Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

A Visit with the Big Guy

Well, the girls got to see Santa this week and what a visit it was. They were invited to join Santa for a ninety minute private audience in the caboose of the local Christmas train. Santa led story reading, caroling and lots of cookie consuming during the ninety minutes of fun. (Have I ever mentioned my children are the two most spoiled children in the world?)

La Nina, an old pro at Santa and never shy when it comes for asking for what she wants, told Santa her top items were high heeled shoes and clothes. (That's my five-year-old!) The Magster, who actually sat on his lap, told him she wanted LIttle Ponies. Of course, she never made eye contact with the big man, but hey, last year she wouldn't go within fifteen feet of the merry elf, so she made big progress.

In all of our conversations about her wish list, La Nina has never mentioned wanting clothes. Of course, the desire for shoes is not new: she always wants shoes. She also usually rounds out the wish list with make up and jewelry. She could be in for a tough Christmas morning. Likewise the Magster has never mentioned Little Ponies before, but she play with her all the time, so it's not surprising.

I ran out and finished my shopping for the girls last night as soon as these formal requests were in the books. Maggie's last day of school was today, so my available work time will be limited next week.
