Here Comes Santa Claus

Okay, I know I am supposed to be all excited that this jolly fat man is going to come see me on Christmas and bring me lots of cool presents but I am just not sure that him and I are going to get along. Mommy thought it would be good for me to meet the man himself, Santa, as they call him before the actual big day.

Mommy told me that boys and girls typically have a brief visit with him before he comes on Christmas. They tell him they have been good little boys and girls and what they want for Christmas.

So mommy took me out to meet 'Ole Jolly St. Nick a few weeks ago and needless to say...not a fan. I mean hello...PERSONAL SPACE. Look at him trying to touch me. Not cool dude...not cool.

Mommy seemed upset that I was not really digging the man in the red jump suit so I after a bit of negotiating (mommy gave me a candy cane) I decided to cut the rosy cheeked old man a break and act like we could get along for the sake of my mom.

I am hoping that since I did this for my mommy, a true outward gesture of love, Santa will still bring me those cool toys that mommy keeps telling me about. I guess that Mr. Claus will grow on me as the years pass and maybe we will even have a good mutual understanding. I will be good and he will bring the toys!

Happy Holidays from my family to yours!!! Oh yea, and have a good New Year!

The Season of Giving

This is the season of giving according to my mom. She said that we should not expect gifts from others but instead count our blessings and give what we can to others in need. Now don't get me wrong; mommy did promise that Santa Claus is coming to see me and I CAN'T WAIT!!

After thinking a bit about what my mommy was saying that we should not be so focused on what we receive I realized that I had actually already received the best gift a kid my age could ask for. I received my Uncle Matt home from Afghanistan. (this is my mommy's cousin but he is more like a brother to her -- hence Uncle Matt)He is over there fighting the war and has to play with bombs. It is a really dangerous and brave job that he has. So when I got to go with mommy to see him at the airport on Thanksgiving Day; it was the best gift I could have gotten. I don't think Santa can even top that!!

Check out my cool Uncle Matt!!
