On the fourth day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me

four reasons to smile today:

  1. Matt teaching Alex to say “Ma! Meatloaf!” a la Will Farrell in Wedding Crashers.  It comes out “Ma! MeeMee!” [will provide video once this is perfected]
  2. donating a toy this morning to the Toys for Tots program – hope it in turn makes another little person smile
  3. hearing the new Coldplay “Christmas Lights” song – gives me shivers
  4. getting unsolicited hugs from a certain little boy – the best feeling

Oh, and this picture makes me smile too 🙂

And here are four things to make you smile:

  1. cute present topper from Simply Modern Mom to go with…
  2. printable gift tags from leapfrog lane
  3. and while you are wrapping your presents, why not enjoy a Poinsettia cocktail
  4. while munching on some fudge… oh yeah…

  1. sweet post!!
    cannot wait to hear the “ma! meatloaf!” heeee ! oh gosh, we just LOVE that movie. so funny. and that cocktail looks SO good. yum. may need to run to the shop tomorrow!

  2. Also love the song from Coldplay! Can’t wait to see the video of Alex. What a great picture of the two of you! Unsolicited hugs are the best!

  3. Thanks for this post! I’m a huge coldplay fan and somehow I’ve never heard of that awesome song! But now I just added it to my itunes – thanks! And I can’t wait to hear Alex’s version of “Ma Meatloaf!”

    And I printed out those gift tags, Poppy painted them with her watercolors, I cut them out and now all of our gifts are looking super cute! Thanks!

    And I have a few really good books I’ve read over the past few weeks and I wanted to pass the titles along to you in case you didn’t have too many books on your nightstand these days! The first one is “Room” by Emma Donoghue, then “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett and I’m just finishing up “Little Bee” by Chris Cleaves. They were all sooo good!

  4. Oh man, there is SO MUCH AWESOME in this post!! I love “Ma! Meatloaf!” and the song… oh, the song!!

    I love the links (thanks for the shout out!) and the drink… Mmmm… I may need to skip a night of antibiotics for that one.

    But mostly, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that photo. One of my all-time faves.
