommy and Daddy have been saying. They have also learned how hard it is not to laugh right in his face when he smarts back, because let's face it...Trey is a 5 year old trapped in a 2 year old's body! More on that later...time for some pics. I'm going to divide these up to make it easier on ya.

First...the craft section. I have wanted to get Emery a tutu since the girl came out of my belly! However, Joe would have grounded me to the guest room if I would have come home with a $30 tutu. Hmm, what's a girl to do? Wait for Grandma to come and have her help me make one! :) I think it turned out awesome for the first try! Mom's put in your orders!


Since Em was in bed when we finished,
Trey thought he'd put the tutu to good use.

Second, the Crazy. You see, my son knows ALL of our rules. He is a little mistaken when he thinks those rules apply to everyone else...including all adults. Some of his favorite quotes are "Don't EVER, EVER do that again!" (with his finger pointed at you), "Don't spank somebody!", "Don't talk to me like that", and the all time favorite, "Have you lost your mind?" Here are the photos to prove his sassy-ness.


This is the face right before you get,
"Don't EVER do that" OR "I don't want to!"

This is the face after you tell him, "NO!"
Which may be followed with, "But, I need to!"

This is what you get when he starts counting at you!
This picture explains it ALL. Yes, the lighting is AWFUL at best,
but that's what you get with a finger in your face.

Tonight we just hung out at the casa and I snapped a few...

Trey, helping clean up Cody's beer. Such a helper!
Sidenote: Trey jumped on Cody's back unannounced...
Outcome? Beer on the floor, duh.

Papa and Trey


I didn't leave Grandma out of the pictures, I do have one, however, I am honoring her request! Neither of us found it necessary to put on make up today...that's why I like to remain behind the camera!

Last, but certainly not least. I think I blogged earlier about Elf on the Shelf. I LOVE the concept, because Trey 'gets' the whole 'Santa's Watchin' You!' thing. However, someone is makin' a killin' on those! (they are packaged with the book that tells a story) I had made a mental note to look for an Elf-look-a-like, but hadn't gotten around to it. I mean I make enough trips to the mall to walk that Trey will have plenty of chances to see Santa. Well, fast forward to today and Grandma and my adventure to Hobby Lobby for the tutu-makin extravaganza. We combed the shelves for an elf. Nada. After dinner, Grandma and I had to run into Wally World for some dog food and milk (you know, essentials), and we looked again for another elf. Okay, has the Elf on the Shelf totally taken over so that we can't copy-cat? It's a conspiracy. Plan B you ask? Rudolph! Hello! Rudolph has to tell Santa how to get here, right? Works for me! Plus, $3 is MUCH better than $30! Go ahead, steal my idea...your husbands will thank me. Here's Rudolph's debut, and let me tell you...it's workin'!

There he is! The only bad thing?
I can't tell Trey he has a sad face, b/c he's smilin!
Trey and Rudolph before
Rudolph had to get to work!

In action...He's watchin' you!
Okay, so now that this has become the World's LONGEST post...I leave you with this picture. Joe's new hair cut after he returned from the kids' pre-game meeting tonight. Don't laugh too hard...I kinda like it.
