Dear Santa...

We wrote our letters to Santa the other day... the kids had a blast. I think if Mason could write his ideal letter it would go something like this:
"Dear Santa,
Love, Mason"
But after explaining to him that even though Santa is "magic" - it wouldn't be fair to bring him everything, this is what he came up with...
Yes, my SEVEN year old son is asking for "UnderArmor" for Christmas. And specific colors at that! I never, ever, EVER thought I'd have to worry about getting my kids "UnderArmor" until at LEAST Junior High! Seriously - it's a little crazy. But he knows that the "real football players" wear it - and therefore - he needs to have it. I'm fairly sure he thinks that if he wears it he'll be able to play better - or be guaranteed a spot in the NFL or something. I'm not sure what it is - but seriously. Ya gotta love the kid.
And my little Hal needed a few suggestions to get her going. However, after she got a start, she had no problem keepin' it going! Here is her list... "A VANITY"!! That is all she can talk about now. I don't think she knew what it was called at first - but after she asked me - now it's all she can talk about. She wants a vanity for her room. Oh good grief. Do I have anything on these lists purchased? Absolutely not!

Santa doesn't get a list from Cole this year. He will be happy with anything - and besides, Santa just "KNOWS" anyway.
So, as always, Christmas has creeped up on me and I am NOT READY - so here I am in the same boat as every year... wishing I had more time. But oh well - we do the best with what we have and we make it work. Christmas comes whether we like it or not. Even if the Grinch comes and steals all our presents. I wonder if my kids would buy that - - - maybe if I don't get my shopping done, I'll just tell them that the Grinch must've come and taken everything. Can you imagine the fit my kids would throw (one child in particular)?? Ya - I better not.

I wish my kids came up with better lists for santa. I think Santa has struggled a little this year trying ti find something for them because they won't say much. Laney anyway. Cute letters!
