The Green Goblin

Sometimes its really hard to keep a straight face and not fall over laughing when my girls get into trouble. Like today, for instance, when the girls were "playing nicely" in my bedroom while I was making their lunch. When I called them in to eat, they both walked into the kitchen and sat up at the table as if Annelie wasn't covered in green glitter and ochre.

"Oh yum! Chicken! I love chicken!" Gracie said as sweetly as can be, buttering me up, to be sure. I just stared at Annelie's glittery green face, biting my cheeks to keep from smiling. Looking angry is such a struggle when you want to laugh oh-so-very badly.

And did they honestly think I wouldn't notice?

Gracie - the make-up artist - knew they were in trouble as soon as she saw my face, and started crying and promised that she "will never ever do naughty things ever, ever again."

And, "I'll make sure to always say please and thank you," she added as a bonus.

I let them off easy - no dessert after lunch. But I had to snap some photos of Annelie's awesomely naughty makeover, because seriously... its funny. I just made sure to say, "Oh boy, Daddy is going to be soooo mad. I need to snap a photo to show him."

The fear of punishment clearly doesn't stop Annelie from putting her... um... best face forward and smiling with all that she's got.


Never a dull moment, that's for sure.

xoxo,

Christopher And Tia said...

Wow.

...bad girls! naughty girls!

AlyGatr said...

Is that paint or makeup? Not that it would make it any less naughty...just curious :) How funny that Gracie knows to lead with a compliment. Now she needs to work on better cover stories...hee hee.

Sadly, this is just what I looked like when I purchased the Almay Green Eyed Eyeshadow Enhancer Thingie from Walmart.

They call me mommy... said...

LOL! she is such an adorable little goblin! You kinda have to admire the team work!(although I'm sure Gracie would be perfectly happy if you didn't know she was involved and she could blame it all on Annelie) I have those moments all the time, except I don't have the strength you have, I usually end up laughing. A LOT. Which makes them laugh, which makes me laugh more. It is a ridiculous cycle of laughter before I can finally pull myself together long enough to say how bad they are before I run to another room to continue my laughing *and find the camera to take the naughty picture for evidence!*

They look like cute little Elpheba's from Wicked!

ElegantSnobbery said...

Melissa and Tia - Yes... a hoot - and VERY naughty!!

Aly- make up and paint. The brown is from a tube of my watercolors. The green is some glittery mineral makeup.

Kearsie - Ahahahaha! Well, you'll never find me wearing glittery green eyeshadow (I didn't buy it...) but if I did, I'd probably look like that, too.

Sasha - I bet your kids think you are so much fun for that vicious cycle of laughter!!

SeeMomSmile - haha, very funny. Though Elpheba's make up was a little smoother :D

Tina Laurel Lee said...

That is fantastic. Now I know exactly what you were doing after unplugging! Well, they did do such a good job during the unplugging and Annelie's face does look so good! Glad you were easy on them!

w said...

wait. so is that how you do your make up, too? because that's how i do mine. we're totally bff.

SewSweetStitches said...

Oh wow, we could really swap some "makeover" stories!
Great stuff to pull out at their graduation or wedding, eh?

ElegantSnobbery said...

Tina - I definitely couldn't be too hard on them after they were SO good for my unpluggage hour before. :D

W - Totally BFF... but no, that is not how I do my makeup. You are all on your own there (well, not alone per se. You have Annelie with you)

Melissa - Oh you better BELIEVE these photos will all come out when they are grown and easily embarrassed. PAY BACK!

The Momma said...

She has a great eye for color!!!

Bombdigity said...

ahahahahaaaa I could totally picture you biting the insides of your cheeks trying not to bust up ... I've done that too, but not as successful, sometimes I can't hold it

maybe they picked the green cuz they're getting ready for the new Shrek movie ;oP

DancingMooney ♥ said...

you know what, she's actually got that eyeshadow thing down pretty well. maybe she can teach me how to do a smokey eye.

;)

Jonathon Arntson said...

So fantastically adorable!

stephanie said...

HA!! adorable! I used to work in a preschool and I'd laugh my butt off at the creative way kids misbehaved.

beautiful make over!

Winklepots said...

I think Gracie has a future in Hollywood, doing makeup for the rich and famous. I hear green is the new black; she's always up with the trends.

Just sayin'.
