While decorating the tree:
Lex: "I never imagined that we would be celebrating around a dead tree!"
Last night before bed:
Lex: "Mommy, how does the sun glow?"
Me: Insert highly scientific but yet totally age appropriate explanation of fusion that makes me sound like the smarty pants baddie that I am.
Lex: "That explains everything about my life!"
This morning on Christmas Eve:
Connor: "I'm still tired."
Me: "Well, lay your head back down."
Connor: "Not on a holiday!"
