Now that Halloween is Over
Sunday morning as I was working on this blog, John was busily working on his Christmas list for Santa. I wasn't paying him much attention but I remember him saying something like, "Oh there isn't enough room. I'll have to send him another letter."
I've never had a child write a letter to Santa, other than a school assignment. And in that case they've always had a hard time coming up with something they want. At 6 all Lizzy wanted was unsharpened pencils and chocolate.
So what does a 6-year-old boy want? Letter number 1: A metal detector, a robin hood costume, a tree fort, a wooden snow man that he can paint, a cash register, a barbecue, a hippity hop and a balance board. Letter number 2:. nutcracker, an indian tent with a fake axe and a "cwivar fll of earose and a boe." Bonus points for those who can decipher John's spelling.
