Sometimes living life in a big family does feel like a three-ring circus, but that's my life, and, all-in-all, I LOVE IT!

Contrasting Male And Female Responses

Sometimes I am at a loss to understand the male sense of humor:

While singing Happy Birthday to Ray (way back in March ~ that's how behind I am in posting!), Ray's brother Donald was being, well, he was being Donald, and he was singing very loud, and very off-key, and out of sync with everyone else.

Jayden found this very amusing and seemed pleased with Uncle Donald's antics while Mia seemed somewhat confused and...

...she was anything BUT pleased and amused, and look at Sophie, she looks as if she is thinking, "What is going on here?  I don't think I like this very much", and in fact, she was so perturbed that she started crying after this photo was taken:

(I love how Mia is covering her ears!)

The guys all thought it was just the funniest thing, contrast that with the women who were all saying, "Stop now!  Stop it!"


  1. She's a delicate little girl...sweet as can be.
    I love the photos; they speak volumes.
    Hugs to sweet Mia...and to Jayden, too. He seems to be having a very large time! :))

  2. Hi Eileen - too funny. ANd yes, men and women find different things funny, especially when they themselves believe they are being funny and in fact they are being anything but! :-) Great pics
    Love to you and thanks for your support and understanding of things on my end, sigh
    Love to you always

  3. Men and women are certainly different, and how funny that you were actually able to capture it so well on camera! I especially like the look on little Sophie's face. So that was March...your babies have probably really changed even since then. I'm hoping you will show more pictures. But I'll be patient :)
