Getting into the spirit!

With twenty minutes before the Ward Christmas party, my kids reminded me that I needed to pull something together for a costume. They had a choice of either an angel, a stable animal, or a Shepard. I told the kids I would try my best with stuff I already had in my crazy craft stuff. I think they turned out pretty darn great.

My little angel also cut 8 inches off of her golden locks. The mommy wasn't really thrilled. She seems to be so excited to have this choice and change. I am a hairdresser and I must remember that hair grows. It is really cute on her. Daddy likes it short, and the littles love it!

Gator went as a donkey. He brayed like the best of them. He had to have a tail to shake, and he totally rocked his hat for all of ten minutes before the little performance and ten minutes after. I have to admit I was impressed with my mad-costume-making-skills. That was fast!!!

Gator also says the funniest things sometimes. I have to laugh at him. Like the other day I was working at the computer and I decided it would be fun to have a little music playing. Pretty soon Gator comes just a-bee-bopping in to the office. He was trying to snap his fingers and he was totally shaking his booty... He says to me. "Great tune mom, who sings this Katie Perry?"..... What the? Where does he get this stuff? I start to laugh and he runs out embarrassed and says..."double drat"..... Silly boy.

Then I asked him to please not wear his shoes on the new carpet (are you being raised in a barn or something?) and he told me..." I am'nt" I said to him "I'm not" and he sighs heavy and says "That is what I said... I am'nt"..... I didn't have the heart to fix it again.

On a car ride home we could smell a squished skunk.... "That is one p-ewwie stunk!"

Munchie loves the Christmas tree. I have to watch her pretty close when she gets near it!

It is just too tempting!
