a short, but expensive list

D's Christmas list
(I may have let him trace my letters after I saw the first two lines... he's new at this writing stuff!!)
D wrote a letter to Santa yesterday. We have never done this before. He is very excited! (and was a little bit irritated that it was not in the mail yet when he woke up this morning.) I asked him what he wanted and can you will not believe this (or maybe you will), but one of the first things he said he wanted was a calendar. Specifically, "one of those paper things with the numbers and pictures on it... like the one on the refrigerator with the turkey on it." Sure! I can get that for FREE at our bank. I mean, Santa can. I will let him know. (Or, I am almost positive one of our relatives will gift him one if she comes down to visit.) (That reminds me that I will need to have some kind of picture album of the kids ready to hand over as well.) Anyway, sorry I got sidetracked, his list continues with:
  • Train. (one with brakes that work)
  • Bullseye (from Toy Story... Santa and I talked and he already has this! Isn't that wonderful!?!)
  • Computer (hahaha!! wait, they actually do make laptops for children. And tablets.)
  • Cowboy boots (this request might have had some mommy influence)
He also tried making Ry and Rose's lists as well. Such as, Ry needs his own Legos and Rose needs a play kitchen with a microwave. Um, okay? Not sure why he was specific about the microwave. I totally understand the Lego situation, though. I get to listen to them everyday. (also, I talked to Santa about Legos and he already had those, too!)

I guess I better go get some things done now that I've brewed myself some more coffee. At 11am. Don't judge me.


  1. Haha!! Awesome list! My kids are asking for computers too...dream on ;)

  2. I literally laughed out loud at the calander-bringing/picture demanding relative mention. So spot-on and hysterical. :D

    D's handwriting so reminds me of his father, ymmiT. Classic stuff.

    Oh, I love the new header. That chicken next to the picture of you looks like a Gigantor chicken about to round the corner and devour you. It builds suspense. That's a good picture of you, BTW. I mean, there are lots of those, but it's perfect for the blog.

  3. Oh, dern. It's a rooster about to devour you. Sorry, I'm not up-to-date on my farm animals.
