    Merry Christmas to you as well! That was adorable. Was that a princess dress she was wearing?

  • http://www.girlfromtexas.wordpress.com Suzette

    Ah, Leta. You made my day. I laughed out loud. I hope that was an appropriate response. :) But, really…it was a Merry and Bright laugh, and the internet wishes you a Merry Christmas right back!

    She is ridiculously cute :) Hope you and your family have a great Holiday and that you feel better soon. Merry Christmas!

    i guess the benefit of pregnancy vs. the flu is that it’s not contagious?

    sheila, who is wondering if she’s supposed to be happy that her preschooler seemed to recover from the flu at 4:44, fully ready to hit the day running.

    Oh, the cuteness! Merry Christmas to all!

  • Janelle

    Merry Christmas, Armstrong family! And special tidings to Chuck and Coco – the best dogs on the Internet. If I get a digital camera for Christmas, I will send you a picture of my dog, Lucy. Her and Chuck would make a very cute couple – although it would have to be a long distance relationship. Again, Merry Christmas, you guys. Keep up the great singing, Leta!

    Too cute for words. Best part for me was my dogs’ reaction when they heard Coco’s (or Chuck’s) collar. They ran for the door looking to see what other dog was in their space. Happy Holidays Armstrongs!

  • Melissa

    Merry Christmas to you Leta (also the Heather and Jon)

    You’ll go down in mystery!

  • Candis

    …You’ll go down in mystery!!! That’s hilarious. Too cute. Merry Christmas!!

    Merry Christmas! I only discovered your blog about 2 months ago and I love it! Plus I have the same baby due date as you!
    All the best to you and your family:)

  • Sara

    SupermegacuteOMG! Rudolph goes down in mystery. Who knew?

  • Gaby

    “Internet, Merry Christmas!” Thank you, Leta, you did a wonderful job singing! And Merry Christmas to the entire Armstrong family; I hope you have safe travels and develop wonderful memories.

    Dude. I think she has your eyebrows. :)

    And she is super cute!

  • Ames

    Thanks Leta! Merry Christmas to you all!

    That video makes me want to “shout out with gleed.” Merry Christmas!

  • Stacey

    That. Was. TOO. Cute.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope it’s wonderful.

  • Crystal

    OMG!!!! She is just too freaking cu-u-u-u-ute! (as my 3 yr old son would say!)
    Merry Christmas Armstrongs, and a Happy New Year! :)

    Merry Christmas to the Armstrongs.

    Oh my goodness :) Thank you for such a lovely medley–see, the upside of being so open about your family is that God knows how many people are wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year :)

    Leta, you made my morning with your songs!!! Thank you!

    My four-year-old daughter, Selby, has decided that “That Leta princess,” is her best friend and she wants Santa to bring her a Leta princess doll for Christmas. Oye.

  • http://zipbagofbones.blogspot.com Cat

    Dude, I think I tripped over your spleen the other day, want me to go back and try to find it?

    Merry Christmas, may all your gay argeuments wait until Easter.

  • http://squirrelstories.blogspot.com E-Lo

    I often shout out in gleed when it comes to Christmas. Man, she is too cute. Merry Christmas Leta! Enjoy your last Christmas as an only child! :)

  • Nick from the UK

    I submit that the lyrics to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer be altered to suit the much more entertaining and enigmatic variant put forward by the exceedingly adorable Leta.

    Merry Christmas Armstrongs :)

  • Susan A

    That was sooo cute!!!! Merry Christmas!

    There’s nothing like holiday carols from Cinderella!
    Merry Christmas!

  • Becca

    That was so freaking cute! My 3 year old got a kick out of it, and said, “Mama, I wanna sing like Leta!!” Merry Christmas!!

  • http://www.mysterymommy.blogspot.com liz

    Merry Christmas to you, too!

  • Kristi

    Wonderful! Merry Christmas to you too Leta!
    And to Heather, Jon, “bump,” Chuck, and Coco!

  • http://cnbyates.blogspot.com cyndy

    Okay, THAT was the cutest ever!

    Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to the Armstrong family!

