Santa Claus Meltdown



Avery has been loving Santa Claus this year and points to everything with a picture of him, gets excited, and says "Sanna Claus". It is so dang cute! We took the kids to the Mall a couple of weeks ago to sit on Santa's lap. Ashtyn wasn't shy at all, but seeing him in person (instead of on a kitchen towel) made Jordyn and Avery a little nervous. The only way to get them on his lap was for me to sit on it also. I guess I caught the Christmas spirit and the whole idea of why we sit on Santa's lap because my wish list just started spewing from my mouth. "Forget what my kids want, Santa, what about me?" I want; I want; I need; I need......

  • Ipod
  • True Religion jeans
  • New perfume
  • Snow board
  • Elliptical
  • Maid
  • Cook
  • Nanny
  • 10 fewer pounds
  • Bigger boobs
  • Smaller butt
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Makeover
  • Shopping spree to dress my new, HOT self
  • I don't sound vain at all, do I?

The list goes on and on, and mall security was finally called to force me off Santa' lap. I threw a terrible tantrum ("I wasn't finished; Let me speak") and made an embarrasing scene, but hey, I bet it will pay off on Christmas morning when my new boobs are under the tree.

Of course I didn't act like such a brat, but the memories of me as a child sitting on Santa's lap came flooding back. My list is actually not that big this year as I feel pretty blessed to have so many wonderful things in my life. Most importantly, my family-my great husband and adorable daughters. I'm also thankful for a loving Savior who paid the ultimate price for me to be happy and able to return to him one day. I think teaching my children about Christ is the greatest gift I could ever give them. What a better time than Christmas to feel of his spirit all around and share his love with others.

Hope all of you are feeling the spirit of Christmas as the last week is upon us and the mad dash to get everything done sets in. Good Luck!

I want some new boobs under my tree too! (But I'll wait until I'm done having babies)
You crack me up! Gina

How did you get a hold of my list? Jolea already gave me some "new boobs"-- you have to take them off at the end of the day but they were a heck of a lot cheaper than surgery and you can throw them in the wash! Hope Ashtyn gets to feeling better! Can't wait to see you guys
