Isabel In Wonderland

I am still wending my way through my November Kit.  Sad, yet good at the same time.  LOL  I do love the papers in my kit and am looking forward to using them up in the next few weeks during our December break.  I just wish I had more time to use them up!

The pictures of Isabel's birthday combined with a Sketch Support Sketch (from book 8) were perfect for my November kit.

We started our December Countdown yesterday!  First up was writing a letter to Santa.  Yes, my kids still believe in Santa.  Firmly.  And we are just fine with that.  I found some cute printable paper for them to use and they got right to work. 

Isabel did not have to do much work.  She put down four "suggestions" and called it a day: Movie, gum, Polly Pocket, Barbie game for the DS.

Collin, however, got straight on the internet so he could write down the item numbers to every lego set over $50 that he did not have yet.  Every. stinkin. one!  (His reasoning:  Santa needed a good amount of ideas.  And Collin could fairly easily (in his mind) earn up to $50 to buy the other sets.  Over $50 was WAY harder.)  His list is huge!  He did tell Santa to just pick one thing off of it, but we still had a good talk about being selfish.  He will be revising his list tonight.

Pictures tomorrow of Day 2: Game night!  And I bought a new game: The Chronicles of Narnia.

ADORABLE! Where did you get the paper?

I wish I could write to Santa these days :-)

Love your page title - really gorgeous DLO too!
Had to laugh at the Santa lists though - I reckon Collin was showing great initiative as there's nothing worse than getting a duplicate set!!!

My children liked to give plenty of choice - along the lines of anything in the Argos catalogue on pages 253-376!!!
