: Tall Tales of Christmas! (Humor)

Tall Tales of Christmas! (Humor)

My friend had her grandchildren spend the night last weekend, and as usual at bedtime the youngsters knelt beside their beds to say their prayers.  

From the living room my friend heard the normal prayer.  

The youngest began praying, "God Bless Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa."

But then at the top of his lungs he yelled, "I also pray for a new Power Wheels, a new Transfromers Helmet and an XBOX 360, Amen."

His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf." 

The little brother replied, "No, but Gramma is!"

Smile, it's Monday & the start of another great week!

Art Linkletter said it best "Kid's say the darndest things".  They make a Christmas with honesty that is painfully blunt but always sincere, heart felt.

Laura...The kids learn very young who is really buying the expensive gift, and it's better to get the items correct.
