Hilarious Things Adora and Juno Say


So, I've been trying to write down funny things that Adora and Juno say, so that I can remember them later. This is what I currently have. Enjoy the hilarity:
..........................................
The best thing Adora has ever heard me say:
"Dude, I put WAAAY too much whipped cream on your smoothie."
....................................
Me (brandishing a book): Foodie time!
Juno: "...What are you talking about?"
Me: "Oh, I meant reading time. I'm really hungry."

We all must be super tired, because we collectively laughed at this for a good five minuets.
.......................................
For some reason, Adora's new favourite joke is to answer "How I Met your Mother!" when I ask what TV show she would like to watch. She has never seen How I Met your Mother, and only knows of it because she has seen the title on Netflix, yet for some reason, she thinks this is hysterical. She says it and then laughs at herself for minuets afterwards. It's kind of deliriously funny.
...................................
Juno : "My earballs hurt"
..................
Juno has this huge stuffed bear, and today, she came in the door with it stuffed inside her sweatshirt (belly touching belly) and said, "Look! It's a baby carrier!" So sweet.
...................................
Adora: "Being a teenager is awesome. You get to go to the mall all the time, because teenagers love to spend money."
....I didn't even know how to respond to this. I think I said, "I like to spend money on you guys!" Hehe.
.................................
Adora: "Don't you have a boyfriend yet?"
Me: "Nope, not yet......I want to wait until I meet the right person."
Adora: "When you fall in love, you can't wait, or they might move away. You have to act. That's how I got with Donny."
Adora is very concerned about my lack of boyfriend. She thinks I'm going to be single for life, so she feels the need to give me advice like this XD It's kind of hilarious. 

DIY Lei with Real Flowers

We made Hawaiian leis out of real flowers (we used Rose of Sharon, and it was perfect), and it was such a fun and easy project! Here's how:
You will need a needle, thread, and about 30 blossoms.
Then, take your flowers individually and poke the needle through the center of each one, threading them onto the string. The pictures explain it better.

The finished product! A gorgeous lei.
Easy peasy. 
This was such an easy and cool project, I definitely recommend it. Especially if you're learning about Hawaii (Or if you want to go there desperately on a vacation but have no money. Or if you just watched Lilo and Stitch. Not that I would allow such things to guide our creative whimsy :p ) I want to put the rest of my pictures up from Hawaii week (and from our weeks and weeks of learning about Japan, and from learning about Germany, and all of our recent sensory adventures), but my camera is loading my pictures onto here veery slowly. So, that will all be up eventually. Stay tuned (who even says that? I do. BRINGING IT BACK, Y'ALL).

In the meantime, subscribe to my YouTube channel (a collaboration with Kristian from Five Paws Studio) to keep up with my adventures in Japan!

Or, jam with Adora and Juno's favourite music here via our summer playlist (we somehow ignore the idea of a playlist by constantly listening to the same three Sara Barellis songs on a loop. You want to hear Fairly Tale? No need to buy the CD [like anyone does that anymore, you loser], I'll just sing it for you, WORD FOR WORD, while narrating exactly what happens in the music video. Now she is Jasmine. Now the director is angry. I can save you pain and money. You're welcome).

I love her, by the way. Sara is amazing. Which is good, because her songs are currently the soundtrack of our lives.
