It's gotten to the point around here that when one of the kids ask for a new toy I will say, "Well, you better tell Santa". Today while at Target Bubby dearly wanted another gun with foam bullets. I told him he should ask Santa for it.
Later after we were home he brings me a toy catalog we got in the mail yesterday. It has spy glasses AND a fire engine that shoots real water in it. He got VERY excited and said he NEEDED them. I told him he should begin writing a letter to Santa so he doesn't forget any of these toys. He asked if Santa would come down the chimney and I told him Santa would more likely come in the back door and we would leave it open for him.
Later I found this note to Santa taped to the OUTSIDE of the door. It explains in great detail what he would like for Christmas.
