Tis the Season. . . .
The kids have suddenly realized, maybe because of the Christmas music, that the Holidays are approaching. Thus, we have been assaulted, this lovely Sabbath morning, by requests for all kinds of exciting Christmas presents. The children, of course, wrote their letters to Santa Claus months ago, but now that the season is officially here, they've gone into full begging/demanding mode. . . My husband and I are minding our own business, just trying to have a relatively stress-free bowl of raisin bran, and we're being attacked on all sides, particularly this morning with requests for Build a Bear. My husband commented that "They got a good racket going". Yeah, he's not kidding. $65 for a teddy bear?! Good Night! He has decided to give them all $5 gift cards from 7-Eleven. All right! : ) Did I forget to mention that we also have 3 birthdays coming up in the month of November. . . .
