Holiday laughs from our family to yours!

***********************

Alexander: Daddy, how old is Santa?

Daddy: very old, very very old….

Alexander: 70..? Older than yeh-yeh and poh-poh and grandma…? 90..? 100…?

Daddy(busy washing dishes): I don’t know. Why don’t you ask him…write him a letter…

Alexander: I can’t. Brian Williams said we can’t send him letters anymore…

(Note: before this conversation, while we all were watching NBC Nightly News one day, the anchor Brian Williams said that Letters to Santa Program had been cancelled due to some unpleasant replies from Santa…)

***********************

(This conversation took place while we were eating our dinner)

Alexander: Does Santa come to California?

Daddy: Yes.

Alexander:… to United States?

Mama: Of course…. Santa goes wherever there’s children to give them presents.

Daddy: Santa goes everywhere in the world… except North Korea.

Alexander: Why?

Daddy (glanced at Mama across the table): … because they don’t open the door for Santa!

***********************

Besides other toys, Alexander and Ethan both got 2 leapster cartridges each this year for Christmas. When he saw all the cartridges on the floor he said,” Santa stole all the cartridges in the store!“…

Alexander: First baby tooth fell out last Friday. Tooth Fairy gave him $10 (gee… a RICH Tooth Fairy!). He gave the money to mama and daddy to save it for his college fund. Since he got the Star Wars Leapster cartridge he’s been more and more crazy about Star Wars…  asking Richard all kinds of questions related to the movies.

Ethan: We (it’s more mama than daddy) finally decided to potty train Ethan during night time sleeping. To avoid washing bed sheets and blankets everyday like we did with Alexander, we had him put on underpants with a pull-ups to catch the leak. The first night, we took him to bathroom late night but he still got his underpants wet the next morning. But starting the 2nd night, he went to bathroom by himself and the underpants was pretty much dry throughout the night! It’s been like this for 1 week now so cross our fingers… Night potty training with Alexander was extremely painful, so this is a big relief for Richard and myself.

When there’s good thing, there’s the bad: Ethan has been extremely bad behaving lately, refuse to listen and/or very slow getting things done… when will  this bad stage be over?… sigh!

Audrey: Audrey was slow at crawling… didn’t start until 10 1/2 months old. But after she knew how to crawl, she picked up fast and now she’s crawling everywhere fast! She can now crawl up the stairs and pull herself standing up unassisted. Audrey can also cruise a little bit (1-2 steps) and wants to walk! The little sister wants to be with her brothers very much, but the boys always move her somewhere else or close the door on her (as Audrey always messes up their toys)… poor little Audrey doesn’t like it at all and here comes the tears…
