Would You Rather...

Thanksgiving makes you think. 
I can't stop thinking about one thing that I am
completely thankful for...
I am so thankful our home is full of giggles. 

It made me think of a game we play
that make all the kids giggle like crazy.
Would you Rather? 
We don't have the cards, we make up our own.

Here is our recent fav:
Would you rather have to wear a clown hat or an eye patch, with a skull & crossbones, every single day for the rest of your life?
What would you pick?
We have two camps in our house.
Team Eye Patch
( I know sunglasses AND an eye patch are a tad overdone
but hey a girl needs to accessorize)
& I am sure that if Roo could talk...
...he'd pick team eye patch, he's cool like that.
So guess who that leaves for
Team Clown Hat
That's right, My cowboy.
He thought we were all a touch vain 
& he didn't want to impair his eyesight.
I found his confidence very cute.
Literally, I mean just look at him...very cute :)
(He does not know I am posting this!)
Hi Hon...Love you!
Anyway I am sticking to Team Eye Patch for sure.
So, I thought today I'd share the latest little list of questions we have dreamed up so you can have some laughter in your home too.
(made up by kids of all ages)

 Would you rather...
...have to wear a clown hat or an eye patch, with a skull & crossbones, every single day for the rest of your life?
...have giant eyeballs or a giant nose?
...have your only car be a garbage truck or a parade float?
...have spaghetti like hair or two foot long feet? a fairy or a ballerina?  (great to ask dads & brothers)
...have 15 little sisters or 15 big sisters?
...have one long bushy eyebrow or a Santa beard that grows back every night while you sleep? your bedroom door and find it full of snakes or mice?
...have a pie thrown in your face or sit on a birthday cake?
...have stinky feet or stinky arm pits?
...have to eat 50 scoops of ice cream or 100 Reese's Peanut butter cups?
...have to ride a ostrich or a llama for an entire football field?
...have a car horn that plays the Mexican Hat Dance or have a Hawaiian hula girl for a hood ornament?

...have feathers on your arms or scales on your face?

...kiss a toad or a mouse? a Mohawk or a mullet?

...catch a balled up angry hedgehog with your bare hands or be sprayed by a skunk?

...for one day, go to work/school wearing a blooming flowerpot on your head or dressed as a superhero?  (not on a costume day)

...shake up a pop and give it to your teacher or your grandma?

...brush your teeth with shaving cream or eat a cayenne pepper?

...have a puppet stuck to your hand or a bucket stuck to your foot?

...have a jellyfish stuck in your swimsuit or a crab bite your nose?

...have a unicorn horn or a beaver tail?

Please add one of your own in the comments!
Oh & please let me know what you would pick... 
Team Eye Patch or Team Clown Hat :)
Before I go,
I am also very thankful for Cheyenne over at Little Prairie Baby!
She honored my Dad in SUCH a special way! 
Thanks Cheyenne!!!
You will love meeting her!!!

Your family is such a hoot! My eyesight is pretty bad so I don't think I need to cover one up. Plus, driving in this country is crazy -- I need to make sure no one is gonna run into me. So I'm gonna have to go with the clown hat although I've been told I don't look good in hats (even the t-ballers I coached one year said "Coach Tammy, you look funny in a hat" :/)

Your boys are growing up so fast! Happy Thanksgiving! Tammy

Martina said...

I'd certainly go with team eye patch - looks so stylish on you!
And .... a bed in the cornfield or in the treetops?

Hello cute kiddies
Hello Libby
Happy weekend!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Even though I love you guys I think I would have to choose the clown hat since I LOVE hats.
Yes your cowboy is too cute and I love the pic with him and his sweetie on horses.
Can't wait to meet the new little one next month. I had two December babies on the 3rd and 22nd. lol
Honey I thought of you and your sweet family on Thanksgiving Day hoping you were all together and laughing just like this post.
I do love coming by here and seeing my extended family.
Much love to you all

Oh my goodness this is sweet...
these are so much fun..I want to play too.....I think I would fit in your home perfectly!
Would you rather eat a cob of corn sprinkled with black ants or a hot dog filled with inch worms!
I will be playing this game all night long poor girls! xoxo HUGADOODLES... ps....I would much rather wear an eye patch!

I would say clown hat:0) I like to be able to see too.
I copied the list to share with my family I'll let you know after we answer them:0) What a fun game!
You have the best idea's!! We played all-play picturanry with my kids last night. They come up with what they want to draw and then we trade off partners every 10minutes. It's lots of fun!

Originally I went team eye patch, but your hubby is right. It would make it so I couldn't see everything, so I think now I'm gonna go with clown hat.

I love all the questions. Thanks for sharing them. I'm gonna ask Elijah and Joe them on Saturday (the next time we'll all eat together) and see what they say.

Glad everyone is doing well and you had a great Thanksgiving!
