Popsicle Stick Joke of the Day and homemade popsicles

Since it is summer, popsicles have made their way into our house. The kids really like the popsicle with the jokes on them. We have little sticks all over the house with jokes. So here is one we like.

What are prehistoric monsters called when they sleep?
A dinosnore!

Popsicle consumption here is not limited to store bought. We also like to make our own. Making smoothies turned into saving the leftovers for popsicles. Just a few cups, sticks, fresh picked blueberries and, of course, mini-marshmallows - T loves those things - and we had popsicles.

Not Quite Snow White

Not that I have ever agreed with it (i have the same hair and skin color.. that's it), but people have said that I look like Snow White. I never thought I did until saw this picture. I might not look like her right now, but I definitely have felt like she feels in this picture. My husband isn't as slack as the prince is here, but just the overall jist of the picture struck me.

I saw this from How About Orange who linked to it from here. Totally worth the time to click through and look at the other pictures. Some interesting commentary on the views of women in society now; myself, not necessarily agreeing with them all.

Side Note - I was trying to type this up and T was smooching me all over my arms and cheeks. I asked him to hold off for a minute so I could type and he said he couldn't help it. He said "I just love to kiss you momma because you smell like you." That just makes all those angry Snow White moments melt away.

E took this picture blueberry picking last week or her bro. I found that she has the ability to really catch some great views of us all. I have taken to giving her the camera on our excursions just to see what she sees. I will post more of those later.
