What's the strangest or funniest thing that happened to you in 2007?
My son Jacob won $500 on the Cartoon Network. He had to phone in - it was Reanimated - and he answered the question right. I was cooking dinner and he asked if he could. And he asked if we could get a dog if he won the money and I said sure - I didn't think he'd win! So we got a shih tzu, named Snickers.
One of the funniest things that happened to me is my not-yet-2-year-old Kaylie told me not to yell at her. We were standing in line for Santa and she kept saying, "Why?" "Why?" "Why?" did we have to stand in line? I told her we had to wait in line until it was our turn, and she said, "Don't yell at me!"

I traveled to Egypt on Christmas last year. It was non-traditional, to be in that foreign a country during the Christmas holidays. There were Christian Coptics, but it is mostly Muslims, who were celebrating Eid; they were leading goats and donkeys and lambs up and down the streets in Cairo to be slaughtered.

Something exciting was we wrote a letter to Santa asking for a "marble machine." It's a toy with shelves and tunnels for marbles to run down. His grandmother, who writes for another Danville newspaper, wrote about it. Bradley (2-3/4 years old) saw it in a Toys R Us catalog.
