Party Games

DEF: Party games are games that some people play as forms of entertainment at social gatherings.

I absolutely love going to baby showers and bridal showers. But I always get nervous if there are going to be games. I usually like the games and especially the prizes, but I still get nervous.

Will I have to put on a bib and drink out of a baby bottle? (True story)

Will I have to eat cake in the shape of a you know what and pretend like I think it is funny? (True story)

Will I have to eat melted candy bars out of a diaper? (True story)

I have been to many showers with very fun games and awesome prizes (like when my mom and I won a pound of See's chocolate and when I won an adorable makeup bag) and some mortifying showers where I faked an prior engagement and left before it started.

Maybe it's my personality. Maybe I am the only one on the entire earth that dislikes mortifying party games. I don't know.

What's the worst party game you've ever been subjected to?

We loved dinner at the Eidsons.

Tim was our BBQer
Jon and I smiled for the pic, meanwhile my daddy had a different idea.

My mommy was the dog whisperer.

Mac and Jon did their normal nonsense.
Don't ask, I have no idea what they are doing.

And Leena Lou and Puff played some fiesty ping-pong.

I love this picture.

Puff, Austin and Mac.

Puff went snorkeling in the sink.

Yes, it was just like it sounds.
He filled up the sink with rocks and water and blue food coloring.
And bushes and a BYU cookie cutter.
And a stature of a man on a horse.
Then he got his snorkeling equipment,
put it on,
and dove in.
He was wearing his bathing suit also.
He says he's practicing for Hawaii.
The better part was that he thought his hair was turning blue from the food coloring.
He had to fish all the rocks out of the garbage disposal after my dad turned it on.

You may remember my daddy's obsession with Thrifty ice cream.

Well, one hot day he decided that we would all take a mandatory work break and go to Thriftys to get ice cream. Leena Lou is taking the picture, so we honorarily put her ice cream in the pic instead of her.
Now see my daddy's? Please notice that he has a huge one.
Well the only reason he goes to Thriftys is to get black cherry. And they were out of black cherry in scoops. So he selected that one from the freezer and then just ate out of that.
We take our ice cream pretty seriously apparently.

P.S. I love the look on my Grandpa's face.
P.P.S. I am not that short, I was ducking because I was on the front row.

This is what I'm going to be for Halloween.

Leena Lou is going to be Tiger Lily.
We're desperately trying to convince Puff to be Peter Pan.
AND my mommy to be Wendy and my daddy to be Hook.
We'll see how that goes.

I was in the fabric store buying some sparkley green tulle to make my costume. And then when I was checking out the lady asked me what I was making. I told her a Tinkerbell costume. She looked at me over her glasses and said "It's September."
I said "I know but I am going to be gone on vacation until a few days before Halloween and I want to get a heard start."
Then she said "Oh I suppose your daughter has a party to go to or something."
I should have kept my mouth shut because she was obviously was not someone that appreciated Halloween.
I said "Oh it's not for my daughter, it's for me!"
Then she looked at me like I was from the moon and told me that I was way too old to dress up but "whatever."
Apparently she has never been to Waikiki on Halloween or she would know that there are PLENTY of adults who dress up.
And I am one of them.
And my Tinkerbell costume will be adorable!

Leena Lou and I went to TB.

We each ordered a "5 Buck Box"
The total was $7.98
I thought for sure the guy taking our order would catch the mistake.
He didn't.
He happily took my 8 dollars. So basically I swindled TB out of 2 bucks.
I don't really feel bad though because I can't count the times when we have driven away from the drive thru and opened the bag only to find we are missing things from our order. So maybe we're even.
And that is what they get for hiring employees that don't know that 5+5=10.

Which reminds me of a story.
My friend Tam Tam went for an interview at the Hometown Buffet. Classy right? Haha. She was being interviewed by the owner, who was an indian man.
He asked her a few questions and then he said:
"ok what is 9+7?"
Tam Tam said "16" without hesitation. Because she is smart.
Then the indian man threw his hands up in the air and started shouting in his accent "CASH REGISTER! CASH REGISTER!"
Needless to say, she got the job...

