Art work by Julia

 The first drawing is of a person with a thought bubble that has a music note in it.  
The caption says "you can dream whatever you want to but not nothing"

 Pretty insightful for a Kindergartner!  I am SURE this was inspired by her mother.

On the other hand, I have no idea what the watermelon behind a one-wheeled tow truck came from.

That one is just weird.

The Elves

Last night, on the way to our second christmas program of the evening, Julia said "Santa is fake".  She said this in a very matter-of-fact and no-nonsense manner.

I said, "Yes, Santa is fake." 

Julia said "Some kids think he is real. "

"Yes, " I replied, "Some kids think he is real."

"But if he is fake, why does he come down the chimney?"

"Well, he doesn't really do that.  That part is fake too."  I said.


She thought about this for a minute.

I asked her "So, who do you think buys you those presents that you thought were from Santa?"

She thought for another minute and then replied with a confidant nod of her head,  "It's the Elves."

Hmmm... Maybe she is not as clear on the whole story as I thought.
