"Last Christmas..."

Christmas eve I was tucking Brit into bed. We'd had such a fun day!
I had the honor of singing in all three of our awesome church's Christmas Eve services.
Our whole family attended the 5 o'clock one.
We came home to yummy crock pot lasagna. (In our new 8 1/2 quart slow cooker!)
Mrs. Claus had left the kids new pj's under their pillows, just like every year.
We watched Boris Karloff's How the Grinch Stole Christmas right before bed, just like every year.
And now the kiddos were snuggling down.

This little conversation ensued:
Me: So, Brit. What was your favorite part of the Christmas Eve service?
Brit: The sound effects and the video.
Me: Hmmm... so, basically, your favorite part was Jon Egan?
Brit: Yep.

Such an adorable glance into the mind of a ten-year-old girl!
My heart smiled and I couldn't help but laugh.
Brit laughed, too.

The hilarious video YOU MUST WATCH that has moved this song to an everyday singing occurrence at our house:
(Jon also did the "sound effects" during the reading of The Night Before Christmas, which I think has convinced at least half of my children they need to practice odd noises regularly so they, too, can aspire to such a high honor.)

Many thanks to Jon Egan and Rob Stennett (Who read The Night Before Christmas and is the other half of the dynamic Wham duo.) for all the laughter and singing you have (probably unknowingly) brought to our house.
