The kids have been singing Christmas carols pretty much non-stop these days. I am reminded that Jingle Bell Rock is NOT a song when I try to sing it. Also almost all second verses of any other song that they do know, they believe is wrong and also does not exist. However, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer they have down to a science.
We have to start the song by with naming off all of the other reindeer and then we go from the "but do you recall..." to a crescendo of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose...."
As we get to the part about calling him names, Ellie always chimes in that this is the sad part.
And when we get to "then one foggy Christmas Eve..." she says, "ohhhh, this is my favorite part!"
Maybe it's cuter in person, but let me tell you, it is c.u.t.e.
