Meet Cleetus... Cleetus McDuffy

Happy Halloween!

My sister Camille always goes above and beyond when it comes to holiday celebrations! Her porch is full of a gazillion pumpkins so we had a fun time the other night digging in and getting our hands all grimey. I think this photo was taken right before I started screaming because I was sitting right in front of a jack-o-lantern and thought my bum had caught on fire!! :D

This morning I woke up to this guy inches from my face saying with his perfected slack-jawed accent...


"Let me ask you a question? Ya ever emptied out 12 gauge shotgun shell, filled it with some 10W-30 motor oil, add a half ounce of Milwaukee's Best and put that sucker in the 454 small-block engine of a 1962 Chevelle? That sucker will pull 400 pony's and do a quarter mile in about 11.2 seconds." hahaha! It's way more funny when he says it.



It's time I make a confession. This is what my husband really looks like...


Just kiddin'.

Meet Cleetus. My husband's alter ego. He comes out ever so often and cracks me up! Last weekend he was my date for a costume Halloween party & there was no KISS shirt under that mesh beauty. Needless to say he won the award for the funniest person! The rest of us Kartchner gals will make our appearances later today! :)

The winner of the Jamie Scraps kit is The J9!! Yay! Email me your address please!

I am laughing so hard right now at Collin's costume! That's classic! I can't wait to show Mike these pictures. He'll love it!

Ann said...

Can you tell me how you modified the colors of the photos in the baby album? They are so subtle and beautiful. I do not have Photoshop. Help! Thanks!

Amy said...

Love the can of chew Cleetus has in his pocket! It totally puts the hill in billy!! hee hee I hope he gives his teeth an extra scrub before you get your goodnight kiss!! =)

Damon called me from work, barely able to talk...to tell me about Collin's costume! How hilarious! He said his accent is just perfect:o)
And...WOW...your sister must have been extreeeeemly busy with all those pumpkins! How fun!!! Happy halloween!!!

Veronica said...

Man, Cletus is THE ONE for me! Can I have him for a while?
Your sister's porch is GORGEOUS!!

Mike and Michelle and family said...

I can totally see why you married Collin. So handsome and funny! I'd marry him too. Too bad you got him first. (Plus, I think he's probably too young for me.)
Happy Halloween!

Holly & Kasey said...

Hey, Collin would fit right in up here in Wyoming. He has it the nasty hill billy down pat!!! And those pumpkins!! I haven't even made time to carve the ONE on my porch! Very cute!

Tricia Wilson said...

Awesome! He even has a can of chew in his back pocket, perfect!!!!!

Corinna said...

I am begging you.....please make a video of him saying that question in his costume and post it to your blog! LOL

Suzanne said...

You and your husband are so fun and perfect for each other. A little secret....if my husband were dressed up like that, there wouldn't be any "kiss" with or without a t-shirt! LOL

~Sasha Farina~ said...

i had to laugh... he is soooooo funny!!!

Rena said...

Do you know anyone who isn't amazing? That front porch looks like the cover of a magazine! It seems like you are always laughing! I am so jealous that your husband is hilarious!

Julie said...

love the jack-o-laterns!

Kass Martin said...

That's awesome. he is so funny. What's even funnier is that there are women around the world whose husbands actually DO look like Cleetus.

Love the picture of you by the pumpkins. Cleetus is a little scary!

Veronica said...

Okay. Like I visited your Blog, left comment, on Halloween afternoon. Went to a party at friend's and "Ma & Paw" showed up! You have to visit my Blog to understand. The irony of it all!! I think "Cleetus" is my future "nephew." Visit and you'll see what I mean! LOL

Kass Martin said...

Hey Liz. I read your comment and here's what I teach. I teach Hip Hop and Zumba (latin inspired dancing/cardio class) for Golds. I love it. It's a fun workout that goes by quick. It's been fun to teach. Come check it out sometime.

Tautchia said...

Ok... that is stinkin; hilarious!!! How could you look at him with a straight face? LOL! I think I might've had trouble if my cutie hubby all of the sudden looked so... well... hideous. Crazy times, I'm sure!
