Good Ol' Gramps

Man, I love my Grandpa!

He's awesome, and I know I've extolled his virtues before (I think?)...but, did I ever tell you how stinkin' funny he is?

Dry, grumpy old sense of humor...we love it!

We recently had dinner at my grandparents home. My mom and dad, my aunt, my cousin, my bro, my kids...it was a grand, yummy old time!

Football was on TV (don't ask me who, 'cuz I couldn't tell ya if you held a gun to my head...football's not my thing)...and anywho, there was an argument brewing,

Gramps, "Oh, he fumbled!"

Dad, "I don't think he had control!"

Gramp, "Heck, yeah...that was a fumble!"

Dad, "No, I really don't think he had the ball!"

Gramps, "That was a fumble!!!"

Dad, "I don't think so!"

(Insert instant slow-mo replay here...)

Dad, "Uh...see, see?!! Look, ball's not in his hands, oh...touching his chest, bobbling (my dad likes to talk along with the replay), juggling, no control...I don't think he had the ball!"

Announcer, "Incomplete pass!"

Then my mom, the moderating peace maker (love ya mom!! She recently "discovered" my blog--had to give her a shout out!)...so the peace maker she is, she pipes in, "Okay, dad...what do you say to your son-in-law now?"

Gramps declares, "Jack a**!!"

Bwahahahahahahahaha!!! The room erupted! Belly laughs, snorts, chuckles, giggles...and maybe a couple of piddled in panties. (So much for that "You were right" that my mom was hoping for!!)

Dang hilarious, if you ask me!

Oh, and yes...if you are wondering...it is the same Gramp from this story!

  8. too funny!! sounds like my grandpa...

    my grandparents would babysit us while my mom went to the grocery store when we were little. my younger brother was potty training, and he would yell for someone to come help him wipe.

    my grandpa's response: "wipe your own d*mn a**"

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
