Shackin' Up

Happy Valentine's Day!  Are your kids all atwitter with Vday excitement?  Shoot, are YOU all atwitter?  Jim and I never do much- we're minimalists to the max when it comes to this particular day.  Some wives might get upset, but I try not to take it to heart.  Really the only "tines" Jim is interested in are the ones on deer.  Which is fine with me, especially now that I have Cukids (that was terrible.  It was supposed to be a play on Cupid?  I apologize) to celebrate with.

Speaking of my little cherubs, here they are celebrating in tutus my girlfriend made them:

Mols practices her semi-nude pirouette.

The girlies.  For Vday I told them they could wear headbands instead of having their hair done.  I'm generous, I know.

When you were in elementary school was there ever a time when the big news was that you could mouth the words, "Olive you" to somebody and it would look just like, "I love you"??  Shocking news to a sixth grader.  This way you could confess your love to your crush, but later when he or she asked about it you could deny deny deny!  "I would never say such a thing!  You completely misunderstood!  I was mouthing 'olive you'.  As if!  I mean, don't flatter yourself!"  And then you and your girlfriends could sprint to the bathroom to reapply your Bonnie Bell lip smacker and shriek in delighted angst.

Anyway, have a Happy Valentine's Day dear friends.  Olive you forever. 


Also, for the fun of it, one of my all-time favorite love songs.  It just speaks to me.

Love the semi nude Cherub. I'm crying at 6 in the morning, and it hurts. Can't pay for that kind of enthusiam.

Jim, once again sounds like Warwick. Only Warwick doesn't shoot deer. Only dear. Consequently he's not that keen on the holiday either.

I'm telling you, you are rubbing off on me. I'm getting mad pun skillz.

Oh, and I forgot to say I loooovvvvveeee the B-52's. So much so that they are on my Halloween mixed CD that I play in the garage as trick or treaters scoot by. If that ain't love, what is?

@Fanny: you should totally get your daughter one- I think tutus bring out the girlie in anybody! :)

@Team Howell: no, YOU are amazing! (ladies and gents, this is the maker of the tutus!)

@Nicki: You are a natural with the puns. I'm so ashamed of myself for naming this post: TooToo Cute. So obvious. And yes, the B-52s are epic. I remember having a pool party in sixth grade and nobody knew who they were and I was like, "well I just can't be friends with any of you then!"
