Who Wins?

You might remember last year when The Geeky One and his Adorable Girlfriend-at-the-time (now wife) had a argument slight disagreement over what belonged at the top of their Christmas tree. She insisted on a star…he insisted on a hanging Jack from Jack-in-the-Box. He snuck in after they decorated the tree…and hung Jack on the star.

So we went over to their house this year for their annual wine and cheese party…and look what I saw!

jack-in-the-box-on-treeIt appears he’s a sneaky one, That Geeky One. He hung the Hanging Jack from their star again. :nono: Stephanie, you are a trooper for putting up with our weird family traditions.

Speaking of weird family traditions. My mom had these Christmas mice that she put out at Christmas. Who knows where she got them. She put them out every year. When The Geeky One was really young, he asked one year where are the Christmas Rats? We were like, huh??? We finally figured out he meant the mice. So from then on he got to put those Christmas “rats” out in my mom’s house. It was always hard to decide where to put them each year, don’t you know.

When he got his own home, my mom gave him the “Rats.” :heart: because she wanted to get rid of them. she knew how much The Geeky One loves them. She’s a good mom/grandmother like that. :love2: (See, I come by being a great mom genetically. Really!)

Christmas MiceHere they are in all their glory! No doubt The Geeky One STILL has a hard time deciding where to put them each year! (Stephanie, seriously, you are the best to put up with us!)

As an aside…it pays to have really tall sons ™. The Photography One just reached my iPhone right up there to the top of the tree and took the photo of Jack for me. :heart:

You do have some weird traditions but they’re FUN! :)

It’s funny – the things we think are tacky are the same things that our kids remember with fondness. I don’t know how she puts up with that jack guy. That thing would drive me crazy. :lips:

You could have a great December Daily series on traditions…speaking of, Where’s Rudolph this year?
