Dear Santa Jr.

The kids are excited about Christmas, but they're not in the over-the-top, frenzied mode yet, which is GOOD.
We finally got down to writing our letters to Santa last night (I know, bad mom). Here are the requests:


A Pound Puppy (with one butterscotch ear and one white ear with butterscotch spots):

Littlest Pet Shop Collector Tin (if you look this up, you will often see it called "rare" - a word that makes slacker Santa shudder):


A marker. When pressed, he will specify black.

And a Wonka Bar.

A candy cane

And mittens

I think Santa`s getting off pretty easy at the Simpson house.

Wow, your kids are so sweet and un-demanding. I hope slacker Santa doesn't have issues finding that collector's edition tin.

I looked up the collector tin, because while I'm done Christmas shopping, I still have a present to buy for an upcoming birthday, and this looked like something My turning-seven girl would like. Cheapest one from a seller listed at Amazon is $85.99. So, not cheap, and my kid won't be getting it, but had it been one of only two things requested, I might go for it. At least, while rare and thus expensive, it is not completely unattainable. On second thought, EIGHTY-FIVE FRICKIN' DOLLARS?!?! For a few little plastic puppies? I don't think so.

I loved that your kids each only requested two things, and Bart's (I first typed his real name - it's taking me some time to get used to this) and Maggie's crack me up. And they still have Pound Puppies??

When she first asked for the LPS tin, we saw it in the store for $35 - still outrageous for plastic puppies, but not $85. If I can't find it, Santa will just be writing a letter of apology with a kick-ass substitution.

Ahhh, I love it! I love the simplicity. All Matthew has asked for is a train set. Which is big and expensive but he does not know that and he not asked for anything else which I think is sweet. May they always stay simple and loving in their tastes!

Santa is a lucky guy. Leave him some good milk and cookies.

Brother wants an "X-box" or a "Playstation 6." Frankly, I don't even know if a Playstation of that number exists.

Jelly, if he could speak, would want unfettered access to all cabinents and things that a parental unit is either taking away from him or shooing him away from.

Mittens! Markers! Oh, I love it.

Bart is a man of few words, eh?

A marker? That is so funny! Love it.

Those might be the cutest wish lists I've ever seen!

One year I asked for tape. Since we didn't believe in Santa I did the next best thing and asked my grandpa. And, I opened up about 10 rolls of scotch magic tape.
I think I was 5. I will never forget that gift because they took me so seriously and knew I really really loved my tape.
Matthew asked for a red light sabre. Thank goodness for a blogger who found me one! I looked everywhere.

A marker....I think I love your Bart. Merry Christmas to all your sweet children!
