Mac: Medical tools so I can take care of my animals. And a new garbage truck. And flashlights. And fast cars. And playdoh. And a real four-wheeler.
Me: Wow, that's a lot of stuff.
Mac: Yeah, I've been real nice.
Me: Oh really? When?
Mac: When I'm sleeping.
Me: What do you think Mim wants for Christmas?
Mac: A baby doll. And a new garbage truck for me.
Me: Mim wants presents for you?
Mac: Yeah, she really loves me.
Mac: I think I'm on the nice list AND the naughty list.
Me: Wow, Mac! Look, Santa sent an elf to watch over you and Mim to make sure you're being nice.
Mac: Uh oh.
Me: What are we going to name the elf?
Mac: How about Daddy?
Me: No, we already have a daddy.
Mac: How about Mommy?
Me: No, we have a mommy too.
Mac: How about Velociraptor!!
Mac: You're on the naughty list, Mim!!
(while driving around looking at Christmas lights)
Mac: Wow! Look at all these lights! Daddy says you never turn out the lights and waste electricity, mama.
(the second time we saw Santa)
Santa: What do you want for Christmas?
Mac: Medical tools.
Santa: Oh, great idea. Are you going to be a doctor when you grow up?
Mac: I already told you that.
Me: No, probably not. It's been too warm for snow.
Mac: Oh, that's a bummer. Maybe we should turn the air conditioner on outside.
Mac: Run, run, as fast as you can...you can't catch me and eat me or have milk and cookies this time, no way, because I'm a gingerbread man!
Mac: Let's sing Jingle Bells!
Me: Ok! Dashing through the snow...
Mac: THAT'S NOT IT!!! Get it together.
Me: No it doesn't. It says we're making footprint reindeer.
Mac: Oh. Okay.
Me: Did you know that Santa's reindeer fly?
Mac: Uh huh! I've never seen a reindeer fly!
Me: Me either.
Mac: We should get that on video.
Me: You better be nice, the elf is watching and will tell Santa if you're mean.
Mac: I'm going to be very very very very very very very nice...to Buddy (the guinea pig). But not to Mim.
Ryan: Mac, what do you think Buddy (the guinea pig) wants for Christmas?
Mac: I think he wants a teeny tiny four-wheeler and a little bitty bulldozer. And candy.
Me: Mac, we have to remember to leave milk and cookies out for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Mac: What's he going to do with them?Me: Eat them, he's going to be hungry after visiting all those houses.
Mac: We should make him French Toast! That gives me extra energy. And I'll eat the cookies for him.
This kid is something else.
