all I want for christmas

is...a JOB.
my mom does a great job collaborating with Santa every year,
and I don't think we ever really appreciate the effort it
takes to ask for, and then purchase

{8 christmas wish lists}.

I think it's the "Wish" part that always throws us maybe that
is what prompts us to ask for exactly whatever
it is that we feel like asking for.

She always has encouraged dreaming. Also, please note the suck-ups in this family,
made obvious through their very "endearing" requests this year. No names included.


I also love how what everybody asks for speaks volumes of their personality.

I can't wait for tomorrow! the buddies
are going to be so excited.

santa, take off your beard so I can see if you're uncle glen!

Merry Christmas everybody!


  1. i love this post so much. Also i love Andre and wish he was my brother because really the only thing he wants is Capri Suns and a DVD player. What a nice guy.

  2. no, roxanne. Moonlight Magic is NOT a book. It is one of the best-smelling fragrances that Bath & Body Works has ever carried. THAT'S what Moonlight Magic is. Just to clear things up...

  3. Samantha! for a second i thought you were gonna say best-SELLING. you know, like a book best-selling...oh whatever
