With Christmas this weekend, we are each writing to Mr. Claus with our wish list. Today, we share Qannik’s Santa Claus letter.
Dear Santa Claus,
Let me start out by making sure you ignore Kiska’s request to bring me a brain. She means well, but I have one. And it is almost like new! I rarely use it, so it is in great condition. So, thank you, but I really don’t need a brain. Or another one. Whatever.
Another thing I don’t need is green beans. For some odd reason, Hu-Dad keeps giving me and giving me green beans when I would rather have more food. He says it will be so that I am smaller, but, come on, who doesn’t want a big fluffy Qannik to hug. Especially when it’s been raining and I have been sitting in the rain.
What would be cool would be some white dirt. I love playing around in the mud and dirt, but Hu-Dad can always tell. Maybe if the dirt was white it would hide in my coat and Hu-Dad would never know.
I could also use a pair of ear plugs. I am pretty good about not hearing Hu-Dad when he calls me to come in, but it is really hard not to hear Kiska yelling at me. She loves telling me what to do and I love ignoring her and ear plugs would help!
Hu-Dad said he was going to leave you cookies and milk, but he probably will just leave you an empty glass and plate full of crumbs. I mean, it’s not like I would eat cookies and milk if they were left out on the counter or anything.
Anyway, have a safe trip.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
