You better watch out, you better not CRY

Saturday was our ward's Christmas party. After breakfast, Santa came and we stood in line with the kids so they could sit on his lap. Chloe was scared to death of him last year, so I was happy when she agreed to go and visit him this year. But, of course, when it was our turn, Chloe turned shy and needed lots of coaxing to sit on Santa's lap. She finally did and would only talk to him after he pulled candy canes out of his bag for her. (He was nice enough to give her 2). When asked what she wanted for Christmas she whispered just one request: "Jammies." Unfortunately, Ben and I have not gotten her any pajamas for Christmas. Luckily, Aunt Amanda and Uncle Neil have already told us that is what they got for Chloe, so we are in luck. You guys will be the heroes this Christmas because apparently the only thing she wants is pajamas! We also will enjoy the Christmases of simple, innocent requests. As we stood in line, we heard other kids shouting "I want a Wii" or "I want a Nintendo and an Ipod!" We'll take pajamas while we can get it!

Mitchell was just sad that he was not allowed to eat his candy cane.

I am very excited to be the hero for Christmas. For once I may beat out Catherine for "Favorite Aunt!"
