Two Funny Things Happened Today

videoToday we made [yet again] turkey and all the fixins'. Bored yet? The difference is the eldest asked to roast the turkey. The video is what transpired while she was rinsing it off. [And Linda? THAT is the love seat in my kitchen. Hush up.]

ETA: Pooldad just reminded me - when he told the Squirrel that the turkey needed to be patted dry - before he could get to the word "dry" she started to, I swear, pat the turkey with her bare hands. What, for therapy? Was she burping it. Never a dull moment.

Also today we were wrapping presents for all our friends and family that have birthdays in January that need to be mailed tomorrow and while helping Wallene had this [brilliant?] observation:

Wallene: "Mom wouldn't it be awful if the person who invented wrapping paper didn't know how to wrap a present?"

Yeah, I had no words either.

My kids.

I think like Wallene. Re her question about the person who invented wrapping paper: Just the other day I discovered that the guy who invented LASIK surgery wore . . . wait for it . . . glasses.
