"I'll Take Weekend for $1000, Alex"

A: What you eat when you're stuck indoors for the third weekend in a row, thanks to inclement weather.

Q: What are brownies, muffins, banana bread and scones?

Because, frankly, focusing excessive boy energy on this:



is better than giving them free reign:




But I'm not taking any responsibility for not fitting into my shorts if spring and/or summer ever does decide to arrive.

You know who's to blame!

Arte those towels on their heads?!

I'm so sorry about the snow...but the baked goods sound yummy!

Better you than me...

"excessive boy energy' Whew! I know what you mean there...I hope for YOUR sake that spring does decide to roll around soon! And scones...my mouth is watering, Yum! I would love to know how to make my own. i always have to rely on Atlanta Bread Co. or Starbucks for a great scone.

...that would be their pants on their heads, and yes, their shirts on their legs. What? You don't think that's hysterically funny? :)

Mary Beth said...

How did you keep the camera steady enough to take the picture? That is such a riot!

dkuroiwa said...

According to my boys (ages 10 and 5 1/2), the only thing funnier would be underwear on their heads...mom and daddy's underwear on their heads would make them snort milk out their noses!!!
If I were eating all that good yummy stuff, I'd weigh 500 pounds!!! But of course, with 2 boys to chase after.....

May clear skies and nice weather be what you wake up to tomorrow!!!

Becky said...

TOO CUTE!!!! I remember those days.

But wait - teenagers still make snacks when they are bored. I found the remnants of a midnight green jello making safari in my kitchen this morning. And a 6'3" 195 pound 18 year old walked through here wrapped in a towel a minute ago looking for a work shirt. Wasn't quite as cute.

Ah, well.

Amber said...

Looking at those scrawyn little frames, I would say you don't have much to worry about. :-)

Funny!

Kyla said...

Pants on the head, shirts on the bottom. Looks about right to me. LOL.

Dawn said...

I was laughing when I saw that picture. My son does things like that. With two boys, I'm sure things get even more silly since they have each other as an audience. All the baking sounds delicious.

Cheri said...

Pants for hats! The people have spoken.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

You've definitely started a dangerous practice. I can't buy enough butter, flour, chocolate chips, and Baker's chocolate for the cookies and brownies Danger Boy turns out.

I hope he marries a woman with a good metabolism one day!

Spring is bound to arrive sooner or later!

Mrs. Annie said...

It could have been worse!

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Ha ha ha. Boys are so weird!

katiez said...

You have my deepest sympathy - stuck indoors with 2 lively lads for the 3rd weekend... I only ever had to deal with one...
Good luck on the baked goods!

painted maypole said...

creative dressing! love it!

Rima said...

Oh, ya. You definitely had no other choice but baking! We had a few flakes here today, but thankfully nothing stuck. Flippin' "spring."

MamaGeek said...

Spring, WHERE ARE YOU? Look what you're doing to these boys - forcing them to be all creative like this! :)

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

My boys baked this weekend too, birthday cake;)
Looks like fun, in spite of the yucky weather.
Have a fabulous week!

Stomper Girl said...

I've got 2 boys with lots of boy energy! I sympathise! And I DO think the pants on head, shirts on their bottoms is hysterically funny. I'm still chuckling at them. Frame that photo immediately, I say!

Cathy said...

Look at that gooey, chocolaty goodness... yum...

Valarie said...

LOL! That's really all I have to say about that. :)

kimmy said...

YUMMY!!! I would have done the same thing. My kids and I love to bake and I love the way it makes the house smell!

Chantal said...

Too cute. I almost wrote a post about spring having finally arrived then I thought I might jinx myself. I hope the weather perks up your way soon.

Not Your Regular Mini Van Mom said...

Brownies...mmmmmmmmm...I wished you lived closer, I would have come over for coffee and snacks LOL

Mrs. G. said...

That second photo is a riot. How do you keep a straight face?

CC said...

thanks to inclement weather almost every weekend, I'm sure I won't fit into anything this summer!

Candy said...

You ought to be able to bottle all that cuteness and make a gazillion dollars.

Motherhood for Dummies said...

are they wearing sweat shirts as pants? Ha ha love it!

Lisa said...

Better towels on their head than dirty underwear.

Gosh our boys would get along very well together! Yours are utterly adoreable!

Kathryn said...

Flipping crappy weather! Where is spring?????

Anna-borderline-bonkers-banana :) said...

Oooiee, snow again, gosh you need a break!!!
Glad you are surviving, but man alive, you need spring!

Julie Pippert said...

We baked cookies all afternoon on Saturday! Thank goodness for roomy maternity clothes. ;)

I completely understand your predicament!

They are cute, though.

Cooking is good for them!

the dragonfly said...

Your boys are hysterical. :) And also adorable.
