In years past Santa has actually climbed out of our chimney into our living room. This year Miss E didn’t think Santa would be traveling as easily on his sleigh with no snow. Santa just rang in the doorbell and stopped by for a visit after our church service on Christmas Eve. He was about to embark on a very busy night. The girls were a little nervous by Santa’s presence in the living room but warmed up as he pulled out a few gifts from his bag.
Santa delivered the kids a couple toys, a movie series for the teenager along with a bag of kitten food and said they will be getting kittens in the spring. The next morning as Grandpa Eldon walked by Miss E and Nana at our house, Miss E said “Grandpa walks like Santa!” Nana said, “Oh you think so?” Miss E again confirmed, “Yes! Grandpa walks like Santa.”
They don’t look like a like thankfully. They just walk a like. Whew.
In case you doubt 14 year olds can experience the same excitement and joy on Christmas as young children, we witnessed they can. My parents surprised Hunter with an iPad.
