Every year I dread the build up of Christmas. So much work and then poof in 10 minutes it's over...well that is what it feels like to me- the scrooge. This year (of course at the last minute, my siblings and our older kids agreed to not exchange gifts...phew what a relief...I always hate the stress of buying stuff that others really don't want or need...and gift cards/certificates is really like just exchanging money...what happened to the days of gifts that were well thought out and made by hand??? Well, who has that kind of extra time??)
Anyhow, one of the highlights of Christmas for me, is Santa's visit on Christmas Eve...He comes every year, escorted by the Carson City sherriffs. Of course, being the redneck girl that I am, we have a Redneck CD in the car that sings about Santa not being here next year due to his DUI (peppermint Schnapps)...and of course the first year when Devon was very young he cried as Santa and the sirens left the house as he knew that meant no more Santa...good thing he knows now that the skinny santa that delivers their jammies on Christmas eve is just a Santa's helper as santa is getting ready for the "BIG NIGHT".
