Dingy babysits a lot like her Grandma!!! She 'says' he did it himself! Right, Dingy!

Rod and I went over to the Verizon store this morning. His phone did something funky and wouldn't turn on. The guy at the store said he had never seen the error message before. Leave it to Rod to be the first to mess up a phone THAT bad!! Luckily, the phone is under warranty, so all is well there. Anyway, on the way over, Rod was driving along and said, "I smell mustard." Really? That's not exactly something you hear people say everyday. I remembered that he had a ham sandwich for beakfast. I said, "It's probably from your breakfast. You probably dripped mustard on your shirt." Then for the heck of it, I looked at him. I WAS SO RIGHT!!! Look at that!! A big ol' glob of mustard right on the front of his shirt!!! Just can't take him anywhere!

Well, our trip to Grandma's has gone from being postponed to being cancelled. Rod has had to work all week AND go to the dentist THREE times!!! Now he's getting the sore throat that's going around. So I guess we're going to try to do our Christmas trip later in January. To cheer eeveryone up.....cause I know you're all disappointed you won't be graced with our presence....Widget made a video for you. Enjoy.
He decided he didn't need his Daddy. He can entertain himself!
MelanieWelanie bought us games for the Wii. We can connect through the internet and play together, too. It's pretty cool. And addicting! Dingy and I each have a character on the game and Goofy would go in and play as me. One day I decided to make him his own character so he could play and I wouldn't have to worry about him spending my 'money' or rearranging my house. (Which he did quite frequently!) Anyway, one day, I was watching him play and he did this rolling thing, which I videoed to send to Melanie, but it was too big to send as a text so she never saw it. Then, a couple of days ago, I was playing with Melanie. She got on a bed and did the EXACT SAME THING!!!!

We had to postpone our trip to Grandma's house. Again. I had no food in the house since I was planning on leaving by today. So we went out and bought a bunch of junk food! (I did buy some stuff to make dinner stuff, too.)
Anyway, I asked Dippy if he could put a few cans of soda in the fridge. He did. Then I turned to see THIS on the table!!

Widget was very excited about the 'stuffed' stockings this morning. He pointed and smiled and even climbed up on the chair to try to get to it!
Dingy had a little Christmas adventure this morning. Santa left her a card on the tree this morning. The card told her that she was going to have a little Christmas morning fun. To find her gift, she had to follow the clues on the cards. The first card sent her upstairs to the coat closet. The clue in the coat closet told her to go to her parents' bedroom. There, the clue told her that her present might be in or near her puppy's pen.
Thanks Grandma Dao and Grandpa Gary from Kirk!! The game in his left hand, he has been wanting for months! He was most excited about seeing that present out of everything he got this morning.
Many years ago, we started taking the kids to see a movie on Christmas Eve. Then, when Goofy was around 1 and 1/2, Rod ended up sitting in the car with him. The next year, we didn't even attempt the movie. We had just gotten back into it when Widget came along. We decided we would give it a try tonight. We went to the 9:00 showing of Arthur Christmas. We were hoping that it would be late enough that he would just sleep. He's also not been feeling great, so we gave him some Motrin before we left, too. (A little extra sleep aid) We got off to a good start.
After Goofy's late bath, he put out cookies, milk and carrots for Santa. Oh, and he baked the cookies himself, too.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

According to Goofy's tree, it's almost Christmas!!!!! We've been coutning down all month. He needs to put on yesterday's, then we have today's, then we can put the gold star on top tomorrow!!! He's been very good about saving the star for the top of the tree.

We FINALLY got the kids to see Santa. I thought we might not make it this year. AND...I got ALL FOUR of them to go!!! I didn't really have to bribe Dingy. I told Dippy I would buy hime a pretzel and he said he wanted two pretzels. To which I siad, fine. You can have two. That's a lot cheaper and easier than I thought it would be!! We went right after school today. The kids only had a half day. I wasn't sure how busy the mall would be in the middle of the day, but we thought we would just go and see what it was like. IT WAS PACKED!!!!! Holy crap it was BUSY!!! Here's the line to see Santa. Can you see waaaaaaay up on the left there are the red ropes? Once you waited that long, then you had the red rope maz to go through!! We waied for about an hour. Widget got a little antsy and we had three different potty breaks, but we made it with very few complaints. I am soooo glad we didn't wait for Rod. He would not have been a happy camper today.
I didn't make a post on Rod's birthdya, but we did celebrate it! He went to PA on his birthday, I think to get away from his burning cake. So we just waited and had his birthday dinner and cake a day late. It took two WHOLE packages of candles to do his cake this year!! And it was HOT and BRIGHT in the kitchen!!
