I Guess Elves Need a Bath too

This morning we found the elves taking a "bath" in the bathroom sink. Echo's hair was wrapped up in a towel and Simon was all wrapped up. They used MY peppermint body wash and a nail brush. Those crazy elves!

Really...Green milk!

So last night Simon and Echo decided to make our milk green. It was kind of weird eating cereal this morning with green milk. Very...um...appetizing....NOT!

Last night Simon decided to make a snow angel but not being able to find snow he used sugar and sprinkles. :) And Echo just loves watching all his antics.

Our Mischievous Elves are BACK

So Saturday morning our elves, Simon and Echo, decided to show up by hanging in our closet. Our elves have been returning every year since Andrew was 3 years old (now 10) and Abby was 9 (now 16). This is looked forward to every year and this year since Abby is now 16, Andrew has adopted both elves because he thinks Abby doesn't take care of hers anymore. ;) I really don't believe he actually "believes" they come alive at night any more, it's just the fact that he enjoys seeing what messes they get into. And for a few years it's been quite a job finding mischievous things for them to do. But because of some of my blogging friends I have found several blogs that have really cute ideas for the next few weeks. And this year I decided I would blog what our elves do for others to get ideas.

Sunday night we hadn't gotten our Christmas Tree out yet so Simon being the inventive one decided to "build" his own tree out of Solo red cups. Then he fell in one and got stuck. Being the wonderful sister Echo is she just sat back and enjoyed it!! :)

Andrew leaves them candy canes and graham cracker every night to feed them.

Last night Simon and Echo decided that it would be fun to dye the toilet water red. Very Christmas guys! :)

My Cowboy

We started horseback lessons yesterday. He has been wanting to do this for several years and we finally found a stable close to
us that gives lessons. He had so much fun!

Walking into that stable flooded
me with so many great childhood memories. Even the smell made me think of my friends that I had when I had my horse. We would spend entire days during the summer riding who knows where and come back right as it was getting dark. No cell phones and no way for anybody to get in touch with us, we just rode. We even attempted to go through a Hardee's drive-thru and order our lunch. But the horses didn't weigh enough to set off the buzzer to order. But it was worth the try!! :)

I'm so glad he's doing this. And I sure hope he sticks with it. Maybe daddy will be buying a horse instead of a dirt bike one day!! :)

From The Mouths Of Babes

I cannot let this summer get by without this story. My facebook friends have heard about this but I just have to blog about it.

Our recent trip to Gulf Shores Al was actually a work trip for Mr. K so me and the kids stayed at the condo and enjoyed the pool and beach during the day while he worked. So on our first day at the beach while feeding the seagulls my little mr personality (10 yr old) said, " Hey mom! Those beach eagles sure love those cheese nips!" I said, "Beach eagles???" And Miss A (15 yr old)

starts cracking up and says, " Beach eagles! Those are SEAGULLS!"

We will forever now call seagulls beach eagles.

So on our way home we passed our lake and Miss A said, "Well if seagulls are 'beach eagles' then our geese are 'lake eagles'!" No truer words were ever spoken!! :)
