I love kids' Christmas wish lists. I love what it reveals about their little personality, what they love, and where they are in their growing up journey. To try to keep some control over the Christmas craziness, we tell our kids they can ask for three things from Santa. We explain that Jesus got three gifts, and we want to make sure Santa has room in his sleigh for everyone else's toys. Adhering to the three wish limit, here are our 2016 wish lists:
Barnes- a build-a-bear workshop that makes bears at home and two ninja turtle toys of Santa's choosing.
Frances- a lego Rapunzel castle, a doggie guitar, and shopkins.
Shepherd- Octonauts toys, a jack in the box, and a Mickey suitcase (which was Tinkertoys until just a few days ago)...and he often forgets the three wish limit and adds in a firehouse play doh set.
Ellis- he can't really tell us what he wants yet, but we're pretty sure he just wants to take whatever the big kids get.
Considering we've talked to Santa about ten times this season, I certainly hope these wishes come true on Sunday.
