This Christmas Kaleigh asked for a golden coloured teddy bear from Santa. She has a party at preschool the week before Christmas, so it had to be there early for the visit from Santa. Kaleigh got her beautiful, soft, golden teddy from Santa and was so thrilled! She would not put the bear down.
Kaleigh came home and showed Austin her bear. Guess who fell in love with it immediately? Right, Austin. He begged Kaleigh to let him have it to sleep. He said if he had the bear, he would go to sleep right away and sleep all night. Hmmmm, I was not convinced. With a bit of protest from Kaleigh, she finally let Austin have it and he did fall asleep quickly and cuddled the bear all night. Wow! I could hardly believe a teddy bear could work such magic.
After a few days, Kaleigh became a little annoyed, to say the least. She wanted the bear back, and well, rightfully so since it was her gift that she desperately wanted from Santa. Austin eventually gave up the bear but had a last minute request from Santa, he wanted a bear exactly like the one Kaleigh had received. I promised that I would do my best to reach Santa somehow and see if he could bring one for Christmas, it was fairly close to Christmas Eve at this point. Kaleigh and Austin said that it would be no problem, "the elves could just make one in Santa's workshop"! :D Right.
Low and behold, Christmas morning, under the tree, with a red ribbon, sat a very soft, golden teddy bear exactly like the one Kaleigh had received. Austin saw it right away and read the card, he was elated!
Isn't Christmas just wonderful? :)
All the best! *HUGS*
