Cason had to dress up as Teddy Roosevelt for a President's Day parade. Let me tell you something about my boy. He hates to do something that other people aren't doing (that trait should make high school fun!). It was very difficult to convince him to dress up when he wasn't sure if other friends were going to dress up. But once he got to school and saw Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Dwight Eisenhower, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, John Adams and the rest of the presidential crew, he felt better.
So here is Ruff Ryder Theodore Roosevelt in all his glory, minus the mustache because Cason said, "it makes me look too weird."
Hat and Bandana are from the party supply store.
Khakis we already had.
Boots borrowed from a friend.
Glasses are Harry Potter costume glasses from Amazon.
Shirt is a gift from Papa Chuck. Cason asked why cowboys wear such stiff shirts.

Sometimes, you just want to put on your flower girl dress from a year and a half ago, your tights that have a hole in the knee, and crash on the couch.
Ladies, am I right?

Setting:Kendall and Emily are in the car, at a very busy intersection, during the lunch rush and the roads are cut to one lane for construction.
Kendall: Mom, is this traffic?
K (speaking slowly): Mom...is...this...traffic?
K (loudly): MOM, I SAID IS THIS TRAFFIC?
E: Yes! I said yes!
K: You should say, "Yes. This is traffic."'
E: Fine. Yes. This is traffic.
K: No it isn't.
Emily bangs her head against steering wheel.
