Rocking around the Christmas Tree (Woah!)

Merry Christmas everyone! We hope your Christmas has been blessed. We've been having a great day. The major highlight surrounds the big present we got for Aaron and Sammy--a mini electric guitar "Pee Wee Les Paul".

There are two different videos, one of each kid on the guitar. Sammy jammed first, and he rocked! Then Aaron got on next and totally blew us all away. I don't know where he got his moves--he's really only seen Alvin and the Chipmunks! He just kept playing for about 10 minutes and I boiled it down to the best 1 minute. Both boys gave new meaning to "Rocking around the Christmas Tree"!

(P.S. I'll be teaching both boys to play now that they have the guitar).

Fun with the Dunns on the Vander "Chute"

Hey, here's something else you can do with a shovel besides clear snow--and something to put all of that 3 feet of snow to use! Here it is, the Dunns, our church friends and neighbors, brought the kids over to try our latest sled run "chute". Just about everybody took at least one run, even my mom, brave soul! (Sorry we didn't get any footage of Mike sledding). Kids were getting pretty radical with wall rides on the ending berm, that is until... Well, all's well that ends well. Makes all of the snow hassles worth it.

Instant "Let It Snow" (just add lightning)

Here's my contribution to the craziness of the big snow storms we've been experiencing (which even included lightning, so it's possible with snow). A new variation of "Let It Snow". Sing it to the kids for a good chuckle. Best sung with a loungy feel, and maybe add sound effects for extra impact. It all started when I accidentally sang the word "frightning" instead of "frightful" in the first line...

Oh, the weather outside is frightning
And I just got struck by lightning
And since I'm starting to glow
See me glow, see me glow, in the snow

My eyeballs, well, they’re a-popping
And my hair is all a-sparking
And I feel like I’m gonna blow
See me blow, see me blow, in the snow!

Why does everything seem so bright?
And why do I feel so warm?
All I did was go fly a kite
In an electrical storm!

Well, I think I’m probably dying
‘Cause my brain is slowly frying
You better run before I explode!
See me glow, see me blow, then explode
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Merry Christmas, Josh and Evie

The boys say Merry Christmas to their friends Joshua and Evette who moved to Texas. They sing "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" too. Enjoy.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

So I'm putting up Christmas lights on the highest point of the house (a few minutes before this picture) and my boys are steadying the ladder for me. The neighbor girl calls over to them, but my oldest says, "I can't talk, my daddy might die right now!"

P.S. Do these pajamas make my bottom look fat?
