Would you judge me

if I didn't take a shower today?

(and everyone who's been around me today, besides shuddering, is going "oh well that explains the smell.")


How about if I spent my afternoon working on a new picture cutout thingy just for my son's kindergarten Halloween party?


Okay. How 'bout when I got my daughter's Halloween costume in the mail today--

see, my sis had the awesome idea of making her the Little Orphan Annie--

I mean, if I could get that hair to curl. . . perfect, right?

Anywho, I pulled this costume out, said "dang it! It's waaay too big." And to prove it,

I made John try it on.

And he loved it.

How 'bout then?

Haaaaaaaaaa, but he looks so CUTE! That stinks that it doesn't fit. Are you just gonna save it? Too bad you can't make him wear it and dress her as Sandy the Dog.

Shhhhh... I skip showers all the time.

OMG! That is the best laugh I've had allllll day! Too, too cute! He's going to so hurt you one day. :)

Poor little orphan Annie! Tomorrow, tomorrow you will get yours.

LOL! Sorry Johnny! Don't be mad at your mom....I'm the one who put the thought in her mind that it might fit you. I'm still your favorite aunt though.

The dress is SO cute. Even on a boy. Dang I want to see Kenna in it!

Mandi, I just read the comments on the side of your blog from the boys. Each one got more funny, but the last one with Jace thinking someone brought mashed potatoes to church was priceless! Thank-You Tremayne family for great stories and lots of laughs!!!! We miss you guys!

This is too funny! He is just a boy in a dress...Can you get the dress replaced in time for Halloween? Little girl would be darling in it! FYI...my little girl (now 21) let me curl her hair in ringlets for little miss muffet..sort of, I curled it while she was napping!

Glad I stopped by, you always put a smile on my face.

Blah ha ha ha! That is priceless! I love it! Sometimes when I get carried away in a project I don't shower either. It's like it will mess up my creative juices or something.

Emily said...

I would absolutely not judge you! That is just too funny.

Spencer & Lorilyn Crum said...

Yes! That dress is amazing. You can just save it and use it when she gets bigger and then maybe you can get the hair to curl as well.

On a sidenote, I am hosting an Under the Sea homecoming dance (dead serious) at my house in October and would love a cut out of Ariel and Eric :)

lol, I don't blame you, sometimes the day can get away from you :)
I LOVE that costume, so cute! It should be his costume, he just needs a wig

I spent two weeks trying to convince my son to let me die his hair green.

There will be NO judging from THIS side of the country.

You smell good from here, lady! :)

Oh honey, sometimes I even offend myself! Sometimes taking a shower just takes too long, lol!
I have tears down my leg that you actually had him try the costume on! That picture will be perfect for his first date or graduation! Can't you do any nipping and tucking for your sweet red head? You are really amazing with the Halloween art, can't wait to see it all finished!

Really is a shower THAT important?
