my future girl scout...or champion competitive eater

OK, so Sunday morning I'm in the kitchen making gingerbread pancakes from Central Market (these are a good, different twist on regular pancakes...don't rush out to buy them but they are a nice change of pace) and Graelyn is in there with me, opening up cabinets galore. You see, this is her favorite thing to do in the whole world. I should take a picture so you can see the damage she does...of course she has her 2 cabinets she's allowed to get in, the rest are off limits.

Anyway, she's doing her thing, I'm doing mine and I look over at her to see what she's up to...and this is what I found:

Wow mom! What a great breakfast!

Oh yeah, this is going to feel good coming out the other end!

Do we really have to clean it off?
I kinda think she looks like an elf in this picture...just something about her mischevious look on her face.

All I can say is "Aunt Bekah" would be so proud!!

PS, on a TOTALLY different note...the other day, maybe 2 days ago, I checked out my friends blogs (bloalker=stalker + blogger) and I was mentioned in 2, yes 2 of them folks! How exciting!!! So Sarah and KJ, thanks! That was the best shout out I've had in a while!!! YIPEE!

I was so scared you were dead because you had been off the radar for so long. Glad to have you back!!!

AND, I am proud of YOU for having candy in your house---we don't even have candy in ours! Graelyn does look like an elf in that picture. Funny.

Sarah said...

That looks like Peanut Butter eggs from Easter!?!? (Totally not dissing you...those things have an amazing shelf-life, if that's what it was.) If so...let's all take a moment right now and remember that Margaret would have been dead if that happened at our house.

Glad you're writing and glad you enjoyed the shout outs.

Sarah Owen said...

Cracking up right now that this sweet baby girl loves to be DIRTY!!! BTW, your floor looks AWESOME in these pictures, I really do like the color. Good job Mrs. Home Depot!!!!

pink is the new black said...

OK, those are thin mint COOKIES COWELL WOMEN! What is your problem??? Did you not read the title????? GIRL SCOUT COOKIES! DUH...ha ha, just picture me cracking up at y'all and yelling because you are making me laugh so hard that you didn't realize (or read evidently) that Grae ate cookies (ok ok with a chocolatey coating) Ha! Love you both and you too Sarah Beth...yeah, girl likes to get dirty...just wait for the pics in a few weeks of her cake...hot pink icing! Thanks for the floor comment..that means alot that you like it since you are finishing up your house and all its splendor-southwest-in Cabot Arkansas thing! LOVE IT

Rebekah said...

In our defense, what is the yellow wrapper in G's left hand? That is what is giving us the impression of it being PB eggs. I don't see a cookie box ANYWHERE and, quite frankly, your title is not a sure give away that it was GS cookies. So, I believe I have put you in your place and have valiantly won this argument. Tah dah.

Sarah said...

Yeah!!!!! You tell it sister!!! I had to go back and read the title and was all like, "Whatever ANGIE, 'future girl scout' could just mean that she's a cutie or something." That package totally looks like a Reese's PB Egg. Again, not dissing that...those things are delicious...but also deadly.

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Hey...that was just what I looked like this a.m. but no one thought it was cute....just sad, really.

Yeah, Ang, I'm gonna have to go with my blogger friends on this one. Now, I KNEW that it was the Thin Mints but I wouldn't have if it were just for the title alone.

BTW--your cupboards are ridiculously organized. How in the WORLD do you find time to do it all. You frustrate me....2 kids, a job, a bow business, whatever. I'm calling you a name in my head. Guess which one?

Rebekah said...

Is it Bitch??? Ooops. Sorry.

Sarah said...

Or maybe ho-bag? What? I'm just sayin'...mabye it was ho-bag.

rob said...

Ha! You sisters better keep it clean now that your Mom is reading these things.

First: those pictures of Graelyn are SO STINKIN CUTE.

Second: Yeah, what's up with the organized cabinets? Who has time for that when there are blogs to read?

Now, to important matters: I am going to totally buck the trend and say that the yellow package looks like a Fig Newton package to me. But the idea of Reese's eggs is really making me want to go pull out my box of Easter decorations from the attic just to see if maybe, just maybe, one escaped me at Easter and is still there. I don't care if it melted in the attic...I will lick it off the wrapper. I ain't too proud.

The Robertson Family said...

Ooops. "Rob" of the previous post is Jenny of "The Robertson Family's" better half. I did not realize he has created his own profile on here. I just asked him "WTF?" and he said he is tired of seeing all our posts and has decided to start his own blog. This should be good. I will keep you posted if and when his blog launches!

