What Do We Do For Fun?

Well, it all started with this little shirt.

While I was getting Curly in her pajamas, Handsome decided to put this shirt of hers on her brother for a little laugh. (I did not buy this shirt. It was part of a box of hand me downs. We liked a lot of the things...but this isn't quite our normal style =D.)

Then Handsome thought he would give it a try. It actually fit. (Well, fit isn't the right word, but he got it to go on his body. And that was surprising.)

And Curly got to go next. There is her special "camera" smile. Can't get good pictures of that girl right now. She always gives me the "camera" smile, or a frown...or some goofy thing that has no name yet.

Lily is up next. Notice that she smiles with the same smile that Curly does? Cute. (note the sarcasm) Thanks for teaching Lily your smile babe.

And finally HIM. He got to try the shirt on too =).

Yes, that's the end. This Mommy has a growing belly that is at the stage where I know it's baby in there, but it looks like flabby gut at this point. I am not going to put an extremely tight shirt on thank you. You're just going to have to deal with it.

And that, my friends, is how our family has fun.

...some of the time.

Just wait a few months and then you can show off this shirt on your cute little belly (after it looks like baby, rather than flabby gut).

We have some similar memories at our house. I tried to get pics ... but my teen boys refused for some reason.

Last spring, I was going through a box of old clothes, some being very old, as in "Why exactly do we have THIS?" My 18 year old son put on ...

... a BRIGHT yellow pair of long johns that were my cousins in the early 1970's, when she was probably about 8 years old. Yuck! (WHY do we have these? How do I even know where they are from? I have NO idea!)

... then, over the BRIGHT yellow long johns, he decided to put on a little (as in VERY little) pair of navy blue shorts ... size 4T. Um ... yea ... NOT a pretty site. He thought he might like to wear this combo for Cross Country.

Yes, we like to have FUN at our house too. Can't wait to show these pics to my kids tomorrow. Oh yea ... I'm sure Jim will look forward to meeting Handsome after seeing this type of fun.

And to think... some families need a television to provide entertainment ;)

I have photos of all the kids and daddy too in a box with clear front that a toy came in. the little ones scrunched up and sat in the boxes and looked like toys for sale. so of course the big kids had to do it. and daddy too. cute pictures you have. I love the dog. makes me miss my golden.

And, what a great family fun post. That shirt looks like a winner for everyone! :)

Ha ha! I love it! And I also want to see pics of your baby belly, but you don't have to wear a tight shirt belonging to your daughter. ;-)

Mom said...
