It’s Christmas Eve!

Sitting at the kitchen table, and the littlest one blurts out, “I want an Eye Patch Touch!”


Too, too funny! 😀

Nail polish

The little one just got in trouble. She got into the cabinets in our “library” (living room) where we keep some of the kid’s games and craft activities. One of those activities is a “spa day”, complete with nail polish.

Yep, nail polish.

Not only did she get it on the carpet (thank goodness it’s WHITE), but she also got it on her lips… Two days before Christmas!

I was like, “you’re not supposed to eat it!”

Chocolate Jelly Juice?

My littlest one just said that at lunch.

“Mmmm, chocolate jelly juice, it’s my favorite!”


I have no idea what it means or where she got it.

Christmas Pageant

[singlepic id=7 w=225 h=300 mode=web20|watermark float=right]Last night we took all the girls (except the oldest, she was working) to our youngest’s Christmas Pageant. It was wonderful and painful all at the same time. Our daughter performed wonderfully, and we got some nice video, except for at the end when all of the other parents lost control of their kids and let them roam through the aisles so they could see.

What is with that? I kept MY girls in line, even though they were complaining that they couldn’t see either.

Then, of course, the video camera we were using ran out of room on the card (because I still need to teach Mee Mee how to get them off there) right before the song that we really wanted to capture. We still got it using our still camera to take video, but it was dark and hard to see. And while I was taking that, I was switching out the card on the video camera.

Again, of course, the card wasn’t formatted for that particular camera, and I had to format it all the while still trying to capture video of the performance (because I live with 5 girls and they don’t know how).

Went and had cookies and punch afterwards. All in all a good time.

Frosty the snore man

Frosty has become our youngest’s favorite movie this year. She watches it three to four times a day, and can almost recite the dialog.

There’s a part in the movie where Frosty and the kids go to the train station to get him a ticket to the north pole, and the ticket counter guy is asleep in his chair snoring. She says, “That looks just like Mee Mee snoring!”

Mee Mee is her grand mother on her mother’s side. 😀

(I must have laughed for about 10 minutes.)

Barbie… naked.

One of the “joys” of being surrounded by girls is getting to inadvertently undress Barbie. The little one just brought me a Barbie and said, “Dad, can you help me get this off?” and handed me a Barbie with a microscopic knot in her dress straps. After what seemed like many minutes, I finally got the knot cleared and Barbie was finally… naked.

Why do little girls always like to play with naked Barbies?

Itchy butt.

So this morning, my butt was itching a little (yeah, I know; I’m ALL class!) So I’m doing a little dance in the kitchen, complaining to the wife about it.

Then the little one wants to play. We find the ball she wanted to play with, and then went to sit down to play, and she says, “No, stand up dad, your butt won’t itch”.


Pixie dust

So this morning, our littlest one found our Elf on the Shelf, who was precariously perched up on one of the curtain rods in our living room.

When I asked her, “How did he get up there?”

She answered matter of factly, “He used pixie dust!”

Personally, I think she’s been watching too much Jake and the Neverland Pirates!
