Ginger Kisses

 Wednesday, January 12th was officially Kiss A Ginger Day (seriously).  Here at Gregoropolis we love red hair, so our redheads thought they would share some smooches with you.  If there's a special Ginger in your life, don't feel that you need to let a whole year go by without kissing them!

Charles: Made-up holidays are silly!
Meghan: Party pooper.

Nanny Wendy: Ah, the attention of two handsome men!
What more could a girl ask for?

Gino: Solo un piccolo bacio?
Uli: >Humpf< Very vell.

Harriet: Are you a natural redhead?
Aubrey: Only my hairstylist knows for sure.

Anika: Um, have you been eating garlic?
Kevin: Sorry...

Frederick: So you say posh people kiss all the time?
Daphne: Oh, absolutely sweetie.
Frederick: And how do they kiss?
DaphneWell, first they address each other as 'darling'.
Frederick: Darling?
Daphne: More like, 'Daahling'!  Try to sound bored or blasé about it.
Then a little peck that barely hits the cheek.

Frederick: Ta-ta, daahling.
Daphne: That's it, sweetie!  We gingers are just naturally posh.

Packing Up the Holidays

 Daddy Steve: The Christmas season is over, and the kids are all busy packing up our decorations.

James: What's going on in here?
Lara: Luke and Oliver are taking down the big tree.

James: How many ornaments have they broken?
Lara: Only two; much better than last year!
Luke: Oops!
Lara: >sigh< Three.

Holly Belle: It's a good thing I'm here to direct this operation.  
Who knows what would go wrong otherwise?  
John Martin, you move those boxes over there.  The Santa figurines go 
in that long box.  All the others...blah, blah, blah.
Nathan, go in the basement and get...blah, blah, blah.
Paul, check the cupboard under the stairs for the...blah, blah, blah.
Alright everyone, let's get moving!

Nathan: What would we do without her?
John Martin: >Sigh<

Paul: I love Christmas.  It's kind of sad to see all the decorations get put away.
Holly Belle: I know what you mean, but there are a lot of fun holidays coming up. 
Like Valentine's Day!  Flowers! Candy! Romantic cards!  
Isn't that right, John Martin?

Holly Belle:  ♫ Oh, John Martin! ♫
Hmmm, where do you suppose he went?
Nathan: Probably hiding out until Easter.

New Year's Day 2022

 Nobody in Gregoropolis made it to midnight last night (not even Daddy Steve or Daddy John), so some of the boys decided to have an impromptu pizza brunch today....


Annabelle: Woof!  (Mine!)

Later on, a few rocked the house.  Stephen Orange proved a capable DJ.



HAPPY NEW YEAR from GREGOROPOLIS!

Advent 2021, Day 24: Nanny Wendy, Baby Connor, & Mikey

The kids have enjoyed this year's Lego Advent calendar, but now it's time for the last door.  One more day until Christmas!


Nanny Wendy: Okay, Mikey, can you find the door for today?
Mikey: I can do it my-self.

Mikey: I finded it!  Now we snap it?
Nanny Wendy: That's right, good job!  Some of those blocks are 
pretty small, why don't you let me help you?
Mikey: Okay.

Connor: Dees?

Nanny Wendy: No, sweetie, that's not cheese.
That's part of the puzzle.  Don't eat it!

Nanny Wendy: There we go.  Thank you for your help, boys!
Mikey: I helped!
Connor: Dees!

Nanny Wendy: It's a top!  We spin it as part of the calendar's game.
Mikey: Spin it! Spin it!
Connor: Pinnit! Pinnit!

Nanny Wendy: We'll put it down on the calendar mat
so that the others can use it to play the game.
Mikey & Connor: Yay!
Nanny Wendy: Baths for both of you tonight, then early to bed!
Santa comes tonight, so we'll put out some cookies and milk for him.
Connor: Dees!
Nanny Wendy: >Ha-ha< And some cheese, too!


MERRY CHRISTMAS from all of us at GREGOROPOLIS!

Advent 2021, Day 23: Gavin & Harriet

 

Gavin: I don't know if you've noticed, but I happen to have green eyes,
unruly hair, and a mark on my forehead!  Remind you of anyone?

Harriet: Are you saying you should have been named Harry?
Gavin: No, I'm saying he should have been named Gavin Potter!

Harriet: >Snort< Right.  I'll just open today's door, shall I?

Gavin: Holy Comet and Cupid, what is that?!
It looks like a green Dalek.

Gavin: BRING+ME+FIGGY+PUDDING+OR+YOU+WILL+BE+EXTERMINATED
Harriet: Different franchise, dear.  Let's get started...

Harriet: It's a Christmas tree!  How lovely!
Gavin: Pfft.  A Dalek would've been pretty cool. 
Harriet: A Dalek's not very Christmassy...

Gavin: I dunno...'Gavin Potter and the Daleks from Planet Noël
has a nice ring to it.

Advent 2021, Day 22: Katie & Sasha

 

Katie: Christmas is such an exciting time!  Remember way back when we
lived at the toy department at Dayton's?
Sasha: Oh yes; that was such a busy time.  So many shoppers bringing
home toys to girls and boys.

Katie: And the animated holiday shows?  One year it was 
'Santa's Workshop' and another was the 'Dickens Village.'
Sasha: Actually, I never saw any of them.  Being so short, I was scared I'd
get trampled.  But everyone sure talked about them!
Katie: >Sigh< Now the store is gone, and people don't go downtown
to shop anymore.  Oh well.  On that bittersweet note, let's open today's door.

Katie: Day 22 coming right up!  Wonder what the prize will be?

Sasha: I know who it is!

Katie: Bad boy Draco Malfoy!

Sasha: You know, not all blond kids are evil...
Katie: I do know!  We've been angels all year.  Santa is sure to be good to us.
