Well I just finished my (5th?) annual Santa Claus routine for my semi-sleeping kids. These 5 minutes are the highlight of my year! I hope I'm able to do it at least 4 more times (my son is almost 3), and perpetuate one of the most magical aspects of an all-too-brief childhood.
May God Bless all children everywhere, and may the less fortunate not have to continue to suffer for the shortcomings of adults.
My one son is 18 and my other son is 9, I am taking 5 minute rest tonight of my duties. My 19 year old just said. Good night, I am going to bed. I asked him why, and he said, that he doesn't want to see the Christmas tree until tommorrow when all of the presents are there. So he went to his room until the morning. Ya gotta love it! HO HO HO and Happy Holidays to All!!!
My 8 yr old was pretty wound up last night. He said "I can't get to sleep" but 10 minutes later he was out and we snuck around to put out the goodies. We, in the United States of America are truly blessed and also spoiled. We have alot to be thankful for as evidenced by what was under the tree this morning. Merry Christmas to all and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year
