Making lists & checking 'em twice


This year, I didn't have the girls make Christmas Lists to mail to Santa.

Mostly because I wanted to take the focus off of what they would be receiving, and also because since it was rumored that Santa might be cutting back a little this year, I didn't want for the girls to open all their gifts only to find Santa didn't deliver everything they'd ask for.... and have them disappointed the rest of the day.

SOOO....we made "reverse Christmas lists".

We all sat down together by the Christmas Tree. We imagined that money was no object, the sky was the limit, and we made a list of what we would give for Christmas to those we love.

I wrote it all down word for word, exactly as the girls said it. Here's some of my favorite ones:

(I thought this one was awesome; Jesse of course made it even more funny by making a reference to how having a lot of money and "buying" people, especially people such as Oprah, was a practice that was abolished when Lincoln was in office....it was pretty funny.)

(I feel like I should send a copy of this to Huffy's advertising department....apparently they're doing a pretty good job because Mariah could have just said "a bike" but she phrased it as if she were a walking Huffy commercial)

So those were their lists. It was pretty fun (and entertaining) to do, so I'm thinking maybe we'll make it a tradition. Take some of the pressure off Santa.
