The next activity was that we would have our own candlelight service to "Silent Night"...so Nana Sally busted out some candlesticks and put the classic Mariah Carey Christmas CD in. We dim the lights, light our candles and press play on the CD player....a nice thought right? All was fine (aside from the sarcastic remarks and eye rolls from Brian & his sister) until the wax from the candles started dripping down onto bare hands (so that's why they always have those paper things on them at church!). These injuries caused people to say things that were not very Christmas-y while they yelped in pain.
Lessons learned from this experience:
1. Always provide some type of protective covering to candlesticks
2. Try to find a short version of "Silent Night" (Mariah Carey's version might be the longest silent night EVER)

"Awww, how nice...you want me to pose in nothing but my diaper and a Santa hat? OK! Oh and a Christmas ornament? Score!"
"What? You don't want me to eat this?? But it's sooooo good! Nom-nom-nom-nom"
"Ok, I'll sit in this chair & look really cute. I won't try to eat the ornament and I'll even give you a nice open-mouth smile."
"Ok, I'm done...I'm so over this sweater vest!!"
"No, I'm serious....take this ridiculous looking outfit off NOW!!"
From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!!! :)

Sarcastic, hilarious & mildly offensive in some parts...I loved this book. If you ever watch her show, "Chelsea Lately", the book sounds pretty much just like she talks on there. There were a few parts that I laughed out loud at...unfortunately, I was on the bus so I was a bit embarassed (fortunately, on a bus full of weirdos, laughing out loud by yourself does not attract all that much attention)