The Robertson Family said...

Oh, I now need to further clarify: I, Jenny, actually made the post that says "Rob." I didn't realize he was signed in. Sheesh. This whole two-bloggers-in-the-family thing is going to get complicated!

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Thanks for the clarification, Rob, or Robertson family--that was a bit confusing. I don't have that prob.--my husband is so not interested in blogs--he's more interested in CNN-WHATEVER!!! What's more interesting? World events or blogs? I think we know the answer.

For further clarification--the name was dirty ho-bag skunky skanky bitch.

Rebekah said...

I just threw up from the spinning that my head did trying to understand the whole Rob/Robertson thing.

Chris said...

dirty ho-bag skunky skanky bitch.

LOL!

Rebekah said...

Just for clarification, "Chris" is my husband and he thinks that Kim is funny in her name calling.

Mommy of Two Wild Boys!!! said...

Wow!!! Where have I been???? Just tuned in and I think Ang might need some defending:) The only reason they are so organized is because that was the third time that evening that she had to put everything back in:) We do the drill every night!......And if that is not the case then.....I agree with the girls!

Sarah said...

Holy CRAP!!! Pleeeeeeeeeease come over to my house and hang out with me. Dos Equis are on tap tonight, people. We have GOT to hang out.

Jeremy said...

I am ROFLMAO that Chris used "LOL".

Sarah said...

In the spirit of Jenny and Rebekah...Jeremy is my husband.

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Hey, I'm in for hangin' and meeting whenever! It would be so fun. Plus, I have to meet Jeremy and ask him what ROFLMAO. I mean, I know what LMAO means...but the ROF is throwing me. UGH. And I thought I was SO GOOD with the teen lingo....darn new stuff...

Sarah said...

Rolling on floor laughing my a** off. :c)

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

OMG....OF COURSE! WTF? That isn't NEW...why did I not remember that?! UGH. I blame Landon...IMHO, I think that my brain turned to mush after him. That, and my feet grew. I bought a SIZE 10 the other day. That's right....a SIZE 10! Naughty words. IDK--it's crazy.

pink is the new black said...

OK, so I'm back in the groove folks and I'm just ROTFLMAO too...is that right? I was confused with the lingo...I'm getting it...promise and I am backing Jennifer aka "Love my Wild Boys" it WAS the 5th time at least that I put those things away!!! Those are the 2 cabinets (the snacks and tuperware) that Grae is allowed to get in...if I'm putting s&*t up 5oo times a day, it better freakin' be organized:)
Soooo, here's my thought...we can all meet at Graelyn's party!!! Jenny, I don't have your new Flo-Mo address and Sarah and Jeremy...bring the Margs and we'll all meet up! That would just be the funnest thing ever...sooo, its a date...Jenny, need the address..I've had the invite for like 2 weeks and Sarah, I'll get yours from Bek...its a date...July 26th 4-6:30...we're having burgers and dogs and cake so let me know if you are coming so I'll know how much to get...seriously...its on! And Sarah, bring the Dos Equis to Grae's party...she ain't too proud either (reference to Aunt Jenny's licking the package in the attic from earlier)...wait...is licking the package in the attic kinda like 7 minutes in heaven? Sounds like it...just sayin'...I never played that game though...ask Jenny, she went to high school with me, she knows...I was a total prude:) seriously, sad really.
Oh yeah, one more thing...good job boys on the comments!!!! Chris and Jeremy!

The Robertson Family said...

LOL at Angie! Can't wait for Graelyn's party and the meetup. Count us in! You had me at Dos Equis.

And if I found a Reese's cup in the attic, yes, it would be like 7 Minutes in Heaven (and much better than the version we played in high school...yes, Ang is right...we both were kind of prudes...except when I was at church camp...)

pink is the new black said...

Jenny!!! You totally outted yourself!! I wasn't going to say anything about church camp! But yeah, those east Texas boys and east Tennessee boys just do something to us really...my "camp" experience was later, when I was actually the counselor...ugh

The Robertson Family said...

Just to be clear, when Angie says I "outted" myself, she just meant that I revealed I was a ho-bag at church camp. But it was with boys, people. Boys.

pink is the new black said...

Jenny...you weren't a ho bag at all...you kept with the same guy every year dude...that's commitment! Fo real...I look back on those days and WISH I had kissed a few of those boys...would have made church camp WAY more fun, you know?

Vicki said...

Graelyn is so cute even with extra thick make-up on the lower portion of her face. AND LOOK AT THOSE EYES! They are beautiful.
Blessings and Love,
Vicki
