If You're Gonna Have Teenagers......

Good Morning and welcome to my home!

Should you need it, the toilet paper can be found in the trees today!

And this kind gentleman will be glad to collect some for you.......


He was really mad at me for taking his picture.

I was just glad we don't live in our old house with the 9 HUGE trees in our yard. This is nothing compared to those TP jobs!

25 years of teens!

I wonder how many more mornings like this one I have to look forward to???

There is nothing like waking up to a rain of toliet paper! It can be a huge mess, especially if it rains before clean up. I love to go rolling. That is what we call it. I have carried Andrea and her friends rolling for several years. Ususally, because you go in the night and we didn't want them on the road that late. This is just one of the things that I will miss ...yes you read right ...I said miss when Andrea leaves for college. Our house always gets rolled several times ...usually this starts when football season starts and goes through Oct. I actually think I have some garbage bags full of toliet paper rolls left from last years rolling. Maybe we should do this one last time. I wonder who we should roll?

That is soooo funny. Oh how I remember the days that our house would get TP'd. Those were the days...for us kids of course, not mom and dad.

Have a good weekend!

I think Costco has helped with making TP'ing an official sport...we always keep alot of it around our house...hehe!

Did the sprinklers come on and make it all mushy?

I remember well my toilet papering days when I was a cheerleader! I wonder how that tradition got started. We should do some research on that!

Kristen said...

LOL!
I remember tp'ing as a teenager too! Now that I have a house... ugggh! I feel so badly about doing that to our friend's parents! ha ha

That's great that you have a sense of humor about it. I've been so inspired by all of your posts and all the ladies here that I decided to revive my blog and begin posting again. I'll continue my travel posts but about other topics as well. Thanks all for the inspiration.

fun!
i remember our backyard looking like that sometimes!
and the scary thing is now, it's MY backyard cuz we bought my childhood home, and the trees are that much BIGGER and i have one teen and two "tweens" - now i know what to look forward to! :)

RefreshMom said...

We have 10 years or so before our trees will look like that, but I do laugh when I see our neighbors house "decorated" that way. Their daughter must be really popular because it seems to happen about every other week to them.

Life with teens...full of fun times. Too funny:) At least those teens can help with clean-up.

Rolling yards was an official sport during my senior year. Every week there was an occasion to roll a teacher's yard. I had to roll my own yard once because I lived with my grandparents and my uncle still lived at home. He was a teacher. He never singled me out for it but I remember cleaning up - AFTER DARK. LOL. Memories.....

Amy said...

You are so funny!
Just remember Bill Cosby's mother's curse......"I hope when you grow up to have teenagers of your own that they do exactly all the things that you've done!".......And Bill Cosby says that curse works.;)

Runner Mom said...

Bless your heart! At least your house wasn't egged!! Have a lovely weekend!! You are just too cute!
Love ya,
Susan

Susan said...

Oh, how I remember those days!!! (not long ago, like last year...)

What a MESS, especially if it rains after...

Yes, this is what teens love to do, and parents get to do AFTER!

Someone must be pretty popular in your household!!

Love and miss you Kelly. We need to chat.

Have a blessed day today, after all♥

I feel your pain (or should I say, "White Cloud"). We have lots of trees in our yard and for about 5 years straight on New Year's Eve our house would get rolled. They have skipped us for the last two (probably because the youth that loved our yard so much moved from behind us - I know our OWN neighbors! But there are new youth coming up in our church and my daughter is 15, so I know oneday I will walk outside and find white trees again! We just laugh (and then go get them back!) LOL

Carmen said...

I'm not looking forward to those years! ;o)

Of course, I'm quite sure that one of my daughters will be the one doing the t.p'ing around the hood.

I'll go buy the locks for her door now...

Oh, Alyssa's friends or enemies how ever you look at them used to get us all the time. I even would be the getaway driver for them when they would go assault someone until I found out the fine for participating. Aaron's friends have yet to start this with us and hopefully Alivia won't have any friends.
At least it didn't rain! ;)

These are the good old days, sister! You'll miss them one day!
Love you,

Ha! When I was a silly 8th grader, my friend and I TP'd the beach cottage next door to ours. (There were some really cute older boys staying there who paid us absolutely no attention whatsoever!)

The next morning, we confessed to my dad, who promptly made us clean it all up (after laughing first ... but he quickly stopped after a sharp elbow to the ribs from my mother!). Those goofy boys slept in so late, it was all cleaned up before they woke up. They never even knew what we had done!

TP and teenagers. A good fit. In more ways than one!
