Dear Santa . . .



Dear Santa:  Last weekend when we saw you at the mall, my Mom and I were so excited that the line was not very long.  I hadn't had a chance to chat with you yet this year!  As we got closer and closer, my Mom mentioned that it looked like you had a weird outfit on.   Well really, I didn't think it was that strange as my dad (Mr. Tennis) often wears mock-turtlenecks.  But, I did think the color was a little different.  I mean, no offense Santa, but a purple colored mock-t doesn't really look very good with bright red Santa pants!  Was Mrs. Claus not around this morning to give you fashion advice? 

I could tell that my Mom was starting to freak out wonder how the photo would look with you in that purple mock-t!  Luckily, she asked the photo lady to ask if you wouldn't mind, to please put on your Santa jacket for the photo.  I know it was warm and you were probably roasting with little kids sitting on your lap all day, but you must admit, you look a lot better with your Santa jacket than a purple mock-t!  It made my Mom so happy, and you know that it's the little things that Mom's appreciate the most.  Thanks Santa, you're the best!

Love,

Maddy

P.S.  If it's not too much trouble, please don't forget that electric scooter for me and new chew toy for my dog, Muffy!

Lol! I wish I would have been brave enough to tell the Santa tha forgot to pull his beard up to pull it up a few years back!

Great picture, I LOVE Maddy's vest! Electric scooters must be the thing for 9 year olds this year!

Sooo funny, Jan :) I think Maddy looks precious and Santa's not looking too shabby, but I am sure would have been a site with his purple mock-t! Hope you are doing great :)

Oh my goodness. You don't know how much this post is making my morning. What a hoot! A purple mock-t! Really? Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog, Janet. I'm ready to start enjoying the holiday season after so much "life" this past week.

LOL!! Good for you Janet, you tell him what the proper Santa attire is.

We may attempt a Santa visit this weekend, last year was our first with G and W. In previous years they were afraid of him.

Have a wonderful weekend!
