fun with cousins, merry christmas, etc.

it was Christmas a few days ago! we have had a pretty good Christmas.

i got to be in the Christmas program at church, which was pretty fun. "We wish you a Merry Christmas" was definitely my specialty, as it was the only song i really knew the words to. mom and dad were super excited that i sat there and was quiet the rest of the time. i do not know what gave them the idea that i would not be.

we went to my grandpa's house the weekend before Christmas. he is pretty fun. santa sent a letter for me at the post office where he works, so i opened it and read it to everyone. i thought that was pretty neat! it had my name on it, and a stamp, and everything. we watched some westerns, and he let me borrow his UK can cozy. we clinked cans and said "mazal tov!" do not worry; that is just sprite in there. then, we had a duel! i gut shot grandpa. he just was not as fast as me on the draw. you can see him in the background, clutching his gut. while we were there, we went to visit our friends donna and ed. they have a cool globe, and also a magnifying glass. donna was really impressed that i read "union of soviet socialist republics" off the globe, but i really read it as "onion," which made everyone kind of laugh.

the we came home, and there was a gigantic box on the front porch. it was a box of presents from my aunt michelle and uncle jeff! they sent me a big thing of tracks for hot wheels, and a bunch of cars. i supervised while dad put it together. then we crashed the cars into each other!

then the next day, we went to grandma and pappy's house. my cousins came over on Christmas Eve, and we opened presents and played played played! we took turns being good guys and bad guys. even elisabeth played!

on Christmas morning, mom and dad and elisabeth and i opened our presents to each other. betty is getting much better at the opening. she is also a bit of a thief. if you do not share that apple with her willingly, she will just come up and bite it anyway.

peanut butter and jelly

after eating the 1,425th peanut butter and jelly sandwich of my life, i had the following conversation with my mom:

me: i don't like peanut butter and jelly.

mom: what?!? i thought you loved peanut butter and jelly!

me: i like the jelly, but i do not like that butter.

mom: why not?

me: it tastes like monkeys.

isn't that great?!?

so, i find homestar runner pretty inspiring.

it makes my mom laugh when i tell a weird story like this one:

"a monkey fell out of the sky and crashed onto a car. isn't that great?!?"

i got that catchphrase from this masterpiece. saddy dumpington is pretty funny!

Christmas came early?

in my defense, nobody told me i could not open the presents under the tree yet.

my cousin becky

here's a few pictures of becky and i from last week, at grandma and pappy's. we crack each other up.

silver dollar city!

the other day, we went to silver dollar city. dad says it is the last time in a while, probably, since next year we would have to buy 2 season passes, instead of just 1, because i am 4 now. the nice lady let me in for free anyway, because my birthday was monday, and we went on thursday.

it was a good time! the lights were really pretty. i did not ride fire in the hole this time; i just was not feeling it. i did ride the balloons, though, and they were a little bit scary. and of course, the elephants, and the frogs, and the ladybugs. elisabeth even got to ride the butterflies!

it was cold!
