- Getting things done!
- Tracking Santa on Norad.
- Dale gets the gold star of the day. Ken and Dale were having a problem with their new shoe inserts and I made a minor suggestion. Ken said, "Your mother may be right. Sometimes she has those years when she's right." (Ken gets points for that.) Dale responded, "Years?! I'd say decades." Yep - Dale gets a gold star.
- Philip gets the next gold star for the day. I offered him some of the beverage Kristi was preparing and he said, "No thanks. I'm good." Pause. "What is it?"
A wise man declines such an offer from his mother-in-law BEFORE finding out that it's hot apple cider vinegar and water.
- Conversation in Scrivnerburg:
Caleb: If Santa doesn’t come I’m going to get angry.
Mom: Why would you get angry?
Caleb: Because I really want Santa to come.
Mom: But does it fit the spirit of Christmas to get angry if Santa doesn’t come?
Caleb: No. Jesus is the spirit of Christmas, and Jesus is Happiness.
Mom: Are you still going to get angry if Santa doesn’t come?
Caleb – shoulders slumping: No.
