Christmas Time

My kids were all syked about Christmas. Texas asked Santa for a blue Lightning McQueen and Marilyn asked for a pink one right after her brother request the blue one. She's mentioned that she wanted a Jessy doll, but she didn't dare to tell Santa what she really wanted to his face. It's funny what turns into their favorite gifts.
Texas got his Dinoco blue Lightning McQueen and Santa also got him one of those fancy ramps sets for his new Lightning McQueen to drive on but he was needing some new bedding so Santa gave him a Lightning McQueen bedding set that he got at Walmart on Black Friday (Santa had help from Auntie Phat). Texas cracks up when I take the pillow and hit him in the face and tell him that Fin McMissile keeps on crashing. "That Fin McMissile needs to learn how to drive!" He keeps on taking the blanket off his bed and he's ask me to cuddle. He's five so that's getting a little weird but I love him so I'll let it slide.
Marilyn's favorite Snow white shirt was getting too small so Santa got her a bigger one. On Christmas day she changed her outfit eight times (I counted). I think it was mostly because she wanted to try everything on. Instead of telling grandma and grandpa that she got a Jessy doll she told them that she got princess shirts. She wore each outfit for at least an hour and I think everything that she wore got some kind of goobers on it. Her happiness is giving me extra laundry. It's so worth the extra laundry.

It's Logical

Me, "Miss Marilyn, are you wearing your brother's underwear?"
It's clear that she is wearing boys undies under her shorts. You can clearly see the band of the undies because her pants are always fall down because of the lack of a behind that I genetically passed down to her.
Marilyn says. "No, these are not his underwear".
Then I say, "Who's underwear are they then?"
Marilyn replys, "These are my underwear 'cause they had a two on them".
Checked the size and they are a size 2T. I guess they are too small for her brother and I should of boxed them up. Texas wears a size six. I never boxed them up she grabbed them out of the laundry pile and put them on because she was out of panties. She was out of panties because she's been preoccupied with playing. Texas' briefs fit better than her baggy panties. Maybe she should wear her brothers underwear every day. I'll be giggling about this every time she bends over and instead of seeing her little plumbers crack I see those tractor underwear.

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,
There are some helper Santas that are better than others. Let me start off with the ones that my children do not like. They notice when Santa says "Next" right after the last child's picture was shot. They really do not like the Santas that look at the parents right after the child says what they want and then they make a comment to the parent. The kids want your attention. Please do not turn to me and ask, "Do they really make those things?" or "Lets get real, does your kid really want that?". Once you do this my children will start screaming or pouting. Why do they start throwing a fit? Because they can hear you. They now think that Santa doesn't want to give them what they want for Christmas.
The good Santas: Bass Pro has some of the best Santas. They greet the children with, "Oh I've been waiting for you". They complement my kids outfits even though my kids picked out their clothes (and it's obvious that they did pick out their outfits). They act as if they know the child with the strange comments like "I think you've grown a little sense last year". When the child ask for a odd gift, they simply say, "I'll have to ask if my elves can make that for you" or "That's a very rare toy". They excuse the children with something to remember him like, "Be good and I get you that (super rare toy)" or "I hope you come and visit me next year". These things really make a big difference.

This is the FIRST time that I've seen both of my kids with pleasant faces talking to Santa. A week earlier we saw the mall Santa. With the mall Santa, Marilyn was screaming and Texas has a somber face and looked like he wanted to leave.

Most of our other Santa pictures are like this.
