Yesterday, Shane was continually singing the following line, “my brand new gate.” It had a slightly familiar melody, but I could not conjure up what song that line would come from. Especially given that we have been listening almost exclusively to Christmas music the past few days. Later in the evening I absentmindedly tuned into the Chipmunks Christmas album playing in the background and it was “All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth.” I started laughing and then asked Shane if that is the song he was singing. It was, ha! We got his words straightened out and then I had to spend a significant amount of time explaining why someone would ask for teeth for Christmas instead of something more fun.

In other season related terminology, Shane insists on calling the big red dude with the beard “Santa Claw” because “Santa Claus” is only for when there is more than one.
