A Short Photo Series by Dan-El

Oh, you want to take a picture of us? That's nice.

Jak-El too? How sweet. And the shadow over part of the image--how artsy!

Okay, that's enough. Give me the camera. We don't need photos of the TV, no matter how cool Jak-El is telling you it is...

No, we're done. Give me the camera....

...'cause I'm gonna take some pictures now!

Hey! What do you mean I'm done too?

No, stop! Gimme that! I....hey! What...

Okay. Now I'm done.

Ho Ho Ho

This weekend, we made our annual trip to the mall to see Santa. And as with tradition, Dan-El sat on Santa's lap, while Jak-El wanted absolutely no part of it.

He was however, happy to pose near Santa's village.

He also insisted on having his photo taken with the Ronald McDonald statue.

(the next morning, as we walked to school)

Lois: So what was your favorite part of the weekend?

Dan-El: Going to see Santa and getting a milk shake.

Lois: That's nice.

Dan-El: Someday, I want to go see Barack Obama.

Lois: Um, you know that he doesn't go to the mall and pose for photos like Santa, right?

Dan-El: Oh.....I want to go see an anteater.

Why It's Realllly Good That I've Started Taking the Boy to Church and Sunday School, Before I Cause Any Serious Theological Damage

Jak-El: Mom, now that I know what Christmas is about, what is Easter all about?

(what goes through my head:)
Well, Jesus dies. But it's okay. It's kind of like when Doctor Who regenerates into...

(what comes out of my mouth:)
Um....let's wait until after Christmas to talk about that, okay?
