wishes to Santa

The socks do not go well with the rest of the trimmings for Priscilla (our fab Christmas tree, which I photographed in my previous post sans the socks). But my girls hung it there to write their wishes to Santa. And so it must stay.

Speaking of wishes, the elder daughter asked for a drum kit while the little one asked for Baby All Gone.

If I know Santa, he's having the gifts wrapped already. Oh, I can't wait for Christmas day to see the look of joy and surprise on my children's faces. 

The excited ripping of the wrapper, the howls of delight and their big-eyed wonder, the first moments of tinkering with their new toys...these outweigh the real value of the toys itself. 

Priceless, as Mastercard, err Santa would say.
