You better not pout (especially if you're doing it in front of my mother while shopping at Target)!

When you think about it... It does seem a little far fetched that a guy who's outlived your grandfather's, grandfather's, grandfather's youngest son can still shimmy down an endless sea of chimneys delivering toys to good little girls and boys all over the world without even slowing down for a hot meal. If I ate cookies the way HE eats them, I would have been gone ten years ago! But the fact that he continues to show up every Christmas Eve without fail, is all the validation my daughter needs to keep the spirit alive....more

Funny Santa Photos With Even Funnier Captions

Ahhh, the obligatory Santa photo. It’s been around as long as the fat man himself. Or, er, the camera anyway. Thousands of downright hilarious Santa photo bloopers have been around just as long too. They now reside online of course, so Mom and Dad can sit down on the eve of Christmas with a tall glass of egg nog and enjoy a good laugh before the serious business of Christmas begins....more

"Santa's watching you..."-said Mom.

Image Credit: Jaclyn Janssen Via Flickr Tis’ the season Santa is watching.... This time of year provides great opportunity for teaching my kids the importance of their behavior; the tool being bribery. I love the fact that my children believe in Santa. I also love the fact that my children know the true meaning of Christmas. Together, these two beliefs make Christmas all the more joyful for them (and for me). ...more

Santa's last flight... Every mother's worst fear!

That’s my mom… And that’s Santa. *Nudge, nudge* *Wink, wink*Every year, without fail; we would gather around the frost covered glass of our living room window–and listen. As the familiar sound of the sleigh bells filled the air, the butterflies in my stomach would grow more alive; and then we'd hear him–crunching his way up our front porch stairs with a cheerful and boisterous hello.Ho! Ho! Ho!...more

Santa your Self

Every December, as I stand below and watch, jumping around, possibly clapping, my husband brings down the red and white Christmas box from the rafters in the garage.    Without a child in the house and now that I've decided for all time that I can't kill a tree for the holiday, the Christmas display is decidedly smaller, more compact, distilled to its very essence. Gone are the days of a 6-foot tree, draped in ornaments and lights....more
Thanks for the good cheer!  Will be decorating the house today, still have a child in the house ...more

My Daughter Told Other Kids She Doesn't Believe in Santa

Peaches told a significant portion of the second grade that she does not believe in Santa Claus. It is December after all, the time when many a seven-year-old heart turns to thoughts of presents and stockings and flying reindeer so, naturally, a conversation had sprung up about Santa’s impending travels. When one child shared that the hidden camera used to catch Santa’s visit to her home last year had failed to record his movements through her living room, the chatter became lively....more
