We've had four run-ins with Santa (so far) this month. Each time the children stop to say hello. Each time I have to hold Ollie back from cutting the line and jumping into Big Red's arms. Each time Buby asks for just one thing: Magic tricks (check!). The first two times Bleu asked for a big brown soft horse (check!). The third time she asked for a long purple school dress. The fourth time she didn't ask for anything. Ollie tends to smile and show off his belly button.
p.s. What a horrible tragedy in CT today. My heart aches for all the children,
teachers, and families at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
