My apologies, Hawaii.
Oldest daughter was explaining to me
the fundamentals of Christmas.
Basically, it's like this:
the bigger the state you live in,
the bigger the present you get from Santa.
So, she taught me that Alaska is really lucky.
And bummer for Hawaii.
(her own words)
She informed me that since we are in Arizona
we should expect medium-sized gifts
from ol' Kris Kringle.
The children are feeling pretty lucky.
Good thing we aren't in Rhode Island.
Can you imagine how cool Russia must feel?
How would it be?
And since it is December,
we talk about Christmas all the time.
And not just Santa.
We get to talk about Jesus.
Because they ask about if Santa knows Jesus.
And what I think Santa brought Jesus for Christmas.
And does Mrs. Claus get to go with Santa when he delivers Jesus' present?
I think so.
And since we're on the subject of presents,
a very warm ♥Happy Birthday♥ to my youngest sister!
I l♥ve you.
Have an Alska-sized celebration! (or Russian-sized if you're feeling international.)
