How Our Kids View Our Family

This is hilarious. Last week when I went to pick up the kids from school, they had these art projects on the wall outside of the classroom. They are in the shape of a house with “The Steece Family” at the top.

 

The kids were supposed to look through magazines and pick out pictures that reminded them of each member of the family. I’ll start with the best and work my way down…

God love you, Savannah Leigh. Tea Leoni? Uhh…I’ll TAKE IT! With a fashionable Joe and relatively “similar” looking siblings. Of course she has pigtails and is eating a cupcake. Sav even went as far as to match Ethan in green and Drew in blue. Wow. Nice work, girlfriend!

 

 

Ethan

Mom is still fashionable- I’m down with the long, blonde hair. Dad is a wee bit older (but still good looking) with salt-n-pepper hair. Ethan and Andrew look very similar---nice work. Ben is a tad younger. And, ahem, Sav is a cute African-American 10 year old. LOL.

 

 

Benjamin

First off, I am a grandma who closely resembles Jane Lynch! Really Ben? Is THAT how you view me?! Thanks, dude. LOL. Joe looks good- like an Aggie yell leader. He’ll like that. The kids all look pretty “similar”…so, just Mama got the raw end of the deal on this one. Ha!

 

 

Andrew

Andrew…oh, Andrew Paul Steece. You are a different breed and I love you for that. I laughed SOOOOOOO HARD when I saw “Joe”---I’m pretty sure I disrupted all the classrooms in the hallway. Ha-la-rious. Mom is okay (a little “homely”). Ethan looks similar. Ben is a red-head with freckles. Andrew is African-American. And Sav is Asian.

Bwahahaha. God love Andrew…our quirky little genius.

Those are so cute and definitely something that will bring the laughs for years to come! I'm tempted to do this little project with my girls now to see what their perceptions are!

I think this is the first time I have commented, but oh my goodness. I am laughing so hard I am crying...my husband thinks I am a total weirdo, but these pictures cracked me up. Can't wait until my girls get older and get to make fun things like this! Your family is beautiful by the way, Love your blog and reading about your cuties. Savannah reminds me very much of my own strong willed little 3 year old girl!

Dawn said...

Thanks for the laugh! Andrew's is especially hilarious! :)

Jamie said...

I laughed out loud multiple times and am now wiping the tears. My hubby doesn't get why I'm crying even as I tried to explain. Favorite was the Aggie Yell Leader.

Grandma Honey said...

This was too good!!

Kim said...

Haha...You're posts usually make me laugh but this one really did the trick. You have a way with words. I've been following your blog for a while now and just started my own blog (workymommy.blogspot.com).

Emily said...

I was laughing so hard I was crying and my face was contorted. Hilarious. (Grandma was hilarious. Thank goodness you have 4 opinions to go by, including Tea Leoni, instead of just "grandma"!)

Savannah said...

These made me laugh out loud! Such sweet perceptions your kiddos have! Thanks for sharing.

Kendra said...

I've been reading since the kiddos were little peeps but have never commented! I was crying I was laughing so hard!! Loved this!!!

boysmum2 said...

Awesome, made me laugh and smile

AmazingGreis said...

O.M.G - that is great!

Stacey said...

I kept laughing harder and harder as I went down the list. I think tears started somewhere when grandma made her appearance...but bald old guy was a topper on the cake. This is totally something my kids would do!

Alyssa said...

Other than reliving the story of when an escaped con hid in my grandma's garage while she was washing the car topless and she ran to the neighbor's house, this was the best laugh I had all day! Thanks!

The Hords said...

I seriously could not stop laughing when I saw this. People started staring. So funny and utterly sweet. Love it!

Anonymous said...

SOOOO funny!!! But also I loved the little window into the future (or present!!!) it gave...Sav so attentive to all the little details of each of you...and then each of the boys less and less so! So interesting!!

Amanda said...

I'm still wiping away tears after reading perhaps the funniest thing ever written. This was absolutely the highlight of my week! Thank you for sharing!

Anonymous said...

Hilarious!! You know the bald guy is Christopher Lloyd... he's, um, interesting. He used to host a home decor show and would sometimes dress as a woman in his show to present his tips for decorating. I've never met y'all, but he doesn't strike me as much like Joe. Too funny!

Anonymous said...

I liked reading your comments before checking out the pictures. Of course, by the bottom, I laughed out loud beforehand whens spotting Joe's picture.

Looks like Andrew is all about diversity. : )

I laughed so hard that I freaked out my cats! He-freaking-larious!!!

Sandy P said...

God bless preschool teachers for the joy they bring us through our kids projects. What a wonderful keepsake. I think Sav is showing how much more girls pay attention to details!

Keri said...

This is too funny! I was dying laughing out loud!! Love this little project! Precious kiddos!

The Rodriguez Crew said...

This made my night! I might have to let my almost 4 year old have a go at this idea just to see what ethnicity he picks out for us!! Ha!

Les and Kimberly said...

Oh my gosh, I just laughed so hard. Thanks for sharing their pictures. What a great laugh to start off the morning!!! :)

Kat said...

Best. project. ever. I cannot stop laughing. Thank you so much for sharing these :)

Anonymous said...

Awesome! I remember being that age. Race wasn't a "thing". Boy and girl was just starting to be a "thing". All the "things" that divide us are heaped onto us by adults/society. What a nice reminder -- and so cute!

Megan said...

O.M.G! Thanks for the morning laugh! I needed it in a big way!

Katie said...

OMG I am dying laughing. Especially at the last one!

debi9kids said...

OMGosh! I am sitting here laughing like crazy! This is hysterical.
I started giggling with Ethan's Sav and just LOST it from there.
Thanks so much! I needed a good laugh.

Moni Graf said...

This is hysterical! I was laughing out loud. So cute!

Erin said...

Oh gosh, I was laughing SOOOO hard, making these weird walrus noises, my eyes watered up so badly!! It started when I saw Ethan's 'Savannah' then Ben's 'Mom' and Drew's everything... especially the 'Dad'! I would stop laughing and then look at the screen and start laughing all over again! Soooo funny!
