Spin Cycle--I've Been Good Girl

It's that time of year again.  With Christmas fast approaching, writing a letter to Santa is in order.  So here goes:

Dear Santa,

Hi!  Seems this letter thing is becoming an annual tradition.  Thought I'd ask how you are?  Doing well?  I hope so.  Both the boys are eagerly waiting for your visit. They have lots of hopes that you will deliver the goods Christmas morning.
Now for me. I've tried to be good this year. there have been times when I've been snapish and irritable, but I have been trying to make those moment be few and far between.  I know asking for anything seems greedy, but if you don't ask, you could end up with underwear.  No one wants underwear for Christmas.(Well, there are some exceptions to this rule, but Nick can take care of that OK?) So now to a short list:
  • Bruiser to be fully and completely potty trained.  I can't say how much I want this one.  He's working on it, but still needs to perfect the process.
  • A four cup glass measuring cup. 
  • A programmable Crock Pot.  I start things in the crock pot early in the morning.  Having the ability to have the pot turn to keep warm would expand the recipe choices. Using the crock pot is so very convenient, I'd like to be able to use it more.
  • Fun fuzzy socks.
  • A new watch.  My current one has stopped changing the date.  I never knew how much I used the date function until it stopped working.  I need it to be a bit rugged, I'm hard on watches.  It needs to have a traditional face and the date function. 
  • A hot beverage travel mug--that holds 20 oz. at least.
  • Something sparkly--a necklace or ring.  It might be nice to get a peridot ring in sterling silver to replace the one I lost this summer under the deck.  I looked for it, but it is most definitely gone.
  • A pretty, warm sweater.
  • A cool candle holder, or a nice smelling Yankee Candle.
  • A soft warm blanket to cuddle up under.
  • New, pretty wine glasses.
  • Funky, fun garbage bowl for scraps when cooking.
  • Time.  I know I ask for this every year, but I really wish time could slow down or at least I could have more of it to enjoy my boys and husband.  Right now I keep blinking and the kids are growing and time keeps slipping by so fast.
OK, so maybe not so short a list.  But the more ideas the more chance of getting something good. Anyway Santa, we are all looking forward to seeing you this Christmas. Hope your trip is uneventful and smooth.
Until next year,

Now what would your letter to Santa look like?  Spin it up and link up with Gretchen and Ginny Marie, they would love to have you!

  1. Oh, yes, yes, yes. The programmable Crockpot? Excellent choice. I think that you have indeed been a good girl, and deserve some nice new things. I hope Santa reads your blog!

    Thanks for linking with The Spin Cycle!

  2. I could use a lot of the things on this list, too! And no joke, I really do want a 4 cup measuring cup for Christmas. The biggest one I have is only two cups! A 4 cup one would make cooking for my family a little easier. :)

  3. I agree with Ginny, a 4-cup glass measuring cup would be delightful! Great list! I hope you get at least something from your list this year. You should update us on what you do receive. It would be fun to compare lists. :)

  4. Time! Yes! Oh boy, could I use more time. I was even thinking of putting that in my Santa letter, but I think I'm ending up with a different list. We'll see. My letter is still in the works.

  5. I hear you on the potty training and crock pot. I would love for my crock pot to shut off after 4 hours and have a temperature probe. I hate when dinner is over done.

    My little guy needs to get potty training down for preschool. I feel the clock is ticking and the floor has been mopped one to many times.


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
