We allow the girls to ask Santa for three things. A friend of mine told me that they did this as a child and I thought it was a GREAT idea. We try to remind them that baby Jesus got three gifts from the threewise men and so that's all they should ask for. This year without this rule the list would have gone on and on and on!!!!!
They asked for gmnastic classes, a big girl bicycle and a swimmming baby doll. They got all three and some cute goodies in their stockings!
