Christmas 2009

Here is my now 5 year old granddaughter visiting Santa this past (now) year. She is growing up too fast. She came to my room early that morning, sort of hanging her head a bit, and told me she was a little bit afraid to go see Santa. I asked why and she said she would have to tell him she "had only been half good" the past year. I asked her if she had tried really hard to be good and of course she responded yes. I suggested she tell him that part, too. However, her mother later told her that she had heard she was on the good list and then she wasn't so concerned about going! She told him exactly what she wanted, an ice cream set with play doh and a hamburger set with play doh. She got the ice cream set. Oh, and a new fancy metallic purple bike, which is so fancy, I should post that photo! Christmas is sure more fun with little children around. Their wonder and amazement and ability to totally live their fantasies is just the best.

What a beautiful little girl and such a prickly conscience!! Your advice was great. Yes, grandchildren are wonderful!
