Funny quote of the day

The kids got a perfect day today.  They spent about 7 hours with all their grandparents at the same time.  We went out to lunch, made Christmas cookies, and acted out the nativity with everyone taking part.  Three kids and seven adults means we all got to have a major part.  As soon as we were all decked out in our costumes, there was a knock at the door.  Mind you, we were all in the living room so there was no chance of secrecy.  Mom took off her angel costume/towel and opened the door. It was Mom and Dad's next door neighbor delivering goodies.  She said "Merry Christmas" and then asked if Dad (Joseph in a bathrobe) was feeling ok.

As a bonus, here is Kyle's hippie wise man mama bearing a gift of chocolate to the baby Jesus.

Packing for Christmas

We are going to Grandma's house for Christmas and the kids are pretty excited.  They couldn't wait until Saturday to start packing and Johnny told me he was ready to go.   I am glad I is what he had packed:

3 ties (he never lasts more than a half hour with a tie on)
1 Sunday shirt
6 pairs of underwear
1 pair of socks
5 pairs of pants

Yup.  But to his credit, I think he ran out of room for shirts.  He had a whole pile of t-shirts in the middle of the floor.  Silly kid.
