Where's the superhero fashion police when we need them?

Has it really been a week since I've posted?


Last week, I felt absolutely bombarded from all directions. I had school events, baseball, cub scouts, tae kwan do, ballet, book club, doctor's appointments, carpools, grocery shopping, errands, and much, much more.

All on a week that I was forbidden from eating any dessert.

It's no wonder something had to give, right? That something, unfortunately, was this little blog. I didn't get to read your blogs and I definitely was not writing here.

My apologies to the one person who actually reads this drivel every day. (Hi, Oma!)

But I feel a little more on my feet this week, somehow dropped a few pounds (thanks to the self-imposed Lent), and am feeling ready to conquer life once again.

But before I fill you in on the fantabulous events of our ever-exciting lives, I must leave you with a little something special that makes me fall over with fits of giggles every time I see it.

But first, please go back and take a look at this.

Well, it has recently made a comeback into our lives, and I must say, the growth Spiderman has occurred since May of 2008 is remarkable, as evidenced by the disturbingly tight extra form-fitting spidey suit.

Spidey was unable to button the suit in the back this year. I am thinking that is a good indication that it is BEYOND fit to wear.

Spidey would tell you differently.

In fact, if I were to allow it, this suit would be seen by grocery store clerks and the good people of Missouri everywhere.

Lucky for all of them, I do not allow it.

Because what you cannot see in these pictures is the suit from the back. And on the back? There is definitely a lot of crack going on. And crack is always going to be VERY BAD in a Spidey suit.

It's true what they say: Crack is whack.

Spidey is matched only in fierceness by Super Girl and her scary jack-o-lantern teeth.

These are two tough peeps that should never be crossed.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

So stay tuned for the exciting events of our weekend, tales from the Pinewood Derby, and maybe (if you're lucky) a recipe to fatten you all up.

Because I really haven't done that in a while and I'd say it's definitely time.

LOL! He's going to love seeing this pictures in a couple of years. Thanks for saving us from the crack.

I have some similar pictures of Jaxon in his Spiderman suit. It too is WAY to small and WAY to tight.

I plan to use them as blackmail when he is 16.

jenjen said...

Cute superhero pics! And I like the Jack o Lantern teeth!

Glad your week isn't as crazy this week. I hate it when things seem out of control (which happens a lot it seems!)

I think the term is "nutters" when they're that tight...please destroy this evidence before he hits puberty.

That was hilarious and Adorable!!!!

Christie in Dallas, TX said...

HA! I want to be at his rehearsal dinner when that Spidey picture pops up on the slide show! Hope things settle down for you this week! Can't wait for that fattening recipe...

Okay... I finally have to come out of my shell and comment! I've been reading your blog for a quite a while now, and it's one of the funniest thing ever. This time, I laughed so hard out loud, that my husband asked what on earth am I laughing at. I'm a dear friend of Robyn Gadd's, so that's how I wondered my way over to this site.
Thank you for sharing bits and pieces of your fun life with all of us. And sharing your witty sarcastic humor. It just gets better and better..!!

Did you forget to post this in October? Whenever, whatever...Spiderman costumes that don't quite fit right are scary!

Misty said...

these are so adorable! I don't think that spiderman suit could be any smaller!

Annemarie said...

I feel your pain. We have a storm trooper costume that needs to be burned before EVER seeing the light of day again (or plastered on to a 10 year old body).

This is great blackmail.

Ilene said...

Ah, those pictures will some day be immortalized in a wedding video.

Way to go.

Bridget said...

Chase cracks me up. My boys would SO, SO love him.

calibosmom said...

That suit will come back to haunt him. I love his little belly sticking out. I can see this picture showing up in a senior year video roast.

I'm ready for dessert!!!

Chatter said...

I love children in costumes. Too much fun! But thanks for sparing us the crack photo. I am sure Chase is even more thankful :)

We've missed you.

Lauren in GA said...

Yay, yay, yay...A forthcoming recipe!!

I am sure, "the good people of Missouri" thank you for keeping Spidey all to yourself. You slay me..."Crack is whack." I love it.

The good people of Georgia would thank me because I can't seem to *ahem* find Brian's Batman pajamas that he wore like a uniform for 3 years. They were way too small. Batman doesn't look proper in booty shorts.

Kimberly said...

Makes me think I really need to post pictures of Blake in his Spidey suit...he wears it EVERYDAY! Cute pics and glad you're back!

TravelinOma said...

Obviously I am not the only one who reads this drivel. But I might be the only one who starts saying, "Where's Stie? Is she OK? Did she get kidnapped by the UPS guy?"

Diane said...

I've been a little out of sorts myself. Glad you're up and running again. I miss you when you're gone. There's never a dull moment in your house is there?!

Andy said...

And you made fun of the Anderson kids?


Alternate title for today's post: "Our kids' new church clothes"

gab said...

Luke says, "That costume looks kinda weird." But he doesn't exactly know why...

queenieweenie said...

I love that's it's crotching him---BAD.

shilo duke said...

The pictures are funny, but seeing the action play out in front of my eyes as it was being photographed was even funnier...almost painfully so. Chase and Hannah had a blast. I got a huge kick out of the unzipped, holey, wedgie action that was happening behind the scenes of the spidey suit! :)

Joy & Casey said...

You could always mail the Spidey Suit to Sawyer...he's sorta deprived! :)
Just kidding. Funny post. Have a great day Christie!!! Let's do lunch-in Utah-soon.

momy4him said...

that spidey suit is a "crack up"!!

Celia Fae said...

I'm scared of the moose knuckle evident in the spidey suit. Tell me it's his pants.
