We're not big fans of winter. The only good part of this season is that it's socially acceptable to grow a burly bush of upper lip hair to keep us warm, but other than that it's just cold, dreary and it's also the season of the flu. Just thinking about the chills, the aching, and the fevers makes us want to curl up and cry for our mommy-- it's awful.
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
No matter what the holiday, we always love getting extra festive. It's not like we need an excuse to wear awful Christmas sweaters or take part in a harmless snowman prank, but doing that stuff during the season makes us look a little less crazy. The season also provides the perfect excuse to go way overboard in the decorating department.
With the presidential election less than a week away, candidates are bombarding us from all angles with ads, debates and last-minute pushes to secure votes. (Their efforts are pretty much pointless considering we joined The Pizza Party a while back, but that's besides the point.)
In all seriousness, all this presidential hoopla can be a little overwhelming and upsetting at times. This is especially true if you're a politically-aware four-year-old.
We love our parents; we really do. It's just that during those early years, they can seem like the most embarrassing people on the planet. It's tough enough growing up (kudos to you if you can read the word "puberty" without wincing) without lame-o parents humiliating you, but when it comes to two parents in Wisconsin, we have to admit they've surpassed "embarrassing" and jumped straight to "awesome."
Dogs really are man's best friends. They’re adorable and they look out for us humans when things go awry. Recently we’ve met the German Shepherd who found a missing doctor, a Chihuahua who sniffed out two lost girls, and now, the rescue dog who saved a baby’s life.
Imagine you’re walking along the beach in Florida having a grand ole’ time. Life is good. Then all of a sudden, you come across a humongous, weird eyeball. Did we totally just ruin your fantasy with that? Sorry.
There are tons of things we love about America. Our grand ole’ country cranks out hysterical, nightmare-inducing shows about mini pageant queens and we throw Big Bird into the political scene, for example. But our recent discovery tops them all-- ladies and gentlemen, we live in the presence of the most recent world champion pumpkin grower.
