don't hate me.

This is my freezer at the moment. It's pretty typical. There is no party anytime in the next day or so to make this ok or normal. But it reminds me of one of my favorite Doug stories.

For as long as I can remember Doug and I have taken FULL advantage of the buy one get one free sales for ice cream...we rotate our stock based on whatever is one sale. A big bowl of ice cream at the end of the day (covered in caramel) is like our reward for surviving another day of parenthood.

Anywho...Doug and I are at Food Lion one day...standing at the freezer section deciding on our ice cream indulgence options...we are each standing there with two tubs of ice cream in our hands...four tubs total. Apparently Doug was feeling a little embarrassed by our gluttony so he says, loud enough for all in the aisle to hear him
"This should be enough ice cream for the party".
Only funny because there was no party...unless you count the two of us sitting on the couch at the end of the day.
To this day I can't stand at the freezer without thinking of that story and giggling to myself.
So this weekend...very little was accomplished. Very little. Moses caught a cold and Aaron got two teeth. That is about the extent of it. So this morning my mission is get the ball rolling in the right direction and get my act together. Until then...Enjoy some photos of my sweet little men.
Doesnt' every child have a photo like this?
That puppy in the foreground is Doug's pound puppy from back in the day. :)
Is there anything sweeter than a thumb sucking baby?
I think not.
Baby Aaron says "Go Giants!"

Now I am OFF to get going in the right direction...I have orders to fill, party preparations to get on top of...and cleaning to do to get ready for Moses party...loads of Doug's family are coming down for the weekend....it should be good times...if I can get my act together. :)

Oh my goodness, what a FUNNY story! Definitely made it a little easier for me to be awake so early on a Monday morning. :) Thanks, Crystal. :) And what cute babies you have!

Morgan said...

Haha and I thought my family was bad with ice cream. You guys win!

We hardly ever have ice cream at our house unless it's leftover from a birthday party or something, but Kyle brought some home last night and it was wonderful. Maybe we need to keep some in stock . . .

Trish said...

Oh my we so can not keep that much ice cream in our house, 'cause I would eat it all!

Too bad we couldn't have planned a getaway trip to Kansas together :)

Maybe someday... wouldn't that be awesome!?

Stephanie said...

If I do not have a huge bowl of ice cream covered in mini-marshmallows at the end of the day, something is wrong. Loved that story, so funny!

That story about your hubby cracked me up. He looks so serious in all the pictures so that just really made me chuckle!!!

Aurora said...

That ice cream story makes me laugh...sounds like something my hubby would say! Actually, I have a funny story...we went out to eat with one if his co-workers & wife for the first time. On our way there, he said "we aren't going to be able to order the way we usually do, that would be embarrasing". So we didn't...and left dinner still hungry (but at least we weren't embarrased, right!?)

Are/were both of your boys thumb suckers? My first took a pacifier and it was really easy to break him of it. Now, my second is a finger sucker and I am concerned with how I will be able to break him of it when he is older. Any advice?

Heather said...

oh i love thumbsuckers!

My crazy crazy life said...

That is hilarious! You sound like me and my husband...we do stuff like that all the time. We even blame our kids sometimes and throw them under the bus if we act or eat like kids...HA!

Jaimie said...

Your kids are adorable! I love the ice cream story. What beats Heath ice cream? I mean, really!

Ashley said...

My freezer always has almost that much ice cream in it.
Which is pretty sad, this is why I have a hard time loosing weight... :) But it's so good!

Amber said...
