Vincent made the NAUGHTY LIST!!!!

For those of you who don't know... we have connections and talk to Santa!

I have an Uncle (Uncle Doug) who has an awesome job; he works with radio's. He has this really cool "radio" room with walkie-talkies and a whole bunch of other stuff that I don't know the names of.

Anyway, he as a radio tower in his back yard that is taller than his house. This special antenna is aimed right at the North Pole and can talk to anyone, anywhere in the whole world. Well, because of this, when I was growing up, we got to talk to Santa, in person, every year! We even know the elves and have special connections with them too.

When I was growing up, the elves would visit us all during the month of December and leave presents. Sometimes we could open them and sometimes we would have to put them under the tree. They would hide them in many sneaky places. For example: in a tree, at the door, in the bathtub, by the T.V. One elf even left a present on the roof of my house (this is when I lived in an underground house). This made Christmas very exciting and made it last the whole month of December. Now, the elves even visit my own kids and sometimes the neighbor kids (it is a good thing they know Vincent because they reap the benefits).

Anyway, to get to the point of this post...

Yesterday, Vincent was ROTTEN!!!!! He was mean and nasty from the moment he woke up in the morning until the minute he went to bed. That morning, I asked him to get dressed for school. Well, at that same moment in time, Lily happened to be innocently passing by and just to lash out at me, Vincent stuck his leg out and tripped her. She face planted it onto the hard wood floor and started to cry. He sassed me, interrupted Josh a few times while he was working, and the list goes on.

Well little did he know that SANTA WAS WATCHING and Elf Jingle too. This is what Vincent received this morning when he woke up. It was folded and had a bow on it and was placed on the piano where he would be SURE to see it...

Vincent,

Santa has been watching you and he asked for me to say,

That he wasn’t very happy with your actions yesterday.

You hurt your little sister and to your mom you spoke so badly.

You bothered dad while he was working so now I tell you sadly,

That you are on the NAUGHTY LIST dear Santa is upset!

If you don’t change your actions, then no presents you will get.

But this can all be fixed you see if you can change your ways,

Like being nice and listening for many, many days.

Santa really loves you and he knows you can be good.

So be loving to your family, like you know you should.

Santa will check up you. I suggest that you be nice.

And if you’re wise, then you will think about taking my advice.

Elf Jingle


Vincent saw the letter on the piano, and then saw Lily's present sitting next to it. He said, "Lily got a present and all I got was a stupid letter." I told him to just read it and see what it said. He started to read it and then I felt it would be better if I read it because I would be able to read it with the right emotion.

When I was done reading the letter, I looked at him, and his eyes welled up with tears and I noticed he was trying to fight crying. I didn't want him to be totally devastated, so, to break some tension, I smirked and said, "you're buuusssted!" He laughed and then I asked him what the letter said to him. He said "I am on the naughty list" and then proceeded to ask me, "Mommy, what does it mean to change my ways?"

The letter worked like a charm and let's just say... He was perfect the rest of the day:)
