Christmas List, Crafts and Puppy Craziness

Here is Cinderella's letter for Santa.  From what I understand she had to figure out the spellings of the words on her own and I think she did good.  Her handwriting isn't as neat as usual but what she wrote more than makes up for it.  

See below:

Allow me to interpret:
Dear Santa,
I been good this year.  
I miss you.
Love, Cinderella

This child and her very unselfish heart always surprises me, but it shouldn't.  This is just who she is.  The first thing I think of when I think of her is her beautiful heart.  Those that know and love her will tell you the same thing.  She is so very sweet.

Christmas craft time yesterday after school:
Cinderella made a snowman and Sleeping Beauty made an elf.

Cinderella wanted to be a dog and have her sister pet her head.  Her sister climbed on for a ride!
 Who's there?!  Princess Furry Pants has taken to hiding back in The Tree That Hates Ornaments. 
Yeah, our tree straight up is rejecting our love and our ornaments.  UGH!  If it could chuck the ornaments at our heads I am sure it would...

Christmas Tree Shopping = A Fashion Faux Pas

Little Sleeping Beauty normally has an eye for fashion.  She will put outfits together and I promise you the next week very similar looks are in the fashion magazines.  On this day she demanded to wear this sundress.  And then I said we had to make it a warmer outfit.  This is what she came up with:
Two of a kind
 It was fine and dandy when I thought that, by the time we went to get our tree, she'd have moved on to another outfit.  Normally, one outfit a day just won't do.  But this day, Saturday, was apparently different.


 I should also mention she said quite loudly that someone was dressed weird.  I loudly replied, "Who are you to talk?!"  :o)

Um, yeah.  The fashion statement of the day:

And really, the outfit as a whole wasn't so bad.  The brown shoes and the Christmas hair bow just did me in.  She was proud.  She just knew she looked amazing.  And hey, confidence is everything.

Rubbing her hands together.  She found THE tree. 
 Oh goody, goody!  There's Cinderella!
 The tree.
Notice how little Sleeping Beauty is.
Always, with the mirrors and the quoting of Disney movies...
She was saying, "Mirror, mirror on the wall..."
For my records - "Om-nih-ments" is ornaments in Sleeping Beauty-speak.

And from today:
I guess the vanilla wafers were good to the last crumb.

Aunt Bethany Strikes the Crazies!

We have our very own "Aunt Bethany" from "Christmas Vacation" here.

You know, the old lady who brought the Jell-O Mold with cat food on top to Clark's house.  She wrapped up her cat because she's old, she doesn't have much money and so she takes things from around the house, wraps them up and gives them as gifts.

Sleeping Beauty has really gotten in the Christmas spirit.  She is going around, taking random stuff from around the house and wrapping things up as gifts for family and friends.  You know, because she is young and silly and doesn't have much money...

A new twist on re-gifting. 

The devastation below:

**Out shopping with my mom and Sleeping Beauty yesterday Sleeping Beauty saw Santa from a far holding a newborn baby.  She said, "Is THAT Baby JESUS?!?!?!"

Um, no sweetie.  And also, this baby was a little girl.  :)
