The girls are cracking us up non-stop, like usual...
Lately, they have been asking us if something is "a good word", or if we shouldn't say it. They keep asking us if shoot is a good word. To which we always answer, "yes". Merrill even overheard a conversation between the two, discussing what are "good words" and what they consider to be "bad words". He said they had settled on shoot being a good word to say. So we hear it a lot these days. Today, while running errands, Ash says, "Mom, what the shoot is this?"
At dinner tonight, Ash couldn't stop smiling. Lynn said to her, "Why are you smiling?"
Ashley replied, "Because smiling's the best!"
Can you tell we have been watching "Elf" a bit too much?
Lynn thinks "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" is hilarious. She makes us go back and re-play scenes over and over again. Then she giggles so hard, she has to say "excuse me", because she lets a few little farts eeek out.
Tonight, for our family Christmas activity that we have been trying to do nightly.. last night we made sugar cookies... tonight we made this yummy treat discovered at bake day, and then feasted upon it while we watched some Disney Christmas cartoon classics. Merrill has loved these since he was a little boy, he was so excited I found them on DVD at Target, ahhhh... love Target! As "Pluto's Christmas Tree" started, he said, "Don't mind if I start to tear up over here... good memories, that's all."
The girls really enjoyed it too. "Mickey's Christmas Carol" will be a family tradition from here on out!
