America's Funniest Home Videos...and Adria

One of Adria's favorite shows is America's Funniest Home Videos. It has been a staple in our house well, since it was on in the late eighties. I love it, and frankly never tire of the endless nut shots and people getting their wits scared out of them. And let's not forget of course the never ending stream of animals humping. On AFV animals hump animals, animals hump people and animals hump inanimate objects.

So on Christmas Eve Thad and I were watching a special Christmas episode of AFV. I asked him to record it so we could watch later with Adria. We stopped watching it and saved it for later. So after everyone left on Christmas Day and we settled in for some family time we pulled up the episode of AFV and settled in to watch.

We are happily watching the episode when a clip comes on with a family posing for a Christmas photo in front of sliding glass door. All of a sudden you see, that's right, two reindeer humping each other. And not in a stationary were humping whilst traveling.

Adria starts laughing hysterically and says "Look! Those two reindeer are attacking each other!"


Thad and I start howling. I mean, flat out guffaws are coming out of our mouths.

Adria looks very upset, "What is so funny?!"  About 10 seconds pass and then she says in all seriousness...."They're not reindeer...are they?"


Thad and I are beyond words at this point and the laughter continued for roughly five minutes.

We never did say why it was so funny.

Wintertime fun...a little early

Anyone who knows me at all, knows that I love winter...but I HATE snow. If I have to deal with the snow, I would like it to shut everything down. Anything less than that is just super annoying. I never enjoyed sledding because all you got was a chapped hiney. SO...I was the kid inside by the fire, reading a book. Shocking I know.

Adria on the other hand....LOVES the snow. And she loves to play in the snow. And she REALLY loves building things in the snow. Last week we got around 2 inches and when I got home from work she came running up to me.

"Mommy, mommy! You have to come see what I built!"

So I'm thinking snow angel, snow man or woman...let's be P.C. here. Boy was I WAY off.

My daughter built....a freaking snow living room!!!!!! Complete with sofa, end table, television and remote.

Repeat...snow sofa, snow end table, snow television and SNOW REMOTE!!!!!

Doesn't she look cozy?
Here you can sort of see the remote.
I wonder what's on?
So there it is. Snow living room, complete with accent lamp. I really wonder about this kid sometimes. I was never this creative. She continues to amaze!!!
