So sorry I have not blogged this week: I have been single handedly trying to save this economy by making purchase after purchase. I think the market went up two points thanks to what I spent on stocking stuffers. You're welcome, Mr. Obama. My job here is done.

Complicated Boy left this note for our House Elf to take to Santa last night:

Dear Santa,
I hope I was not so greety and please don't give me only 1 presint.

Evin thow I was cinda bad and I powdid afyou times I am fathful to selabrat this holladay.

You and Jesis make cathlik pepole happy. The ones that beleve in you are real.
marry christmas.

Which led to some interesting discussions-starting with: we are not Catholic.

Complicated Boy was up late last night, worried he was on Santa's "Naughty" list. And while I secretly believe that he might be in the top 500, I told him he was on Santa's little known list: The Basically Nice but Sometimes Naughty List For People Who Try Hard To Do The Right Thing.

I hope all of you have the most wonderful & joyous Holiday.

I'm pretty sure I'm on the same list, so it can't be a surprise that my kids are too!

Thanks for your help with the economy--I thought I was going to have to do it all!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, fellow un-Catholics! : )

This letter is the single greatest thing I've read all day. I love how Santa and Jesus makes the Catholics happy. What an awesome observation!

I pray that starting next year WE CAN ALL JUST GET ALONG:

Catholics, Baptists, Jews, Muslims, Mormans and all those misguided people who voted for Dubya not once, but TWICE.

Merry Xmas Lorrie Dear and thank you for making our world a brighter, better place.

there's a third list? THAT explains why I always got presents. And to think, I could have been so much worse!

Merry christmas, sister!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Merry Christmas! Us Catholics do love the J-man.

Jen said...

"You and Jesis make cathlik pepole happy." I think that is the sweetest thing I've ever read.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah to you!

"You and Jesis make cathlik pepole happy"

This kid would SO fit in my family:)

Give that boy an extra cookie.

He and Zoe might make a nice couple.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Have a Great Holiday.

I knew Santa had to be involved in that whole Catholic guilt trip. He's a very smart boy. So funny.

Rachael said...

I have been you partner and accomplice in saving the economy too. I went out Monday to finish up just a few "odds and ends" and later that night, Visa fraud protection called, just to check in and make sure.

Also, happy to know about that little known list. I've got one or two kids who might be on it too.

Now THAT letter (and my awesome mugs!) make me smile - that is truly a treasure!!

Jane! said...

Maybe he thinks you'd be happier if you WERE Catholic? They are some happy peeps this time of year.

What a cutie. You should keep him.

Excellent use of the Third List.

Let Cboy know that that is the list mostly everybody is on.

Hope the celebration was Merry!

It's nice to know my kids aren't the only ones who worry about being ont he naughty list...I often wonder if they have to 'worry' about then doesn't that make them guilty?

Hope you had a wonderfyl holiday!
