Christmas 2008

It has been a totally relaxing, totally family Christmas. Except for one friend and her son coming to exchange gifts yesterday, it has been just us four, and that's how we wanted it. We took it really easy yesterday, had a nice dinner together, bathed the kids, watched Elf and tucked in. Well, Daddy and Mommy stayed up doing elvish things like wrapping presents and stuffing stockings. Matty was so excited that he woke up at 4:00 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. At precisely 7:00, he woke Molly, marched her into our room and together they shouted, "IT'S CHRISTMAS!"
After their presents were all opened, and we'd eaten breakfast, we just went about the business of playing. It's been a fun, easy, Christmas day...just the way I like it.

Our Budding Musicians

I don't know if it's exactly talent they possess, or just a serious case of the sillies!

Out of the Mouths of Cub Scouts

Glen and Matty came home from a Cub Scout pack meeting the other night with a couple of funny stories. The first was that Glen was the designated guy to get in the Wolf suit (like a college mascot) and go around passing out materials for the pine wood derby. Amusing, yes. More amusing was that he didn't Matty that he was going to disappear for a while. A friend from church whose son is also in the pack came up to him and asked, "Hey, where's your dad?" Matty's answer? "He went to the store to buy some wine." It wasn't until the wolf disappeared and Glen reappeared that Matty made the connection.
