Rainman cracks me up just lounging over there.
A-girl LOVES elephants, so her sisters went in on a huge one for her.
Should I even explain this one, ladies? Aren't we all just married to big kids?
If you are my friend on Facebook, this was the gift you saw me regretting later on Christmas Day. They love these. They are obsessed with walkie talkies. The problem came with them using them while they are sitting in the same room together....with me. I am happy to report that a week out now they have calmed down with using them in that annoying way. They have actually come in handy for me to get a hold of them when they are outside and I need them. I am sure the neighbors appreciate that I am not just hanging out the front door yelling for them!
S-girl got a loom. We are all a little obsessed with it. I have decided I want a big one to make rugs. Obsessed, I tell you.
V-girl decided she wanted to have a Christmas party and made little bulletins for us all.
We also started a new tradition based on an idea we got from a Hallmark movie. It was a Very Merry Mix Up, with Alicia Witt, in case you are wondering. The idea we got was - everyone gets a cup in front of them, and you each write something nice, anonymously, about everyone in the room and then that person reads them aloud and tries to guess who said what. We are doing it again on New Year's Eve, because there were a few people that didn't totally understand the whole "nice" concept. One of A-man's comments for one of his sisters was "Clammy" LOL!
I did a little better than "clammy" with my little slips of paper.
