In front of a hardware store, Jack Vale stands with his wife, a petite brunette who is noticeably pregnant--as in, baby's-hand-hanging-out pregnant. A bundle of lumber rests on the ground; they stare at it. The dilemma: How are they going to carry it to their truck?

My children stopped believing everything thing I told them once they learned Santa Claus is (spoiler alert) not real. Or was it when they discovered there were no giant ants living in the garage? Whichever the case, give it up to former Anaheim residents Chad and Jessica Collins, whose Christmas morning prank created a double negative of believability (unbelivability?) that should have their kids lapping up whatever they tell them going forward.
