You tell me something lovely and I'll tell you things I've recently discovered. Deal? OK, go.
Wait, this isn't working quite the way I'd planned. Um...let's see. OK, I'll share some things then you can leave me lovely comments. Deal? OK, I'll go.
Thing #1- Christmas is still Christmas even if you have left over Chowder for dinner. Or pancakes and bacon for dinner. Or Chex mix for lunch. I decided to save myself the trouble of cooking a big dinner when everyone would just throw a fit & demand hot dogs instead. And you know what, I couldn't care less. A huge family dinner would be nice, but it's not necessary.
Thing #2- Despicable Me is hilarious. And Ramona and Beezus made me laugh, too. Kids' movies in general make me happy. I think I'll switch genres tonight & watch the A-Team, though. I need to see something explode.
Thing #3- I can pick out awesome gifts if you're a 3 year old or 9 year old girl. Especially if you've been convinced you're not getting the Moxie Girl you asked for 6 months ago. I wish I could have captured BabyGirl's face on film this morning as she opened her gifts. She rarely shows excitement, but she was bursting at the seams this morning. And your 3 year old will probably like the $5 gift more than anything else you bought her...except for her Pillow Pet.
Thing #4- My house isn't really big enough for RC Monster Trucks. But that's not going to keep my husband from getting them for the boys or keep my boys from ramming them into the furniture until they're put away for a nicer day when they can go outside.
Thing #5- As much as I hate being snowed in, I really love looking out the window and singing White Christmas with my daughter as the fat flakes float down.
Thing #6- Your husband getting you exercise stuff for Christmas does not always mean he thinks you're fat. Sometimes it just means he listened & wanted to surprise you. I got Zumba for our new Wii...and I love it.
Thing #7- I do not hate Justin Beiber. Which is good since BabyGirl will be listening to his acoustic CD for the next month straight.
Thing #8- Pfefferneuse do not survive long in my house. Especially not when my little brother comes to visit.
I hope you all have enjoyed your Christmas. God bless us, everyone.
