Believe Me, I've Been Hating this Blog More Than You

Not only have I not posted, I still have blossoms on my banner and Cherry Coke on my sidebar. I've decided blogging and summer are not a good combination for me.  But here I am anyway, as if you cared.  

But let's cut to the chase, wasn't Toy Story 3 brilliant?  I loved it so much it doesn't do it justice to write about it.


But let me back up.  A few years ago, we went on a family vacation to California with my parents and siblings.  The trip happened to be over June 20, Hazel's birthday.  So we celebrated it in California.  This year, as her birthday approached, she said she'd like to go on a trip for her birthday--"like when I was in California."  Jed, the softy, tried to make that happen.  When I realized it probably wasn't in the cards, I broke the bad news to her.  She took it a lot better than I thought and said, "Well, if we can't be on a trip for my birthday, I want to go to Tucanos." 

That's right, Tucanos, the Brazilian-style meat buffet (and, you know, pretty awesome salad bar).  

So we celebrated Hazel's big day at Tucanos, then went to Toy Story 3.  Love that Hazel.  What a classy, meaty day!  (side note, my sons refuse to eat meat except for Subway Ham. Subway ham folks.)

But speaking of Woody-- our dear Woody Cowboy Doll is Missing!  Missing!!  Did we leave him at your house?  

The only thing I can think of is that he is at a Daycare center trying to rescue his friends from a nasty bear.  I'm sure he'll be back soon.  (By the way, did anyone else notice that in the movie Woody said he lived on ELM?) 

So, I guess this blogging stuff wasn't too awful.  I might even come back and tell you about the rodeo we took our kids to in Yellowstone where we may or may not have seen our own "real life Woody Cowboy" get trampled by a bull.

For awhile there I thought that you and your whole family had been kidnapped…glad to see that this wasn't so.

I hope that Woody does what he needs to and then makes his way back to the safety of his home. I have a feeling that there will be at least one little boy who will be distraught if he doesn't.

This week I WILL go see that movie.

I loved that movie. I promise Kevin and I were the ONLY ones @ the drive in without children. It was awesome!

Welcome back. Don't feel bad, I posted for the 1st time since May. Yikes.

We lost a buzz a few weeks ago and haven't seen hide nor hair of him. We bought a replacement - just like Lotso's family. So sad. Great movie, though!

I actually do care that you update your blog because you make me happy!
I am a little concerned about the welfare of your little ones after watching their beloved "real life Woody" get trampled. I get traumatized at those things and look like a crazy person as I watch and scream things at them like "You moron!! RUN! RUN! It's a bull for heaven's sake! Get out while you still can!" Yeah, I'm THAT girl at the rodeo.
Anyway, glad you're back and I'm sure Woody will turn up soon. He just loves the attention and drama.

the point of alarm isn't the subway ham, it's that my sons won't eat meat. they refuse, categorically. i'm sending them to meat camp, first chance i get.

i'm so glad you posted! i've been checking at least thrice a week and was a little worried, to be honest. agreed that toy story 3 was great. super funny and we got to see it for free (even better). you guys should see despicable me next, it is HILARIOUS.
also, there are far worse things than subway ham. at least that's SOME form of meat. wanna know what my raleigh gets when we go to subway? bread. just plain bread. not a waste of money at all. and for the record, he's 4.5 and never eaten a vegetable. please don't tell dcfs.

i agree! it was brilliant! I laughed and cried and I thought of your boys the entire time!

I wish I could have made hazel's California dreams come true. Did she mention her aunt ali?

Love you! Hope you're having a great summer!
