We are big Monty Python fans, and the kids are totally into it now, too. 

After Monty, we have given them a love for Mel Brooks.  This weekend, we finally found 'History of the World, Part I' on dvd.  I forgot how funny it was and we all laughed together. 

Now, Russell is here and they are all watching the movie together, and laughing their butts off.

Oh my... I tell you, there is nothing better than listening to a room full of kids laughing!

I did my Enbrel shot today.  And, I had an audience.  Yep, not everyone can go to their friends house and watch their mom do a shot in her thigh!  So, Russ and Pumpkin decided to watch.  Russ was amazed. 

Yep, that's me... amazing!  LOL  I hope it starts to work fast!  Pray for me!  And, I hope I don't get sick again!!!  Keeping the old fingers crossed here!

My dad made a wonderful homemade chicken soup for dinner.  A quick easy recipe.  Purdue already been roasted chicken cut up, carrots, celery, fresh cut, and added into 2 large cans of broth.  A good simmering for about an hour and half, add the egg noodles in the last 8 minutes, serve with fresh bread.  Yummy.

It was rainy and 45 degrees today.  Just nasty.  My bones ached, so the chicken soup was heaven.

The kids keep devolving into a melee involving pillow fighting, head slaps and tickling.  Hubby has just threatened to stuff Russ and Pumpkin inside Fuzzy and then will beat them all at once.  This resulted in more uproarious laughter at the thought!

They are now hysterical laughing at the 'Jews in Space' number at the end... lol

be well,

ps... here is more Monty Python...

Your house sounds like the place to be...you can't beat laughter like that!!!  I loved "History of the World"!!  I think that is one of the funniest movies ~ Mel Brooks is great.  Keeping my fingers crossed & sending some Prayers up that your shot works and you don't get sick.  I think I could handle that recipe, it sounds really good too (and easy!!!).  Enjoy the laughter.  :)

omg those movies are so funny...when they catapult the cow!My SIL is diabetic and shoots up while casually conversing at the dinner table......I'm off to bed but I saw your name on the screen and I knew I would get a smile from you to take with me to my pillow!

I used to inject my diabetic Labrador ever day. Must say I never quite got used to it. Can't imagine how you do it to yourself!! Hope it works.

That kitten picture is hysterical!!!!

I remember laughing til I cried at The History of the World.  Soooo funny!  Love Monty Python as well.

chat2missie said...

I was never a fan of Monty Python.  My husband and kids are though.  Guess I'm just a party pooper sometimes. LOL  Enjoy what's left of the week.

You have me in the giggles this morning. I have taken the day off.....Whew...is all I can say. The hubby & I are getting ready to watch a movie....He says watch "It's a Mad Mad World" I bet the kids would get a kick out of that...the older version or the newer...I personally like the older better myself.

Hope & good wishes to you and yours.

I just love the way you enjoy your family.   Best wishes to you all.

Sending good thoughts for success with the Enbrel.  What a cute lolcat at the beginning.  It sounds like the kids had themselves a ball. :)  There are some "good" old comedies out there-love Mel Brooks!
                                         Happy Wednesday,  Leigh

I love Monty Python!  That first lolcat photo cracked me up when I saw it yesterday, and I was going to showcase it in my journal, but you beat me to it.  I hope your meds don't make you sick.  Enjoy the laughter.

Sending you prayers....


jmoqueen said...

The knights who say ni ~ love it :o)  Have you ever seen the Holy Grail performed in Lego?  You should it's very funny!!  Hope the injection works xx



ekgillen said...

Our family would totally fit in at your house...Monty Python & Mel Brooks!!! :)

gdireneoe said...

AHAHAHAHA!  Oh m'gosh...we LOVE Monty too.  Bring outchya daid...but'e ain't dead yet...  Oh, and I keep meaning to tell you, and keep forgetting...your cat captions just crack me up.  We have a new-ish addition here (since November).  My youngest was given a kitten for her birthday.  We are an "outside pets" family (of necessity), but this little girlie was too young to have left her mommy, so she's been given a LOT of inside time.  She runs the roost...including Daddy when he stops by (he never knew he'd be a sucker for a cat!)  Anyway, we do kitty captions all the time now, because she has so much personality.  Our latest giggle, from a look she gave my son is...Don't touch me...just LOOK at me (said with as much dripping chic kitty disdain as one could imagine/muster, as she strolls)  Hugs and prayers for your hurts. ;)  C.

Homemade chicken soup sounds so good right about now! I think it's the added ingredient of love!  You're right, nothing beats the sound of children laughing!

We all love Monty Python.  I'm not sure if my kids have seen any Mel Brooks.  No, Becky my oldest has.  We rented them a while ago.  You are such a cool mom.  I used a Purdue seasoned chicken in soup this week.  I make it the same as your dad does.  Have a good weekend.  HUGS Chris
