Weekend update...and Kennedyisms.

At Kennedy's school they had a Christmas concert. She has been singing Christmas songs all around the house and it has been highly entertaining. And very cute.

Here she is singing as one of Santa's elves.


She then turns the hat around and magically becomes a reindeer with a red nose. Adorable.

She did such a good job that I rewarded her with what every woman wants:


(Now don't be fooled by the appearance of my generosity. I only gave her the spatula - I licked the entire bowl.)

And in turn, she was kind enough to share a few Kennedyisms with me, which I will now share with you:

[after fixing a broken guitar]
Dad: Who's the man!??
K: You. And who's the little kid??!?


K: I want a different name. I want to change it.
M: Really? What would you like to change it to?
Dad: Matilda?...
K: YES! Matilda! I want you guys to call me Matilda, now.


[I was talking on the phone and she heard me say something about "Texas"]
K: Hey! I know what Texas is! It's where squirrels live!!
(On "Spongebob" there is a squirrel who is from Texas...)


Alright, on with the updates of my electrifying life.

Saturday night we went to an "ugly sweater party." Justin amiably picked them out for us:

Justin looked like Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber, and I looked like a relief society president (or, as my brother would say, "re-LEAF" society...).

We also had a white elephant gift exchange, and Chris won the present that we brought:

Yes, my friends. It even comes with a mustache.

I have absolutely loved the chatty calls I've received from Kennedy (I mean Matilda) this week. She is such a crack up.... non-stop entertainment.

Love the sweaters. I swear I've seen that one you're wearing before......

Sarah said...

I can't believe it! You're little Kennedy isn't so little anymore! She looks so big singing with her class.... but she's still just as adorable.

and I couldn't stop laughing when I saw your ugly sweater pic. You totally nailed it with the Dumb and Dumber look and RS pres :) Too funny!

Lauren said...

That elf/reindeer hat is such a cute idea! I just might have to use that next year...

Brandon Pearce said...

I love the hairdo as well. As soon as I saw it, it totally reminded me of mom because she used to do her hair like that. lol.
Yes, I'm so glad we have the Re-LEAF society, or we would never see Spring. Who else would have the patience to put the leaves back on the trees?

Jennifer said...

Kennedy is so funny. Who's the little kid?!!

Those clever teachers and their Christmas programs...Kennedy makes a cute little Rudolph.

That white elephant gift is simply amazing. Way to go.

I am also impressed by Justin's skills in finding ugly sweaters. Very nicely done.

I love the hats! She is just too much fun sometimes.

Chris said...

That dude with the sombrero is cracking me up. lololol.

Ashley Rae said...

@Chris- the funny thing about our friend is that he went to Mexico on his mission, so he was rambling off spanish sentences which made it even more comical...
