New Tricks and Vegetables

– Hello, vlog.
– Hi, vlog. – Me and Isaiah are
taking Ab on the vehicle to go to Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s chilly so we all got sweaters on. – Yeah, it’s funny, chilly. It’s like 55 for us but it’s chilly. It’s Florida, okay. (upbeat music) – [Summer] ♪ Da da da da da da da! ♪ We made it. – Whew!
– [Summer] Okay. Some enthusiasm would be neat. – Whew! I thought you’re from Miami. (woman laughs) – [Isaiah] They say MaassSquad? – [Summer] Gosh, how do
you zoom in on this thing? How do you zoom in? – [Isaiah] Red thing. That says MaassSquad. It’s about all you get. Guys, it says MaassSquad right there. Right there. – [Summer] What do we do? – I don’t know.
(woman giggles) Do we just–
– [Summer] We gotta say hi. – [Isaiah] Why we got to. I don’t know who it– – [Crew] Anything else? – Yes, a medium hot coffee with just– – [Couple] Hi! – So, we were sitting here
and Isaiah looks up at the car in front of us and says like, “Oh my god, there’s a MaassSquad sticker.” Wait, can this be zoomed out? I can’t with this thing. Yeah, okay, let me start over. (laughing) We were sitting in the
line and Isaiah looked up and there’s a car in front of us that had a #MaassSquad sticker. – And I was like, okay,
maybe I can’t read. Maybe it says something else, I was like, “No, that’s definitely
double A, double S.” – What do we do, what do we do? And so, we saw her– – We kept staring at her
until she noticed us. That’s pretty much what we did. – So, she screamed
through her window at us and also paid for our Dunkin’. So thank you so much.
– She did it was super sweet. She was like, “Bye, guys.” It was so nice.
– Yeah, it was super cute. – So then, we passed it on. – Yeah, we passed it on. – To that guy that we were
just waving at right there. – So now, we’re gonna stop
and give Ab her munchkins and just, then head home. – Dad talked about good deeds
for new year’s resolution. We did that. – Done did that.
– Done did that. – Give her the munchkins. Go or the munchkins.
(woman laughs) – [Summer] Oh, no. (upbeat music) – What is up, guys? Welcome to the vlog.
– Hi, guys. – Priscilla is making a, what’s it for? – Prosperity? – Prosperity, health and happiness? – Yep.
– Okay. So, it’s greens, southern tradition. Let me know if you guys do this one. Greens, hoppin’ johns, which
is the black eyed peas. – With rice.
– With rice. – Yep, and cornbread. – Cornbread, that’s right. – Abigail is forging, we’ve
been kind of just hangin’ out, havin’ some snacks, some
of the leftover stuff from the party last night. Dad and Ana stopped by. He broke his television so he was testing the DVD player to make sure
it wasn’t his television. Or make sure it wasn’t the DVD player. It is the television. Hey kiddo, I think
you’ve had enough, okay. Come on, you’ve had
enough. (foil rustling) No, no, no more grabbing. Let go. Ab. I’m not gonna let you, Ab. You can’t just grab when
I see you’ve had enough. Thank you. – So what do you do with
old TVs here since– – [Asa] You can recycle ’em at Best Buy. – Oh, okay.
– [Asa] Yep. – Good. – Or, you can have the city pick it up. – [Asa] Yeah, city can pick it up too. – Isaiah and Summer ran to the store, pick up a couple of things for, we needed a couple more totes
to put the Christmas decor in because we have fall
decor in some of them now so we ran out of storage
for Christmas decor. They ran to get that. They were practicing TikTok earlier or posting TikToks,
(woman mumbles) important stuff goin’ on around here guys. We’re just chillin’. It is a nice day. – I’ve been workin’ though. It’s been fun. Back in my groove, off of vacation. – Oh yeah, it’s already afternoon. We’ve been hustlin’, gettin’ it done, finished today’s vlog. That’s ready to go. – So, when do you guys put
up your Christmas decor? Mine, January 1st, that’s when you do it. No sooner. All you girls, you’ve
all been puttin’ it up like Christmas day (clears throat) more and breezy. You can’t be puttin’ it up that soon. – [Asa] Lauren put her
Christmas decorations out on like November 1st or whatever. – Yeah, or the day after Halloween. Girl! – [Asa] She’s probably
tired of it right now. – She probably, she actually
had to do it for Ella because Ella thinks that
every day is Christmas. – [Asa] You mean December? – Yeah, when she has
