I Am Not Very Good At Trying To Look Like My Cartoon Character

This weekend I had the brainy idea to try and mimic my cartoon character.

I mean, if I’m going to have a cartoon character on my blog than I should at least see if I can look anything close to it.

I’m probably the only one who thinks this way, but whatever, it’s been bothering me.

I don’t want to false advertise.

And with that being said, I am totally false advertising.

And I can’t mimic my cartoon character.

I can’t even come close

My hair doesn’t flip that way.

My Santa hat is too big and the other 2 hats are too small.

I got slobber all over my pants.

And it appears as though a ghost was pulling Sherman’s right ear.

And no one was interested in cooperating.

How hard is it?

One of you sit to my left and the other one sit to my right.

Leroy just wanted to knock me down and eat the treats out of my pockets.

And who or what is pulling Sherman’s right ear again?

Freaky.

My knee doesn’t bend that way and there’s no way my hand is ever going to be in that position and Leroy just burped in my face.

The slobber towel wasn’t suppose to be in the pictures but I forgot to drop it.

The sight of the Santa hat….. or Leroy, apparently made Sherman want to vomit.

Or maybe he’s possessed.

So no.

I can not mimic my cartoon character.

And Sherman and Leroy can’t either.

My apologies.

    Well maybe next time:( I haven’t even gotten out my Santa hats to try. We were shopping for decorations first. Last year someone came in the middle of the night and stole my lighted motion reindeer (2). I have had those for over 12 years and I was devastated & Over half of our light burned out. So we were just trying to get basics to get started. I probably won’t have much luck with the Santa hats. For some reason as soon as they see they they become so stubborn !!

      That is horrible! I don’t know why some people do that!

      I hear you though-about starting over the lights, we started that doing that last year and I was suppose to buy a few more lights this year but I keep forgetting :(

    Too funny…I think it’s pretty close – Sherman & Leroy look pretty good and if you were bending the other way – close enough I say. (How long did you spend on this Jen?)

      I know! I was so mad when I looked at the pictures and saw that I was going in the wrong direction and there was no way I was doing it again!

      It honestly only took about 20 minutes. Gracie was pretty quick with the camera and Leroy and Sherman lost patience with the whole scene pretty quick and I knew I shouldn’t push my luck!

    At least they are gazing up at you adoringly. (Or are trying to figure out the best way to steal the treats…) Either way, that’s the important part, right? Maybe you just need a new cartoon character! ;-)

    I really wanted to see you do this in PINK HIGH HEELS cuz if you would have mastered that one I would have had to buy you something really awesome for Christmas! But I did notice you had scrubby tennis shoes on so……sorry, your Christmas gift will have to come from the dollar store:(

      Leave my shoes alone, it was muddy in the backyard and I’m saving up for a pair of hiking boots!

      I bought all your Christmas presents at the dollar store so go ahead-we probably bought the same stuff! Your dogs are going to get better presents than you :)
