feet

Elliot's line "Most people, as they walk, seem to just see their feet, of which they have both, or they see directly in front of them. That's all." was part of what prompted my last post, but I was thinking about it tonight as I was babysitting my nieces. We usually read a couple stories before lights-out, and today it was "The Foot Book" by none other than Dr. Seuss. Funny, but it triggered in my mind that quote from Elliot. Then I got to thinking - we've been blogging pretty seriously about the rights and wrongs of the Season. Maybe it's time for a little silliness.

I copied the text hoping to share it with you here, but somehow the attachment I sent myself from my brother-in-law's office never made it... probably met with the same fate as the two links that were supposed to appear in my last post as well! Maybe it's the electronic gods telling me I get enough mail from everyone HERE, I don't have to mail myself!

None the less, it was cute.

Up next: some thoughts on giving and receiving... and doing it year round.

Pillow time.

we read lots of Dr Suess when the kids were small. but fox in socks was the worst, and ended up behind a couch... found it, when we were getting ready to move here...

that was a nearly unreadable book!!!

Nearly unreadable? Totally unreadable.

I had One Foot Two Foot almost commited to memory when the girls were little along with Hop on Pop.

My brother's favorite book when he was little was "There are rocks in my socks said the Ox to the Fox".

The rights and wrongs of the Season...I don't think I will get into that one. ;) One of my favorite songs as a child though was from the Sesame Street Christmas LP. The lyrics were: "Keep Christmas with you all through the year. When Christmas is over, keep some Christmas cheer!" The song was great. We should all keep that fuzzy warm feeling through the year.

I love Dr. Seuss. I think there's a lot of wisdom in those books.
