Bowing to the Bow Tie

The boys are either bow tie converts or they're really into the odd knots they can find on the internet.

Ringo appears to be a convert. Not only did he learn to tie it for that Prom, but a couple boys at the Prom had bow ties and needed them re-tied. So he was the official bow tier of anyone in need.

Remember the bright colored shirts Bones insisted he had to have? Evidently they fit every male in this family, all just a bit different. Bones doesn't fill it out. The difference between age 14 and 18.

At the beginning of this year, they instituted a couple new policies at their school. One of them was when they had Mass, the boys were to wear ties.

Here is what Ringo is wearing... Bones' BRIGHT Red shirt and his Union Jack bow tie. Tomorrow, Mr. T is wearing a bright teal shirt with an orange tie.

Somehow, I don't think this is what their school was expecting when they came up with this new policy...

He thinks this outfit would be perfect with white dress shoes. I think I'm glad we don't have any in the house.

With this kind of JOY in your house, why do you have any problem sleeping at night. You are so blessed.

I think it's all the bright colors swirling around this house. That and the sparkly personalities. Good grief. It's like living in one of Disney's Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

He looks fantastic in that picture. He has grown so much from that little boy pointing to the sky and saying 'Bird'. I wish you had one of Mr. T... I would love to see those bright colors together! I think Bones is rubbing off on them!

I just love your family! Would love to be a fly on the wall to watch these moments. Is that a little creepy???

Peggy- Nah, they're funny kids. My Dad said he wondered if reading me, to people not knowing me, was like reading the cartoon section of the newspaper. They keep me entertained. We have our tough times too, though. I don't put them up, since this is my happy place.

One day, I'm going to download all this stuff and have someone put it in a book so they can have it. I need to start downloading from my old blog... I need to sift through the stories I'd want to keep for them. It's 9 years of keeping stories on them...

At the very least, do a backup soon so you have a copy. LOL Always have copies if you want to save things. No copies means it could all vanish in a puff of smoke and be gone.

Your boys make me laugh. So different from my kids. They are hilarious.

Must have a White Belt to go with the White Shoes!! Then we'll really be on our way back to the Carter era...
