All I want for Christmas is...

Sitting with Santa, originally uploaded by MCuthbert.

We made our annual visit to see Santa at Brookwood Mall this evening.

Kendall's wish list was no surprise. She told him she wants a "big, big dollhouse" and a princess castle. She's been repeating the same two things for months.

Emily, on the other hand, threw us a curve. She told Santa that she wants a bulldog. This is a request she's been repeating as well, but not as a Christmas gift. She is well aware of the restriction we've imposed that we will not get a dog until she's seven. But apparently, Emily thought she could circumvent the waiting period by appeaing to Santa.

"Santa's not going to bring you a bulldog," Misty told her. "I'm sure he doesn't want to break our rule."

Of course, this caused a brief panic from Emily. "But I didn't ask him for anything else!," she said.

I promised her we could e-mail Santa tomorrow.
