Proud to be an American

So, I was surfing the internet, and came across this picture. Not sure exactly WHO it is, but sure thought it was funny looking, so I thought I'd share. I think I'll send this to the Army recruiting office.

Hmmmmm...what a cute kid.

Kind of looks like Creth!

Wow Creth....you post your pictures on the internet?? That's kind of weird.

Micah & Brad said...

No way!! I mean, come on! How could I randomly be surfing and come across a picture of Creth?!? You may be right, though, Jen, it does kinda look like a tree!

Jen said...

I feel like I should stand up, put my hand over my heart and recite the pledge of allegiance

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America..."

christian said...

But, really, why is he half naked? Where would this have been taken? Didn't his parents know to dress him in proper clothing (note: that does NOT include overalls)?

Micah & Brad said...

I'm right there with you, Jen! I'm actually getting a little emotional. Do you have a tissue?

Jen said...

Mayyyybeeee...he was adopted and his parents never told him. THAT is why this is on the internet, to try and get an American couple to adopt him. Explains why he is half dressed, or he could be naked for all we can "see". He was so poor he had no clothes.
(ignoring the overall comment)

Jen said...

Micah...I am barely holding it together over here. Between the American flag and thinking about this poor boy who had no clothes and just wanted to be loved...it's too much I tell you....I....

Micah & Brad said...

(sniff, sniff) I (sniff) know, (sniff) Jen. Can we please (sniff) just not talk about this (sniff) so close to (sniff) Christmas!!!

christian said...

Even I'm getting teary eyed

:*-(

(that's a tear)

Micah & Brad said...

Jen, I have a job for you while you're in Dallas. Do you think you could find some time (while Christian and Jason are at work) to dig through some of Christian's stuff and find an old picture of him? He's really the only one that hasn't been embarrassed so far. Of course, that is debatable with his profile picture...

Micah & Brad said...

Do you guys think Creth's parents ever brushed his hair? Christian, does he ever brush his hair now?

christian said...

I won't be at work while Jen is around. If she goes snooping, she will find some funny pictures, but none from the early years. I'll see if I can't find some while I'm back "home."

And to answer your questions, Micah: no and no.

Micah & Brad said...

Does anybody besides me have trouble keeping up with everyone's blogs? I think we should all join forces and just start one big blog.

christian said...

Yes, I find it very difficult to keep up, especially when work is busy.

Micah & Brad said...

hey, i keep forgetting to ask what you boys thought of the movie? seen it yet?

Creth said...

WOW

Creth said...

...that sure looks like a fabricated photograph of my youth

Creth said...

gee.

could Christian be the source of this colossal fabrication?

Jen said...

uh Christian has been busy working all day....

Jen said...

oh and Micah I will "try" and get some pictures of Chris!

Micah & Brad said...

Christian who? I know a Chris, but no Christian.

Make sure they're really embarrassing, Jen!! I need to be outdone here at some point :o)!

christian said...

I was really just cute up until 13 (except for 2nd grade - that was a tough year...I always strechted out my shirt collars). After 13 came the acne years. Not awful, but not so good either. Then the hair added a nice little wave that was most unattractive. I spent 4 years trying to get rid of it - and it generally stays away now, though it comes back to haunt me every now and then. Now I'm just me. Red hair, deep set eyes, a "southern" nose, pretty "average" features, pretty average height, pretty average build...yeah, i'm a pretty average guy. Except for the hair.

christian said...

Ah, drat.

Creth said...

you know, the guys in my third grade class at First Baptist Academy used to call me "American Eagle"

...that was until they saw this picture of me and I had to transfer schools.

Micah & Brad said...

I still haven't heard what you or you thought of the movie!!!

christian said...

I haven't seen it yet. I had a marathon to run and a lot of work to do. Maybe this weekend.

christian said...

I decided it was time to get my feelings aired out a bit.

my feelings

Creth said...

ask Jen.

I believe she has my opinion or "review" in an e-mail

Jen said...

what am I your secretary??? But since I am a nice person...

"well, I thought it was very good. entertaining... though I had fears that the special effects wouldn't be so.... special, and those fears sorta came to fruition, but that's all right. I still enjoyed the movie"

But seriously..."ask Jen" tsk tsk

Creth said...

(t-he-he)

(hehehehe)

Creth said...

by-the-way

as of now, I am totally a quote "film critic" and LOVING IT

ash said...

yes...i know...exciting..im maing cookeis for him!!

Micah & Brad said...

Jen, I can't believe you just bowed before him like that!!!! What are you doing?!?!? The lazy bum!!!

Jen said...

So Creth, will you be "writing and sending" your own reviews or having someone else do YOUR work for you?

Yes Micah....I am ashamed....I have a hard time saying "no" If he lived with Jason , I would suspect that Jason was behind this. My brothers used to call my name occasionally from another room and I would come and then they would say "We just wanted to see if you would obey". funny guys. I fell for it everytime. Good thing I can laugh at myself or I might have never talked to them again.

Micah & Brad said...

HAHAHAHA!!! That's hilarious, Jen!!! And, quite ingenious, Jon and Jason! (Not that they need any encouragement :o)

Jen said...

If I can bring laughter to this world through my embarrassment, then life is worth living.....

christian said...

Wow, I'm gonna have to try that "obey" trick sometime with my next girlfriend. We might not last very long, but we'll have a great time together!

Jen said...

Ok so I was at my brother Joel's b-ball game tonight and we all stood and look at the flag while the music played.....I...could not....keep a straight face b/c all I saw was "Creth" and was remembering our dialog about the American flag. I think people were staring, but I was on the verge of laughing my butt off....funny funny...

Oh and Christian a word to the wise,,,,don't do that to your girlfriend, well unless she has a good sense of humor...then you go for it! ;)

Micah & Brad said...

Jen, one more time and I'm going to change your name to "happy fingers"

Creth said...

Jen.

I don't know what to say to your thinking of me while staring at the flag...

I'm honored, I guess

Jen said...

Happy fingers?? What?

Micah & Brad said...

well, Jen, you posted the same comment twice again :)

Jen said...

I figured it out...it's my roommate's computer...seriously...it is very sensitive when you hit enter.

Creth said...

that's funny

I'm "very sensitive"

or at least, that's what I've been told

Jen said...

wow

there are so many things I could say to that...

I think I will bite my tongue..

Creth said...

Jen.
