Saturday’s Top Five Laughs- Come join our blog hop

* Hi everyone. I am away on vacation till Sunday night with limited access to Internet. Unfortunately, I can’t get the link up to work this week from where I am. Please check out my wonderful friend Heather laughs and I will be back next week with the link up. Sorry about that!

Hi all!  I am beyond honored that Melissa asked me to do a guest post on her blog while she is away! (Thanks again Melissa!!) I am Heather and our little place on the web is Our Girls Keep Us Moving.  My husband and I are High School sweethearts who have been married for seven years.  We have two girls, Claire, who will be three in March and Natalie, who will be one in April.  I also work full time as a sales rep.  We have fun and stay plenty busy!   This is my first guest post as I just started blogging 5 months ago.   I have absolutely loved writing these Saturday Laughs every week.  In addition, I really enjoy reading everyone else’s laughs from the hop, so make sure you link up directly underneath my laughs!

We had lots of choices for our laughs this week, but here are our top five:

5.  For Christmas, Claire received the Little People nativity scene.  She has been obsessed with nativity scenes since last Christmas, particularly Baby Jesus. So this was a perfect gift for her – one she can’t break!  All week it has been a requirement that she sleeps with Baby Jesus.  On Tuesday, she went to bed without him.  Of course, this didn’t fly and she had to have him in bed with her.  She then proceeded to send me out looking for him while describing what I was to be looking for; “He’s got white clothes, yellow hair and lays in the hay.”  Thankfully, her description allowed me to find Baby Jesus, I don’t think I would have found him otherwise.

4.  Natalie has figured out how to push her older sister’s buttons already.  The favorite thing of the week is to crawl down to Claire’s room and steal her pacifiers from her bed.  (Yes, we still have those retched things, but they have to stay in her bed – that’s our next battle!)  Natalie knows just what she is doing as she squeals in delight while crawling down the hallway with Claire’s pacifier in her mouth!

3.  I am unable to wear most jeans without having my ‘coin-slot’ (aka butt crack) exposed while sitting on the floor to play with the girls (please tell me I’m not alone here!).  Claire took notice one day and unbeknownst to me played me like a slot machine.  When I used the restroom later, I discovered a small hair-tie in my undies.  When I asked Claire if she had put it down my pants, she giggled and ran away.

2.  Natalie is getting even faster at crawling and cruising.  If you turn your head for 2 seconds she’s out of the room headed for something that she’s not supposed to get into.  Ryan and I were in the kitchen one day while keeping a watchful eye in the living room for Natalie.  Or so we thought.  Claire soon exclaims, “Hey Natty, you can’t have chips!”  Claire had left a small bowl of Pringles withing reach of her sister.  Natalie decided that she didn’t need small bites anymore and a giant Pringle was more her speed!  She really just wants to do whatever her big sister is doing :-)

1.  I can’t do this laugh justice by just writing, so I must show the video:

“How do I look?”  We seriously laughed until we cried!

It’s hard to believe that we are able to say this is the first Saturday Laughs of 2012.  Thank you for letting me share our laughs with you!

    The link up doesn't seem to be working. I am sure Melissa will fix it when she is able. Make sure you all wish her a Happy Birthday (Monday)!!

    Ha ha, the Little People nativity was a hit here too!

    Melissa, enjoy your vacation!

    Oh I saw that Little People Nativity Scene at Target and wanted it SO BAD for Cupcakes – maybe next year!! I love Claire's description of Baby Jesus.

    I know what you mean about the coin slot – I wear a nursing tank every day which I'm able to tuck in and that prevents peek-a-boo pretty well – until it comes untucked…

    Great laughs! I'll link mine in this comment! :o)

    Ah, not again! I am so disappointed, this only happens when I have good ones, LOL. I was excited to share my laughs for this week since we just got back to school. I will save it and link it up next week ;)

  5. Naked Mommy says

    OMG those are all hilarious! YES, I have a coin slot too. The jeans just don't fit right since kids. It doesn't help that I insist on wearing my low rise jeans from my 20s. LOL. And the ABC video? Priceless!! I hope you're capturing lots of the kids' funny moments on video. The Top 5 Laughs are awesome but the video adds so much. Now I wanna get my videocamera out… Happy New Year! : )
