The Best Christmas Yet!

What a fun Christmas. This year was really magical for Zander (4yrs).

Let me start by saying whenever anyone asked what Zander wanted for Christmas he would reply, "Anything. I will like whatever Santa gives me. I like everything...but I do need socks. None of mine fit me!" In my defense he DOES have socks that fit him, but one of my least favorite chores is putting away clean laundry. I don't know why, it just seems to finish drying at very inconvenient times:) Well Zander is referring to my not matching his socks up and putting them into his drawer. We have a laundry basket half full for mismatched socks. Whenever he goes to put on his he gets frustrated looking for his. By the way, I matched ALL the socks this week...his drawers are stocked!

Christmas Eve was a lot of fun. My sister Jacque, Aunt Duque, spent the night. We baked cookies for Santa and watched a xmas movie. Zander was so excited, Gavin went to bed early he wasn't feeling well. When it was time to go to bed we set out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. We then wrote Santa a note. It read:

Dear Santa,

I love cookies.

I love presents.

I want toys.

Do you want to give me some presents?

Love, Zander

After thirty minutes of lying in bed Zander called me into his room. He told me that I had to make sure I don't leave the xmas lights on for may cause a fire. Just make sure I clean the living room so Santa doesn't trip and fall or step on anything in the dark!

Sounds like a great Christmas! It is certainly a lot more fun to see the holiday magic through the kiddo's eyes!
