Calvin: Mommy, do you want Santa to bring you a present?
Calvin: So do I, so we better go to sleep
Me: You're right, we better go to sleep right now.
(5 seconds later)
Calvin: I want Santa to bring me Star Wars toys and Lightening McQueen toys... and I want him to bring Daddy Star Wars toys... and maybe some ballerina things for Emme and maybe some ballerina things for you too Mommy.
Me: What about Leona?
Calvin: Well, Tom & Karen brought her a new bouncy ball tonight, so she doesn't need anything else.
Me: But they brought you presents too...
Calvin: Ummm... Mommy, you need to quit talking to me so that we can go to sleep so that Santa can come and bring me Star Wars toys and Lightening McQueen toys!
It's been a great Christmas so far. Today we made sugar cookies for Santa and decorated them with food color markers... they were really pretty cool, my grandma gave them to me for my birthday (thanks Grammy!) and the kids were quite impressed that we got to draw right on the cookies. For dinner we had pizza and chocolate milk then read a Christmas Story "Room for a Little One" (thanks Nana), the kids then opened up one present (a new pair of jammies) and got ready for bed. Tom and Karen (my uncle and aunt) came by and brought presents that the kids got to open too. Tomorrow, we'll open gifts and get ready for the day then head to Klamath Falls for a few days. I'll post Christmas pictures later... probably when we get back from Klamath.
I hope everyone has a very fun, yet relaxing Christmas time. Enjoy time with family and friends and be safe in all your travels.
