Shepherds and other not-so-wise men

Looks like we'll be reviewing the account from Luke 2 in a little more detail on Christmas Eve, after tonight's conversation at the dinner table:

Jim: (to Jimmy) "So, what did you learn about today in Primary?"
Jimmy: "Shepherds."
Me: "What did the shepherds do?"
Jimmy: "They told what Jesus said, just like President Hinckley."
Me: "Who else came to see the baby Jesus?"
Jimmy: (looking perplexed) "I don't know."
Me: "Did someone come and bring baby Jesus presents?"
Jimmy: "People."
Jim: "Did some wise men come and see Jesus?"
Jimmy: "Yeah, and some foolish ones, too."

(Glossary notes for my non-Mormon readers: Primary is the kids' Sunday School. President Hinckley is the prophet of the Mormon church. Jimmy's comment about "foolish ones" is actually a reference to one of his favorite Primary songs, "The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock", in which his favorite part is how the rains came down and washed away the foolish man's house upon the sand.)