Flashback Friday

Here I am with my grammy at the Great Wall of China.
I was eating watermelon today from our garden.
And it reminded me of my favorite sign in China.
If you have ever been to Asia, you'll know the way they word things on signs is hilarious. See here.
#4 says "please don't bring football, pets and watermelon in the park"
What the junk?

If you have never met my Grandpa, this won't be funny.

He was making his bed on our couch.
He loves to sleep on our family room couch.
He started to spread out the sheet, which was lime green with white daisies (used to belong to me or Leena Lou a long time ago)
and said really loud "this is one sexy sheet!"

Advice from a Princess.

I need to say it.

If someone ever comes to you and asks you if you think they should audition for American Idol and you think they SHOULD NOT, please tell them not to!

I feel so embarassed for all those people on there who are terrible and they say "but my friends told me I'm good!"

What kind of friends are those? Don't be that kind of friend.

Watch this and this and this.

I'm a terrible sister because

when Leena Lou got pooped on by a bird in AG Village, I laughed hysterically.
It landed on her lip.
Then I got out my cell phone to take pictures.
Then I laughed some more while she rubbed tangerine smelling hand sanitizer all over her lips and hands.

Puff really doesn't like Sunday afternoons,

because we all nap and he is totally bored.
He says napping is a waste of time.
So I decided to go outside with him instead of napping.
And he did random things in the yard like cut tape with a razor knife,
peer through the bushes and
swing on the zipline.
Then he tried to convince me that it was more fun than napping.
I can't say I agree yet.

Some people just can't resist

dressing up for parties where you aren't supposed to dress up.
For our ward Barn BBQ, Leena Lou and I wore our cowboy boots with normal clothes.
But there was a woman dressed as Indiana Jones.
Yes, of course I have spy pictures.
I feel bad posting them.
You'll have to use your imagination.

This conversation definately happened at my house.

Puff: Well, just still waiting for my acceptance letter.

Mac: Uhhh what are you talking about?

Puff: Uh just my acceptance letter that says you've been accepted to the Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Mac: Those come when you're 11. You're 13.

Puff: Mac you know those kinds of things get lost in the owl post all the time!


Mac: Ok Miks lets both sweep the porch, so we can be done faster.

Puff: Can't.

Mac: Why?

Puff: Uhh we only have one sweep.

Mac: Huh?

Puff: You know. A sweep. Like the thing you sweep with.

Mac: You mean a broom?

Puff: (Dead silence and eye rolling.)

Meet my blankies.

I'm not ashamed that I've graduated from college and I still have a blankie.
Actually, 5 of them.
Flower, Lambie, Stripey, Greenie and Pinkie.
My grammy says that she will make them into my wedding veil.
I'm ok with that!

Don't worry. I am the best bargain shopper ever!

I got this adorable skirt for my mommy.

I found myself in Vogue

I'm the one in the middle.

I feel very uncomfortable at church sometimes.

To be more specific, I feel very uncomfortable after they bless a baby in church.
Don't get offended.
Every dad since the beginning of time has done this.
I feel like at any moment giraffes and birds and antelope will burst thorugh the doors and the "Circle of Life" will begin to play as they march down the aisles.
Leena Lou sqeezed my arm so hard today that is is bruised now.
I've decided to name this Mormon phenomenon "Pride Rock Syndrome"
Because I seriously feel like I am attending church on the African savanna with Rafiki and Mufasa.

Tennis with AMM

This is AMM, she's our friend. She's on the tennis team.
We were playing/ helping her practice.
But the dumb lights wouldn't go on
so right before the championship match between AMM and yours truly, we had to quit.
Sorry. The suspense of the winner will have to kill you for a while longer.
