Santa Came

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.


  1. Why is it that some of the best moments with the kids are Lord of the Flies-type moments?
    I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday. Keep writing!!!!

  2. What fun! I love the letter, the gnomes, the gingerbread stomp, the photos of the kids ..... really precious!

  3. so wonderful - makes me want to redo this christmas and make it better for my girls- maybe next year...

  4. I love the Gingerbread stomp. I have a big, stale gingerbread house in my kitchen that needs a good stomp!
