my mom told me to update

Really, my mom just sent me a Facebook message saying, "Update your blog! I just looked at it and it is old and tired now."

Thanks Mom.

I've spent the last week obsessed with making room for the stuff my kids are going to get for Christmas from their grandmas.

And listening to my Pandora station. (More on why it is MY Pandora station tomorrow, maybe.) The kids and I are obsessed with it. We had to pay 99 cents this morning to keep listening because we had listened to all 40 free hours allowed for the month. In other words we listened to 40 hours in just 15 days. When I try to turn it off Clark says, "NOOOO! DON'T TURN IT OFF! You can't! It's CHRISTMAS!" and I sort of agree. Besides I was really only making a move to turn it off because I had started to worry that 40 hours of Christmas music in 15 days might be unhealthy but Clark is learning all the words to all the songs which has to be some form of education right?

If this post were more thought out I would now include a video of us singing "The Merry Christmas Polka" in the style of Dinah Shore, but it is 1am so all you get is the mental image.

I'll try to be less blog-lazy. I don't want to get in trouble with my mom again.

I found this! Now just imagine me and Clark singing instead of The Andrews Sisters.



Unless of course you prefer this version...



"Whoo!"

  1. Ok, i just have to comment on the fact that your cleaning out and making room for all the new toys your kids will recieve from grandparents...i thought i was the only one who worried about things like that! I totally cleaned out the other day, KNOWING that people will be spoiling my son even though i said no toys... :)

  2. This totally made me smile today, thank you! (and my mom does the same thing, except she calls to tell me since she's anti-facebook...)

  3. You are so fun. I am listening to your station now. We've had the Charlie Brown Christmas CD on repeat FAR too long. It's getting dreary in here, good grief!

  4. There is no such thing as too much Christmas music. After all "the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."
