Dinosaur Tacos

It has been such a busy weekend full of Christmas packages, birthday parties, Christmas card pictures (thank you, Holly!) and family movies in the basement. And tonight, I finally have all our Christmas cards stuffed and ready to send out. So I just now snuck the girl out of bed, threw her in the car with me and we drove through Christmas-light lit downtown to drop them all in the mailbox at the local post office. On the way home, Anna, out of the blue, asked me...

Anna: "Mommy, do you know how a dinosaur makes a taco?"

I, of course, answered in the negative.

Anna: Well, the Tyrannosaurus takes a big taco shell, puts in a human, adds a little cheese and eats it. Easy!

I don't know about you, but I'd like mine with a side of guac.

**Holly took this picture of Anna this weekend in between family photo shoots.

What a cutie pie! I love the way she thinks. On the way to school the other day Kalei saw a huge group of geese out in the field and she said to Kaulani and I "look the geese are having a meeting and that one must be in charge because he is the tallest". Happy Monday!

Hey Sister McIllece! It's Jeff Sherrill. I have been trying to get a hold of your husband for a while since I am going to be talking to the Air Force ROTC soon. I was hoping the Major could give me some advice. If you could ask him to call me that would be awesome! My number is 402.570.1069.... Sorry to leave this as a comment but I didn't see a place to email you. THANKS!

Hi Amber~
Good job on getting the Christmas cards off! Your daughter is so cute, and I think her little dinosaur taco joke is pretty clever. Although I think I'd pass on them, too! :)

I hope you are having a good week so far! :)