her Christmas decor up. – [Asa] So what are you puttin’ in here? So, it’s bacon, onions? – So, bacon, onion, ham and garlic. And, I’m just sauteing this right now and then I’ll put the greens in, add some vinegar, salt and
pepper. (hands clapping) It’s amazing! – Do we hear this, hear this sound? Hear that right there? (playful piano music) That is the keyboard. Thanks for that Ralph. Priscilla’s dad, Ralph, he got, he sent that to Abbie for Christmas. How the batteries not died in it? – [Priscilla] It’s actually mind boggling. I’ve sent him the exact link for that. – But it’s been going
for like seven days now, straight, non-stop. – [Asa] That some kind of voodoo science. Wait, that’s all those greens?
– [Priscilla] Yeah. – [Asa] That’s crazy.
– [Priscilla] I know. I just told the kids like,
“Can you get me some more?” That’s all they had at Publix when I went to get them the other day. – [Asa] New year, new you. Cookin’ in pajamas.
(Priscilla chuckles) This looks awesome so.
– [Priscilla] Thanks. – [Asa] Isaiah’s not a fan of beans. Neither is Priscilla. – [Priscilla] No, but I eat a
little bit ’cause, you know, you got to be healthy.
– Superstitions. Oh, I thought it was part of New Year’s. That’s for–
– [Asa] That one’s for health? – I was like, that was for health? The beans, the bacon? Okay. – Okay, dinner clean up. Christmas clean up. Gettin’ it done. Christmas is over y’all. It’s done, no more.
– [Priscilla] No! – No more festivities. No more happiness. It’s plain old winter. It’s like the worst time of the year. January, February, nobody likes you. March, you’re okay. We’re getting closer to spring. January, February! (blowing raspberry) (upbeat music) You are not helpful, do you know that? Just trying to, (rustling) stop, get off! Getting attacked in the process. – What are you doing? It’s like baby wearing, that’s
what I feel like with her. To get anything done,
if you just hold her, then we can get it done, and
she doesn’t mess with it. – [Asa] She wants so badly
to mess with it though, mom. – [Priscilla] Yeah, look at her. Oh my gosh, oh my goodness, okay. – [Asa] You need to get your child. – She’s fine. – [Asa] Look, she’s like, “guys, you’re taking my toys away.” (microphone rustling)
Gosh, the microphone! It’s like, “guys, those are my toys.” – [Priscilla] Oh, she wants
to lay them on the ground. – Come on, let’s go. Up to your room, let’s go.
(Abbie groaning) Yeah, you can go chill out
up there for a little bit. You can’t do stuff like that, let’s go. Come on. Upstairs. Abbie knocked the ornaments over. She just grabbed them on the couch and like yanked them
down all over the place. Nothing broke so that’s like, like we haven’t had no
broken ornaments this year, so that’s actually way
different from previous years. Isn’t that, Isaiah?
– Yeah. – We have typically it broke
ornaments every single year. Somehow, they all survived. That spill, she just dumps things. She enjoys it, she likes
getting a rise out of everybody. She likes the reaction to it, so that reinforces the behavior. It’s hard not to react
to things like that. – Why isn’t Easter coming sooner? – [Asa] Priscilla just had an epiphany. Abbie, what have you been doing? – Eating celery, that’s fine. She can have that. – We should probably do
celery more than carrots? – [Asa] Yeah, carrots are added carbs. But we can leave just a vegetable tray. Like an assorted, not a
tray, those are expensive. An assortment of vegetables.
– They’re good for your eyes. – [Asa] What are? – Carrots. – [Asa] Sweetheart,
that’s what parents tell their children to make them eat carrots. – [Priscilla] No, my papa ate
that all the time growing up. – [Asa] Okay, that’s
what grandparents tell their grandchildren to eat greens. – [Isaiah] How’s his glasses he need? – [Asa] Raise your hand
if you wear glasses. You’re the only one. – I don’t wear them. (people laughing) – That’s like the food solution. I’m sure people will comment that before. They’re gonna be like,
“I told you to do that.” – I knew it. – Not fruit though,
fruit’s too high in sugar and she’ll just consume all of it. Not that you can’t eat fruit. Just not gross quantities of it. Abbie, you gonna have the most fiber. (muffled chatter) Look, you have celery blood on your face. – [Summer] I got it. – So, Abbie has a new trick. I got to tell you guys about. Come here, Priscilla. We got to tell– – She’s sitting here with
