"Lillian," I said, "Today I've got a surprise for you. Guess where we're going? I'm taking you to meet someone."
"It's someone that has white hair and wears red."
"Is it Grandma?"
"No . . . This is someone who has white hair, wears red and has a big white beard."
"Oh! Great Grandma!"
"No! Great Grandma doesn't have a beard, this is someone who drives a sleigh."
"No! Someone who has lots of reindeer friends!"
"NO! This is someone who comes to our house on Christmas Eve, comes down the chimney and brings us lots of presents!"
"Oh!" She proudly paused and said, "It's Uncle Kendall!"
I give up. She really needs to get out more.
Congratulations to Christie from Tremonton, Utah for winning the Triple Holiday Giveaway--she's won the pop up card from Crankbunny, the set of buttons from Minor Thread and the poppy bobby pins from Foundling. More this coming Saturday. . .
And congratulations to Kathryn from Anchorage for winning the Great Alaskan TourSaver coupon book. It should make for a fun summer.
For more reads today I'd recommend the Make it from Scratch Carnival or Tiny Talk Tuesday.