  • Ashee

    Happy holidays to you and your dear family!

    You have given me hope that familial dysfunction can be charming and enjoyable. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. ‘Cause now I might get married and have children and not worry so much about the world exploding if I take my crazy pills during pregnancy. :)

  • http://daddyscratches.com Daddy Scratches

    Too cute.
    Merry Christmas to the Armstrongs. Enjoy the holidays.

    I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas–this is a seriously cute video. I’m sure Baby Jesus would give it mad props.

  • Kat

    Merry Christmas to you too Armstrong family!

    p.s. I really enjoyed “you’ll go down in mystery.” :) Made my day.

  • Leslie

    Hi. Merry Christmas from the internet to your lovely (expanding) family.

    Leslie from MO

  • Olivia

    Adorable!!! Don’t feel guilty for light-posting Dooce, have fun and enjoy time with your beautiful family. This is your last Christmas with just you, Leta, and Jon! Next year there’ll be an addition :-)
    Merry Christmas Heather, Jon and Leta :-)

    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer would look a LOT different with a tiny nose, and would probably not have had to fool that little wench Clarise if he did. Fine point by Leta.

    Also – Rudolph will definitely go down in Mystery.

    Happy Holidays blurbodoocery maniacs.

  • http://psycheknot.livejournal.com Jocey

    Happy holidays to you as well! I hope Coco doesn’t try to devour any Baby Jesus figurines — that is my parents’ full-size Aussies’ favorite holiday activity apart from eating snow and chewing on one another’s heads.

  • http://www.thecamille.blogspot.com/ Camille

    I can’t decide what I would like more. A kid, or my very own Sleeping Beauty Dress… Maybe that’s why I haven’t let my husband knock me up yet. I do very much enjoy vicariously living through YOUR pregnancies, though! Happy holidays to you and yours, Heather!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yes, THAT many exclamation points kind of happy.)

  • http://rustymiami.blogspot.com/ Rusty

    The best part of this is her Sleeping Beauty dress.

    Happy Holidays! I get to spend Christmas with my Grandfather, his third wife, his son from his second marriage, and my mother who is the product of his original marriage which he ruined when he cheated on my grandmother with the third wife. It’s going to be amazing.

  • Janie

    Awwww…Merry Christmas to you too, Leta! Love the princess dress!

    I went to the archives to compare your pregnancies, Heather, and it got me all caught up in the old baby Leta pictures and stories. Those fat little cheeks, that stubborn little body. Oh it’s so hard to believe so much time has past and she’s so big now. Her singing made me tear with the sweetness of it. I know there are others who feel the same as I do and it makes me sorry for any internet blog naysayers who don’t understand….love is love no matter what corner it comes from and I love you guys!
    Merry Christmas.

  • Elizabeth

    Leta (and Armstrongs) Merry Christmas to you too!

    I am now going to sing “…you’ll go down in mystery” – gives Rudolph a little something extra.

  • C

    Priceless! Thank you!! Merry Christmas to all three (well, four) of you, too! May we all go down in mystery!

  • Red

    i love that kid. merry christmas, armstrongs!!

  • Heather in CA

    I will now forever sing that he will go down in “mystery.” Awesome. Merry Christmas Armstong family!

  • Nicole

    You’ll go down in mystery! The best flubbed line, really. :)

    Merry Christmas, Heather, Jon, Leta and bump!

  • Chrsitina

    Quick – run her to American Idol auditions…waste not a second more…

    Merry toys to everyone!

  • http://www.thecarrollfamily-rosemarie.blogspot.com/ Rose

    Too cute! Enjoy the time off. I am light-posting this week, too. I’m sure my 14 readers will miss me! :)

  • Robyn

    Merry Christmas to all of you…and tell Leta she did a great job. :-)

  • http://callipygianchronicle.wordpress.com Yolanda

    I love how Leta’s singing in more like a fast recitation. Very spoken word. I can totally picture her knocking back espressos in a dimly lit coffee shop and complaining about The Establishment 15 years from now.

    Merry Christmas, Armstrongs.
