The 4th Day of Christmas - Travel Version

OK, I'm going to ask the obvious question here. What's this guys fascination with birds? For the fourth day in a row, he comes trotting over to his true loves house with some form of winged creature, this time deciding that blackbirds would make an ideal Christmas present. If there was any doubt about the depth of his girlfriends love for him it can certainly be put to rest by now. Lori would have kicked me to the curb a long time ago in this gift giving fiasco.

Colly Bird? Beats me. It's black. That's close enough for me.

Obviously I have no use for multiple blackbirds flying around our house. They're going to clash with the Turtle Doves and black isn't exactly the color scheme that Lori used when decorating our house. What we could use more of though, is Angry Birds. As much as I complain about my boys obsession with Angry Birds, I have to admit that it sure keeps him entertained no matter how long our travel day might get. In fact, I'll let you in on a little secret here....I've been known to while away the odd hour or two on a plane throwing birds at pigs as well. It's really quite an addictive game, but I keep my playing a secret as it's kind of embarrassing to compare my progress in the game to my son's. He's long finished every level there is, while I'm still struggling away on the base game. The recently released Star Wars Angry Birds however, would put us both back on level footing, For at least the first two minutes.

So far then....

On the fourth day of Christmas, what you should get for me,

Four Star Wars Angry Birds,
Three healthy children,
Two nights at Turtle Bay, and a 
Hotel Room in a Pine Tree.
