Have you turned in your list?

Tonight after putting the kids to bed, I waited about 5 minutes and then eased into Taylor’s room. I flipped on the light and shut the door. To her great surprise there I sat next to her on her bed with a notebook and pen. She was squinting because her eyes were trying to re-adapt to the light, but I could still see the expression on her face like, “What is going on?”. I told her to whisper VERY quietly so that her mom and Trevin could not hear. Then I asked her, “What do you want for Christmas? You get to pick 5 things, whatever you want!”

She thought about it for awhile then said, “I was hoping someone would ever ask me what - I ever - I wanted!” She continued, “I really need a new Tea Party Set, BUT it has to be GLASS, not fake.”
2. Dress up dolls – “Disney Princess ones”
3. A small stuffed baby donkey – “To sleep with”
4. A Bed Canopy for HER bed – “Pink, Purple and Yellow”
5. Little Vacuum – “With the batteries already in it”

I then moved on to Trevin’s room with the same act, and received the same look. Here is the list he gave me…
1. A Spiderman Toy
2. A World like a Ball – “Globe” – apparently he seen this amazing thing at Sam’s Club and has not stopped talking about it for 3 days
3. A Tractor – “Yellow”
4. A Bike – “Green one”
5. A motorcycle “Red”

I then moved on to Deanna’s room with the same act, and received the same look. She said she had already been working on her list in Microsoft Word for a few months and that when she gets it completed she will email it to me.