her cup and her veggie tray. – We gotta talk about it
quietly so she doesn’t hear us. So, Abigail has been, she’ll go upstairs and this is great,
like, we can’t stop her. – Independence is awesome. – Yeah, we can’t stop
her because she’s also voiding the toilet,
she’s using the toilet. Every time she does, she
just did it again upstairs. Yeah, when she came down naked. But, this is what she’s doing. She’s going to the bathroom on her own. She’ll go upstairs, she’ll
go hang out in her room or whatever, and then we
won’t hear for a minute. Then we go right upstairs and
she has gone to the bathroom on her own and then gotten in the shower. – Yeah. – ‘Cause that’s her routine
when Priscilla’s in the shower. She’ll go up there,
she’ll sit on the toilet and she’ll get in the shower with mom. What she discovered, on our shower, the temperature’s pre-set. Like you set it where you
want it and it stays there. You know, all you have to
do is turn it on or off. So, that’s good. She’s not gonna burn herself, she’s not gonna take a cold shower. But, she’ll sit down and she’ll strip down and get naked in the shower on her own. And she thinks it’s the
most glorious thing ever. – Yeah and like everyday. Sometimes, a couple of times. – Brandy came the day before yesterday, I was here with Ab, and she’s like, “Where’s Ab?” And I’m like, she’s up in her room. She’s like, “Oh, okay.” So Brandy went up there to just hang out with her for a minute, she’s like, “She’s not in her room.” I’m like, I know where she is. So, I had to go get her in the shower so she could do therapy. – And we don’t have, so I know
some people would be like, “Just lock your doors.” The problem is we live in
a hundred year old home and we cannot even shut our doors. – Well, I need to get a skeleton key ’cause I don’t wanna replace the doorknobs with like modern ones. So, you can get skeleton keys made. So, I wanna get that made for the house so she’ll have that on. Our door, we’ll have to sand it down so it fits in the door frame. Yeah, the house has
shifted in a hundred years. – I keep trying to put
stuff in front of it and she’s like, I’m a bit,
like she can push stuff. – So, we have some things to do. ‘Cause it’s not something we
want her to continue to do. But, it’s awesome that
she has the independence. And the only reason not to
do it is just convenience. Because it’s like, you know,
getting ready to go somewhere. Oh, Abbie’s in the shower,
you know what I mean? Or havin’ to run up and down
the stairs all day long. I would like you to be
able to get up to her room without being policed and
you know, managed all day. It’s still freakin’ awesome. – Well, and she loves going up to her room and doing all the sensory
stuff we have sittin’ up there and hauled in blankets and
all her things. (cat meows) – [Asa] That means let me go mom. – No, she’s okay.
(Asa chuckling) – So, such great news, such a cool thing. That’s independence, that’s what it is. So much progression. Why are you sittin’ in the dark? – So, you can’t see me. – Look at that smile. – [Asa] How is it? – Maybe vegetables without the ranch dip? – [Asa] Hey, you skipping
those tomatoes, huh? That’s my girl, pound it. – [Priscilla] Get a tomato. Eat it. – [Summer] She loves it. – [Asa] She’s like, no, gross. – [Priscilla] Eat the tomato. Come on, team tomato. – [Summer] She took my drink. That’s mom’s water. – [Asa] That’s awesome Ab. – Go wash your hands though. – [Asa] I’m down with that. – Let’s take this out though– – [Asa] She likes the dip, mom. – Yeah, but she’s making
a mess with that one. (water trickling) – [Asa] We could put a little bit on each piece for her, you know. – Look at that face. Someone’s goodness gracious,
let me help you out. Oh! – [Asa] Tell everybody and
say, “eat your vegetables.” Tell ’em. Go like this. Say, “eat your vegetables.” Yeah, vegetables. Eat ’em, rock on. Close out, say, “Bye, everybody.” Bye.
(TV static) – [Summer] Great idea, dad. (woman laughing) – [Asa] You don’t grab the branch end. She’s like, “yuck!” – [Summer] No, grab– – [Asa] Oh, Ab, I’m so proud of you. You’re progressing so much.
(food crunching) Still wrong end. – [Priscilla] I am not a celery fan. Gramps would be so proud right now. He loves celery. – [Summer] I think she
likes the crunchiness. – [Asa] Please don’t take away
Christmas, humans, please.

