Oliver asked for the $10,000 jeep up until the very last moment. When he woke up in the morning, this is what he found next to the plate of crumbled cookies (Santa left the head of the gingerbread man and the hook of a candycane):
Glad he took care of it.
More Christmas cheer:
At the end of the day, the boys did the annual Gingerbread Stomp. This is a tradition that The Husband initiated several years ago, when the elaborate gingerbread houses he constructed got very, very stale. He takes the house outside and puts it on the ground and then the boys go wild, stomping it to bits. Sometimes, they even eat a few pieces.This year he didn't have time to make one, but yours truly helped them to make a Spongebob Pineapple Gingerbread masterpiece that underwent The Stomp. I know. Very, very strange. It's sort of a combination of Lord of the Flies and pure, unmitigated fun.
Santa's off to bed.
