The Kids Visit with Santa

Last night we took the kids to the mall to see Santa. I didn't think we were going to get to go, but, Yay!, we borrowed a car and we all 5 got to go. Jace is asking Santa for a big Purple Present. He doesn't care what's in it he just wants a big purple present. Easy enough! Mallory isn't telling anyone what she asked Santa for because she wants to prove to her friends that Santa is real. Of course he's real! The kids all only asked for one thing and we'll see if tomorrow morning if their wishes came true! Now I'm off to sew some more because I have gifts to make to take back home. We leave in 3 more days! Yay!

Have a Wonderful, Safe and Blessed Christmas Eve!

Just a quick and random fact: "A Visit from St. Nicholas, better known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," was published in the Troy Sentinel on Dec. 23, 1823.
Today that poem turns 186.
It was first published anonymously, but was later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore.

Earl's hometown it Troy, NY. Every year he reminds me of this and every year the newspaper prints the story on the front page. I think it's a nice tradition.
