Funniest Sad Thing Ever: I was sick Friday, but we had some time-sensitive stuff that had to happen that day, and I'm lucky to be married to someone awesome who took a sick day for me and took care of everything. Now, the redhead knows that the 21st is our first day of Christmas break. Which is a Friday. So he got mixed up, figured it's Friday, Dad's home, must be the 21st! Almost Christmas! Aaron caught him trying to 'catch up' on his chocolate advent calendar, eating all the treats until day 21. Poor buddy, he was SO upset that Christmas was still 10 days away! SO upset. We did our best to comfort him, but we were also laughing.
All the kids are into Dilbert comics right now. We have about 7 of these books checked out from the library. I'm sure it's all really relatable to their workplace situations.... ?!! Seriously, though, I can't figure out what the kiddos are getting from this.
I found this awesome post on Geekdad last week, and showed the kiddos all of the little movies (Ghostbusters is by far the best one - so cute!), which led Monkey to playing/singing Ghostbusters. And this is on our front door.
At least he used good tape for it... but our neighbors are wondering what the heck we're up to... (sidenote: we noticed Ghostbusters was on netflx a couple months ago, so in a fit of nostalgia, watched it with the girl. Besides the happy 80's vibe of the opening scene (I remember roller skating to the theme song at CalSkate), can I just say that that movie is awful? Way worse than I remembered, plus much more crude. So, no, the boys aren't watching that anytime soon. Not worth it.)
My parents were lucky enough to score tickets to the Tabernacle Choir concert (with Alfie Boe and Tom Brokaw) and took the girl and I with them. Um, it was amazing. Alfie Boe singing 'Bring him home' was INCREDIBLE. Holy moly. And we were also entertained by the movie screen sized teleprompter in the back. Because you never want to forget the words to Jingle Bells.
We're going back to Temple Square next weekend with the whole fam to see the lights - they were gorgeous, as always.
I have a spicy pot simmering on the stove - we love to do the citrus + cinnamon + clove simmer - my house smells yummy.
And now I'm off to Walgreens, for cough medicine, extra wrapping paper, and chocolate for the mail-lady, since I didn't tell Aaron it was for her, and he opened her Toblerone.
