Mary Did What??

The Nativity in 2009..

Eloise "Hey mom - we can't figure out who Joseph is."

Me "He is one of the guys."

Eloise "We know that - but there are like 6 guys here, which one is he?"

Me walking into the room "Well, these 3 look like kings or wise men, and these 3 are shepherds - so he must be one of the shepherds."

Eloise "Do we need a Joseph anyway because isn't God really His dad - why isn't God on this thing. Is Joseph really His step dad or what?"

Esther(randomly) "Is this the same Mary that is in the lamb song? I don't think she is married she is just a kid who has a little lamb."

Eloise "Well, I don't we should just use any of these guys without knowing who the real Joseph is. I am not doing it. We cannot just use any Joseph."

Esther "Why don't we just use a different guy each day - the green shepherd today, the blue king tomorrow. They can just take turns with Mary."

Merry Christmas.

Hilarious!! My favorite, "They can just take turns with Mary." So glad I wasn't drinking my coffee when I read that or else it would be all over the computer!

If I were Mary, I'd go for a king.

you are a total nut.

OK, here's my story for you. I've been admiring a t-shirt at jcrew for the last month. It's a large set of beaded antlers-- really gorgeous. It wasn't online so I was thrilled and amazed to find it in the store Saturday for $14.99 (down from $52!) I picked out one for myself and my two 13 year old nieces and was totally thrilled with myself until Erik said, "Nice rack."

Yeah, I won't be giving that tee to my nieces this Christmas, but I still really want one for myself-- it's the only rack I'll have.

Told you I was immature. ;)

Michelle said...

p.s. maybe I'll send one to you too!

Tracy said...

LOL Michelle! Having only a 32aa rack myself, I would love a tee ...lolol
