Santa was pleased with Henry this year!

Many households have a festive Christmas Eve tradition that involves leaving some liquid refreshment by the fireplace for Santa to enjoy when he visits during the night. But domestic goddess that I am not-so-much... I didn't make any cookies this year and as usual I was out of milk... so we left carrots and a beer.
Santa, jolly, grateful fella that he is.. rewarded Henry with a gift that made him run with scissors to open the box.

You see, Henry emailed me about 3 weeks before Christmas with a link to the only thing he wanted this year. A Lego Death Star with all the characters. And he kept checking the Lego website everyday until a few days before Christmas when he sadly saw that they had SOLD OUT. We looked on eBay and Amazon and Googled everywhere to find one, but we could only find sellers who were gouging little kids for $500 bucks apiece, so we gave up. ;-)

And then a box appeared under the tree...

Henry thinks we should leave Santa a beer or two next year and ask for an Xbox 360, a plasma TV for his room and Hellboy the video game. What do you think?

I love to see a boy excited about Legos!!
When I was in Jr. Hi, my dad thought that we'd get better presents by leaving Santa something a little different...and from that year a new tradition was born at out house...we left a ham sandwich and a beer...and of course, the carrots!!
Happy New Year to you and Henry and the rest of the family!!

Ask Santa to bring me Wentworth Miller. I'll provide the beer.

Just think what Henry would have gotten if he left Santa a bottle of Patron.
