The Harpoon and other Stories

Tonight, after dinner, just before we were to begin our Christmas Reading Advent Calendar Activity, GRIFFIN asked: "Can I make my harpoon right here?"
I happily told him yes. He quietly made the following:


We had spaghetti last week. It was good. I was VERY hungry while making dinner so I made up for it in my mind by making plenty! I just didn't realize how much of plenty I made till after dinner. Zak, who loves spaghetti, told me to just dish him out, he wouldn't look, but would accept all that I gave him. I guess I gave him a bit too much, but who knew??

Here is his dinner, before he started eating:

(please note: the pictures will NOW be out of the correct order. It is too much of a pain to re-place them in the correct order. Just enjoy the chaos.)

Here is Zak's plate AFTER he was done stuffing himself: Here is what is left in the colander AFTER dinner. Oops. Dad said that I had made enough for our family and the whole Patriots team....They were playing that night on TV. Carbo loading.
I said I was fine with that; we would be having spaghetti the NEXT night for dinner too; and we did....we still didn't finish all the spaghetti.

Another shot of Zak's plate after he was done:

Griffin wanted his face and spaghetti in a picture too!

I Owned Steven

I knew I had to beat Steven to get 2nd place in the standings, and I destroyed him, it's not that big of a deal though; me beating him iss about as surprising as the Young Men winning the Turkey Bowl (not at all). And it's not really my fault I'm only in 2nd place, because I beat Christopher the one time I got to play him, and beat Steven BOTH times I played him; unfortunately though, Dad is actually tied with me for 2nd (and he beat me both times we played), so I have to hope Dad loses to someone this week. I also noticed that I was (once again) the top point getter this week, and am quickly climbing my way up to Points For list, but it's not a big deal, that's only about as surprising as knowing that I own the top two rushers in the NFL (not at all).
I was going to make a bet to Heather about the Rams-Seahawks game, but I got worried Steven Jackson wouldn't play.

Maybe the Rams should use Steven Jackson as their new QB
