Christmas Tree

We usually wait until mid December–once it is cold and snowy out–to go look for our Christmas tree.  This year we decided to look while Mark was still home for Thanksgiving. It was so nice when we went that jackets were optional!

We always look for a tree that is at as tall as Mark.  At first we thought we would not find a good tree again this year. Many of the trees were lopsided or dry looking.  However, Megan and Adrian found one!

Megan was excited to discover that Santa was around.  She enjoyed being able to ask for snow and then was given a candy cane.  She managed to persuade all of the kids to come talk to Santa.

When “Bob, age 18” (Audrey) asked for snow, Santa said “snow is already taken” and would not let the kids ask for it again. She replied with “something better than coal?”  Santa told her that she had to work harder to get that.  Adrian asked for wider chimneys while Mark requested taller door frames.  Andrea asked for ice cream.

They informed Santa their goal was to make him smile and they hope that he had a wonderful day. I think the children succeeded.

I appreciate your comments!