  1. Abbie is doing so well! I am so proud of her! I still think a video of how Summer and Abbie communicates would be cool

  2. Soo uhmmm my Christmas tree was up from Christmas 2018 until this past Christmas 😂😂😂 it's still up right now….
    BUT I promise I am not going to leave it up this whole year also.🤷😂 Bahaha

  3. In Ireland most people would take the Christmas decorations down after Little Christmas / Women Christmas (6th Jan).
    Fab vlog as always x

  4. Most parents have to make their teenager’s take a shower. Abbie doesn’t wait to get out of the shoer😂🤣😍😍😍

  5. Nooo, Christmas isn't done until 3 Kings Day which is January 6th. Then you can pack away the decorations. But not before. Can't have the 3 wise men come and the manger is already packed away.

  6. Bought my asd son a vr headset had it two days then broke it Screen smashed due to meltdown 300 pounds down the drain One unhappy mummy bear

  7. Isaiah and Summer look like my daughter with the TikToks! 😂 every time I look at her, she’s dancing in front of her phone too! Hahaha!!!

  8. Great idea with the veggie tray for her to snack on! I wonder if you left out a bowl of lettuce, if she would snack on it 😂 I think that would be equally comical and cute haha

  9. Every New Years Day we have Sauerkraut and sausage with mashed potatoes and mrs. Grass noodles. It’s a German thing.

    Our decorations went up the week before Thanksgiving and started to come down December 30th. Both our trees are still up. They come down last.

  10. Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving and are put away on Jan 6th (the Epiphany) … after the 12 Days of Christmas.

  11. In Ireland we have little Christmas and I usually take mine down after that on the 7th of Jan lol, not everyone does it this way but it's how my family do it

  12. Priscilla somebody should have helped you undecorate that tree. Love you guys and I have an autistic nephew he is verbal . He loves hismusic

  13. I do decor 12/1 -1/6 (Little Christmas/King’s Day/ Beginning of Carnival)

    Always do pork, black eyed peas & Cabbage … I’m not superstitious but more a traditionalist. Lol.

    February/March is great for our family … Mardi Gras!!! Living in NOLA suburbs gives the kids a whole week off.

  14. We wait until January 21st for my Great Opas birthday because I heard Christmas was his favorite holiday. He passed away long before I was born, so I never got to meet him. We’ve always kept it up this long.

  15. Watching Abbie enjoying the veggies with dip all over here made me laugh. 😂 She is doing a lot more on her own and getting so big. Thanks Maass family for sharing your Holidays with us. I enjoy all of your videos. 🙂🌹💞

  16. I watch Pricilla hold the kitty upside down like a baby. Kitties do not like to be held that way. Try holding her the other way, she will not fidget as much and might like hanging out more. Just some friendly advice from a cat Momma😊

  17. remember the days Cilla didn’t want filmed without makeup and in her pjs? i used to be like that leaving the house, now i just roll right out the door without a care 😂 i do have an 8 month old & 20 month old I use as excuses but they sleep 7-7, i’m just lazy 😆

  18. We get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and put all the decorations out then too and put it all away a day or 2 after Christmas. I have three boys and we get alot for Xmas so I need all the space I can get immediately.

