Christmas fun

Joe sitting on Santa's lap at our BX....he was a little big for Santa's lap this year! However, Lily would only peek at him from 3 aisles away. :o)

Lily loves candy canes. She would live on candy canes and pepperoni if I would let her. Throw in a bit of chocolate and she'd be in heaven. :o)

At Tim's middle school on the last day before school let out, each of the 12 homeroom classrooms were responsible for coming up with a carol to sing to the school in an assembly. They drew names to see which class would go first. There were 12 different songs...some by the chipmunks, Australian version of jingle bells, and some kind of song about wanting a hippopotamus for Christmas. Tim's class sang "It's Hard to be a Nissemann". I have a video clip of it that won't seem to load right now...but I'll try it again soon. It's a reggae tune and it's mostly in English with some Norsk mixed in. Nisse are the Christmas elves that they believe in here in Norway. There is no Santa here.
