Dumbledork NEEDED this posted to the blog. I didn't love it as much as he did. However, watch it and then consider this, Was the chainsaw on or off when it took out his teeth? And also listen to what he catches. The cameraman asks "Typhoid?" Turtleman's answer is great.
Also, all I have been hearing from Dumbleork is this darn yell!

He left the mixer sit beside his bowl on the table and THIS happened!
And ten minutes after that first picture, we have this! I guess he'll never know what happened to Frosty. :( And he's totally missing Twas the Night Before Christmas!

Let me take you back a long time and give you a glimpse of the Kirkpatrick house on Christmas morning. My brothers and I were ALWAYS up at the crack of dawn, as all kids are on Christmas morning. Mom was always easy to wake up (Even if it was never in a good mood!)but Dad took FOREVER (Still does!) Once we would finally get him awake, we would have to wait and wait til he got dressed so we could run down the hall and see what Santa left for us. But NO! We had to wait even longer. Why? He needed to take pictures of the TREE! Not the family around the tree. JUST THE TREE! Even the year it was a bush and not a tree he took a roll of film on it! This is the same tree that has been up and decorated since Thanksgiving weekend. Is it really that different on Christmas morning? And yes, I said a roll of film. This was pre digital camera days, so we had to wait while he "finished the roll up." Then, remember the rewinding of the film before loading a new one? Yep. Waited through that, too.
I have a funny feeling that even though these pictures have already been taken, Mom isn't going to be allowed to touch any presents under the tree until there are 50 MORE pictures snapped! (Really, they could fill an entire photo album with just pictures of trees!) There's also a LOT of pictures of Dad playing with our toys while we just got to watch. But that's another story!
It does look very pretty this year. Thanks Aunt Darla!
It was cold yesterday morning and they wanted me to take a picture of them all in their footy jammies. Of course when I say cold, I mean it was around 25 degrees. When I talked to MelanieWelanie, she was at 3! Yes, 3. I didn't mistype and forget a digit! Although, by lunchtime, her temperatures had climbed all the way up to 11. (Wow! So warm!) I can't wait to visit next week! I'll get a chance to see polar bears and penguins again. Or maybe that's too cold for even those animals.
We're only at 21 degrees right now. Really, if it's going to be this cold anyway, how about some snow?! It's almost Christmas. It's definitely cold enough. SNOW!

Goofy stayed warm. Can you find him? He kept his head down inside the jackets the whole way back to the car. (Wish I would have fit in there...it was REALLY REALLY cold!)

"It's getting really bright in here!"
"It's getting hot in here!"
"It looks like Grandpa's cake."
Oh. And the smoke that was in the air after they were blown out.... Many more candles than the last cake we had here. Many more.
But we also all need to feel bad for Dumbledork. Somehow his fingers were smashed in the office door tonight. Most of the feeling has come back, so that's a good thing. Also, somehow I got the blame for it. OK. So I WAS the one that shut the door. And it was also one of those things where I saw his fingers after it was closing and knew he was going to get hurt but couldn't get the door stopped before it hit him. Do smashed fingers count as a birthday present?

Dippy is moving up to Boy Scouts in February. We went to check out four different Boy Scout Troops, but he has finally made his decision. The majority of the boys were all going to the same Troop (or so we thought). Dippy picked a different one. At Tuesday night's meeting, all of the boys had to tell their Den leader what Troop they had chosen. Two other boys that we like (and like their parents) also picked the Troop Dippy picked. We didn't know this was going to happen. We were under the impression from all of the talk from the Den leader that we were the only ones going there. We are very happy to have these two families to continue on with.
But, do you know what THIS kid said to me on the way out to the parking lot? Are you ready to say, "Awww" now?
He told me that he picked Troop 964 because that is where Dippy is going.

This is using props. They came up with some good ideas. (Dingy's in the striped shirt in case you couldn't find her with her face covered.)
This was the first game they played. The conversation had to be all questions. Dingy and Alyson knocked out a LOT of people. The boy in the front of the other line is the Den Chief for Dippy's Cub Scout den. He's an 8th grader. And yes, Dingy took him out of the game. :)

This is the burn a few days after it happened.

Like the bare feet in the snow on Dingy?
