Sometimes you just need some encouragement. From time to time you just need to know someone cares. And every once in a while you just need someone to say they care about what you have to say when no one else does -which is a little more often for some of us.

Which is why I keep this card from Chick-fil-A on my desk where I can always see it:

“Your Opinion Matters!” 

I could have cashed it in for a chicken sandwich long ago but would I have felt my opinion mattered every week after staff meeting when it might have seemed it didn’t? Nope. And I wouldn’t trade that thing for 10 sandwiches now because every time I feel like my opinion doesn’t matter I can look at that card and know that it does matter to someone. Thanks Chick-fil-A!

My phone was acting weird tonight. It was 15 minutes behind the clock on the computer and tv. And the clock in real life, I guess I could have just said it was behind the clock in real life, but the clocks on the tv and the computer is what I looked at. Then I asked Ashley what her phone said because we both have at&t. Her phone said the same time as the tv and the computer.

I asked her to text me to see what would happen. I thought maybe it would reset my clock. She sent a text that said “Hi”.

Click to Enlarge

It didn’t reset it.

But we had fun with it. I said, “Who is this?”

And Ashley quickly texted back, “The future.”

One of my favorite things about my wife is how funny she is. In the past. The present. And in the future.

Today was Kit’s first day of the Bumbo and he loved it. And so did I. It was a whole new adventure for us.

Click to Enlarge

As soon as I saw him sitting in this, I knew he wasn’t just sitting in a “Bumbo,” I knew he was sitting in a machine. Some kind of vehicle. Some kind of space flying machine vehicle. I knew that because of the sounds he was making. He was making space flying machine vehicle sounds.

So we started playing imaginary space flying machine vehicle games. It was awesome! The Bumbo had an imaginary steering wheel that Kit could hold onto and steer out of the way of the oncoming space traffic.

Which is good because there were rockets flying at us from all directions we had to dodge!

Click to Enlarge

And not just from the side they were flying right at us too!!!

 

Click to Enlarge

It was crazy!

And then Ashley walked in from the living room and I thought our imaginary space flying machine vehicle game time was over. But all she said was, “If you are going to play dangerous imaginary games with my baby, at least imagine that he is wearing a helmet.

“”Done,” I said.

Today I was layed up with a bad headache all day. Ashley took great care of me. She gave me my medicines and made sure the lights and noises didn’t bother me. She is the greatest whenever these days come along. I have been suffering from chronic headaches for years and sometimes, like today, they completely shut me down. I go back to the nuerologist next week and hopefully I’ll get some other meds that work better, but until then, I have the best wife in the world to help me out.

Kit, on the other hand, wasn’t as appreciative of Ashley today. He was fussy and didn’t necessarily want to be put down for his nap. When he finally fell asleep he managed to slip one finger out of his closed-sleeved shirt. I’ll let you guess which one…

Yup… that’s the one we guessed, too.

When I go to the doctor, I just pick up whatever magazine is sitting on the table next to the chair and read whatever page I come to. That’s how I met Emily.

Click to Enlarge

I don’t know who she is, or what Ulcerative Colitis is, but she seems really happy with it, so I think I am going to ask my doctor how I can get it.

I just love how the pharmaceutical companies make their tv ads and print ads make the diseases seem so much fun that you almost want the disease just so you can get their medicines to treat it. My favorite was always the herpes virus commercial on tv. They were better than the Match.com commercials. People would say, “I’m tired of being single, I’m going to join Match.com.” and I would think, If you are really tired of being single and want to meet that special someone you can go kayaking with and ride a double-seated bicycle into the sunset with, I don’t think you should join Match.com, I think you should get herpes.

But I have always been one who is easily swayed by the media. I do own The Clapper, The Ove Glove, and every NOW That’s What I Call Music! cd. Speaking of..

Seriously, stop what you are doing and go now. Really, go. If you are at work get one for your boss and you will be forgiven. If this doesn’t work then have your boss call Julie at (423) 591-3737.

My mom’s birthday is Wednesday so I have been on the lookout for the perfect gift. I’ve noticed they don’t make a lot of perfect gifts, but they do make a lot of not-so-perfect gifts. Like this one:

Yikes.

That is a not-so-perfect gift. Although it does come in a “Limited Edition Gift Box!”

Today for lunch I ate a Totinos Pizza. It was a “Triple Meat Pizza”. While I was waiting for the oven to heat up I was reading the front of the box, which they have newly redesigned. It is nice and makes for an interesting read. For example, do you know what the three meats in the “Triple Meat Pizza” are?

I thought I did too buuuuttt, I didn’t. So we are going to turn this into a game for you. It’s called:

Meat Loaf’s Can You Guess That Meat???

The game show where we give you two of the meats, and you have to guess the third. I know what you are thinking… two out of three ain’t bad… well, so are we, so let’s play!

Here’s a picture of the box with the third meat blurred out, see if you can guess what it is:

Click to Enlarge

Okay, let’s make this multiple choice. Is the third meat in the Triple Meat Pizza…

A. Hamburger

B. Goose

C. Rabbit

D. Elephant

E. Duckbilled Platypus

I know what you are thinking, Those are some ridiculous choices. Well, I promise you that the answer is ridiculous. If you can guess which meat is the third meat in the Triple Meat Pizza I will personally give you Meatloaf. Not the Meat Loaf, just a Meat Loaf.

Go ahead and guess. I’ll give you some time to think about it and when you are ready to see what the answer is, just scroll on down.