  19. We take down our Christmas decor on Jan 1st or Jan 2nd and you are right, Jan and Feb are some serious winter Blues

  20. Hey Priscilla, I was taught that the Christmas tree comes down on January 6th which is known as little Christmas. It supposedly the day the three wise men arrived. That’s our tradition. Putting up the tree, we try to have it up for my daughters birthday which is December 10th. Our heat is so drying that putting it up any sooner we would just have a dry brittle fire hazard by Christmas.

  21. My stepdad was from northern Florida, and we still have black-eyed peas and greens on New Year's Day, even ten years after he passed away. I put my Christmas stuff up on New Year's eve. I have this weird superstition about it being out New Year's Day and after.

  22. I put up my Christmas decor after January 6. I’m from Mexico and we celebrate the 3 wise Man that took presents to baby Jesus. And in our tradition is like Santa bring toys to the kids. But in México is the 3 wise men. And then we cut the Rosca is oval bread with dry fruit and inside the put little baby’s and then every cuts their on piece in the Rosca and if you cut it and the baby is inside the piece you cut on February 2 the day of the Candelaria you have to make or buy tamales and share it with your family and friends. We serve the Rosca with Hot chocolateThe abuelita kind.

  23. Yay for veggies!!! You should see if she likes kale chips. You might be able replace a lot of her usual snacks with a veggie type snack.

  24. Oh my goodness i thoughttge prosperity meal for new years was only done in the caribbean specifically trinidad

  25. My cousin is married to a guy from hondarus. Apparently it is bad luck he thinks to take his tree down before the 6th for a Spanish holiday.

  26. Yes!! Black eyed peas, collards, and cornbread every new year!! Do you guys put vinegar in your greens? If not, you should def try it, so yummy!

  27. I got my family the same Christmas PJ’s that Pricilla is wearing! (Old navy?!?) Super cute! But I was annoyed that the women’s must have been made from a different material Bc it wrinkled so bad in the wash. My boys’ and husband’s came out of the dryer looking like it was ironed and amazing! Did you have the same problem?!?

  28. I just don’t do cats 🤦🏾‍♀️

    {EDIT} Water is a sensory thing for my son lol
    So I never have problems with my BOY taking a shower/bath

  29. I'm mainly a fan of January 1st, because new year's, the 17th, because it's my husband and my anniversary, and the 25th, seeing as it's my birthday.

  30. I hate eating tomatoes, sauce is ok but not normal ones.
    In general i dont like raw veggies that much, cooked its ok most of the time

  31. I have to object to the “No one like February” comment. It has Valentine’s day and my birthday. So, yeah.

  32. She shouldn't be laying around, Laughing after just tipping over all the Christmas ornaments. I know you say if you react,that's what she wants but…y'all doing Something wrong! She was laughing.

  33. I'm not Southern, but I love greens, black-eyed peas, and cornbread… The last 2 aren't keto, but I'll cheat and eat those sometimes. LOL. The black-eyed peas from my hubby's garden are the best! 🤤

  34. We put up our Christmas lights and nativity scene in the front and decorations inside like…a few weeks before Christmas. We pick out our tree 2 or 3 weeks before Christmas. I take down everything before Jan. 1st. Well, this year we didn't take the outside stuff down until yesterday, I think. So Jan. 5th.

  35. Priscilla and Isaiah don't like beans? 😯 But there's nothing I don't like, so I'm an anomaly. LOL

  36. You could try a "Door Monkey" (amazon) for your bedroom door. It is usually for toddlers but it would work for you guys if you placed it near the tippy top of the door. I love that it can be opened from both sides of the door and it is fire marshal approved.


  38. For us, Christmas is over January 6th. Little Christmas, or women's Christmas "Oiche Nollaig na mBan" in Ireland. Traditionally it's supposed to be the day off that women get…after all the cooking of Christmas..!

  39. My mom has always believe that u have to eat at least 1 bite of black eyes peas on new year's day. I did when younger but just can't now. I can't that just don't set well with me. Lol

  40. My sister insisted that eating carrots was how her hair turned orange (she's a redhead but said that it was orange)!
