Every year at Christmas time, Santa comes to our little town and parks his jolly behind at a huge pinetree in the center of our neighborhood. We call it The Pinetree Party. Word got out that this is the real Santa and so Kelli and Jodi brought their kids to town to let them plead their case to St. Nick. Or maybe it was that word got out that donuts and hot chocolate were available in abundance.
Sophie asked for make-up and a swim dog. Caleb's greatest wish is for an alarm clock.
Christian and Tucker wish for Emily.
Then, while Kelli and Brandt went to Kate's violin recital, I pumped all of the kids full of sugar decorating gingerbread houses.
I think it might have been more sugar than Jill was accustomed to.
