All I Want For Christmas...

Every now and then, Berit is asked what she wants for Christmas. All along she's said, without fail, a purple sparkly dress with purple sparkly tights and purple sparkly shoes and a purple sparkly crown. We don't know where this comes from, but whatever. Unfortunately, Santa will not be delivering this to her, because when we first started Christmas shopping, we thought this was a passing fancy. Then, to tell the truth, we forgot about it. Now we're feeling like we don't want to buy anything else. The good news is that her Mimi and Grandpa are getting this for her for her birthday in February, so she'll eventually end up with this purple ensemble she's dreaming of.

Marta, on the other hand, just doesn't understand yet that Santa will be bringing gifts on Christmas. But I asked her tonight anyway, since it was a very Christmasy evening and we talked a lot about who's coming to stay with us on Christmas. Here's how it went:

Me: Marta, what would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?
Marta: Nom-nom-nom eats dinner with a silly look on her face
Me: Would you like Santa to bring you toys or books?
Marta: I want Santa to bring breakfast.

And frankly, if Marta opened a big box full of pancakes on Christmas morning, I think she'd be thrilled.
