Santa Claus came to town

The girls knew we were having a small party last Sunday, but they weren’t aware Santa was the guest of honor—at least not until he rang the doorbell.

Santa had presents for the girls and their friends, and he entertained discussion of some rather long wish lists.

Ava has never again referenced the conversation she had with Bryan this summer, perhaps choosing to forget it completely.  Olivia believes entirely, and seemed obviously concerned her ability to secure a spot on the nice list.

It will be a close call, but I think she’ll make it.

    You know what? I bet Ava remembered your reaction and started believing again because she knows it made you so sad when she didn’t. Or the threat of what would happen to her if she told her sister about the conversation really sunk in. Regardless, she’s a pretty good kid for never mentioning it again. And, I bet Santa appreciates that Olivia’s a little bit mischevious as much as I do. Both of these girls are just so neat and special.
