Santa Claus

The funniest thing happened the other day and I wanted to share. Well funny to me, but not so funny to Luke and Emma. We went to the mall to see Santa and sit on his knee and get a candy cane. You know the drill. It went rather well, especially considering my kids go from friendly to super shy in the blink of an eye and without warning. They even got a cool coloring book and a "homework" page from Santa to take home.

The next morning Luke and Emma come running out of their rooms with way too much enthusiasm at 6 in the morning yelling "SANTA! SANTA!" They quickly changed their mood when they realized there were no presents under the tree. They thought that because they had gone to see him the night before, he was coming right then. Poor things. How do you explain to a 3 year old he has to wait for a few more weeks. 3 hours is a lifetime to him, much less 3 weeks. Needless to say we had a sad day of disappointment and crying.

The reason I even bring it up is that tonight we got to see HIM again. Of course their wish list consisted of 1 thing between the 3 of them. "We want a Wii game." Unfortunately they are no where to be found but on Ebay for $200 more than normal. So here is our predicament. Normally it would be a funding issue, but we actually have the money and planned to get them one. But Santa's workshop did not produce enough product to meet demand and we don't have one for under our tree.

The search is on and we have not given up. We got a tip the other day that several stores have them available on Sunday morning. GREAT. So if we wait 'til Monday they will be gone, but if we go on see my predicament. (And if you don't it is a non issue so don't worry about it.)

I shall keep you posted, but in the meantime, if you know where I can get a Wii, let me know asap! We only have 11 shopping days left to find one!

Lish, we finally found a Wii for my mom in Del Rio and sent it to her. I'll keep my eye out! Can't wait to see you. XOXO

Lisha! I'm so excited to read your blog and see that we think strangely alike on many things. I love reading about your adventures. You're back in Idaho? I didn't realize you had a blog until I was finally going through my comments and clicked on yours. I'm so glad we can get updated on each other more than once a year now! Cuz I'm a really bad correspondent, if you hadn't already noticed... Love you!
