I thought Santa came up with a genius idea this year.  He wrote a letter to the kids and beautifully explained the meaning of Christmas.  He reminded the kids that Christmas is not about the gifts we give and receive but more about celebrating life and all the people we get to live it with.  He created a new game and hid lots of little people around the house for the kids to find.  He told them to keep them and play with them throughout the year to remember the spirit of Christmas.  We are to leave the people out next year for Santa to hide again.

I found Elise playing with them the other day...

My heart warmed as I watch her line them up.  She said they were going to the movies.

You can see this group is very diverse.
 But wait...what is that girl in the wheelchair doing?
 I think she had some sort of accident.  Did she knock a few people down?
Ummm...I am starting to think that was no accident.

I think this girl may be evil.  What is she doing?

Now she is picking people up and throwing them off the edge of the table to their certain death and my daughter is smiling.

Not exactly what Santa had in mind I think.  There was total carnage and this girl showed no remorse.  The warmness in my heart turned to a chill up my spine.

There was no discrimination at all.  If you were blind, on crutches, a baby, a didn't matter she was taking you down.  Elise thought this was the funniest game ever.  I think she may have missed some of the key details in Santa's message.  Well...he tried.
