Rock Me Hot Potatoes
On Sunday when we were driving home from the birthday party we passed through the Lakes Region.  I pointed out to Keegan the ice fishing houses.

Me: See those blocks on the ice?
K: Yes
M: They are ice fishing houses.  People go inside them to keep warm and then cut a hole in the ice for their fishing poles.
K: Like in Jingle Bells?

M: Dashing through the snow...Oh wait do you think it's "fishing through the snow?"
K: Yup

He must get that from my mom who thought the song Amadeus was really "hot potatoes."
