Well, this morning the kids got up waaay earlier than usual. Tip-toed down the stairs to see if Santa had visited, after all they have been really good this past year. So, good that Santa had to read their minds to figure out what they wanted because when they visited him at our annual brunch they said “surprise me” when the jolly guy asked what they were hoping for this Christmas. Santa responded to me with “You’re a lucky, mom!” While I wasn’t sure if that was lucky as in “get whatever” or lucky as in “good luck.”
But anyway, we hear the kids downstairs speaking quietly to each other.
“The big one is mine — what do you think is in there?”
“Should we wait for mommy and daddy to wake up?”
“I told you Santa loves coming here because of the sushi!”
“Is there a present for Blooey?” (– our pet. Ooops! Good thing I have back up “yeah, heh, must have left his at grandma’s house.Phew!)
We always have this chat about how Santa works all year with his elves and Mrs. Claus for Christmas Eve. How he can deliver so many wishes in one night? How many cookies he can eat? He’s being doing this for hundreds of years and it’s amazing how seamless his deliveries can be.
Then, this morning…I found this in my inbox. It’s no surprise that even Santa can count on Canadian Tire to help deliver presents on time! Phew!
Take a look and see how Canadian Tire saved Santa!
