The other day Reid saw garbage left in a parking lot. "Mom. Some one's been glittering!"
I was busy putting groceries away last week when I noticed the front door wide open and two kids were missing. Reid and Gray were out front with all their snow gear on...standing still, arms out stretched. I snapped at them to come in and never go out front without telling me. Gray replied..."We're being snowmen." Which also explains why every toy they own was dumped out so no floor was showing. Toys= snow. I'll give them one for creativity.
The Toys R' Us ultimate Christmas catalog recently came in the paper which really has the boys thinking about Christmas. It couldn't have come at a better time. I've had some real trouble trying to settle these crazies down since Halloween. But the thought of Santa's elves possibly watching their behavior and sending notes back to Santa has whipped them right into shape. I'll see if I can possibly use this to buy myself three months of good behavior. (It usually works for a little while after Christmas, too.)
And since Christmas is part of our daily conversation... I mentioned that Santa was fat. Parker was upset. "You really shouldn't call him fat. It might hurt his feelings."
