I got this from my Jewish friend Miryam on Christmas: "Miryam is ignoring the fact that it's not really his birthday in order to bring you this... Happy Birthday to a radical, nonviolent, anti-death penalty, anti-public prayer (M 6:5), never anti-gay, non-english-speaking, long-haired, brown-skinned, homeless, socialist, middle-eastern Jew. Jesus, you are my kinda guy." My daughter asked me recently about Jesus, and I told her he was a great teacher (so, of course, she thought he taught me when he was alive and I was young - boy that kid thinks I'm old!!! LOL). Jesus didn't ruin Christianity. Christians corrupted Christianity. Jesus didn't preach hatred and intolerance. Jesus was the original long-haired, peace-loving, activist hippie, and he was one radical dude, and he was my kinda guy, too.

Christmas program

Today was the Christmas program for the preschoolers and kindergarteners at St. Mark's. This was Louie's first year, and he was very excited. They did a fantastic job. I was so proud!

Here are some pictures from today:

Teaching T pat-a-cake

Louie decided to teach Theresa to play pat-a-cake. So cute.

Look who's standing?

Theresa started pulling herself up into a standing position a few days ago - little stinker. She's very proud of herself!

Hell really CAN freeze over!

I honestly had to double check to see if I was reading an article from the Onion. I'm thrilled, but shocked - seriously shocked:
Openly Gay Mayor Elected in Houston, Texas

Finally - the videos!

Okay - I finally found the charger for the camera, so I was able to download the videos. Here are a bunch of videos of the munchkins! The first one is of them all singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas:

They're just being silly in this one.

In this video, we are all trying to get Theresa to crawl for us!

Here's a good one of the commando crawl:

Another commando crawl:

Louie sings (sort of!):
