finding baby jesus

gotcha with my title HUH?

well today is 3 Kings Day
and don't think that I am an expert on this
because FRANKLY I am NOT
BUT I do KNOW that
my sweet sweet custodian
Jesus (hey-soos)
not to be confused with Jesus (JE-zes)
which has been done and I did it...

(go on a bird walk with know a random squirrel)
anyways a few years ago
I went up during the summer and saw a huge box in the work room that said
"Jesus (JE-zes) take this recycling out!"
I was so offended...
really in the amount of time it took that person to write that note
they could have taken that box and their behind to the recycling
i went to my buddy Shawna (as i often do)
to complain about this TACKY Jesus (JE-Zes) note
and she started laughin at me because
as she said
"FARLEY it is not JESUS (JE-ZES) it is Jesus (hey-soos)"
it said
Jesus (Hey-soos) take this recycling out!
Oh my gosh!!!!

after the confusion of Jesus/Jesus
I started calling our custodian Mr. Jesse
anyways he did this really sweet thing and
brought in 5 Kings Cakes or breads today to celebrate
and in each cake was a baby Jesus...
each hallway and the office had their own cake...
really not so much cake and more like a bread ring
a very colorful and pretty bread ring
very similar to the Kings Cakes back in my home state
of the 'SIPP (or Mississippi... yes I am a true Southern girl)

anywho very similar to the mardi gras Kings cake but not

*back on track****again***
we had fair warning about this
sweet sweet gesture a few days ago
and I was super STOKED about finding baby Jesus
I mean who doesn't want to find baby Jesus

well long story short
all baby Jesus
were found before we got in there
I mean how can the green hall's cake
already have a slice missing
if  not one of us got our slice
and how does that one sliver
just per chance have the baby Jesus in it

I feel cheated out of my chance to get a baby Jesus
all day i was kinda upset about this

I know I know let it go Farley

I think it might be more of the fact that the green hall baby Jesus
did NOT go to a GREEN HALL resident
I mean that baby Jesus was meant to be a green hall resident too
my green hall needs a baby Jesus!!!!

but in the spirit of this great gift
and to support my one little word effort
(my word is polish)
I would like to leave you with this

for all of you that did not find baby Jesus in your Kings cake
that is OK
you can't have your cake and a baby Jesus too


  1. God, I love you! (just thought your post needed a little break from Jesus ;) ) haha but seriously. You're awesome!

  2. P.s. I'm battling Kristin for first comment! Boo-yah!

  3. That is so sweet that he brought y'all cakes!

  4. Oh My Word!!!! I Can Not Breathe!!! Farley you are so freaken' hysterical!!!! Seriously girl you are my hero! I want to start a petition to have a Farley reality show!!! Really! I'm on it!!! Reading your posts ALWAYS brightens my day (or night). Thanks for keepin' it real!

  6. If it makes you feel any better, the tradition is the one who finds the baby has to throw a party.

    That's $$$$$$.

    They never do it.

    But they're supposed to.

    You should make them.

  7. How sweet of Jesus to bring y'all a 3 Kings' cake...or Rosca de Reyes. My parents always buy some to share as a's a great tradition...and my kiddos and I love it!

    Don't hate me...but this year I got the baby Jesus! It made heart happy!

    I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    P.S. Thanks for the laughs!

  8. So funny about the Jesus/Jesus confusion and the box!

    H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S post Farley! I loved the squirrel walks the most!

  11. I'm crackin' up and feeling jealous that you can have baby Jesus and a cake and we can't have Santa or birthday cupcakes. Booooo!
    Happy 2012!
