I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Hey Santa!

So it can't be Christmas until we sit on Santa's knee and tell him our wish for Christmas! This year we saw him early, the week before Thanksgiving, at the Enchanted Forest.

Brennen's wish is for a Buzz Lightyear gun, which is different from what he told us previously. The rule in our family though is once you tell Santa, you can't change your mind, so Santa still had plenty of time to pull it off!

Aubree's wish is for the new Harry Potter Scene It game with all 8 movies. Or pretty much anything to do with Harry Potter.

Tyson's wish is for an iPod. Can Santa do that? I guess so, if you are very good!

Cambree is still not much of a Santa fan, but she still managed to tell him she wanted Dora.

Kaden thought he was too cool for Santa (Gosh I hate this growing up stuff), but was informed that if he didn't talk to the big man, his wish may not be granted. So he stood there (too big for his lap mom!) and told him he wanted a General Grevious Lightsaber.
