Here Comes Santa Claus...


This is how Santa rolls in our neck of the woods. He arrived on a festooned camel, much to the delight of the kids in our community. Every year, he pops in for a family picture and a small gift. We had some explaining to do when Sojo received her gift, which was labeled Girl 7-9. Oops--we forgot to check the box for a boy gift instead. A big box of cool jewelry making items made Sojo doubt the magic of Santa for a minute--she could not understand why he didn't give her the same gift as all her guy friends who got Hot Wheel tracks and swords and such. With a bit of explaining about how busy he is right now, she understood, and we made a deal to always check the box that says boy in the future.


Here we are with the festooned camel and Santa!

And the simplicity of Sojo always makes me so in awe of her. This is her list to Santa. She did later add that she wants a Magic 8 ball, but I remember having a very long list each year. Fingers crossed that he brings her this Furby doll she has wanted forever. I also hear he has a major surprise for her that is something super fun for people living in the desert...

I love this. I love that Santa knows just where you are in this great big wonderful world and he comes adorned in whatever way suits that area. Yeah for Santa.
