Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

          OK, I know you might not get many letters from 48 year-olds but since you didn't get me my baby Alive doll, doll house and a real pair of roller skates  when I was little I figure you owe me one.

I am trying to keep the Christmas spirit but you see its a teensy weensy bit hard when my tree lights look like this

When every last stinking Christmas cookie turns out like this
                                          
                                                    source


And when it seems that every toy (no matter how simple) is never priced below

And if I hear Mariah Carey sing all I want for Christmas one more time I may end up in an institution!


My question to you is how do I get back my Christmas Spirit when I just feel crappy and stressed and a bit sad?

                                  Love,
                              Joanne ( you know the one who you didn't give a baby alive doll even though I was really good)

Dear Joanne,

          I see your dilemma and I think I have a way for you to get the Christmas Spirit back...








 Here's a reminder

I hope this helps.

                                                      Love, Santa


P.S. I think it's time to let go of the Baby Alive doll grudge.

Dear Santa,
 
                Thanks. I guess I needed a little reminder. I'm feeling a whole lot better now.




But since I have your attention...
                                   Can I have a Doll House?


                            

                                                      Love, Joanne

Dear Joanne,


                  UGH!!!!!!!

                                        Love, Santa

  2. Of course you can have a doll house AND a baby alive if you really really want one and even though I have reservations about the roller skates I believe there is a pair your size somewhere in the work shop. I'll have a word with Santa.

  6. Bless you Joanne! So often I get wrapped up in making sure we having everything for the day and forget the real reason for the season.

    P.S. I'd still want the baby doll too :)

  7. This was very cleverly presented. I think we all get so involved with everything that needs to be done and places to go that we need to take a minute to remember the real meaning of Christmas. Merry Cristmas to you Joanne! (a little early)

  8. Never satisfied, are we?

    Christmas is so stressful. It does help to let go of the expectations and remember that the expected One, the promised One came. That is really all that matters.

  9. Lol!! I hear you...it is such a balancing act this time of year. I am sending you a hug and don't forget to take that quiet time for yourself. :-)

  10. It doesn't hurt to be reminded now and then. I figure since I usually got what I wanted when I was a kid it's now payback time for me.
    Now I guess I'm the Little Drummer Boy as an old man.
