Understanding the Monkey Bunch

The other day our good friends Scott and Jodi called and asked Emma what she was doing. She said she was "playing with her water babies." She then gave the phone to Rob and Scott asked what he was doing and Rob told him that he was "cutting the Monkey's." Scott had to admit that he was confused by this time and said, "I can't understand you guys."

So to help all confused parties, Here are the Water Babies:
Emma made these water balloons and then made them into a family and gave them names and everything. There used to be four, but she popped 'Sam' and then Max popped one of the others and one of her friends threw one of them today, so now there is only one baby left.

Rob was cutting the boys' hair that day that he was "cutting the monkey's." You can't really tell in this picture that their hair is cut, but it's a cute picture anyways.

And one other thing- if you ever hear us saying "stop Mooking me!" You have to know that Mooking is never a good thing. It means you are in my personal bubble way too much! Scott and Jodi have this phrase down and use it quite frequently with the dear little mooking king -Joseph.

Now you are prepared to understand us!


And by the way- I went and saw Mama Mia. Loved it! It was just light and fun. If you want serious, great singing or a great story this is not the movie for you, but if you want to be entertained and love a little Abba, go see it! I had to buy the CD, because I loved the singing- except Pierce Brosnan's which I still giggle at!

I soooo agree about the pierce brosnan thing - we had seen mamma mia in live form so i bought that sound track many moons ago, couldn't see plunking down more moolah for this one - but the movie was so fun!

I love the "stop mooking at me"!!! classic!

You'll have to ask mom where she got "mooking" from. I think it started with Tim. Cindy

Sorry, Cindy. Mooking is straight from our family. Rob came up with it when we were in a tent with the rest of his brothers and sisters and I was snuggling and it was too hot. He didn't want to offend me, but wanted to tell me nicely to go to the other side of the sleeping bag. That's what he came up with.

Mooch- to loiter, loaf or rove about (slang) to skulk or sneak. From Webster unabridged dictrionary. when refering to another person it means someone who sneaks into your personal space. Glad to see that your famiy has a useful and colorful vocabulary. Always glad to see the monkey's and their sister in pictures too. Mom

Yes, but mooch is a lot different then Mooking, Mom!
