Jingle Bells

Who would have thought that this song could be so much fun! Here is an exerpt of the latest changes:
"Bashing through the snow, in a one horse open school bus
over the fields we go, laughing all the way. Ha ha ha.
Bells on bobtails ring, making french fries,
what fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight. OH!...."

The "school bus" change was intentional and he'll stick in lots of different vehicles there. However, the "french fries" change is not intentional. I'm not sure if he thinks that's what I'm saying or if he can't pronounce it the right way. Either way, it makes me laugh.

Another funny thing is that I thought the song went, "Dashing through the woods." While Chad insists it's "Dashing through the snow." So the other night when I sang "woods" instead of "snow" Chad made a "WHACK!" sound effect and fell down as though he were smacked with a tree branch and knocked off the sleigh. Well, Kai laughed so hard! I've never heard him laugh so hard except when he is being tickled. Now, when we start up the song Kai gets the giggles and tries to copy what Chad did by saying, "Whack!" and falling down. It's really funny! Like I said, I never knew this song could be so fun! I haven't even taught him the "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" version! :)

That is so funny! I laughed out loud picturing it. Max has a song he sings too, and the words change as he spies new things to include. SO CUTE, isn't it?!? Good for you for writing down the words so you'll remember his sweet songs.

I'd love to hear Max's songs. It's so fun to hear them be silly!
