a simple life....

As you know.....I had a whirlwind weekend.
I was a jet-setter....
flying across the country......

errr.........
not in first class though......i was in the back of the plane.....
the very last row....with two children....
and i hate to say it....but i hate flying with children.....
because all i want to do is catch up on my latest people magazine
reading about Michael's funeral ......and the latest on Jon and Kate...
but ...
i can't....
because i have kids.......
and I'm trying to get them to sit quietly and watch their dvd...
without kicking the man's chair in front of us ...
which is cranked ALL the way back ....so of COURSE my children want
to KICK it.
whew....now that i got that off my chest.....



I knew you wanted to see some cute pics of the children before i got to your EYE CANDY.....right?!

By the way......notice the smiles........

I paid them each $5 to pose for me so that i could have a post of cute pics for you.....




and now ...just what you have been waiting for.......
a little eye candy....
JUST FOR YOU!
{feel free to ENLARGE the images}
















you know how much i love you girls.......
and not everybody has the same taste in candy as i do.....
xo

the woman with the curlers and the cigarette is cracking me up!

The Hills said...

I hated flying with my 2 yr old & 7 month old. And to think they still won't be easy at your kid's ages makes me sad! But it is what it is!

Love the photos you took of those 2!! Oh & I'm glad you got your candy fix ;)

Trish said...

I'm still laughing here!! Great pics. I'm so glad to know someone else pays their kids to do stuff like pose for pictures ;)

Victoria@WhimsybyVictoria said...

Kasey, you so make me laugh! I love reading your posts. Thanks for always adding a smile to my day!! Glad you had such a great time. I see Lolas hair is getting longer and it looks so good on her!

Hugs friend,
~Victoria~

Alicia said...

See I told you this would happen but hey who cares??? The kids are as wonderful as you're flight may have been nutsy. Cross country flights with minis are nuts. Hailey was 4 Grant was 7 & every half hour...how much longer. By the way the guy with his chair all the way back...let them kick. I hate when people do that knowing how little room we have nowadays.
Peace & ice cream.

Kasey said...

Hilarious!

Jeanneoli said...

I am dying at the old lady smoking with curlers in her hair. I am never moving to Florida!!! That is the best.

marilyn said...

hysterical! love your little blonde cuties...hope they don't unravel you before you're done with unravelling. see you on flicker.

The Little Red Shop said...

What a riot! She looks quite a bit like a senior lady I saw on the beach on Crete yearrrs ago...one of the guys from my group turned, saw her, bugged out his eyes and said, "Oh no...why did grandma have to go and get buck near us???" That's right, a completely buff golden oldie...just a few feet away...eyes toward the sky!

Oh boy! Great pictures, Kasey! I hope you hadn't had too much iced tea before catching a glimpse of her!

PamperingBeki said...

Oh girl, there is not much worse in life than flying with kids.

I used to be a flight attendant and I was always EXTRA nice to parents with little kids because I could only imagine how stressful it was.

Next time for eye candy, can you post my boyfriend Matthew again?
