Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
I have made a Christmas discovery. Besides being a Satanic plot to commercialize Christmas, the Santa Claus Bringing Presents Christmas Eve Myth (which is the proper academic term) may have been started to serve a useful purpose regarding little children. Have you ever tried to have a bunch of brightly wrapped boxes in a room in which a one-year old spends most of his time? We waited to set these out until we were leaving for the Miller Christmas in Iowa. We should have had Cannon in the car first. I don't know if he realizes the presents are inside, but he thinks the paper and boxes are wonderful things to play with.
If you look closely at the picture, you'll notice the bottom two feet are strangely devoid of ornaments. If it wasn't a pre-lit tree, I am sure he would have taken the lights as well.
