What the grinch teaches children

Even though it's still not even Thanksgiving, Emmylou and Miller are all excited about Christmas. I shamelessly fed their excitement tonight and let them watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Right after the ending I asked both of them--who were sitting slack-jawed on the couch staring at the credits-- "so what did that teach you? What is Christmas really all about?"

Their responses:

Miller: "Getting a choo-choo."
Emmylou: "Candy."

At least we have a little time to work on this.

This made me laugh. Hard.

I think it's about roast beast and how to make your dog into a reindeer. Candy would come in at a close third.

I could not fall asleep last night because I was still laughing from their responses. I know what to get them for Christmas!
