What Did Santa Bring?

Santa came to town...

Santa Claus or St. Nicholas as the kids know them in our part of the world came last December 6 and what did he bring?

Oh, a lot of surprises. When Papa opened the door early in the morning, he already saw two packages of chocolates leaning on our door. Those were from our tenants, but of course, we told the kids that Santa came early, too.

The kids were also up early because they would be meeting him in kindergarten, too. And they did, they got their individual socks filled with goodies. And from the neighbor, though they dont know it, they got surprise gifts waiting on the door.

Oma and opa arrived early. The girls forgot their excitement as they found somebody else to play with. Thus when Santa finally came with a loud ho-ho-ho into the living room door and his big sack filled to the brim -- the kids were really surprised! I really thought the kids would not want to be left alone to face him, but they did. They even sang a song for him.

Our Santa arrived with some notes for the kids. He praised them for the good and he also told them about the not so nice things that he heard. The kids simply said yes or no, nodded or shrugged their shoulders. What was the issue for IC? That she dont want to brush her teeth and she dont want to be combed. And for MC? That she always fights about tv watching.

After the kids' promised to try to work on their 'issues'; the gift giving time arrived. And what gleeful noises you would hear from the kids. We all cant help but be excited for them, too. They got what they wished for and loads of sweets...
