Taco Surprise Night.

Tonight was a fun night! HHH and I invited Ms. M and her sons down for dinner. It was Taco Night........ at the Wetherington's. Apparently, our invitation to come eat tacos couldn't have come at a more excellent time for Ms. M because she had a house full of hungry boys and still had to go shopping. So about ten minutes later, there is a knock at the door and in tumbles a herd of hungry children. HHH and I had already had the taco's prepared and we got the kids started. Boy... I was thinking that 2 pounds of meat would be enough for everyone.....I WAS WRONG!!! Those kids(including my own) ate us out of house and home! I was completely cleaned out of taco shells, flour shells, meat veggies... all of it! You would have thought a hungry hoard of vikings had come and feasted.

So, everyone gets fed, half the kids are playing Game cube in Junior's room, the other half are playing Wii in the living room. Then HHH, Ms. M, and myself look at each other and start wondering...... do we tell them? See, for the last 3 weeks we have had a trip to Universal planned. For Grinchmas. For all her family and all of ours. A total of 11 people! Yes, we are truly insane, but it is for the children. Ms. M's for Chanukah and mine for Christmas. Hey what says Happy Holidays more than spending a weekend in Orlando screaming your fool head off with people you care about? Nothing I tell you! The kids were on the happiness scale ranging from mildly amused, (the 11 & 12 year olds.) to ecstatic(the 4 and 6 year olds!)!! So now the kids have to get through another week of school completely jazzed with the idea that there will be a trip to see the Grinch at the end of the week!

Narrator: He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!
Narrator: And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of ten Grinches plus two.
Fa who foray's ya'll!
