"You'll shoot your eye out"

Lady Bug and Baby Bug have been so fun this year and I've already warned them all (Cuddle Bug most of all) that this will not be the Season of Complaining. They have given their lists and I have checked them twice but they will not be getting everything on their lists. They will be quite spoiled, though, don't you worry.

June Bug asked repeatedly for Spike the Dinosaur this year. We told him several times, "It is much too expensive and we're worried that Baby Bug will be afraid of it." The thing stands 3 feet tall and makes noises and walks around and does who knows what else. I told him that he really needed to think of some things that he wanted more and to make sure those things were on his list. But when the big day came to tell Santa what he wanted he whispered in Santa's ear, "I want Spike the Dinosaur." Spike the Dinosaur had become our Red Ryder BB Gun! There was just no way I was NOT going to get it for him after that. So, I can hardly wait for his expression when he finds it under the tree tomorrow morning! And my wallet was so thankful to have gotten the crazy thing for $50 less than the original price! There are lots of surprises in store for them this year and so I will have to have my camera surgically removed from my hand this weekend.

I should really go get dressed and get the sleigh van packed. Cooking is all done and the children are clean and napping. The scents of Christmas dinner are wrapped around my head like a gauze - turkey and ham Mmmm. I can hardly wait to post pictures from tonight.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
