My children are beyond excited for Christmas. The house is overflowing with decorations waiting to be put in their places for the season. Tyler has located every book with a Christmas theme and has them in stacks to help feed his insatiable reading.

Emma: Tyler, you're missing Biscuit!
Tyler: No, I'm not. On Donder and...
Tyler: Emma, there is not a reindeer named Biscuit.
Emma: Yes, there is! My teacher telled me!

Emma: (no comment, for once).
As stubborn as she is we probably have a new deer pulling Santa's sleigh this year.
