"If we can't open presents before Church, can we at least eat all the candy in our stockings?" ~Drama
"Is a turkey even supposed to look like that? Maybe it's upside down.... what kind of grown woman doesn't know what a turkey is supposed to look like?!" ~Me
"And that's it. Short and sweet, just the way I like it" ~DH (when ending the Christmas Morning sermon he gave at our Church Service
"We're not wishing adult Jesus happy birthday. We're wishing Baby Jesus happy birthday. Cause he was a baby when he was born!" ~my dear friend explaining why Jesus Birthday Cake said 'Happy Birthday Baby Jesus').
"You're not allowed to cry (Monster), Christmas is about JESUS" ~Drama
"But.... I don't have a 3DS......" ~Freckles (after opening the game for the 3DS before the actual 3DS his uncle gave him).

"How did you get it on the COUNTER?" ~DH, when coming across Monster's unfortunate incident in my in laws bathroom.

"I'm....(sniff)......just......(sob)......soo.......(tear)....tired.....(cry)...." ~Drama (when asked why she was crying while she was already in bed after celebrating East Coast New Years at 10 p.m.)
"Wow, this game must be pretty new if there is already a Big Bang Theory reference!" ~Me (while playing Apples vs Apples, forgetting entirely that there is an actual, you know, Big Bang theory that is not related to the television show...)

"I know it's hard to recognize me, what with my epic beard". ~DH to our friends we saw while on Christmas vacation with family.
"No, we're actually NOT sure where we are posted too. You see........" ~Us. All the time. To everyone. Every day.
And what was it all about? Well, DH gave the (short, as I mentioned earlier) message on Christmas Day at our Church. He summed it up pretty nicely.
That Jesus came to us, while we were still enemies with God, and gave himself for us that we might be called God's friends.
He came to die for His enemies, that we might become His friend.
Love, my friends. It is about Love.
And let me tell you. I am blessed with so very much of it around me.
Hoping you all had a Merry Christmas and are looking ahead to an amazing 2012!
It's time for this family to get their bloated bellies on the road back home.
