So one of the things that I love most about Christmas is THE MUSIC!
Can anything be more cheery? More joyful? More dance-able?
The other night Scott and I had a Christmas playlist on while getting dinner ready.
Will and Addie were upstairs doing homework and playing video games.
The music was so fun and so upbeat, we had to dance.
We brought out all the dances we knew...
the running man, the prep, the twist,
the early Jackson Five moves that whip your head from side to side.
Because...Christmas music, you guys!
We danced in the kitchen.
We danced in the living room.
We danced our way upstairs.
We took all that dancing joy UP TO THE CHILDREN.
Addie looked up from Fort Night with horror in his eyes and said,
As if there needs to be a "why" for jamming to Christmas songs.
Note to self:
If you are dancing to Christmas songs and want to horrify the children even more,
just say things like:
"Don't you think our jams are jolly?" or
"Do you want to jam with us?" or
"Christmas jams rock!"
The important thing is to say "jams" as many times as possible.
The increase of horror is directly related to the frequency with which you say the word "jam."
We busted into Will's room where he was talking online with friends.
He glanced over his shoulder and said, "It's my mom and dad."
When he saw our smooth moves, he just repeatedly said,
As if saying "no" would stop all our jammin'. Christmas jammin' rocks!
To teenagers, one parent dancing is bad.
Both parents dancing?
A complete travesty. A breakdown of all that is good and right. A betrayal.
It's okay, though.
They will get over it 25 years from now when they are dancing in front of their own teenagers.
We couldn't stop laughing.
It really did increase our joy.
So I thought I would share that joy with you.
Here is a playlist for you to dance to you.
Jam with joy!
Get your swing on!
Get your tap dance on! Kids love it when you fake tap dance!!!
Get your groove on!
Get your hip hop on!
Get your jam on!
Merry Christmas early, you guys!
