ROFL--I love my husband!

He cracks me up! I know, I'm "delighting in evil" here, but it was good.

My husband went to Moxie Java (my very fave coffee place! http://www.moxiejava.com/ ) this morning after dropping the kids off to get me my favorite coffee (white chocolate mocha with a shot of caramel) for a surprise. They were apparently quite busy, and John was behind a woman purchasing 13 gift certificates for $10 apiece. They only had very simple gift certificates instead of gift cards, so it was taking a bit of time to handwrite each and every certificate.

The customer was quite rude, saying repeatedly that "I should've just gone to Books-A-Million to buy gift cards! Obviously this was a bad decision! I have to be at the school building by 8am!" and other similar sentiments.

The counter girl was working so hard, scribbling as fast as she possibly could and trying to courteously help the woman, saying things like, "Well, we're so glad you chose us! I'm sure your gift certificate recipients will LOVE their gifts!" Nope. The woman had no patience or Christmas Spirit at ALL.

She kept being rude, and finally my husband spoke up in his soft, drawl:

"No ma'am, you didn't make a bad decision. Books-A-Million doesn't even open up until 9am."

LOL--that shut her up! There was no way she could've gotten gift cards and been at the school building at 8am when BAM doesn't even open until 9am!

Finally, Momma has to step in. Notice me kind of holding Kai's hands still. He's still wired!

Madeline Dances & Twirls . . .

video

I do apologize for the video quality--this was taken from my cell phone during practice. Madeline, of course, is the one with the long, blonde ponytail. She was doing so well that day, I had to capture it. : ) This is her first year to compete in twirling. The previous years were just for recital. I'm so proud of my Maddiepoppet!


How Malachi plays video games . . .

Here's hoping this works. Never posted a video before. I apologize for the photo quality--it was taken on a cell phone.
