JTM You'd think. But no. It appears not.

That's a shame Terry but if you really have your heart set on it, I suppose you'll have to pay someone to customise it for you.
I know that you have obviously thought of that but if cost is an issue, maybe you'll just have to compromise on the model/year.

Hmm. I drive Mr. Teabag bonkers--there's so little that I personally want or need. I already have a neat car and a cool guitar. Oh, ok. For an end to the insanity in Iraq and Afghanistan;that all people be fed; homes for all pets who need them; and a chance to hug my fellow Palinites who are fellow huggers.

I used to put talcum powder on the floor and on Xmas morning we would see Santa's footprints and reindeer footprints in the doorway :)

When we were setting this up for our grandchildren we didn't leave sherry out - we used to say that Santa would've had enough of that by the time he got to us! We would leave a tray out with coffee etc for him to make himself a hot drink, then one of us would have a cup of coffee and leave the dirty cup for them to find! (and a thank you note from Santa!).

Oh and talking about letters, when we had our grandchildren living with us, and they lost a tooth, they would of course leave it under the pillow. I would then write them a letter from the tooth fairy, written with my left hand and in teeny tiny writing and then sneak it into their room with the money after they were asleep. They loved it!! I think they looked forward more to the letter from the tooth fairy than the money!!

Bethany will only be 19 months - do you think she'll be at the Santa stage yet?

I hope so!!

:)

One year Kathryn caught me writing a letter to her FROM Santa! She still goes on about that. We saw Santa in the shops today, Ava was scared witless.

Anne I reckon Bethany won't get that it's Christmas but she will definately know that something is going on and will love the tree and all the shininess!

Yes I think so too Kazzzz!!

When our kids were small we'd set the alarm for 4 or 5 a.m., then the husband would put on a santa suit, go into their bedrooms and say 'Ho ho ho' and then rush back to our room, tearing off the suit and hiding it and settling down in bed JUST as 2 sleepy kids would knock on the door! They'd come in rubbing their eyes saying 'I saw him!!' and 'He said 'HO HO HO'!!'. We would try not to laugh because their faces were a picture!!

After brekkie we would take it in turns to open gifts round the table, and one of us (taking it in turns each year) would make the excuse we wanted the loo. Really, we dressed up as Santa, sneaked out the back and then knocked on the door, with a special present that 'he' wanted to deliver by hand, or had forgotten to leave. The kids always took it all in, and were goggle-eyed that they were seeing Santa.

They said one year 'Santa wears the same slippers as you!!' (me) because I had forgotten to change them!!

In later years our son did the same trick for his nephew and niece when they were living with us, and there was a lot of 'oh Uncle Mimu [their name for him] - you missed Santa when you were in the loo!!'.

All great fun. Can't wait for Bethany to experience it!!

:)

Oh yes the littleuns and Christmas are a wonderful combination. I am loving Ava's reactions to the decorations appearing in the shops and streets. I'm going to make the most of it before she falls victim to our consumer society.
