Fly On The Wall With The Elf Lord

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings,. hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, four brave bloggers are inviting you into their homes for a peek of what goes on behind closed doors.

     At the Doyle house, we're gearing up for fall festivities. I have a birthday coming up next month---the BIG 60! Yikes! But I plan on celebrating it like I'm still 30. I also love Halloween! Candy corn is my jam, so you can bet I'm stocking up on it right now. November brings my favorite holiday of all---THANKSGIVING. I'm blessed to have all my kids and grandkids living nearby, so the holiday is always a beautiful, sentimental time for me. Honestly, it's having grandchildren that make the holidays even more special. I love my girls and spend most weekends with them. Recently, my oldest granddaughter took an interest in the Titanic. We watched the movie together and then I gave her the Heart Of The Ocean necklace. Her eyes LIT UP! My kids and my grandkids are my life, so you can understand why I am so EXCITED for the holidays to get here!!

     In the meantime, I'm still taking note of the odd bits of conversation that go on around here with the hubs and the kids when they come over.. And I'm totally sure that nosy fly on the wall has been entertained by what he has heard around here.....

"You look really tired today. You have bags under your eyes"
"Yeah, I didn't sleep well last night."
"Oh, so that's why United Airlines called---they want their bags back."

"I'll be happier at 75 because by then I will have a hip replacement, knee replacement, and no more pain."
"Too bad they can't give you a memory replacement."

"How about we try the Nine Dragons restaurant?"
"Which one is that?"
"The place with the red dragon on the roof."
"Only one? No thanks."
"That's a bad omen. It means eight of them are already dead."

"Oh my God, your fart is smelling up the whole room!"
"Yes, I know because I can't stop laughing!!"
"If that's what real laughing gas is, then I don't want any the next time I go to the dentist."

"Daddy, did you have a bad day at work?"
"Yeah, actually, I did. My boss bitched at me plus I forgot to bring my lunch. I also cut my finger on a mower blade. It really hurt."
"Awww poor guy. I guess you should have called the WHAAAAambulance."

"You always want more pugs. I'm going to refer to you as the Pug Queen from now on."
"Oh yeah? Since you're so interested in collecting Christmas elves, does that make you an Elf Lord?"

"What's your mom doing?"
"She's online buying illegal exotic pets."
"Oh, okay....wait, WHAT?"

"Why are all the photos on your phone so tiny?"
"Because everything on me is tiny."
"Well, I know one thing for sure thing that's tiny...."
"That's NOT funny."

     Maybe Elf Lord is a bit insecure, but you know what they say.....the bigger the elf, the bigger the.........

  1. Your grand babies are adorable. And the fun is just beginning, right? Happy Birthday soon.....anyone planning anything special for you? You are so blessed to live near your family -- I'm envious!

    1. I do feel blessed. And yes, my husband is throwing a party for me with friends and family. I can't wait!!

  2. I love that your family is so close, loving and fun filled. You and your hub are adorable! Beautiful grands and who wouldn't be happy with a house full of fur babies?

  3. Hahaha! What would we do without our husbands to make fun of? Love your sassy family.

  4. Lucky you having your grown kids all nearby. I'm hoping to have the whole family here for Thanksgiving too. Also hoping to get my younger son to fly, not drive the 8 hours that time of year.

    1. Oh yes---I hope he does fly. 8 hours driving in winter weather is just too much!

  5. The best--the VERY best thing about life is having your grown kids and grand-kids close! And it's so fun when those grands start seeking you out for conversation and movies!
    I always enjoy my visits with the Pug Queen and the Elf Lord!

    1. I agree---my kids and grandkids are my heart. Glad you like visiting the Pug Queen and Elf Lord!

  6. Such a wonderful Fly on the Wall, Marcia. Your granddaughter is gorgeous. What a lovely gift you've given her. She'll keep that forever and the memory of watching the movie together is precious. Now, for the Elf Lord...LOL. Love the pics!!

    1. I have a ridiculous amount of family photos--some normal but most are silly. Always perfect for these FOTW posts.

  7. I can't believe you're going to be 60! That means I was entering high school as you entered first grade! I'm going to try to wipe that thought from my mind now. Thanks for always sharing your funny family and your adorable grandkids with the rest of us. I'll see you on FB!
