I got a rock

Kaylee chose her gift from GG to open on Christmas Eve.
For months, ever since she saw one at school, she's been talking about geodes and how cool these "rocks with crystals inside" are. Well, GG heard about this and decided to share part of Grandpa Rice's rock collection with her.
As you can see, she was thrilled to receive it – and I was thrilled that something that meant so much to GG is going to be a gift she cherishes for years to come.
Or at least until she sees that doll house Santa is dropping off tonight.
More to come tomorrow I am sure. But for now – Merry Christmas to all.

Can't put anything past a five-year-old

"Dad, what color was Michael Jackson when he was a kid?"

Happy Holidays

From the backs of Kaylee and Sara's heads. (And a mule butt or two.)

It's cold

Dad, look at my arms. I have moose bumps.
Goose bumps, Kaylee. They're called goose bumps.
No dad, these are bigger than gooses.

Quote of the day

"Dad, could you please not put this in your newspaper? I would be so embarrassed."
Best. Quote. Ever.
I only wish I could give you context.
