Lifts the Lid
We haven't put much emphasis on the whole Santa Claus thing. Why let some mythical figure take all the credit for all those cool gifts our daughter will be getting under the tree this year? No, instead we're working with a theory I had heard many years ago before our daughter was even thought of.

Santa and his elves only make toys out of wood. He also comes by later and has contracts with the city to take up all of those Christmas trees we toss to the curb. Recycling them into fine wooden toy products that he'll give away next year. One year it was a set of wooden ABC blocks. Another year a few of those wooden pegged puzzles. Last year a wooden abacus and this year a tall wooden easel and chalkboard.

Squirt has been listening to Christmas songs and watching Holiday Specials on TV. Drawing her own conclusions but not quite yet asking questions. We asked her a question earlier this afternoon. "What is going to happen on Christmas Eve?"

She replied, "Santa will come up on the housetop. Then click, click, click...the reindeer land on top. He then lifts the lid, sneaks inside and puts presents under our tree!"

When you live in a trailer park and have no fireplace with chimney, Santa has got to get in somehow I suppose. According to our 4 year old daughter Santa has a master Spam key to "lift the lids" on every mobile home in Savannah.
