True Story Tuesday "Kissmas Is Ober!"

Confession: I did plan our Christmas outfits around my pink Santa hat I got at the beginning of December. This picture turned out cute but I wish we would have turned the TV off before we took it. They were watching a Muppet Christmas movie. I don't know about anyone else but between taking Christmas down and finding places for all of my kids Christmas presents there has not been a lot of blogging time. Here is a story that happened yesterday between me and my youngest. Madison is two years old.
Yesterday, Madie was taking a nap while I took down all of the ornaments off the tree and then was up playing while I put away everything else. (Madie is my very meddlesome child that is like a bull in a china shop around breakable stuff.) She watched me take down everything and put it away. She even watched me vacuum and clean. Then when it was all done looked over at the empty space where the tree had been and gasped, "Where da twee?" I answered. "We took it down." Then she demanded, "Put it back up!" I laughed telling her Christmas was over and it was time to take it down. "Kissmas is not ober !" She began crying. "Put da twee back!" She wailed. "I love Santa! I love him! Put the twee back up! Kisstmas is not ober!" She was working up to an all out two year old drama fit. I picked her up and told her, "Well, if Christmas is not over then we can not ever have your birthday." She stopped in mid fit and wiped her tears away. "My bithday? Yea! My bithday!" She laughed jumping off my lap and bounced into our bedroom where her daddy was and announced,"Daddy!Kissmas is ober! It's ober." Making the motion in front of her like an umpire calling a runner safe. She has spent today telling everyone she sees that "Kissmas is ober."
