It is hard to believe but after several weeks of preparation and anticipation it is all over. At least this year we were able to spread Christmas out over 3 days instead of trying to cram as much as possible into one day. We went to my Mom's on Sunday the 23rd, and then Santa came to our house while we were at church on the
24th, and finally the evening of the 25th we went to Kurt's sister's house for Christmas.
I don't know for sure, but belief in Santa may be over or almost over. This was something that happened while we were opening presents last night.
Kristen really wanted the dress, sweater, turtleneck and skirt that she saw at the Disney store last month, I told her no because it cost way to much. I was able to order the entire thing off of Disney shopping with a couple of codes. Only paid about 50 dollars for all 5 pieces. Anyway as she is opening the box that had the everything in it except for the dress, she is saying a Minnie sweater, another Minnie sweater, A Minnie skirt and then all of the sudden, you got the outfit I wanted so bad. Thanks Mom and Dad. We looked at her and asked her why she was thanking us. She said that some presents were from Santa and some were from us. We reminded her that the present had the Santa wrapping paper on it. To which she looked at us and said, I think that you are Santa. I guess the end of an era has arrived in our house. I will admit I feel a little sad knowing that there is no one who believes anymore.
I won't admit to being Santa, but I have a feeling we will no longer be able to pull off the Santa thing. I guess it is just another sign that my family is growing up and the little kids are gone.
