The weekend before Thanksgiving- Can you believe it? This year seem to have flown.  I have to say, how excited I am, that so many of you have been joining me. These are by far my favorite posts to read all week and as I am reading them, my husband is laughing at me, because I am laughing at a computer for hours-lol:) You are all so funny though! 


Before I begin my post, I want to announce that the winner of my PlasmaCar giveaway was Dana according to (entry #1199).  Congratulations! Check your email.  Don’t forget I had three other wonderful giveaways going on for the adorable Rowdy Sprouts vintage kids clothes, a Belle Baby Carrier, and a 5 pack of flash drives. Click the side links to enter the giveaways.  I have a huge giveaway with over $400 dollars of prizes (split over 4 winners) going up on Black Friday. You do not want to miss this- I promise!  

I also have to give a shout out to these 4 awesome bloggers who gave me blogging awards this week. You are all fantastic and I appreciate the awards more than you know. They are Tessa from Tales of two girls, Judy from Judy H-J thoughs- A twin less twin, Censie from Building our Story, and Brandi at Life of a New Mommy. A cumulative THANK YOU!

This is a blog hop so please feel free to write your own Saturday top five laugh post or link up any funny post you have written in the past.  The weekends are always a great time to enjoy and what better way than to read funny things that others write. Join the blog hop right after my top five laughs.

Now for my top five laughs:

5. The other day, I was showering and Zane was sleeping. I heard Hayley say, “Mommy, get me out of my crib”. I thought to myself what is she talking about as she was downstairs watching television. Well, apparently, she got her step stool and climbed into her crib. Thankfully, I threatened her with my scary face, never to climb out of the crib. We still have a good thing going even at 3.

4.  Remember how I told you that Hayley always beats me in games. Well, this week, we got her a new fishing game and it is HARD! Hayley had a hard time getting the fish so she reached in and grabbed them all with her hand. When she was done, she says, “I win”. I don’t think so Hayley Bear:)

3. As stated last week, Zane is starting to crawl. He starts out his crawling with raising his bum in the air and swaying from side to side. I think he requires a lot of momentum to get his chubby body moving.

2. Zane is 7 months. He officially outgrew the 12-18 months. We are now in 18-24 months. Enough said!

1. This last one isn’t funny but just too cute so I had to share. This week in her preschool, firefighter Bill came to talk to them. When I put her in for her nap after school, she tell me, word for word, “Mommy, I love you so much and if you/daddy/Zane ever get real sick and need help, I am going to dial 9-1-1″. I am so proud of her!

  1. OverMom says

    So cute! I cannot believe Z is in 18-24 mo clothes!
    Hayley cracks me up…"I win" bwahaha
    I can totally picture Zane shaking his bum bum to get momentum.

  2. Candice says

    wow, Zane is a growing boy ;) And I love how caring Hayley is and wants to call 911 if you're in trouble. You have 2 awesome kiddos, Mel! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Heather James says

    You must take a photo or video of Zane with his bum in the air! I can't believe he is in 18-24 month clothes!! I am glad I'm not the only one who did not allow crib crawling. Claire never crawled out either, but we moved her in September to a big-girl bed. I love that she got in on her own, but not out! My favorite is the winning thing, such a first born competitive one already (I know because I am one and have one of my own). Great laughs, thanks for the link up again!!

  4. Sarah @ It's a Vol says

    They are both so stinkin' cute! Zane and Evie sound like they are in the same size range! Evie is a ginormous baby! I love the little chubby rolls though! I love that Hayley knows about 911!

  5. Maria says

    My baby who is now 17 months can wear the same size as his nearly 4 year old brother! I have to roll up the pant legs but shirts fit fine! Chubby babies rock! :)

  6. Mommyblogger says

    Ha Ha- Sounds like you got a chunker!!! My boy is 15 months & is just now in 18-24 months. I thought he was a big boy!

    Your kids are so cute! :)

    Have a great weekend! I probably won't link up this weekend…I kinda forgot about it. Maybe next week I can write things down throughout the week so I can participate.

  9. Jamie says

    Hahahahahaha "I win". I used to be a teacher (prek and then k) and I know about this mindset very well lol!

    Hayley says the cutest things! Cupcakes does a similar thing with her butt in the air. :o)

  10. Candice says

    I really look forward to this post! 18-24 months clothing! Oh-Em-Gee! Thanks again and have a great weekend.

  11. Kass says

    LOL the fishing game!! We just got Aiden one that is a Cars one so you go fishing for the tires and he does the same thing!!

  12. Sara says

    Ethan does the same thing. He usually wins too, but if he can't he will somehow find a way. He loves playing Sorry!

  13. Lisa @ Two Bears Farm says

    Always good for them to know how to dial 911 – although you shudder to teach them!

    My oldest never used to cheat at games, but last night he played Candyland and was totally trying to cheat!

  14. CacheyMama says

    Hello, thanks for the comment about my award. Was planning to do top laugh saturday, but not sure if I will get to it in time now. We'll see :) OMG about Zane! I though my son was big, but he is almost a year and just starting to outgrow some of his 12m clothes…

  15. Mom of 12 says

    I linked up the post about my son. Sorry it took me a while to get to it today. My life is not my own…
    Thanks for the suggestion!

  16. Sandy -- As Told By Mommy says

    Soooo cute! Our son used to get on his hands and knees and sway back and forth to get started! Isn't it cute how they do thinks like that? Love it!

    This week was hard…I am still trying to think of 5 funny things lol
