Shake Up The Happiness~ It’s Christmas time

It’s day 2 of Christmas vacation. This was my wake up call.

And yes, our entire family consists of singing and dancing maniacs, which is why Rudi the dachshund kept right on sleeping.

If you haven’t seen Train’s video of “Shake Up Christmas”, which inspired this seasons popular Coke commercials, take a peek~ you may just smile and possibly get up and dance.

Day 1 of Christmas vacation had me smiling. We had to run errands, much to Sweet Boy’s chagrin. I held out the Santa hat and said “Do you think you could spread some Christmas cheer while we’re out?” He liked the challenge. While I stood in a 30+ minute post office line, Sweet Boy opened the door to several people loaded down with packages. Indeed the entire line of previously grumpy people seemed to enjoy his antics.

How are you shaking up Christmas?


Tomorrow: 8 & 9 year old boys making Christmas soldiers out of tp rolls. Tutorial: included. Laughs: optional.

Sounds so familiar, I waited 30mins in the post office line up only to have the computer crash right when it was my turn, then waited another 30 for them to get it back up. Sometimes you just gotta take a deep breath and smile!

Was just entertained with both videos while I sat here eating my lunch. Hadn't heard that song before but I liked it and I'm certain it's going to be in my head all day now. :)

I love Train and now have another reason to - hadn't heard this one. Of course, Sweetboy's dancing is far superior and Rudy is epitome of blase. Love it! Good luck with those soldier tomorrow. Ann

P.S. saw the spray bottle and I know it's for Mr. D
