Friday's Show and Tell

Kelli over at" There is No Place Like Home", is the host of Friday Show and Tell. She explains it this way:"Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!"

Shane striking a pose!
Here are my two precious sons! I am missing these two guys so much while they are away with friends on vacation!
Today for my Show and Tell, I thought I would show you some things you may find around your home if you have a nine year old little boy!
A "LINE" of thread taped to the TV stand and to the arm of an easy chair! All so the Star Wars figures can get where they need to go!
You may find "good" fighting "evil" in your foyer!

Or you may just need to ....
Beware of Storm Troopers!!

Shane was in Mexico last week and in Orlando all this week. I have missed walking through the house and finding his men and traps everywhere! Josh used to do the same thing at this age.

Great Show & Tell...especially since we don't have any little boys around to leave all those toys :)

Connie said...

Enjoyed your Show & Tell. Looks like your son has a good imagination. Very handsome young men.

Take care,

Tiany said...

Ha Ha , I loved this!! Felt like my home. I know you know that I can relate!

Your boys are so very handsome, they look like such good guys too! You are blessed!

Momma Roar said...

We are just hitting that stage - too cute!

Missy said...

I know he didn't leave those like that when he left. You have too much time on your hands, mom. You can make Grace some banana pudding. LOL.

I have finally added a post to my blog. No time with Grace, school and work.

Hope to see you soon.

Lallee said...

LOL How sweet! My sons (grown now) were huge Star Wars fans. The figures were everywhere at our house, too. One son has not forgiven me for getting rid of the figures.

Haus Frau said...

How fun to have *zip lines* in your home! This gave me a chuckle.

I know a family of 5 boys and oh my goodness, their antics are just belly-busting fun.

On another note..could you share more about your son's college change mid-summer? Thanks. You can reach me at lulashardt@yahoo.com if you like.

Daughter of the King said...

Barbara H. said...

What great pictures! I wish I had taken some like that when my boys were younger -- they had scenarios like that all around, too.

Sweet Georgia Peach said...

Sharon said...

I never had a little boy but I have three brothers and I remember my mom always picking up after them. ;-)

You have very nice looking sons.

Teeny Tiny cabin said...

My grandson does the same thing with his action toys! It always cause me to chuckle and is a precious memory!
Blessings to You! Claudia O.

Mishel said...

This *totally* made me smile! Oh yeah--I remember those days! Only it was GI Joe's instead. : )

Ashley said...

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

You have some fine looking sons and I know you must be very proud of them along with your husband. The pictures of the nine year old brought back many memeories to me. With four boys in the house there was always something wonderful going on. I miss those times sometimes. connie

Lallee said...

I had to come back and say thank you for your kind comment on my grandfather Pop post. You are too kind! I see you live in Florida, too. Waving to wherever you are from the west coast ;-)

Warmly,
Lallee

Kim said...

Too funny! I find these things all around my house too. Thank you for sharing.

HsKubes said...

GLAD TO HAVE YOU COME BY MY BLOG. I AN KRISTI'S DAD. THE ONE UNDER THE COW. COW WAS PLASTIC AND THEREE SO THAT CHILDREN COULD MILK ONE WITHOUT TOUCHING A REAL ONE.

Ruth said...

LOL! Looks like my house. You never know what is going to be where!!

justabeachkat said...

Oh this brings back memories of when my son was little. Now his children do the same thing. Cute as long as I don't have to be the one picking them all up!

Hugs!
Kat

serendip said...

Cute boys and cute imagination.

Gina E. said...

Aren't the boys afraid their toys will get lost or trodden on and broken,if they leave them lying around? Even worse, a cat like ours would take these small objects and hide them under a rug!!

~Ginger said...

With all girls we never had those toys, but I bet my husband would love to come and play!

cassie said...

Precious! It must be tough being without your guys...thanks for sharing this small part of them with us!

Jennifer said...

your show and tell just gave me a great laugh!

when I was younger, my brother and I used to stay with my cousin during the summers. While my brother and cousin would play with GI Joes, I would make sure that Barbie could also climb the ropes and drive the tanks as well.

by the way, you have two most-handsome sons! What a blessed mother you are!

Julie's Jewels said...

I'm sure you are missing those boys something awful!! I pray you all survive the separation anxiety. I miss talking to you and pray all is well with you!!

luvvom said...

You sound lonely for your children!....who are very good looking I must say...congrats! You're in my prayers!

groovyoldlady said...

That's a sweet S&T. Now that Bonehead is grown up, I miss the domino walls and the Matchbox Cars and the ENDLESS path of Legos.
