Santa Makes Beds, too!!!

I KNEW I heard something coming from Nathan's room Christmas Eve night (while he was at his dad's), but I knew Nathan wasn't home, so I didn't think anything of it. I just thought it was "lonely mom syndrome."

Well, when Nathan came home later on Christmas day, I told him I heard noises and we decided to go check it out. The door was locked! I didn't do that! We unlocked the door and this is what happened!
**I think I was more excited than he was**

Santa Shoppe Rocks!!!

Nathan had his first Santa Shoppe experience at school this year. Which, makes sense since he's in Kindergarten this year! Anyway, when he came home he would NOT let me look in his bag like I always do. He had to wrap all the gifts he got first, then I could look in there. I knew he got his dad a coffee mug, his cousin a pencil and his step-brother stickers, but I had no clue what he got me.

I opened up that bag and unwrapped my gift and got teary eyed! He got me a sun windchime and a dragonfly suncatcher. The windchime - because he knows how much I love to hear the windchimes in the wind. The suncatcher - because he knows how much I love the sun. So incredibly thoughtful!

I will treasure these gifts for as long as I live!!! Much like my mom has kept the tiny vase I bought in the third grade. It sill sits on her dresser next to her jewelry box! I know I will always have these two in a very special place as well!!!

Santa Came!!!!

so, santa arrived at mom's a little earlier than normal this year, but we were kind of expecting that. the kids were upstairs looking through the window, franticlaly looking for santa and his sleigh. but, nathan finally had enough! he decided he was going to go downstairs cuz he "had a feeling santa was here". well, abuelo told the kids they should go downstairs "he didn't want them playing around uop there". so, down the stairs they went. whle ellis was overjoyed at all the gifts santa left, nathan on the other hand was devastated! he missed santa! he didn't see him! "i told you we needed to come downstairs" he says! he was de-ve-stay-ted!!! he finally calmed down a little when he saw that santa had eaten all but one bite of a cookie and drank all the milk AND the reindeer spilled their food out back and left tracks everywhere.

maybe next year i can see if santa will allow himself (or his backside) to be 'seen' so nathan doesn't get quite so upset......it's a tough one, i tell you!
