If you want Christmas pictures, don't look here.

I didn't take one Christmas picture this year. Not one. Why, you ask? Because I'm a bad mother and Christmas was so crazy with everything, I didn't bring my camera anywhere. I do like to share a good picture though so here's an oldie but goodie from 4 years ago, wee Anna and wee-wee Pearl. I found it on my PC last week and just had to share it because they both should win an award for cuteness. Don't you think?

Christmas was great. The girls had a great time opening all of their loot. I ended up spilling the beans to Anna about Santa because I screwed up on two of her 'Santa' gifts and put the wrong name (one Emma and one John M.). She looked very suspicious and she had every right to be. I told her about Santa a little while later and she took it well. She said she suspected it, but she was afraid she wouldn't get any gifts if she let on that she knew. So, that's that.

1 nosy 10-year-old + 1 scatterbrained mom = THERE IS NO SANTA!.

So, now the stress of Christmas is over and a new year is about to begin. Look out, 2006, here we come.

I can't believe you guys have had Pearl for so long! I remember when you got her! And look at little cute 6-year old Anna! Doesn't time fly?

Yes, they should both get awards for super cuteness! They are both adorable. The baby more than the kitty of course... : )

Happy belated Christmas to you too!! :) Sounds like it was great, and happy new year too!

Awww what a cute picture of cuties :-)

Sounds like you had a busy, good Christmas.

To find out there is no Santa at 10 is a good age. Usually by that age someone lets it out at school anyways.

Well, you took to little, and I took too many! I used to be bad with remembering my camera, but after much scolding from my in-laws, I remember now! Your Anna looks just beautiful with her kitty in that picture. Happy New Year!

She wot remeber the conversation next year if you don't bring it up. My kids were around 10 when they stopped believing. My daughter said the other day she knew earlier because on year scatter brained me wrapped their canta gifts in the same paper as their gifts from us. I told them santa shopped at wal mart for paper too.

Cute picture! I agree that 10 is an okay age to find out that there's no Santa. OR really, to find out that Santa is mommy. I'm sure I was younger than that. Good job, mom!

DaniGirl said...

Eh, 10 is a good age to find out. And now she can have fun helping keep the secret from the other kids. I loved that about being the big sister!

Glad you and your family had a nice Christmas, or at least you SAID you had a nice Christmas and without pictures we'll never know the truth!!

Ok, everyone above was so forgiving about the no pics...not me. I think you should be whipped. Especially since this was John's first REAL Christmas! I am just kidding, you know I always pick on you about this kind of stuff. Love yu Renee...
