Friday Funnies

It's been a while since I have joined Kim at Homesteadersheart for Friday Funnies.... I came across this and just had to join the fun this week.
Hop over to Kim's and get some more laughs!
Happy weekend everyone! :)

A man and a woman go to the carnival every year. Every time the man says,"Anna can we ride them airplanes that goes up for a couple of minutes then comes back down?"

The woman always replied by saying,"We don`t need to spend any extra money on them airplanes,its to expensive.Ten dollars is ten dollars."

Tom, the pilot, said," Larry, every year I hear you say you want to ride my airplanes, and every year Anna says it`s too expensive. I`ll make you a deal, if I do all of my flips and tricks with you in there with me, and you don`t say one word, I`ll give you the ride for free."

Anna and Larry discussed it and decided they would take the deal.They got up in the air and Tom did all of his tricks and flips.

Tom said,"Larry I just knew you`d say something on that first flip,but you didn`t!"

Larry replied," I was going to say something when Anna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."

I am the type of person that likes instant gratification! Can anybody relate? I love to do home improvement projects and really love the ones that are quick and easy. I love to go to Goodwill and Salvation Army to find things that need "rethinking".
Here are a few things I have found so far this summer.... I will only show you the before now because I am to lazy to take the after pictures right now....hehehehehe!! Stay tuned :)

Meet poor Mr. Squirrel.... this baby has been in my Mother-in-laws basement for YEARS! My hubby and I went plundering one day and found him. My Son's room is done in a hunting theme so I thought Mr. Squirrel would be tooooo cute! FREE! Remember, this is before!

Next, we have old yucky pot.... this was in my Mother-in-law's garage and she told me to take it...FREE.... again.... before!

And last, we have a not too bad buffet lamp... bought at Goodwill for $5.00

Stay tuned for the after pictures :) I will post them soon.

Have a great Thursday!!!

All star Annalee

It has been so long since I have posted about our happenings.... We have been so busy!

Annalee made the all-star softball team this year and we have been hitting the ball field a lot! Her first tournament was this past weekend and they did soooo good!

Her team is called the Explosion and they came in 1st against all-star teams and 3rd against travel ball teams!

She had so much fun and is now hooked! Momma and Daddy sweated like pigs but it was so worth it to watch her having fun. We were at the ball field for 13 hours! Fun, fun!

She has another tournament this weekend.... Friday and Sat. I will keep you posted on how she does! :)

Later that same day I took the kids by McDonald's for a Ice cream cone and decided to get me one of the yummy Mocha Frappacinos....I ordered a small Mocha(we were in the drive thru). When I got it it was a Caramel.... Yuck.... I went back in and told them nicely that I ordered a Mocha... and they gave me a Large one for my trouble!!! Yummy!

It was a fun frugal day! :)

Poor Daddy

This will be a quiet weekend at the Scarbary house..... Daddy had some dental work done this morning. He is snoozing as I type. It is so pitiful to see him not feel great. Hopefully he will be back to himself soon!

Annalee has made him some signs to hold up since he can't talk right now. Isn't that the sweetest! I think we will rent some movies later and have a quiet evening!

We love you daddy and hope you feel better soon!

Happy weekend!

6 updates!!!

There are 6 new updates below!!! Thanks for taking time to check on us!!!!

Time to brag!!

This school year has been such a busy one for my kids, especially Annalee.

I have been so proud of all her accomplishments this year. With her 11th birthday being last week, I decided it was a great time to brag on her a little!!!!

1. She PASSED the CRCT with flying colors!!!!

2. Her portfolio paper on the state of Georgia scored the highest out of 83 fifth grade papers! Her teacher said she honestly could not find a single problem with the paper! She scored a 5's all the way across the Rubric scale.

3. She meet the standards for her State mandatory 5th grade writing test. She had to go to a testing sight, was given her topic to write on and had to develop her idea, write the rough draft, and write the final draft in 2 hours. She did great!

4. She finished all the requirements to move on the Middle school!!! (there were too many to list!) She is now officially a 6th grader!

5. Her softball team won every game and are League Champions!

6. She made the All-star team and will play in several tournaments this summer!

7. She completed her year in Bible Study Fellowship and studied the whole book of John!


You have worked so hard this year and all your hard work has paid off!!! I am so very proud of you!!!!!

love, Momma xoxox

P.S. This friday is Josh's birthday..... I will brag on him them also!!!! hehehe :)
