Like Father, Like Son

After a very long week - lots of time at work; sick kids, sick parents, spending Sunday morning in the ditch waiting for a tow truck, etc, etc, etc - it was a great time watching the Vikings-Saints game. Tyler has become very interested in football. And I realized he mimics everything Jon does. And Jon is the MOST ANIMATED football player! He rolls his pants legs, unrolls them, stands up, paces, lays flat on the floor - face up then face down - stands in the kitchen, watches from around the corner, etc. And Tyler does everything he does (you can see the legs of his long underwear rolled up). And this wasn't even a Packer game!! I only wish I would have gotten more pictures.

In the end, they danced & cheered. It was a great game and we enjoyed it. Sorry to all our Viking friends & family. It was just too sweet.

Brett Favre is Missing!

Here is what I think is a hilarious true story...
The scene is Monday night and Tyler & Hannah come running out the bedroom...
Tyler: (in a super excited voice & jumping up & down) Brett Favre is missing!
Me: I'm sure he's not missing, Tyler.
Tyler: Hannah told me so!!!
Hannah, For real Mom! I heard it on the radio at grandma's! It's for real! (burst into tears) Why don't you believe me!
Tyler: Yeah mom! He's missing! YES!!! (in a sing-song voice) Now the Vikings lose! Now the Vikings lose!
They would not give it up so I called the place of the source...grandma. Iasked her for an explanation...
Me: Mom, did your radio tell Hannah that Brett Favre is missing?
Mom: What? No. Wait! (Bursts out laughing) K99 at noon had someone call in and reported Brett Favre missing. There is an number to call if you find him...

He has four legs, brown fur and answers to the name Brett Favre.

Someone lost their dog named Brett Favre! And the radio thought it was funny and kept saying, "Folks, Brett Favre is missing"

So, Hannah was kind of right, she knew what she heard, she just didn't get the full story. So Tyler was disappointed and life went on. But I thought it was hilarious - my kids crack me up! Oh yeah, Brett Favre is still missing.
