Hidden Talents…….

We celebrated our sister “Tinker Bells” birthday……What started out as a celebration of the day she was born……….well…….in typical Hazard Family fashion became a little bit unusual……….

“Muscle Man” was “bribed into” showing off his latest P90X yoga position………..

Which therefore challenged several of our competitive sides, to see if we too could achieve this difficult position….

Please note that we could…but only for approximately .0005 of a second (hence the blurry photo) ….. while he could have sat there upside down, with nothing on the floor but his hands…supporting the weight of his curled upside down body……..for an unlimited amount of time.
Then “Miss Dreamer” casually began her crab like crawl across the floor…..effortlessly may I add………….nothing touching the floor here but her hands…..we sorta just gawked as this was one of her many expressionless…..effortless…….poses…….we signed her up for “cirque du soleil” the next day…….if that doesn’t work we are going to start booking her at County Fairs.

Please note her outfit underneath her “party” dress which she proudly kept showing as a “good idea” she had come up with so that when she left the party….wham….off with the party dress and you were ready to play outside! Great idea : )
Miss Stash Away was not going to be upstaged by her sister and proceeded to show us how she could touch her head with her foot……quietly just walked in the room after all the “petty tricks” were done, knowing how to wait for the right moment…..get the crowd just right and Wah Lah……..met with many Oohs and Aahs……..

So impressive that two camo clad mommies sorta thought they could do it too……just like they could when they were younger…….and truly we thought we were pretty close……

It seemed like our feet were touching our heads until “Baby Brother Brat” took a photo to humiliate us and show us our lack of flexiblity……by the way….we don’t always wear camo…………I mean, not to church……. and I don’t see a Circus or even County Fair option in our future……

It just wouldn’t stop……….

We really can’t help it…..

We are pitiful…….desperate to out-stage one another……being in a family of seven children was tough! That’s my excuse anyways and I’m sticking to it!

It reminded me of a “family cruise” I took when my babies were younger………

The children on the ship got together to perform a “talent contest” and my son “Challenger” was slotted to perform…..

I waited with proud expectation as children performed sweet “homemade” poems……Karaoke versions of their favorite songs……..

And a moving “Pledge of Allegiance”, led by a sweet young boy, was the intro to my sons talent……

I couldn’t stand it and had my camera ready ………..

Then he walked up proudly to the front of the ships stage………

Lifted his shirt…….

Flipped his eyelids…….

And began rolling his belly to a drumroll……..

All at the same time may I say………

Yep….we got it bad……….

And once the crowd stopped laughing

Well they couldn’t stop clapping….. and I knew…….

Dang…….we are talented!

One of these days I will show you all how I can touch my nose with my tongue!

But that would be rude and this blog is about Tinker Bells Birthday!

; )

Happy Birthday Tinker Bell!

Love,

Me

    Did your cousin (the one with the BMV) ever show you that she could put her whole fist in her mouth?
