First Grade Santa Fact

Oh. My. Word. I am so VERY tired. It's hard to believe after just a few days (ok, more than a few) you completely forget that talking ALL day and standing up ALL day is completely exhausting!
Even my kids were so tired I could only hear a faint whisper as kids talked about what they did over the break. It was like they were to tired to talk... and it was lovely!

Before the break one of my little girls had all kinds of Santa questions for me. 1) What did I ask Santa for? (I'm pretty sure she still pictured me sitting on Santa's lap.) When I told her I wanted a car she told me there was NO WAY Santa could fit that in his sleigh and that I should think of something else! (2) Did I know if Santa would deliver live animals? She really wanted a gerbil, but she wasn't sure if she should ask Santa for it if he couldn't deliver live animals. Well.....this morning she walked in proudly and said, "Hey Mrs. Tice- he does." "Who does what?" "SANTA delivers animals! I have a gerbil!" So there you have it folks....a little known Santa fact!

Hope everyone else who went back today has survived! And those of you who didn't have to go back enjoyed a cup of coffee in your pj's for the rest of us!
