One of my neighbor's has a lamp in his front window that is an exact replica of the leg lamp from the Christmas Story.
I almost drove the car into the ditch the first time I passed it, I was laughing so hard. Genius, I tell you. And class.
Adam & I attended a one-year-old's birthday party yesterday. He was so sad to be pulled away from his presents (or at least the wrapping paper) to go and eat his first piece of cake. He had no idea what he was about get into. His life was about to change...forever.
He stared the cake down and hesitantly reached for the it, alternating right hand then left hand, right hand then left hand. Then he dug his hand in for his first bite of oreo cake (or any cake for that matter). And he brought his clenched fist to his lips and slowly, carefully released the delicious chocolate into his mouth and the house filled with his sweet laughter. It was a sight to be seen.
He continued until moments later, he chunked the entire plate into the air and half of the cake landed on his high chair tray (score!) and the other half on the floor (score for the dog!)
Speaking of, I do think that Powers will make a good clean-up crew for our son's messy eating days.
