Little Red came down with a sudden and severe cold on Saturday evening right as we were about to leave for the ward Christmas party. We sent Paul and Boy Blue, and we stayed home to rest. At bedtime, when he was starting to feel a little more like himself he had a meltdown because he realized that he had missed Santa Claus. We promised him on Monday we would take him to the mall to see Santa.
We were the only ones in line so we had a leisurely visit with the jolly old man, and when it came time to share his wish he surprised us. I expected him to ask for the Banshee, a licensed Cars toy that he has been coveting. Instead he asked for a gingerbread house.
I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised, I have been coveting the Gingerbread Architect book. There is definitely a theme here. We looooove all things cookies.
