Careful what you wish for!

This holiday season has been full of PURE JOY!  The excitement and magic are tangible in my 2.5 year old.  For example, IF she's good (for most of the day... she is a toddler after all), Santa turns on Christmas lights that are in a tree outside her bedroom window.  Each time she sees them she yells "Merry Christmas".  We have no idea where she learned to say that, but it certainly makes this Scrooge feel merry.  The first time she saw it, she ran to her Santa nightlight and said "Thank you"!

On Monday, we decided to take the girls to meet SANTA!  SO exciting!  I'll share that picture another day.  Today, I want to share the video I made of our first rehearsal.  As you will see, I had to help her edit her wish list:

Ha Ha Ha!  So glad I caught that on tape!  Not to ruin the awesomeness of that video, but I should mention that she had just discovered a Christmas mouse that "poops" (not sure why I put quotations there, but I'm keepin 'em) candy.  The POOP (love that word) reservoir quickly emptied and Hazel had been asking all day for me to fill it.

For the record, she ended up asking Santa for BOOKS and PURPLE TOYS for Heidi.  I have a feeling that Santa is so gonna nail it this year!
