Elmo Massacre


Elmo Massacre
Originally uploaded by philipco.
It was an Elmo massacre at our house tonight. Nora, music secretary extraordinaire, made this cake for me and the triplets. It didn't last long and the girls really enjoyed it!

UPDATE: Caroline, Elmo, and the nose.

I have an uncomfortable thought that the girls may have been moved to violence against Elmo from the soft and sexy sounds of Kenny G playing Christmas carols on his horn . . . at this point it is just a theory (see earlier blog post for insight). However, I've begun to develop certain urges to strike out when I hear the CD begin . . . maybe I've just had a long day.

Dr. Copeland. A little 60 grit sandpaper always helps to "smooth out" the transitions between tracks. And placing the cd in the microwave for about 45 seconds on high helps add some "warmth" to the music.

I say call an exorcist before it is too late. Once a house is infested with Kenny G, it is hard to get the stains out.

Maybe you should break out a Carpenters or Enya album to prove a point about where Christmas music was never meant to go.

I say break it, blame it on the girls and then make sure she doesn't punish them because they didn't know any better. And they really didn't know any better.

Then again, I like Clay's suggestions.

Make sure you can buy a new microwave if you follow Clay's advice...

ok.two questions...
1. Does Nora just randomly make character cakes for people? (By the way, that is some great work on that cake)
and
2. Do you really think it was jsut the Kenny G that drove the kids over the edge?
I mean, I love Elom as much as the next 10-year-old trapped in an adult body.. but you gotta admit, sometimes Elmo can become pretty annoying.

Think about it...

That video still makes me giggle uncontrollably.
