The Case of the Missing Blue Pants

These BLUE Jiu-Jitsu pants were lost..... but were they EVER found?? Did we solve the mystery?? Read on to see.................

One day after Jiu Jitsu, we had to run another errand and Dante prefers to not go anywhere BUT Jiu-Jitsu in his uniform. So he took off his pants and jacket and just wore his shorts and t-shirt. Two days later, when he had to go back for another lesson-- we couldn't find his pants ANYWHERE! Then I remembered he had taken them off in the car- so they must be in the very back.... nope! So- I keep looking- even looked on the fan- because we all remember what used to happen when Ethan couldn't find his shirts.

  But nothing- and I was NOT about to shell out more money- just to buy a pair of new pants- unless I knew 100% for SURE- that they were lost forever. So- we miss the lesson and I keep looking and looking. A week goes by- and I'm like- alright they are gone! They have to be- I've searched high and low, back and forth, sideways left and right--- I told Chet and he said- well they probably fell out of the car at some point and no one saw or remembered. I was like- sweeeeettt!! So, I get the kids in the car and I tell Dante we will just have to buy him another pair of pants-- and then this conversation ensued:

Dante: OH YEAH!!- Wait mom- did you check the lost and found??
Me: Nope! Why would I check the lost and found- and WHAT lost and found?? At your school??
Dante: No- the one here.
Me: At the complex? Why would they be here at the complex?
Dante: Well- I just remembered that I was carrying everything in- my backpack, my jacket, my pants, my belt, and I dropped my pants- and I forgot to go back out and get them. So maybe they are in the lost and found.
Me: Are you for real Dante? Me laughing and saying- why didn't I think of that before?! Of course! :)

 Oh, Dante- how much we LOVE YOU!!:)

Just when I thought I was over the "funny" story phase....

What do you get when you put

A Bridge

A Traffic Cone


 (this little man)
You get a nice little surprise when you turn around that looks like this:

Because Ethan decided to grab the cone he found (who knows where) and throw it over the bridge..... and the cop saw it ALL... and I saw NOTHING

I proclaim all innocence as I was trying to keep the heard going FORWARD and would turn around every few min. and say- "Hurry Up boys- REMEMBER- I'm timing us!" 

Then I turned around again- and Dante and the cop (who came out of no where!) were having a nice little chat- so I had to walk back to the cop to find out what happened. 

Ethan got a lecture. While I looked like the super cool parent that has TOTAL control of her kids;)

Oh the Joys of Life! :)

Gotta love it!!

I have been ACCUSED.......


Say WHAT?!?!

I don't think so-- just because it has been -- what 1/2 a year- doesn't mean I neglect my blog. In fact, I look at it ALL the time... and then don't post. But MAN- if you go back and read it- is has some super funny stuff.:) 

Alright FINE! Elizabeth and Emily-- here is my blog "update" 
Molly turned one! We celebrated in Texas- it was fun.. and as I blog- I remember why I don't blog- because Molly Mae is currently getting in my brand new filed box that took me 4 hours and pulling out papers. SWEEETT-- (this is for you sistah's) 

But isn't she a doll?? We LOVE her!

And just for good old times because right now I don't currently have any funny stories with pictures.... here is one of my ALL time favs of Ethan and his soccer coach.

Thanks to my amazing sister Christie who caught this on camera while I was dealing with my other kiddos-- Instead of telling Ethan to stop (because the soccer coaches son and Ethan were taking turns doing this) she just laughed and laughed and aimed the camera!


And yes- I will try to be a more "regular" blogger!
