Years ago, when our boys were little, like most families we left cookies and milk out for Santa to snack on. After all, it’s a very long trip around the world and most fast food places close early on Christmas Eve! Our boys, being the voracious cookie eaters that they were, would leave a pile, a BIG pile, of cookies out. Poor Al would have to take a bite out of every cookie on the plate, plus drink the milk. At night. Before bed. And every Christmas Eve I would wonder if Santa Al would be able to GET to sleep!! But he did…usually shortly before the boys woke in very early anticipation of Christmas morning!
HO HO HO !! Santa Al gets to sleep in now! —Jan
