One of My Daughters and Family I Miss So Much!
My daughter Larin said, "I love to be a jungle gym first thing in the morning. The park is
calling my name...and the names of my dear little monkeys."
The Knapp Family consists of a couple of rowdy boys & that's not so unusual and they have a more than lovely little girl that steals your heart. The whole family makes me laugh so much, but I know where Larin gets her humor because Larin's other siblings are just as crazy.
|One Happy Little Nut!|
|Mountain Dew Breathing Mask!|
Larin said, "My laugh for the day, Finlee found a list in the grocery cart; bay leaves, garlic toast, diced tomatoes, a brain. I just know this lady has a 'Smart Alec' husband like mine who added what he needs to the list."
|My daughter Marnie & Crazy Sister, my daughter Larin at Work! Crazy Sisters!|
|Jax! You Never Know Where's He's Gonna' Land!|
|Gutter Swimming Is Wyoming Cold In The Winter?|
Jaxon's Mom: "Jax what are you doing?" "I told you picking your nose is gross." Jax explained, "I'm not picking my nose, a booger fell out so I'm putting it back in!" Larin wrote, "What the???" "Only my crazy Jaxon-man."
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin, You're my Sweetie Pie
~~~~~You're my Cuppycake, ~~~~~~
Gumdrop Snoogums-Boogums, You're the Apple of my Eye
And I love you so and I want you to know
That I'll always be right here
And I love to sing sweet songs to you
Because you are so dear"
Larin told us that the boys beg Dave, their father, everyday to say Mississippi in French. They think it's so funny and they laugh and laugh. The funniest part is that all he says is Mississippi with a French accent. Love life's simple pleasures.
|Yeah, This IS A Totally NORMAL DADDY!|
"Jaxon thinks he is so awesome today because I let him eat donuts in the living room and move the furniture and have can of soda. 5 year-olds are so easily pleased. I love it!"
|Jaxon, Can I have some Chaos For Breakfast?"|
|Just A Normal Cowboy Dean|
"Good thing Jaxon doesn't like the idea of ever growing up. I'm pretty sure I want to press pause on this little guy for forever. "Mom, I think I am the most handsome Luigi EVER!" I am partial of course, but I couldn't agree more."
"Seriously????? What is "Bunga"? Jaxon says the kitchen, his blanket, his fingers, Jaxon's sister's (Finlee) has some "Bunga" shoes, the couch everything smells like "Bunga". I don't know what that is, but I take offensive to that." ( ;
|"Get Some Shoes On It's Freezing!" "Okay....Do you see you have...?" "Never-mind."|
|On top Of The World Yes, it's Wyoming!|
|Smile Boys-not Jaxon, Dean? What a Precious Smile|
|This kid Has been a Character Since He Could Walk|
More Larin, the mother quotes:
"It's not even 6 yet and Jaxon is dreaming he is the Kung Fu Panda with noodles."
"This is Jax right here...this cartoon,Kick Buttowski, cracks me up! You gotta see it!"
"This is Jaxon doing his best impression of a kid raising his hand
during class. He starts preschool tomorrow.
The teacher is going to laugh when she sees this."
"Part II Redneck Slip and Slide:
We are trying to write the book titled, 101 Uses For A Single Sheet Of Plywood."
"Jaxon asked, "That's my dad?" I said, "Yep." Then Jaxon asked "In that giant truck?" I said "That's him." Jaxon yelled out, "Yeh!!" "That's my dad!!!" "Wahoooooo" I've never heard him cheer so loud. Cute."
|Dean Is So Sweet and Sincere|
Just think what it was like when you were five! It was so easy to wake-up and be cool.
And then, spend the rest of the day getting so smelly and dirty, that your mom thinks you're equal to the "comic boy" in the Peanuts Comic Strip, "Pigpen!"
Oh Jaxon, you were crazy when little and these past five years, you've entertained us even from a distance!
"Jaxon is in the ER because he ate some of grandma's heart medication while I was in the shower. Geez!! He is fine he is pretending he is an elephant with the barf bag." (I have to add that I'm a really bad Grandma for not completely locking-up my meds. Jaxon is a climber & no matter-what, I should've taken better care of all that, cleaners, etc. included)
"Finlee watching "Cooby Sue" (Scooby-Doo) in her new basket bed. She is so proud of it too." (What's so funny is that I have pictures of Larin doing the same thing with the same cartoons and usually asleep.)
|Finlee Loves to Read hahahha|
"Jaxon was desperate to catch a fish. He tried grapes. Poor guy didn't
catch a thing. Maybe he needs a pole, or a hook for that matter."
|Nice Way to Eat Oreos, Finlee|
|The Mother--Yep, Jaxon is Just Like Her! Larin is always the one that opts to get buried.|
|Larin's idea of Crazy Legs. Bree is Under Her Dress|
|This Could Be Jaxon in A Hat-It's Larin|
|Larin Pretending To Be Sick. Water in Wetsuit. Even out by the Highway and it truly looks like she's barfing! Sick!|
