In the days leading up to Christmas Seth wrote a note to Santa Claus that he left under the tree. He asked Santa to prove that he was real by taking a photo on our camera of Rudolph and Clarice. (Clarice is Rudolph's girlfriend if you don't know your North Pole trivia.) Scott took a photo of the outside of our home and used photo shop to make Rudolph and Clarice happen.
The Clarice in the photo is from Build A Bear and lives in Seth's room. On Christmas morning Seth found both the photo on the camera and the printed photo under the tree. Seth had apparently intended to get a photo of the real Clarice, but realized that his stuffed animal Clarice had been used because "Duh...Clarice doesn't deliver Christmas presents." he was satisfied.
I was more than happy with the effort Scott put forth to give Seth a very happy memory. Dads are so cool.
Today finds me wasting time cleaning and picking up. The kids will just get it all out again, but still, I try. Oh how I try.
