Hokey Pokey Nosey Picky

Abby & Zack learned the Hokey Pokey today at the library singing time. We were having some fun watching them do their new dance, but it got a lot funnier when Lila got upset about a different kind of poking.

If you can't tell, bedtime isn't always our children's most rational hour.

p.s. Emily is making me point out that she had just taken the very cute piggy tails out of Abby's hair which resulted in the beautiful style you see her sportin' here.

oh my gosh. Aaron and I just died laughing. Lila and the nose picking dilemma = HILARIOUS.

My favorite was when Johnny was asking her which fingers she picked with and then when she showed him how she picks with her ring finger, he goes, "You do that?"

oh we might just have to go watch that a couple more times...

I just laughed out loud!! Too funny!

emilyaaa said...

that is the sweetest and funniest video i've ever seen!! Lila is so smart, so cute, and so lucky to have such good parents! Abby and Zack could NOT be any cuter!

I can't tell you how happy i was to see a new blog post from the russ fam--i've been needing a little russ fix :)

Your kids are soooooo cute!!!! I can't wait to see you all--even little miss pick my nose with every one of my fingers, Lila! Lila's hair cut is so cute on her.

Cassi said...

This is so cute. You cut Lila's hair!! She looks so old and cute. I can't believe you cut her fingernails...how mean, now she can't even pick her own nose. Love it!

Stephanie and Co. said...

Don't you just hate those too short nails? What a tragedy. :) Abby and Zack are cute, cute.

Shay said...

That is so funny! Poor Lila...it's those simple things in life that make things so easy like long fingernails...you can do so much. Oh she cracks me up. I know what I'll be teaching Daxton this weekend... and it's not about picking your nose.

Tiffany said...

I peed my pants-literally. Seeing this made me so happy that you guys are coming. YIPEEEEE!!!

Amy said...

Love the hokey pokey dancing, the twins are hilarious! And what kid doesn't like to pick their nose?, at least Lila isn't in denial that she is a nose picker, admitting it is step 1 right? Our kids have been known to pull the pick then eat it routine, so nasty!

Lisa said...

Morgan asked me awhile back, "Do you cut my fingernails so I can't pick my nose?" Her & Lila may not see each other often, but they are kindred spirits.

Adam and Angie Chandler said...

Oh my goodness! This is so dang funny! And I have to admit I was amazed by how Johnny handled Lila. Oh I laughed!

Jodi said...

That is hiliarious!

The Stucki's said...

I love you guys! All I can say is I'm still laughing and your kids are way too cute!

Rosemary said...

thanks for the hilarious post - bill and I are cracking up. Have fun in Canada!

Tanya said...

What is wrong with picking your nose with your thumb? Travis

Ellen said...

Funniest thing I've seen in a long time!! Love you Emily and your cute family.

Holy cow that is one of the funnest things I've seen in a long time. I watched that while studying in the library and had to cover my mouth so I didn't disturb the other studiers with my laughter.

Love it, Johnny and Em. Of course Johnny would have the whole conversation to clarify which fingernails are okay to cut short... so funny. And Lila's hair is so cute cut short!!!

And the twins. ADORABLE. Love it...

Tami said...

I haven't commented yet because I was media fasting so I thought I would come comment...
I LOVED this video! It was so cute!
I have the same problem when I cut my fingernails... good luck Lila!

Tami said...

Oh and I really like Lila's hair. It's way cute.
And... what were you thinking cutting her fingernails? Now you're going to have to pick her nose for her. Hopefully by now they've grown back enough.

Shanna said...

Emily this makes me laugh so hard! I showed it to my family and we got such a kick out of it! Thanks so much for the awesome post:)

Tami said...

Emily, I just noticed that neither Mom or Dad commented so I thought I would comment for them. Mom has showed so many people this video, and when ever it gets to the picking the nose part, Dad always says how gross it is and to turn it off. They both love it though. Very cute video. I can watch it over and over and never get bored of it! (Sorry this is the 3rd comment I have left now on this post. I won't comment again.)

Heidi said...

Oh how we Love Lila.....there are not words to describe how she makes us laugh. Will and Juliette are both begging me to show the video again.

Tell Lila that Juliette is totally able to pick her nose, and her fingernails are basically non existent, because of her disgusting habit of biting them. Nice combo, picking your nose and biting your nails...and I'm a germaphobe.
