"How is Christmas regarded today? The legend of Santa Claus, the Christmas tree, the decorations of tinsel and mistletoe, and the giving of gifts all express to us the spirit of the day we celebrate; but the true spirit of Christmas lies much deeper than these. It is found in the life of the Savior, in the principles He taught, in His atoning sacrifice--which become our great heritage."

Holy Crap, it's a heart

I made the kids pancakes for breakfast this morning. I surprise them and either add something special to the batter (banana's, choc. chips..) or make shapes. Today I made heart shaped pancakes and had them set on the table. I called Zack to come eat. He came in and sat down, looked at his plate and exclaimed, "HOLY CRAP! IT'S A HEART!!!"
At least he didn't comb Taylors hair with his syrupy fork today :)

Zack knows a funny word!

We were riding in the car the other day and Zack announces that he knows a funny word. "OH NO, and I cringe inside". "What's the funny word Zack?" "POKA-DOT!" "That is a silly word! (whew!!!!!)" So we are riding along, and he is repeating poka-dot and repeating and repeating it. Then he announces he knows ANOTHER funny word. Not worried this time, I smile in the rear view mirror at him and ask what his other funny word is. "SH*TNUT!!!" Ya, have to admit it really IS a funny word! :)
