Yep, it’s time for SPF, the photo game that ANYONE can play! (Kristine said so!)

She must be feeling a bit feisty this week as she has an interesting assignment.  We’ve been asked to post:

Something mean looking

Our weapons

Our hiding spot

OK, here goes!

-Something mean looking


This is a key chain that KT got in Korea.  It’s called a “monster mask” tile and it lives on her backpack.  We have a few other Korea pieces, but they all have smiles on them…takes away the mean look…

-Your weapons


The girls have some pretty scary weapons that they use in martial arts, but those aren’t mine.  The ones I use, (modeled by KT) look much more mundane, but they are way more deadly! I use the End Dust to zap the back of Shaun’s head when his smart mouth gets away from him.  (Is it any wonder that he’s now bald?)

The squrt bottle is the best way I have found to get the girls to stop aruging.  They may ignore my words, but a few squirts helps them resolve issues right away.  It’s a very effective form of “Mama Magic”!

-Your hiding place

My secretsecret hiding place in the house is the inside of the oven.  Unfortunately, everyone knows about it.  I’m too attached to it to go find another one!

Did you play?

    LOL…I LOVE your hiding place…do y’all live in a gingerbread house? 😉 and I thought the squirt bottle thing only worked on cats …I’ll have to remember that next time the nieces or nephews are over 🙂

    ha, i love that you squirt at your girls to make them stop fighting. i do that with my cat actually when she gets into stuff she’s not supposed to (or eats all my balcony plants again..) 🙂

    happy SPF – and you know i played 😉

    I played!

    I find it interesting that you use a squirt bottle for your kids, and I thought I was just being cruel to my cats!!! Good to know that it’s effective for humans too!!!

    Thanks for dropping by!

    You know if you turn the canned air upside down it shoots supercooled liquid! i have actually seen people get frostbite from it. Great for shooting bugs. Just don’t shoot Shaun in the back of his bald head with it.

    That IS a mean looking key chain. I bet it keeps bad spirits away. And I neve thought about hiding in a oven. Seems cramped. 😉

    Great key chain- very cool!
    I used the squit bottle on my dog when she was a pup and it worked.

    Happy SPF and I played too.

  9. hope you’re not thinking of actually hiding IN the oven.

  10. Your hiding place is awesome! My luck, I’d hide something in there, then forget about it and bake it. And, I’m stealing your squirt bottle idea. I knew it worked with the dog, can’t wait to try it on the boys!!

  11. Teena says:

    Quite the scary key chain!

    I played too 🙂

    I love the squirt bottle idea. I just say, “If you don’t stop, you’re never using the computer again. ever. no MySpace.” and all the sudden they are friends again!!

    I have been using a squirt bottle on my kitten, but then my kids are grown and gone. LOL! Hmmm, that’s quite the hiding place. I hadn’t thought of that one. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

    Funny stuff…never would have thought to use the Endust zapper on hubby! Mine’s bald too, so I know it would be effective. The squirt bottles brought back memories too. My mom used to start water fights at our house, only to get ahead of us and dash inside to watch the fun. When we were at the spigot (under the kitchen window) to refill our various weapons, she would attack from above with the sink sprayer!! Good times!!!
