A Christmas Miracle...

She moves pretty quick these days, but look! I caught a photo!

(Cue hushed, both-calm-and-excited documentary guy's voice...)

"Pictured below is the elusive Peanut child, seen here in the wilds of Gramma's house, playing with the felt Santa tree..."
"My Santa Tree?"
Normally moving at the speed of sound, this is one difficult toddler to catch a picture of! But there you have it...Peanut and her Santa tree. I am one happy Gramma this week, and I can't wait until the day of presents! Mindy told me that Peanut is a little confused at all the questions she's gotten since they landed here in our town. "Are you ready to see Santa?" "What do you want Santa to bring you?" "Have you been a good girl? What do you think Santa will bring you?" 

The questions are normal enough in late December, but what some don't know is that Santa came to Peanut before Peanut came to Ohio! lol! Her super smart parents decided to have a talk with the ol' boy, and he agreed to make an early stop where they live before their big trip! It saves them the long haul home with all the new gifties from Santa (they'll certainly have more than enough gifties from grandparents to haul), and it allowed them to celebrate their first Christmas together, just the way they wanted to. I do believe that was the greatest gift Santa gave them this year! But still, these people keep asking Peanut about Santa, and she just looks at them. I wonder what she's thinking... ("Don't you know that Santa has already come?" "Didn't he bring YOU anything?" "Were YOU a good girl? Maybe not, if he didn't leave you any presents yet...") I can only imagine.

So here we are, only one more wake-up until December 25th, and Santa is everywhere. Santa trees, Santa juice, and the Santa dance (it's hilarious! I really hope I can get some video of that!) are everywhere I look, and I couldn't be happier! I hope that you are enjoying the season as much as we are, and that you are finding love and joy and hope in your life. Keep your eyes open, it's everywhere!

Have you been good? What do you think Santa will bring you?

  1. I've been VERY good! And I think Santa is bringing me new slippers to keep my tootsies warm.

    I know the best present you all have this year is having Peanut's daddy home with you! Merry Christmas to you all!
