You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!

One of our family Christmas traditions is to watch "The Christmas Story". It's a cult classic. If you haven't seen it, you must. The title of this blog is a recurring theme of the movie as little Ralphy's dream present is a Red Rider 200 Shot Carbide Action Air Rifle with a compass in the stock.

Anyway, today Taylor was upstairs with a Nerf gun that shoots the long "bullets" with suction cups on the end. he was in the walk-in closet where Tracy was and i heard the gun go off and taylor started crying. for some reason he had the gun pointed at his face and pulled the trigger. i immediately started snickering and exlaimed, "you shot your eye out!" Tracy could not help but join in the fun. i kept chasing taylor down with the digital camera to take a picture and post it but he didn't want to cause everyone would laugh at him. so no picture, but i HAD to tell the story!! Just don't tell Taylor you read it here!

we watched the movie tonight and though i've seen it 50 times it seems, tonight i saw a couple things i never caught before.

Well it seems as though Topeka got 9 inches of snow today. Taylor and i went out to shovel the long drive so we could get to church in the morning. Best i could tell, we got about 6 inches here. we are much further north than Topeka and closer to the "edge" of the storm. i can't wait til morning light to truly appreciate all the snow fall. i'll be sure to take lots of pics!
