That first cold night hits, and they start planning…

First we’ll make snow angels for a two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie Dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.”

I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands.”

You can’t escape their enthusiasm…

Wow, you’re fast. I’m glad I caught up to you. I waited 5 hours for you. Why is your coat so big? So, good news – I saw a dog today. Have you seen a dog? You probably have. How was school? Was it fun? Did you get a lot of homework? Huh? Do you have any friends? Do you have a best friend? Does he have a big coat, too?…”

Even the little things make them excited…

You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It’s great to be here.”

“Have you seen these toilets? They’re GINORMOUS!”

Good news! I saw a dog today!”

And if you aren’t in the Christmas spirit, they’ll do their best to get you there…

Sounds like somebody needs to sing a Christmas Carol.”

Even their bad days are adorable…

I am a cotton-headed ninnymoggins!”

“SON of a NUTcracker!”

And resistance is futile, because their enthusiasm really IS kind of contagious…

“You have such a pretty face, you should be on a Christmas card!”

So you feel yourself starting to give in…and then they’ve got you hooked…


Because who wants to be a downer around all that happy??

I just like to smile! Smiling’s my favorite.”

And their reaction? Better than anything else on earth.

“I love you. I love you! I LOVE YOU!”
