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.

I hate how this planet is. I will spend the day alone other than getting a few hugs from Helen.

Fruit of the Loom, for everyone - you crack me up, girl.
So how do we know underwear is safe unless they took us seriously when we said "Get the lead out."

Oh, Fruit of the Loom, I like that, it's my favorite brand for undies.

Angel being a reative term and concept, right? ;-)


PS: Did you see I blogged about the one Christmas song you haven't heard yet this year? I didn't want your Christmas to be lackluster without hearing it. Just doin' my part to spread the joy, Ma'am. :-D
