Wish List

When we were kids, we'd go through the Sears Wish Book and circle things we wanted for Christmas; now I guess you just ask kids straight out what they want (from Santa, of course). Since the big day will be here before you know it, my mother recently asked my nephews what they wanted for Christmas.

The oldest said he wanted an iPod, a bow and arrow, the newest
Christopher Paolini book.

The middle one said he didn't know yet but he'd give it some thought.

And the youngest gave my very favorite answer; he wants cinder blocks, concrete and a trowel. He even drew my mother a picture of the trowel. I know without a shadow of a doubt, that she'll be bringing that picture to Home Depot to ask one of the employees if they carry anything like it in the store.

Since we're Italian, I suppose asking for cinder blocks, concrete and a trowel could raise a red flag, but he's six, so I think we're pretty safe.

And, he didn't mention anything about lime.

Funny thing about this post. My daughter used to circle the items she wanted, when my son got to the age of going through the book - he circled the pages. I'm sure your nephew got the trowel idea from his Dad as he must use them in his work. Kids are just so sweet!

My husband says when he and his brother were little they would circle the toys THEY DIDN'T WANT for Christmas. I, on the other hand, had a sheltered life and wasn't given the opportunity to circle my wants. My parents just gave me what they thought I wanted.

Anyhoo....I've enjoyed reading your blog and pray you and your significant other make it home safe and sound for the holidays.
