Then I know its Christmas
Increase in the number of quotes from The Grinch per day, although we do quote it year round. Of course when I say we I mean you.
Back ache, greasy table, dough under my fingernails from the Russian Teacake making assembly.
My brothers complaining about listening to The Osmonds.
Albert Finney in Scrooge. He is kind of a genius. (The Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge would be my favorite Christmas characters. *facepalm*)
All of us trying to guess who each other has for 12 days of Christmas. Trying and usually failing to keep your person a secret.
Watching all the old 50's Christmas specials with Mickey Rooney and remembering how unintentionally creepy they are. When you sit on my lap today, a kiss a toy is the price you pay.
Still to come: chili bread bowls for Christmas Eve dinner, opening new Christmas pajamas, and my favorite part, all of us waking up ridiculously early and waiting in someones bedroom until we can go wake up my parents at 8:00. Maybe that all sounds like I'm 5, but I don't care.
