In my education classes, we often heard the acronym "KISS", which stands for "Keep It Simple, Stupid". I never thought it was a very nice acronym, but the concept has stuck in my brain.
We went to a family party last week, where Santa made a special appearance, placing each child on his lap to hear their Christmas wishes and giving them a little gift bag which included fruit snacks and cracker jacks. Boo, of course refused to sit on his lap or even get within five feet of him, but she sure appreciated the treats.
A neighbor of ours stopped by last night, who is also the kids' singing time instructor at church. They adore her. She said hello to both Yaks and Boo and the following exchange occurred:
Sister C: "Boo, is Santa coming to your house for Christmas?"
Sister C: "What do you think he's going to bring you?"
Boo: (excitedly) "FRUIT SNACKS....and POPCORN!!!! YAY!!!"
Sister C: "And Yaks, what do you think Santa's going to bring you?"
Yaks: (jumping up and down) "Too-Tees!" (cookies)
Sister C: "Well, I think I would enjoy Christmas a lot more if everyone just wanted a box of fruit snacks!"
Here's wishing you a simple and enjoyable Christmas.
