Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #14 
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a comment here before 1/19/07.

This week's photo challenge is "Elmo!".

Elmo_sm The inspiration for this week's FotoFun challenge comes from Johnny's blog

If you have kids, chances are really good that you have Elmo somewhere in your house.  In our house, he's everywhere because Maddy loves him with all of her heart and soul.  We indulge her cute obsession whenever we can.  We only buy Pampers diapers because Maddy notices at every single diaper change that he's on every diaper.  The loveable red monster is everywhere else in our house too!  We've got Elmo sippy cups and Elmo bibs and Elmo books and an Elmo potty seat.  We have at least four furry Elmo dolls including one that talks and one that she can take a bath with.  We have Elmo slippers (Zoe slippers for Gwen). Then there's the half dozen Elmo DVD's which includes our all-time favorite:  Elmo In Grouchland (highly recommended!).  Yesterday, we bought Maddy a pair of super awesome Elmo shoes that light up when she walks.  She loved them so much that she wanted to sleep in them but we do have to draw the line somewhere.  ;)

Here's something cool I found on Jeff's Place:

Donkey awe

Donkey_aweWe visited Happy Hollow yesterday and saw the usual assortment of animals they have there but this one really caught the attention of the girls. 

I guess they've never seen a donkey before?  Or maybe just not this close up?  They must have thought it was a huge dog!

Pp_in_purse After taking a few minutes to tend to laundry, I came back into the playroom and found that Gwen had removed her pants and diaper and was sitting on her new purse like she was about to use it for a toilet!

"We don't pee-pee in our purse!", I said as I scooped her up in my arms and carted her off to the bedroom to replace the diaper.  When I heard those words with my own ears, it was like someone else said them and it just cracked me up and I laughed through the whole diaper change.  That's got to be the silliest thing I've ever said!

After the diaper was safely in place, Gwenny was invited to help recreate the purse-sitting moment for the camera.  My little goof-ball was happy to oblige!

This week's photo challenge is "Collections".

Teapots You already know that I collect kitty cat ornaments but here's some of my husband's teapot collection.  He has about a dozen and he uses most of them (except the funky one pictured in the upper left corner -- since it's only decorative).

When people collect things, it makes them interesting.  It also makes them easy to shop for!  My cousin collects polar bear figurines.  My other cousin collects small clowns.  I think everyone collects something.

What do you collect?
