just one of the ways my kids torture me

So it's no secret in my family that I am a big ole fraidy cat. I scare way to easily. My kids love to hide and jump out at me just to see me jump and (their words) "scream like a little girl." I never fail to deliver. The last few weeks they've come up with a new and altogether creepy way to freak me out when I least expect it. We are now the proud owners of a three foot high Barbie doll. Dressed in clothing that would fit Katie. At first I relegated her to the basement but every time I went down there to do laundry or get something out of the freezer I'd catch her standing in the corner or perched on the counter and my heart would stop and I'd shriek as if someone was murderizing me. After the first couple times my family ceased being alarmed and decided to take advantage of the situation. So now I never know where she's going to turn up.

I'm on my way to make the bed and yargghhh!!!! she's standing in the doorway.

Looking for something to wear....aaaiiiieeeeee!!!!

You weren't thinking of taking a shower???? mawhahahahahaha!

There are just not enough words to describe how disturbing this one is.

Just when you thought it was safe to sweep the floor...eeeeeeekk!!!

Hellooooo! Need some help fixing lunch?

I'm telling you, she may have perfect skin, blonde hair, blue eyes and the measurements of a swimsuit model but she's more frightening than Chuckie.

Marie, I am so happy that you are having such a good time with BARBIE>>> God knows I could not wait to re-home her. You hear about people rehoming animals, but I was lucky enough to rehome what seemed to be my kids and husbands way to get me, more than once. Just before I gave her to you, we were packing. I was pulling stuff from our eves, when I kept yelling for Kelly or tommy to knock it off and get out of there. Well I guess I was screaming at one point because all 4 of them came up to see what I was yelling at. I felt like a jerk. My poor children were getting into trouble and it was BARBIE. I hope you have as much fun as I did, and keep an eye on Joe. I found Kelly making Matt sit and have tea with her more than once!! And as Joe will do, Matt did. Matt said to tell Joe, she is great to watch football with, she doesn't say much!!! Talk to you soon, tell everyone I said hello... Donna
