Building a Chimney for Santa

MK has been VERY worried about how Santa is going to get into our house as we do not have a fireplace/chimney for Santa to use. She has asked about a "ceiling" several times. It took me several days to realize she meant "chimney" and not "ceiling."

Today, the kids and I built a fireplace for Santa to use. - Family, Christmas Fireplace
Now, Santa doesn't have to break any windows or doors.

MK is getting married?

Friday night, R and I went to his work Christmas Party and left the kids with my parents for a sleepover. The kids have been asking for a while now when they are going to see Grandma and Boppi, so I called up my mom to let them know they have been missed and, wow, wouldn't you know it? The kids just happen to need a sitter for Friday night and can't they come over?  It worked. My mom mentioned that their ward Christmas party was that night and they'd take the kids with them.

MK had been wearing one of her princess dresses ALL DAY. I worked Friday and she went to daycare wearing her Cinderella dress-up dress, her crown, and one glove. (She could only find one.) She also brought her dress-up shoes to wear while there. She didn't change out of this on the car ride to the grandparents. And she didn't change when it was time to go to the Christmas party.

While R and I were at his party, I rec'd the following text accompanied with a Cinderella dressed MK sitting on Santa's lap.

Msg: MK asked Santa to marry her!

Yes--you read that right. MK wanted Santa to marry her. I got the full story the next morning when I picked up the kids. According to my mom, the conversation went something like this:

MK: Santa, will you marry me?
Santa: (completely stunned) I think I'm a little old for you.
MK: Oh
Santa: One day, you will meet your Prince Charming and marry him.
MK: Okay.

Christmas Music

While we put up the Christmas Tree we had to have some Christmas music.
I found this CD while out shopping.
Phineas and Ferb Christmas CD
We (as in the entire family) are big fans of this show.
Phineas and Ferb is a HILARIOUS cartoon on Disney Channel we all get into.  If you've never seen this, look it up. You'll love it.

Oh Christmas Tree!

We finally got our Christmas tree up. So, it's really starting to feel like Christmas.
Once we put it up, S asked R if he could put up his train around the tree.
S has an extensive amount of GeoTrax, which he quickly assembled around the tree. - Family, Christmas
