Annual Wrapping Paper Tube Battle
Clint had been expecting them to sneak attack him all of December. I gave them the OK on Christmas Eve. The children got their tubes and waited quietly in the den. I innocently asked Clint "Honey, can you come in here and look at something for me?" He walked in, saw the children battle ready, said "UH OH!!" and took off running! Then he came in, gave a rebel yell and dove into the midst of them. He was immediately attacked and I handed him his two weapons in the midst of the already fierce battle. (I look out for him.) He survived the tube battle and will live to fight another year. Emily watched everything with amusement while I held her with her little tube.
