WWW - Part #2 Christmas with kids

This weeks prompt, memory 2
Jim and I moved to Florida in May of 2007, and this past Christmas we traveled back to spend the holidays with our family and friends. We spent the week at my brothers, and I have to say Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning were so so so much fun with my nieces. Since Jim and I don't have any of our own yet, we had never got to experience the joy of Christmas with kids.
I won't bore you with all of the details, but I will share their letters to Santa. Kara, who is the youngest insisted on leaving money (which she took from her own piggy bank) for Santa. She said she is sure he likes all the milk, but would need some money for coffee when he got cold. And how cute is it that she reassured Santa not to worry if he didn't deliver on getting her a Nintendo WII (which for the record he did not get her one, and it was never even mentioned after the note).

They are such sweet girls!

I have two kids so I really get this. They are young enough that my husband likes to "manage" their expectations. So they always want what they are getting. It sort of takes some of the fun out. But I guess no one gets too disappointed.

Thanks for visiting and leaving nice comments on my poem today.

I am sure Santa had a nice cup of Coffee or Tea. Not sure how much $2.35 would get you . That's my great niece for you. How sweet.
