Mommy's Christmas Memories

I think back and all I remember is the baking and smelling like cookie dough for days. And once my twins made hubby stake out our fireplace for Santa. Dressed in his uniform, begrudgingly staking out our gas fireplace for Santa to come so hubby could arrest him for breaking-and-entering.

My darlings were so cute then.

I was twenty pounds lighter then, too.

Years of holiday baking later...LOL.

Ah, good times. Next...puberty.


Happy holidays, all!

Did Hubby work out how many B&Es to charge him with? Not to mention eating all those cookies...

No, lol, it was that one time he was tasked with putting a BOLO out on Santa. Afterwards, their teacher had explained that Santa wasn't stealing anything. No cookies were mentioned.

Nowadays though, they write letters that start with Dear Daddy....

They are aware that NORAD tracks Santa every year and takes it very seriously, yes?

They're ten, going on eleven. I can't even fool them with gluten free cookies anymore.... lol

People who do not believe in Santa get underpants for Christmas from him.

Also, the Canadian Air Force is escorting him with fighter jets this year.

I LOVE the NORAD Santa tracker. Every year without fail, me, the computer and a bunch of men in uniform that don't know I am listening to them while sitting in my jammies.

i have only been with LJ a few years...and your stories were some of the first I read.....

Question for you: do you think you will ever do anything with the sequel for Standby, Reinventing Pavlov?

just curious because when I saw your journal entry I went back and looked at some of your works and then remembered i wondered about this...
