A Little Irreverent, But Funny!

"Happy ho?"

James was sitting on the couch, watching as I put more ribbon on my Christmas tree.  I just couldn't get the ribbon right--fidgeting with it and moving it from bough to bough.

"What did you say?," I lazily asked, not really paying attention.

"Happy ho," he repeated.

I turned around.  He smiled, slowly.  Slyly.

"What!?," I screeched, with a laugh.  "Why are you calling me that!?"

James laughed--a sound I have come to know and adore, a cross between a clown's yuk-yuk and a snort.  He pointed to the tree and said, "No, look."

My eyes trailed to where his long finger was pointing, eventually landing on Lilly's little homemade ornament.

"OOOHH...," I replied knowingly, as the perpetual light bulb (or rather, strand of Christmas lights) clicked on above my head.  "Lilly made that ornament this afternoon.  She wanted to write a message on it, and asked me how to spell, Happy Holiday...

...Bless her heart, she ran out of room!"

  4. I love when children try to do something nice--no matter what the spelling, grammar or how crudely drawn--it always brings a smile to my lips and a bright feeling in my heart!
