the plan

December 18 2012 086

this is Lily’s first Christmas list

she actually wrote much of the “Dear Santa” herself

do you see the top wish on that list?

do you remember a hard lesson?

well, all of the toys that were taken away that day have been in the garage

Will and i decided months ago that we would mention to Lily if she would like Santa to try to find her old toys and sure enough, it is top priority on her list

sure Lily will get stocking stuffers and other presents from both Will and i but i think the most important present will be her dollhouse and old toys from Santa with a special note from him asking her to be good to her toys and be better about cleaning up

it has been months since that day and not only has she missed her toys but she has been very good about cleaning up

so…. i think lesson was learned

check!
