Maybe a year....

is about how long we have left to believe in Santa, I think.  Caroline's questions have gotten more and more specific about the hows and whys.  She refused to see Santa at the mall because "I know that's just a helper in a suit.  Santa can't be at all the malls at once."  How does Santa get all the way around the world in just one night?  And there's not a sleigh in the world big enough to carry everybody's toys!  How does he get in our house if Daddy locks the doors every night and we don't have a chimney?  I asked her if kids at school had been "talking" about Santa, but she said no.  I think my plan of action for now is to wait until she outright asks, because so far she has been content when I said I didn't know the answer to whichever question.  I remember my mom telling me about Santa although I had privately had my suspicions for a bit and I wasn't damaged or unduly harmed by the deception.  Heck, she still addresses presents to me from Santa!   :-)

Have a holly jolly.....EVERYTHING!

Yes, well, we've fallen off the blogging wagon just a bit.  It's hard to keep up on this with a busy  7 year old's life!  Just imagine how far behind it would be if we had more kids....hahaha    So here's what we have been up to lately.  This will take a couple of posts to catch up, so make sure to look at everything.

When there's a bargain at post-Christmas sales last year, Caroline gets her own Christmas tree in her room this year!  

Caroline wanted to learn how to make scrambled eggs.  And no, we didn't tell Daddy about this until he saw the picture!  She needs to be about two inches taller to reach the stovetop well.
