Christmas Eve

I hope Santa Paws uses the list above when it comes to getting my furbabies their Christmas presents! I know they can't wait to see what's inside their stockings on Christmas morning! Though the wrapping paper and any empty box will be more exciting for them.

Can you believe it's Christmas Eve? I sure can't. I feel like I've lost a few weeks. I can't blame it on missing time due to alien abduction. It's just everyday life with a traveling spouse. The weeks he's not home seem to go extra long while the ones when he's home sprint by!

One big item got checked off my To Do list yesterday and I'm so grateful. My youngest actually asked to see Santa Claus. She usually keeps her distance from him. Of course, even though we had all of December to go, we didn't. That left yesterday or today.

So after hubby picked them up from my parents' house, he drove to Bridgeport Village in Tualatin, Oregon. They were in line before Santa arrived at his house. The older two kids actually joined in so I have a pic with all three! Score!!!! I only have a few pictures with Santa because all three of the kidlets went through stages where they wouldn't get near the guy in the red suit!

To my utter surprise and amazement, Santa told them they were at the top of his nice list. Really? I wonder if that card Rose sent him after getting in trouble last week made a difference. Otherwise, Santa needs to check his magic ball or whatever he uses to see if kids have been naughty or nice.

Telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas really emphasized the difference between my eleven year old son and my eight year old daughter. Son wants an Xbox 360 with Kinect. On the lists they sent to Santa a few weeks ago, Rose added her name to that request in hopes two wanting that would warrant the gift, but yesterday she told Santa what she really wanted was a Barbie car.

Hmmm. A couple hundred dollars (no idea how much an XBOX costs, but a good grooming table vs. $20 or so. It'll be interesting to see what Santa brings them. Personally, I think they've still been naughty. But who am I to argue with Santa.

I also wanted to post this:

It reminds me of my latest release Firefighter Under the Mistletoe. Have you been kissing anyone under the mistletoe? Unfortunately, I haven't. We don't have any in the house due to the animals.

Enjoy your Christmas Eve!
