With Christmas around the corner, we’re beginning to get a few chuckles from Joelle about some of the holiday traditions:

* She told me tonight that, “The turkey comes to town so we can eat.”  I think she’s confusing Santa “comin’ to town” with the Thanksgiving turkey tradition.

* Running in the room holding a reindeer, she announced, “This must be frosty.  He has white feet.  We need to paint his nose red.”

* At school, the teacher asked the kidoes what they were thankful for.  All of the answers, literally all of the other answers, were “family, baby sister, pet, etc.”  Joelle’s answer:  “presents and birthdays.”  At least she’s honest!
