Because We Can

I'm adamant that we not start celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving. Ellie's choir is working on their Christmas show, but other than that we don't sing Christmas music or watch Christmas videos. And our house is still decorated with pumpkins and turkeys and leaves, browns and oranges and yellows.

But this year . . . I don't know. I'm feeling a little ready.

Today we watched Shrek the Halls for the first time - but certainly not the last - of the the season.

As always, I wonder what's the song at the beginning of the Christmas Eve dance party in the swamp. I'm taking about the very first hard beat followed by, "Yipee yah yah yah yah yah-oo! o-o!"

Shockingly enough, googling the lyrics didn't get me very far.

So I did what any curious and competitive wife might do: I challenged my husband to a Google-off!

It was much harder than you might think the find the answer.

And I won!

Of course, by the time I solved the puzzle, Paul had moved on to playing Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii (the girls were playing downstairs and we a few minutes before dinner was ready). So it wasn't really much of a competition. But still: success!

(For the curious, the song is Because We Can by Fatboy Slim. I've never seen Moulin Rouge.)

You would be proud of me, Sarahlynn. We just took down our Halloween decorations. :)

We did, too! And it was a little traumatic. Turkeys aren't nearly as much fun as ghosts. Boo!
