I asked the boys if they wanted to write letters to Santa. Easton got so excited because he had never done it before. It was really funny to hear what they wanted to say, because I had no idea what to expect.
Peyton saying "chesse"
Cole getting "too tired to write any more so you have to mom"
Cole's Letter to Santa:
When are my presents going to come? B.O.B. Wrap presents in boxes. I love mommy. And I love Easton and dad and Pey Pey and myself. Love Cole
Easton writing his letter
Easton's Letter to Santa:
Dear Santa Clause,
I don't know what I want for Christmas. You can choose, I want it to be a surprise. I'll save you some cookies and milk and some napkins just in case your hands get dirty, and you put the whole cookie in your milk and then you put in your whole hand. You can't slide down the chimney because it's not a big square. You can just come in the door, just try not to wake us up because what if I see you? Drive carefully. Don't crash. And can I know the magic words that make the sleigh and reindeer go?
Letters all decorated in envelopes
Another night we made snowmen. I didn't really have any specific ideas as what to use for them but the boys really wanted to make "snowmen that can be inside". I just grabbed a bunch of craft stuff and they pretty much put them together on their own. I was rather impressed. Peyton's ended up being a couple styrofoam balls with a ton of holes in it. He kept pulling them apart and sticking them back on the toothpicks, always acting like he had created a masterpiece.
