Thanksgiving Activities

Here are the main Thanksgiving activities at my parent’s house:

My Mom Sent Me A Funny

A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:
When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said very cheerfully, ‘Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn’t this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?’

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Thank you, Mom.

It’s Christmas?

First of all, I don’t care if we are in a recession, Christmas time doesn’t occur until the day after Thanksgiving. ONE HOLIDAY AT A TIME!!!

We have to come back home from Urbandale early this year since Parker has an indoor soccer game at 9:30 am on Saturday.

For my family, who always ask for a list, it is available here. Each person’s list is on a separate sheet that can be clicked on the bottom. I have already purchased a Nintendo DS for each kid. They will need various accoutrement for those. I have a few listed, but Gamestop gift cards would be fine so they can pick their own things.
