Premature Santa discussion


I had the "Santa's watching" talk with Bram on Monday. Two days later, I have been asked, "Is today the day Santa is coming?" 4,000,356,984 times.

And that is not exaggerating one bit. Promise.

One funny and positive Santa aspect is, when Bram does or says something ugly, I stop and look around like someone is watching. My eyes all big and freaked out. Maybe nod my head up at the sky or point to Bram and mouth fake words in the air, like "yep, he isn't listening" as if I am really talking to Santa or a random elf. This leaves him in quite a panic and he immediately snaps back into shape.

It is going to be a loooong, yet very entertaining, 6 weeks. I love the holidays!!!

Girl you can milk that for longer if you know what your doing. Hell I would shoot for 6 months out of the year while he's as young as he is. Until about 5 then go with 2 months. Seriously, it's amazing how much better they listen this time of year.

That's one cute fellow you got!

I took that pic last Christmas. Just had rec'd my fancy Nikon and this came out first shot. My in laws bought him the beautiful old timey firetruck.

During the holidays all of my pics go down and Christmas pics go up. This one is my favorite so far!

Hey, girls. I create a color-each-day-to-Santa Advent calendar each year. I'll post it on my blog in a couple of weeks and then will be glad to mail you one if you want it for your kids. This is the 20th year for our family to do it.....started when my brother brought the first one home from Kindergarten. He's 36 now!

My secretary had a blast last year with her little girls and The Elf on the Shelf.
