2010 Christmas Shenanigans, and it ain't over yet!

5:05 AM

We still have a week until Christmas and we've already got a boat load of stories under our belt. This is my four year old in the best Santa costume Ive ever seen! He wanted to play dress up and chose to be a festive Santa. With no Santa gear on hand mom had to do a bit of quick thinking. What do you think? How'd I do?

Turns out that huge green pointy thing you put in your house every December really isn't a Christmas tree after all it a "Multi-level Cat Climber" purrrrrfect for instant climbing fun! Heck, I didn't want those glass heirloom bulbs anyways!

When I hung this up my four year old gasped! "Mom, I know what that is!" I said "Ya its a Mistletoe." Then my five year old looks at me with big wide eyes and said " Mom! your under the KISSY KISS!" Then my hubby came running over to give me a big smooch to the horror of my four and five year old boys. I could just see them thinking "So it does work! Eeeks!" Both my little boys have been trying to stay clear of the Kissy Kiss all month long. If anyone happens to venture under it they are sure to sound the alarm "They are under the Kissy Kiss! They are under the Kissy Kiss!" Running around the house like crazy.

A four year olds philosophy on glitter glue
  • You can never use too much glitter glue.
  • Glitter glue works best when you squeeze it out with both hands  and teeth simultaneously.
  • Don't worry if glitter glue gets all over the place, it will just make the world a more beautiful place.

Somehow my older sister has manage to break two very important things in my house this week, and I'm starting to wonder if they are really accidents. First the woman broke my ceder chest lid in half while helping me put away Christmas boxes and then next thing you know she has moved on to smashing in our glass fridge shelf with a glass casserole dish filled with the nights before noodle-liciousness. I'm thinking the sisters gotta go!
