Christmas Lists

Teddy and Patrick presented me with their Christmas lists lately and they really amused me. Here's Teddy's:
I like how he used a different writing style for each item! Very creative! Here's page two:
And he says "thank you"!! That' s always nice.
Patrick's list was a little longer--four pages to be exact and over 100 items (he added more later)!
I don't know if you can tell in this pic, but there are a series of dots after each item indicating how badly he wants it. He has some bizarre thing on there like "photograph of a lemon with a white background" (??) and "picture of a polar bear on a floating piece of ice."
Santa has his work cut out for him this year!

I'm diggin' the 'more on back' with the arrow on the first letter to Santa. :D

And, how creative to add the dots as a 'want it this much' meter!

Do you save the letters to Santa, Jen?

btw- I have an award for you girlie. =)

My kids always did elaborate lists...in fact I still get them even now...we just email them back and forth!

How funny!

I make out the girls' lists for them... maybe next year I'll have them do it themselves and see what things they come up with!

Big family. You must be always busy ...

CaraBee said...

As creative as you are, I'm not surprised that your children are as well. I have to admit, the picture of a lemon has me stumped, though.

Really digging it................

Oh geez that's hilarious...weird candies but what made me laugh was "comfortable pillows and blankets" as if he's sleeping on straw right? He's a character.

Teddy's list looks exactly like mine, the boy has good tastes.

Kristin said...

My favorite is rocks for the rock collection.

Yowzers! Must be nice to be a kid and know exactly what you want. :)

When I was a kid I'd always write one thing: "All I want is a happy family" (as a dig at my sisters), but by Christmas time my lists always managed to be longer than theirs.

Z's Mom said...

Oh my gosh!!! Those are great!!!

4 pages!!!! WOW!!!!

Hilarious!!!!

Jen said...

Wow, those are some lists. I hate to think of the list when Hayden can write. It is going to be 10 pages at least.

Jen B. said...

I love the "any other cool thing" on the list, too! The lists are hysterical!

Miss Blondie said...

I love how Teddy wrote "any other cool toys you find" HAHA!! Too cute!!

I am totally fascinated by Patrick's list. What a neat kid!
