WARNING-IF YOU STILL BELIEVE READ NO FURTHER.....
We broke the news about Santa to the girls last week. Holly was getting tired of the statements. "Kids on the bus are saying..." so when we saw the opportunity we decided to take it. When we told them, I think that they already knew in their heart. It was still a little sad, a little bit more of lost innocence.
The funny part was tonight. We were discussing that they still needed to get their pictures taken with Santa. I asked them what they wanted from him and they scoffed at the idea. We explained that they would still get presents from the north pole. This just started the conversation again and brought up more questions..."Did you bring the presents down in the middle of the night?" One question led to another, but the funniest statements were how somethings now made sense. Like how Santa really liked sugar cookies but wasn't so hot for milk.
Then they wanted to know about the Easter Bunny. "I suppose you are the ones that hid the eggs in the yard!"
"Yes is was us"
"Did you eat the carrots as well!"
"Some got put back into the bag"
"What ELSE have you been hiding!"
"What do you think about the Tooth Fairy?"
