I pulled out the, "You'd better go to bed because Santa's Elves are watching you to make sure you're being good!" routine.
His eyes got big, and round, and scared. And he said, "Why would they do that?!"
Also, our church building burned down yesterday.
No wait, it didn't. But the alarm went off, and the entire ward just sat there in the chapel (and gym, because we have an enormous ward.) I sat there too. I don't know what everyone else was thinking, but the thought going through my head was, "Can somebody please get that alarm turned off, it is WAY TOO LOUD!!!!" Seriously, I think our ward is now 37% deafer after that.
Oh, and there was no actual fire.
And the first fire truck to show up was driven by one of our ward members who was on duty that day.
And now, that GIVEAWAY:
For procrastinators everywhere (that would include me) I'm giving away one free photo Christmas card design. Just email me your high resolution family photo(s) and I'll mail you back a 4x6 and 5x7 file of the card design of your choice.
You can see all of my designs in better detail in my etsy shop.
Just leave me a wittingly hilarious comment and you're entered. Or blog about it, leave me the link in a comment and get entered 3 times (this is for either a-the nonwitty comment leaver, or b-the blogger who has too much wittiness to be contained in one comment alone.)
I'll be drawing a winner next monday (dec 7th) at 7:00 PM (MST.)
And speaking of giveaways, we're having a couple really great ones at Green Jello with Carrots right now. You can win a $5 gift certificate this week, or enter to win our big $25 give away at the end of December!
