My son Ryan woke up to sleigh bells, and a commotion in the living room. He woke straight up in the darkness, and ran down the hallway to see Santa placing presents under the the Christmas Tree. The fist thing he did is thank Santa for his presents. After eating some cookies and drinking some milk, he put his finger to his nose, and away he went to visit other good boys and girls!
My son had a permanent smile the rest of the morning, and was amazed that he was able to see Santa. He was saying that he wanted to catch Santa, and in fact, he did!
"And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;"
Merry Christmas everyone!
