“Who was there?”
“Sydney and a whole bunch of people I did’nt know.”
“Yeah, but I was nice to them anyway.”
“Yeah, daddy and Jesus said I had to be.”
It has begun. The Gremlin woke up at 5:15, 5:45, 6:00, 6:30, and 6:45am this morning asking about the presents under the tree.
To attempt to distract him, I put on The Empire Strikes Back. The Gremlin recognized several of the ships and was really enjoying himself when he started yelling. I managed to catch this:
However, once the movie ended, the Gremlin started up again, and drove the Mother and Father of the Gremlin so crazy we decided that it would be better to open presents before the Christmas Eve trip to California. With Grandma on Skype, it was only the beginning of what I’m sure will be a story-laden Christmas.
Merry Christmas, everyone!

“Oh, she’s fancy!”
“Fancy? Why do you think she’s fancy?”
“Because she’s so beautiful!”

The Mother of the Gremlin was making breakfast the other day when she came into the kitchen to see the Gremlin, chair up to the stove, waving his hand over the pancakes. The action was confusing for her, until she realized he looked like he was trying to get a spice out of a shaker.
“What are you doing buddy?” The Gremlin looked up at the MOTG, surprised.
“Momma, I’m adding love to daddy’s pancakes!”
“What about mine over there?” The Gremlin looked over his shoulder.
“Nope, those are good.”
Favorite Toy of the Week: Legos
(Quote: “I want them ALL – I don’t have enough!”)
“I can’t lift that, it makes my pants button pop!”
The Gremlin was playing Legos the other day and I noticed something.
“Why does that Police man have a peg leg and two hooks for hands? That doesn’t seem like it would be useful in a Police situation.”
“Because that’s how God made him. God ran out of Lego hands and had to give him hooks.”
