December 25,2008

It is over and we have survived. The house is full of happy and very tired kids in bed and a Mom that is posting just before she goes off to bed herself. These are my new pajamas and I plan on living in them.

I also got these super hot shoes which I wore as my Christmas outfit-forget the outfit who cares- I had the shoes.

The best part of the whole day started a couple of days ago. My oldest daughter wanted to write a letter telling Santa she wanted a picture of his reindeer. My younger sister and I started out in the middle of the night trying to get a photo at a local Christmas display with no real good results. So the next day she got on the computer with her boss and they printed some of the best reindeer pictures in America. She then wrapped them in a ribbon and left them next to the empty cookie plate. It was beautiful!!

Auntie helped her write the note to say Thanks and make her request.

She was so excited and brought them to every house we went to to show them off. "I can't believe he had these pictures." she says. It was perfect. I tried to photograph the letter and photos check it out......

This was the best Santa experience I have ever had.

I hope he was good to you. I wish the best of luck for the New Year. It will get better for us all!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I stumbled upon your blog from a link to "Top Centerville blogs" (or something similar) and enjoyed reading, I have a 7 year old that asked for a picture of Santa's elves making her toys and I couldn't pull that one off! Merry Christmas!