Click to Enlarge

The good news is that I don’t have to give you a meat loaf because you weren’t right with your answer. The bad news is that none of those answers are right because all of those answers are meat. Yup, did you see what the third meat is… 

“Pizza Topping with Pepperoni Flavor”

What???? That’s not even sort of a meat! I feel like I have been jipped all these years I have been getting the “Triple Meat Pizza”! It’s not called the “Triple Meat Flavor Pizza”, it’s called “Triple MEAT Pizza”! Come on, Totinos! Oh well, it is still delicious so I guess I shouldn’t complain. And at least Ashley’s Triple Cheese Pizza is made with three cheeses, right!

Wait, what?

People keep wanting to see pictures of Kit and I can understand because he is the cutest baby in the history of the world. He is smart and funny and he has all of his hair. If you came here today hoping to see a picture of him, you’re in luck!

Enjoy!

To help Kit relax after a long gassy afternoon, Ashley gave him a bath and then she gave him a back rub with Johnson and Johnson lavendar lotion.

During which he calmly read “Horton Hears a Who” on his Nook.

Seeeee! Cutest. Baby. Ever.

Pictures of babies are awesome and Liz Power Photography is awesome so it only makes sense that baby pictures taken by Liz Power Photography would we really awesome.

Ashley and I took Kit to get his pictures taken a few weeks ago and it was, as advertised, awesome. (Just wait till you get your Christmas cards!) If you want to get your baby’s picture taken or your child’s or your grandma’s call Liz Power. They also do weddings and engagements and family pictures and old timey gatlinburg pictures. Okay, I made that last one up, but they do the rest, check ‘em out at LizPowerPhotography.com.

If I Were A Scarecrow…

My favorite class at Ridgedale’s CDC (Childcare Development Center) is The Lions. They are the 4 year old class down by the gym. They are  so funny. Last night was the CDC’s Fall Program where all the classes sing a few songs and dance around and have a good time and show off for their parents. I usually go to all their programs but last night I had class and wasn’t going to be able to go sooo…

They were nice enough to do their whole program for me while they were standing in line to go out and play.

It started with us just talking about it and then they started singing their first song, which led to them singing their second song, which led to them singing their third song. It was awesome! They were doing all their motions and singing super loud.

They are the funniest, which is why they are my favorite. Today I want to share with you some of their funniest in my latest segment called:

-

If Lions Were…

-

They were each asked to complete the sentence: “If I Were a Scarecrow…” which of course led to…

-

If Lions Were… Scarecrows

-

Before we get started I need to say that the kids in The Lions are just 4 years old and I didn’t get them to sign a release to be on here so instead of showing their faces, I have “expertly” photoshopped the faces of the Duggar kids over their faces.

Which Duggars? Well, that will be a bonus part of the fun. If you want to play “Name That Duggar” click on the picture below. The KevinTheCoolGuy.com record is held by The Reynolds Family with 1800 points.

(Of course them living 17 minutes from the Duggars probably helps.)

See if you can beat their record!

-

name that duggar

All right, let’s do this…

If Lions Were… Scarecrows

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Sarah says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-3-

“I would marry somebody.”

Well, of course you would!

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Tristan says:

-

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-4

-

“I would drive a motorcycle.”

In his free time, I’m assuming.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Meagan  says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-5

-

“I would sit down in a chair.”

I’ll do it, but I’m not gonna stand up all day!

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Ms Loretta says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-6

-

“I would go over and hug Willie’s neck and sit next to him.”

I’m not sure who “Willie” is but he has a hug coming his way!

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Keaton says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-7

-

“I would scare away the crows if they eat the corn.”

If they eat the corn. If not, they can stay.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Kyle says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-8

-

“I would eat the corn.”

I appreciate your honesty Kyle but I think we will pass on you at this time.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Chasity says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-9

-

“I would scare everybody.”

EVERYBODY.

Nice hair, by the way.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Benjamin says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-10

-

“I would go to bed.”

In his defense at his house “being a scarecrow” is slang for sleepy.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Madelyne says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-11

-

“I would take some corn to my Granddaddy.”

Earlier in the year when asked to complete the sentence “If I were a Secretary…” she said, “I would take some paperclips to my Granddaddy.”

I’m starting to see a pattern here Madelyne…

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Madeline says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-12

-

“I would fly.”

I like it Madeline. If the crows don’t come to you, you will come to them. Nice.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Savannah says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-13

-

“I would scare away the horses and the birds away.”

The birds AND the horses. Above and beyond, Savannah, above and beyond.

-

Okay, so far so good, now let’s take a look at the minister’s kids. Hannah is John’s (Rec Minister) daughter and Tripp is Brother Bill’s (Senior Pastor) grandson, I’m sure they will say something really good and probably spiritual.

Let’s see!

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Hannah says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-Hannah

-

“I would scare crows.”

Hmm, alright. I mean she is a scarecrow so technically she is doing her job.

“If I were a scarecrow I would do my job.”

Commendable Hannah.

Now let’s see about Tripp.

-

If I were a Scarecrow…

Tripp says:

10nov2009- If I Were A Scarecrow-Tripp

-

“I am not a scarecrow. I am not going to be a scarecrow.”

When asked the follow up question: Yeah, but what if you were

Tripp said, “I am not, I will not be, I am not a scarecrow, I am a boy, not a scarecrow, I am not going to be a scarecrow at all. Never.”
