7 Quick Takes Friday: My Kids Are Blogging and other Scary things

My husband is a weirdo.

No, SERIOUSLY weird.


This was not staged...

Well, maybe that last one.  

But seriously, this is what happens when they're giving free fireworks away at the hardware store.  Consider yourself warned.

Also this week: World's Largest Praying Mantis
(self portrait taken by Lizzy.  The girl has got some skillz.)

Speaking of my girls, they've finally started their blogs!  Woo hoo!  Soon I'll make them by invitation only, but in the beginning, I'd love to have genuinely interested nice folk (that's you if you're reading this!) be able to follow them.  They slay me with their design preferences and unique voice.

So, here is Katie's: Sassafras Sticks
And here's Lizzy's: Lime Lollipops

Okay, peace out y'all.  Got a bit of a baby-covered-in-spaghetti-sauce situation to tend to.  Be sure to read Katie's "About Me" section!

  1. Your daughters' blogs are darling. I love the way cheap fireworks always go just a little wrong. Fireworks have been in very short supply down here this year with the wildfires and drought, it is nice to see someone enjoying some for a change.

  2. Oh my! Katie's About Me is perfect! :) Love it! And Lizzy's design is so bright and fun!!

  3. OMG she is freaking hilarious!!! "And although I am insane, I am not blocked off from society, and am making the most of it." Dweej you taught her well! ;)

  4. Oh, Mama, you don't honestly think Daddy's too weird... but I do! I love him for it. :)

  5. Look at those girls' blogging!

  6. I love that you gave the girls blogs, I gave mine blogs too, but we need to get another laptop so they can post more often. We already know they make great photographers.

  7. SUCH an awesome family you have!! :)

  8. You all never fail to crack me up! I was just at Katie's blog, and got a good laugh too. I'm off to Lizzie's now. So, will it be weird if I follow them?

  9. I love Katie and Lizzy's blogs and their blog names!! Katie's bio is hilarious - I can see she takes after her mother ;)

  10. You guys can totally follow them if you want! Katie will probably post a lot and Lizzy will probably change the colors of her blog a lot ;)

    @Lucy- We are pretty good at making our own fun, that's for sure! Tommy is so ridonckulous. He said "I'm wearing safety gear because we're playing with fire...duh!"

  11. That is so cute that they're blogging too! Let the addiction begin, right? ;)

  12. Oh my gosh I love that first picture of your Hubs and the caption lol! I think our husbands would get along!! :o) I will definitely go follow your daughters - so cute that they're following in Mommy's footsteps! :o)

    For Love of Cupcakes

  13. That praying mantis photo would make a great ad for the waste company.

  14. Can't follow them by clicking on their blog, so I'll subscribe.

  15. I have said it before and I'll say it again, your husband is an a good way! Was he practicing "Safety First" with his fluorescent gear?

  16. Shar: YES! He said "I'm wearing safety gear 'cause we're playing with fire". Ooooooh, of cooooooourse!

  17. Your husband looks FUN!!

    I can't wait until my kids are old enough to blog!

  18. You forgot to mention their love for alliteration as well.

    Amy @ A Little Nosh

  19. LOVE that they have started their own. I know they must already have 'voices' of their own, but this will really help them to define who they are. Plus, great writing exercise!!

  20. From Katie's About Me, I absolutely love "And although I am insane, I am not blocked off from society, and am making the most of it". She is SO your kid!
