A Visit with Santa

by | Dec 17, 2008 | Advent and Christmas, St. Nicholas | 4 comments

When we were at “The Farm” our children had the opportunity to visit with Santa, aka St. Nicholas. It was a first for them, and even though they knew that he wasn’t THEE St. Nicholas, they really enjoyed it!

Santa, of course, asked each one of them what they wanted for Christmas. Rascal’s response was the Playmobil Roman Arena, Twinkle Toes would really like a doll, and Chiquita said, “a present!!!! With a house for my little dollies inside!” CUTE!!!!

As for Captain, his response was “A book.” Santa replied, “A BOOK! Which book?” Captain said, “A war book.” Afterward, Santa told me that in all his years of being Santa Claus, he had never been asked for a book. =) He also said that when he asked Captain if he would like a candy cane, he replied, “No thank you.” And that that was a first too. I’ll have to see what we can do about that book. 😉

Snuggles didn’t want anything to do with Santa… He preferred hanging out with his Auntie Julianna. That is, until she tried to put him on the pretend pony!

    I don’t blame Snuggles. I prefer Julianna to Snuggles anyday!

    Last year, after standing in line for what seemed like forever at an old town pre-Christmas visit with Santa, my then newly 7yo listened to the children before her ask for laptops, cell phones, Xboxes and more. It came her turn, Santa asked her what she wanted, she leaned forward into the microphone and calmly answered, “Socks. It’s all I need.”
    Merry Christmas!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
