random-nings...you know, just for funsies

Bristel was perched on the couch...looking out our big window...







and suddenly started yelling...







Mommy...a daddy robber's coming! A daddy robber's coming!







Took a minute to figure out she meant a daddy "robin"! As in the bird. And not the guy trying to steal our Samsung.







**********






Toby's AllStar team were the champions of their first tournament! And word on the street is...it's the first time our town's AllStar team (of any age) has ever won a tourney!








First inning warm ups Captain Slugger took one to the face. Rewarded with a bloody and broken nose to compliment his trophy! Ahhhhhh...the memories of boyhood. We'll laugh about this someday...right?!








****************






Quite possibly the best compliment I've gotten. Ever.







"I have a crapload of respect for you!"






Taken from a recent email...that made me smile.






**********






The Scene: Toby walks into the living room while I'm sweatin' to my morning workout.





Panting Me: Wanna join?






Gawking and Head Shake NO him: Not with those crazy things they make you do!






**********






The Scene: I'd kicked their summer boredom boots outside to play. Toby's whining at the (locked from the inside) screen door. After a few minutes I finally shuffle over to see what was wrong.




Whiney Toby: Mooooooom...Bristel took MY worm!






Victor Bristel: Hahahahahahaha - cackling as she runs around the corner pudgy palm wrapped snugly around Lucky the worm.






Me: turned around and locked the other screen door!


**********







Counting down the days til' Bibi comes to babysit...







I mean visit!







*********







Oh last thought...







I've been thinking about renaming my "random-nings" to "just for funsies". Maybe I'll poll it?

I like the new name.....it's cute.

Bristel sounds like quite a character!! While my older two will look at a worm, neither will touch them. Which surprises me about Haylee since she's our tough-nut.

And.....ouch! Poor Toby! If that was me with a broken nose, my eyes would be crossed in pain!!!
