BEES AND BUMS

Inspiring Family Home Evening handout, plagiarized by Princess Lisa (thank you, President Hinckley)~'cept that last part...which, I think we can all agree, is breathtakingly profound and reflective, especially when attached to the Bit-o-Honey, with a picture of a bee on it, people~thank you very much. Let's face it, Lisa is a heavy hitter in the innovative idea arena.
Back to School family dinner, complete with vegetable cheese soup, homemade bread sticks, fresh fruit and cream and a festive tablecloth sewn by my mother dear...because I'm better than you, that's why. Probably love my family more, too. (shrug)

Flowers purchased for Back to School family dinner. Smelling suspiciously like farts today.

Proof of love. For doth a stranger walk into a store and straight faced purchase satiny smooth 'Lady Anti Monkey Butt' for a distant relative, simply because she mentioned in a facebook update that she'd ridden a horse and now had a primate's rump? I think not...unless love courses through her veins like Dr. Pepper through my straw. Thank you, dear cousin Julia.

OK....so you are the PERFECT Mom, Princess Lisa and it DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! I was actually going to call you on Monday (since I knew that you did darling back-to-school things) to get an idea on what to do for my kids on Monday. Instead, I just had an anxiety attack and melt-down and we ended up with back-to-school pizza and bread sticks (not homemade).

As for the Monkey Butt....not sure what to say. It'll all come out in the end?!? You'll be smoother than a babies bottom?!?

Happy Thursday~ Anony :)

Am I the only one that still loves bit-o-honey? YUM!

Kara Elmore said...

Sorry - I still win .. because I did the same thing as you (minus the flowers, the homemade table cloth, the cheese soup, and the hand out) WHILE being pregnant. So no matter what YOU did ... I did it better ... because I did it while PREGNANT. Did I mention I'm PREGNANT so I win over your accomplishments??

btw - LOVE that the kids were required to drink MILK - but you got your dr. pepper and rpi.

Lady Anti Monkey Butt is one of those products I would have pegged as fake if you hadn't vouched for it.

Yep, you love your kids more... I'm okay with that :)

Natalie said...

Love it!!! What a great mom you are! I was looking at your picture and thought "someone is missing....oh, Ash!!" Sorry, hope that didn't make you cry. Love the handout BTW.... did you know that Pres. Hinkley added 3 more "Be's" to the list?? They are: Be Happy, Be Still, and Be Positive. They are so wonderful, I have them around Ethan's room so he can grow up remembering how important those things are. You do out shine us all, why oh why have you not been translated yet????

Hey the Monkey Butt Powder feels awesome! Love it.
It's in the ER for all the nurses with burrs in their B****(.

Looks like your dinner was a hit. I seriously I think it is a great thing to celebrate the beginning of school. It lets the kids know how important it is.

Sorry about the flartys. (farty flowers) Hopefully they can be thrown away soon.

As the provider of the Monkey Butt, let me assure you...this is no fake. Here in Boise is a fine store specializing in outdoor, garden, ranch, farm, etc. called D and B Supply. This is the "real deal" for ladies who spend copius amounts of time cheeks down on horses. And the container - well, how can you not love the pinkness. Lisa and I are second or removed or heaven knows what cousins who have never met. Hope to come face to face while we are both still on this earth.

McClendon said...

Aren't relatives the greatest? Julia, you are a first cousin, once removed. As your first cousin, I hope to see you again someday before one or both of us depart. I don't think I've seen you since we were kids. Ridiculous! Great gift for the princess.

How perfect. You are on top of things... YOU GO GIRL... Love your Idea. Now if only I could get Bite-o-honeys around here

Holly said...

I am SO IMPRESSED!!

I may have to plagiarize you AND Pres. Hinckley... just so MY kids think I'm COOL, too! HAH!! Thanks! ;p

The Monkey Butt stuff... ROFL!!!

I am such a loser mom and leave your blog once again butt a humbled reader. I ride nothing butt an office chair all day and a student's chair at night and my butt looks more like a flattened muffin. Got anything for that? Love the Monkey Butt stuff. Wish I invented it, but I didn't realize people had problems with their tushies.
