This, That, and The Other

I just had to share a few funny things that go on in our lives.
These kids make me laugh!
Hunter has become a bit of an entreprenuer. He has this lovely collection of rocks that he has collected over the last year or so. Recently he has come up with the idea of selling them to become rich enough to buy his own toys. Originally he thought he could sell them for $90 each, but we talked him into just selling them for a quarter. However, when he went sell a rock to the neighbor, he bumped the price up to $6. She was able to negotiate him back down to $1. So here he is with his first dollar he's made from selling his goods. Watch out because he might try to sell to you next.
Laundry Day
Sometimes I do laundry all in one day. Sometimes it is once a week, and sometimes it is everyother week. This picture happens to be taken on an "every other week". I don't know how you do it at your house, but at ours we collect all the socks from each batch of clothes in a basket. After all the loads of laundry are done and put away, we have a sock matching party! Fun huh?!?
I just can never believe how many socks there are!
Hunter made a mountain in the basket of socks. He was working hard so they wouldn't fall over.

There is our lovely "sock mountain". Believe it or not, we very rarely have strays when we do our socks this way.

Funny Guy!
So, I got lunch on the table one afternoon and Hunter put the silverware on for me. I left the room to go help Chance and when I came back, Hunter was holding his fork and spoon like this and said, "Look Mom, it's a SPORK"

This poor guy, just can't seem to stop getting hurt. This newest ouch is from a fall down stairs in a home that is currently being built. We can't be sure exactly how it happened, but Hunter said Chance fell down 10 stairs. We are probably lucky he didn't poke his eye, or break a bone. We think he might have a little scar though.
Pretty impressive

"Mom, don't wash me! I am a bad guy...grrrrrr!

While I was sewing, someone was disguising himself as a bad guy.
This is what he came up with. Of course, I washed it off, but washable markers don't really wash all the way off the first time. (I've learned it takes 3 times usually!)
Watch out! This guy will give you a run for your money if you mess with him.

That Chance is hysterical! He is one tough little man. And you tell Hunter I would buy a dollar rock from him anyday (all the neighbor kids throw our rocks in our yard down the storm drain so we could actually use a few). And lastly I am totally going to do that sock trick. I always have some left over I don't know what to do with! Great idea!
