Cheese! (Energy, energy! Go go go go go go go!)

My kids cannot get enough of this video.  There are a number of things you might notice when viewing it:

  • Audrey, of course.  She’s trying to say, “Cheese!” for the camera, not knowing that I had it on video mode.
  • She’s wearing one of Wesley’s undershirts, because her throat and chest had Mentholatum on them.  That’s why I put her in pigtails, too, to keep her hair out of the mess.  She looks really cute.  (Not that I’m biased.)
  • My husband keeps messing with her, completely unrepentant.  🙂
  • The background noise.  The, “Energy, energy! Go go go go go go go!” part is my eleven year old.  He can’t believe it’s him.  It is.  I keep telling him that he can be incredibly annoying…  I now have proof.  ETA:  Wait.  After the umpteenth-billion viewing, maybe it’s Grant, my 9yo.  What’s funny is that when I was recording this, I didn’t even notice the background noise.  I automatically tune out the chaos.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. That is funny! Sounds just like our house. Only thing is that the girls tent to want to get into the picture and act (some annoying as the go thing just different format!)

    Daddy bothering the girls is the same too! It must be a dad thing.

  2. That’s Grant yelling “Die! Die you too! Die! Arrgh! Uraaaghhg!” right?

    What were they doing? And who was winning the battle?

  3. I totally relate to the “tune out the background noise” bit.

  4. Nick ~ No, that was Wesley!! Seems so peaceful, doesn’t he?? Only we know the truth. 😀 I don’t know who was winning! Theirs are usually everyone against everyone battles.

  5. Interestingly, my dad never cared about us kids having our epic battles, but no “die!” or anything like that was allowed. In fact, nothing was outruled until there was blood on the carpet. Or something broke.

  6. Gabriel makes similar noises all day long. 🙂

    That was cute. She has gotten to be such a big girl!
