as is our ohana tradition this time of year, rain and april sat down, pencil in hand, and wrote their wish list for santa. of course we know the true meaning of christmas has little to do with santa, but we believe the spirit of christmas has a lot to do with him. we are happy to say that we all still believe in santa and the good things he represents. Christmas is our favorite time of the year (summer is a very close 2nd).
without any further delay, here’s rain’s wish list. apparently santa’s loaded. money is clearly no object in the clause household. whose kid is this? an iMac? nate, have you been talking to rain? if she gets all this stuff i’m asking for my own private island (with helicopter).
all i want is what’s coming to me. all i want is my fair share. :)
april’s list is somewhat more grounded.
here’s our little tree that we bought earlier this month. notice the sweet decorating job that rain and april did.
this next shot shows our favorite ornaments. can you guess whose is whose?
here’s some more of our favorites. we don’t really do the traditional glass ball and tinsel look. one of the things we love to do every year is pick up a new hallmark ornament (or four).
this last one below is actually tied for my favorite. it makes me smile every time i see it.
