it must have been the mistletoe
<---Awwww, there's a new little addition to my reindeer family! Isn't he cute?
Holly and I were laying in bed Friday morning around 7ish and we heard a noise on the front porch that startled both of us. She looked at me, and I was like, "Hey, you're the dog. You tell ME if it's something we have to be worried about."
As a mom, may I just say that this lead paint and asbestos scare in toys could not have come at a better time. This is the first year I don't have to strain my brain cells thinking up excuses as to why I can't afford expensive toys. Fruit of the Loom for everyone!
The other night we were driving around looking at the Christmas lights and Female Offspring #7 pointed at the sky and said, "Mommy, what planets do you think those are?" With me being the big astronomy buff, I thought for a few seconds and said, "Well, honey, just a guess, but I think that's Venus. Annnd," I studied the sky for a few more moments, "if my calculations are correct--and I think they are--the other planet would be Saturn."
She turned to Mr. G and asked him what he thought . He said, "They're the lights from the airport, Honey."
Yeah, that was my second guess.
I don't know who thought of the idea of labeling everything brown as "chocolate", but it's pure genius, and a fabulous marketing idea. Call it "gold" and I'm sorta interested. Call it "chocolate gold," and I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!!
Chocolate cell phone? Need it. Chocolate diamonds? Can't live without 'em.
Dear Santa, Please bring me some Chocolate Jack Daniels. I've been an angel all year.
