ruby slippers, elizabethan collars, hair clips & dorfus farkletush

So in effort to post at least twice a week here is a very random sampler of my week so far....

For YW tonight we are making ruby slippers for girls camp. This year is stake camp and the theme, I think, will be so cute... Wizard of Oz. So each ward must choose a character from the movie and dress up a door, otherwise known as 'home' that will mark the ward's camp site. The stake is Oz and their door is green with a little door cut out towards the top. So since we chose Dorothy we decided to skip t-shirts and do ruby slippers. We tried a few options, but in the end we just glued the glitter on and then sprayed it with a plastic poly spray. I think the girls will look so cute running around camp with their sparkling shoes. If anybody has any ideas for crafts, chants, activities or themed ideas please let me know. I would love all your input! (if you don't want it public, email me with your ideas:))
Poor Paulo. Monday he had his very ugly tumor removed. Today we had to have it re wrapped. The other Vet decided he needed the Elizabethan Collar. He had not even sniffed at his bandage, but she didn't want to chance him biting out his stitches. He looked so sad when we put it on. He just hung his head. He doesn't compensate for the additional mass around him, so he keeps running into the walls, counters, doors, sofa, everything. I don't think we will keep it on him the whole time, especially since he doesn't seem to even notice he leg is bandaged. The only problem is, Alayna tied it in a knot, so I may have to cut the thing off. For all those who are worried the tumor was biopsied and it is not cancer. It was a very rare case of an ingrown hair that as the vet said "got angry". It was the size of a ping pong ball and was very gross. Jay has a pic of the tumor on his phone and if it wasn't so disgusting, I'd post it. So...$500 later the ingrown hair is gone. Jay is going to talk to H.R. to see if we can add Paulo to our insurance. To Paulo's credit, he did such a good job getting the bandage changed and letting them look at it. He hasn't chewed on it and seems to be enjoying his 2 week stay inside the house, while he heals (He can't get his bandage or wound wet).
This video was taken a week or two ago. I was going to post videos on the side bar of each kid, but I couldn't figure out how to do it without posting it to you tube first. I told Alayna to tell me her favorite song, or favorite movie, or something she likes to do. The first take she had her finger in her nose the whole time so this one is take 2. I think this was a Sunday night, (thus the silliness) and she had done her own hair and was so proud of her independent beauty. She keeps us laughing.....

My brother -in- law sent this to me and it could be a little crude, but I could not stop laughing as I read through the names. It is sooooo immature, but a good laugh. (so hard I'm crying) Don't be surprised if I start calling you by your new names. (Jay, Dinky Farkletush....Emily O, Dorky Bubblebutt...Emily K, Dorky Chickendoodle.....Josie M, Snooty Dippindunkin...Amy W, Dinky Dippintush)

The following is excerpted from a children's book, Captain Underpants And the Perilous Plot Professor Poopypants, by Dave Pilkey, in which the evil Professor forces everyone to assume new names...
So:1. Use the third letter of your first name to determine your New first name:

a = snickle b = doombah c = goober d = cheesey

e = crusty f = greasy g = dumbo h = farcus

i = dorky j = doofus k = funky l = boobie

m = sleezy n = sloopy o = fluffy p = stinky

q = slimy r = dorfus s = snooty t = tootsie

u = dipsy v = sneezy w = liver x = skippy

y = dinky z = zippy

2. Use the second letter of your last name to determine the first half of your new last name:

a = dippin b = feather c = batty d = burger

e = chicken f = barffy g = lizard h = waffle

i = farkle j = monkey k = flippin l = fricken

m = bubble n = rhino o = potty p = hamster

q = buckle r = gizzard s = lickin t = snickle

u = chuckle v = pickle w = hubble x = dingle

y = gorilla z = girdl e

3. Use the third letter of your last name to determine the second half of your new last name:

a = butt b = boob c = face d = nose

e = hump f = breath g = pants h = shorts

i = lips j = honker k = head l = tush

m = chunks n = dunkin o = brains p = biscuits

q = toes r = doodle s = fanny t = sniffer

u = sprinkles v = frack w = squirt x = humperdinck

y = hiney z = juice

Thus, for example, George W. Bush's new name is: Fluffy Chucklefanny.

Now when you SEND THIS ON...use your new name as the subject.And remember that children laugh an average of 146 times a day; adults laugh an average of 4 times a day. Put more laughter in your day.

Thanks Brent for the email!

I love the shoes. I can't wait to make mine tonight. Also, I love your new recipe sidebar- I had though of doing it but you beat me to it- plus you're a much better cook. Love, Dinky Dippintush.

This is Sloppy Farkleface! Loved your blog. I'm so excited for the girls and their slippers! How fun. You could listen to the Wicked sound track (best songs are on my blog) and see if anything jumps out to use for camp. Wicked is the story about the witches of the east and west before they story of Oz. Great music!
Yummy recipe. I'm jelous of your kitchen!
