Ben got a turtle neck shirt for Christmas. Ben has never worn a turtle neck shirt before.

Ben: "This shirt is too close to my neck."
Granny: "It's a turtle neck."
Ben: "I'm not a turtle."

It Must Be In The Genes

This video speaks for itself.

Merry Christmas!

Yeah, I know the video is dark, but the children keep the lights off in the living room so you can see the tree better. I stopped this video right before Ben uttered his famous last words.

Once again, Ben has come up with a post worthy idea...

At church, our Sunday night kids program often has a theme for the night. If you participate in the theme by dressing up, you have the potential to win extra "bucks" that can be turned in later for items at the church store. Tonight, after church, Ben was chatting with me about an idea he had for a theme.

"I was thinking we should do "Nekkid Night,"
(I start laughing uncontrollably into my sleeve.)
"Ben, honey, we can't do that."
"Why not? Tonight was pajama night."
"Pajamas are still clothes. We can't go to church without clothes. In fact, when have you EVER left the house AT ALL without clothes?"
"But I was thinking that Nekkid Night would be a good idea..."

Oh Ben. You funny little boy. Your "Nekkid Night" idea may get an "F", but I'll give you an "A" for alliteration.

Flip Mino

It has been requested that I update my blog, so here you go.

Yesterday, I received a great Christmas present in the mail. It was the new flip mino- a compact little camcorder that is targeted specifically to those who want to share their videos on the internet. The camera was quite a hit with me, but the kids are the ones that are really hamming it up. Ben in particular is interested in making and viewing videos. I have three clips here of the children singing their ABCs. If you notice Ben's reaction at the end of the videos, you'll get an idea of what refrain I've been hearing around the house lately. I'm really having trouble recording anything...
