Eight and Nine

Bag Number 8 - We were instructed to read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," which I got at Kohl's for 5 bucks.
Daphne let Kev open the bag this time.

We enjoyed the story, but there was some controversy because the characters in the book look different than the ones on TV.  The Grinch TV special is pure genius.  Chuck Jones is pure genius.  I hope we didn't miss it this year.  We never know when things are on TV.

Bag Number Nine contained a very homemade Christmas Charades game.  I was worried it would be kind of a lame night, but it was really fun.  Playing charades with Daphne is hilarious.

 Below, she is acting out a popular Christmas character.  We thought for sure it was Rudolf, but we were wrong.

Because Rudolf, which she acted out later, actually looks like THIS:

Notice the difference?  We didn't get the first one until she started doing this dance: it all makes sense!

Today it snowed for a few minutes and then it stopped.  I was glad.  Visions of last year have been dancing in my head, and I don't think I want to go through all that again.  Snow loses its magical quality when it is taller than you and is frozen into a giant iceberg at the end of your driveway.

Daphne was VERY excited about the snow, and tried to play in it.  She had a blast.  Being four and a half is where it's at.

Daphne mime: "Who ahr yuh". You **do** sound like a Texan! :) Or at least, a cowgirl.

Rudolph: Ah. A short (kid) raindeer.

First photo: Daphne looks like a red-headed Tara.
