Once upon a time, my mom was in charge of her ward's Christmas dinner on a Friday night. We went.
Santa Claus (aka Bishop Baker with sunglasses on) was there and Molly was actually brave enough to sit on his lap (and give him the note she made for him at school). She told him she wanted an ice cream maker. Jack was too nervous to sit on his lap, but he did take a candy cane and say that he wanted a dinosaur.
Once upon a time my children played with shaving cream at school and I took Jack's picture.
Once upon a time, the kids had their annual Christmas program. They were all dappered up and looked splendid.
Molly wanted to sit on Santa's lap again after the school program. This time she told him that she wanted an ice cream maker (at least she was consistent). Jack was too nervous to sit on his lap, but he took a candy cane again and said he wanted a dinosaur (at least he's consistent, too).
