Here comes Santa Claus…

November 12, 2008

Well I saw it yesterday – first big Christmas display (that I’ve noticed)!

Damn Hallmark, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!

Secretly though it makes me happy because I love Christmas.

I especially love Christmas movies….well except for A Christmas Story, lol. I get a lot of flak for that.

Last year one of the radio stations started playing 24 hours of Christmas music a couple of weeks after Halloween. Okay, now I like Christmas music, but that’s taking it a little too far! I can only stand hearing Christina Aguilera sing “Santa Baby” so many times! Ok, once is enough, but that’s beside the point.

I’m thinking about taking a little road trip this winter so the boy can see some snow. He keeps asking me when the sky is going to let him make a snowman.

Around here, that’ll probably about the same time I win the lottery and my cat stops leaping onto my stomach while I’m asleep, haha.

Stop the Presses!

This is Nicholas’ pride and joy; a picture with Santa.

But you won’t believe what we went through to get it!

Here’s what happened: We heard about some big event going on at the North Pole, with all the famous characters- Santa, the Reindeer, the Mrs., and there were even rumors of Rudolph showing up (you know how he loves the spotlight).

Well we got there and couldn’t get in! Nicholas was on the Nice list (even after the questionable ‘Cat in the Toilet’ escapade), but apparently you have to bring a canned good as an entrance fee and I wasn’t prepared. All I had in my bag was a half eaten apple, some stale Cheerios, and two pairs of shorts Nick outgrew last year!

Anyway, we were determined. While I distracted the
guards (by bribing them for names on the Naughty list), Nicholas snuck onto the red and white carpet to meet his idol, Santa Claus.

It was a crazy scene! The Reindeer had all brought dates, and they were playing reindeer games, right there in the crowd. Of course, Rudolph stood back from it all, telling anyone who would listen about how he went down in history.

Meanwhile, Nick got up to Santa finally and whispered in his ear, “I know where you live, so you’d better take a picture with me!” Well of course Santa laughed, and agreed to a photo op with the little boy. The paparazzi ate it up! You might even see him on the six o’clock news, so keep an eye out for it.

 Nicholas has never been so happy, and thanks to the guards I now know who to blackmail at work!
