our life the sitcom

Seriously people! Do these things happen to everyone or just us? I honestly feel like my family's life needs to be a sitcom. I need to write a book about my family, but I'd never be able to sell it as a memoir. I'd have to market it as fiction, because no one would believe the craziness that happens.

Here's a minor example that just happened tonight......

Dad was watching tv and accidently dropped the remote. That's it. He just dropped the remote from the couch to the carpeted floor. Somehow, in that brief moment, a button was pushed that changed the menu language of our tv from English to Spanish. Yes, Spanish.

And we have no idea how it happened and none of us really speak Spanish. I can read it (as in pronounce it) but comprehension is lacking. And of course all the menus are in Spanish so I have no idea how to change it back.

So now, when you press the mute button, instead of saying "MUTED" instead it reads "SILENCIO".

It makes me feel sophisticated and international.

The Team wins!

"Dave" has been loving flag football. This season he's been playing really well. He's a great quarterback with a great arm. We're all competitive, so we like going to his games and being the loud, noisy family cheering everyone on. He's been playing with some of the same kids for a while now, so we even cheer the other kids on by name (which kind of freaked them out at first :P)

Here are some pics from his most recent game...which they won!

He's #28 - the one with the dandelion hair. (Hey, it makes him really easy to spot on the field :)

So, having just ventured into the world of blogging, I was thinking, why don't we have a family blog so we can easily keep relatives and/or other random people up-to-date with our various activities.

Nothing too exciting in this post, but more to come :)
