Merry Christmas



I just put out a plate of cookies for the Man with the Hair on his Jaws, and I'm waiting around for my children, who were put in bed an hour ago, to be REALLY asleep.  There's no good way to wrap a ping-pong table, so we'll just set it up and have it waiting for them in the morning, along with 5yo's longed-for compass, 8yo's recorder, and a few big surprises. 

George Bailey is about to get a sock in the jaw in answer to a prayer.  And I'm about to have another cookie, because if I'm not sick on chocolate by December 26, then I feel that I have not adequately celebrated the birth of the Savior.  For now, I will leave you with 5yo's wish that you have a "Fizz Bah-dee-dah" (Feliz Navidad).  He has been paying tribute to Sr. Feliciano with frequent outbursts of yuletide song. 

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! We were watching George get socked in the jaw here in KC too!

BeckEye said...

you don't get a much better festive song than Fizz-bah-dee-dah I always say. Of course I've usually been imbibing tequila when I say it, I expect 5yo is just being cute. :)

Merry Christmas dahlink!

Fizz-bah-dee-dah is one of our family favorites as well. Merry Christmas - enjoy the squealing.

A recorder? You mean a wooden flute or something he can put in a secret place and collect incriminating evidence?

Best wishes to the clan.

Thank goodness you didn't spend the night building a basketball court in your living room. Table tennis is doable and not likely to add to the decoration destruction inherent in the season. Best wishes for a very Happy Christmas.

Hope your Christmas was very very merry, and that you enjoy the rest of the holiday season!

Fizz-bah-dee-dah was played on the radio about 10 gabillion times on the 25th. My new favorite song :)

Lisa said...

I hope you guys had a great Christmas! Are you over your chocolate sick or are you already on to round 2?

WM said...

Hope your house was filled with lots of little squeals of delight and that you caught a break in there somewhere too!

A belated Merry Christmas and fizz bah-dee-dah to you, too!

I think I need more chocolate... I'm not sick of it yet.

caitlin--I know! Sing it with me.

Carolyn--we always watch it on Christmas Eve! Happy New Year!

BeckEye--You too, and Happy New Year!

Veggie--I know, "Fizz bah dee dah" is also an excellent drinking song.

Lady--You too, and Happy New Year!

Matty--the former. His brain is the latter. :)

Dr. M--you too, and Hoppy New Year!

Susan--that ping pong table was unexpectedly complicated. We opened the box and about 100 separate pieces awaited us. And by "us" I mean "my husband".

Mauigirl--you too!

Suze--Fizz Bah Dee Dah to you too! And Prospero Ano Nuevo.

Lisa--I'm just getting started.

WM--you too! We had a really nice and unexpectedly relaxing holiday.

VS--you too!

It is remarkable, a useful piece

That's the only way I'd listen to that damned song--if your kid sings it.
