We've determined that scientifically, Santa's existence is a tad questionable, but as always the children the children find ways to keep hope alive. Today we were reminded by Guppylumpagus that Santa can bring us more than just Christmas cheer; he can also bring us pepper spray:
My sister e-mailed me a copy of my 10-year old nephew's letter to Santa...this is his closing line:
"And something really important…don't give up on Christmas Day."
He also advised Santa to not try to wreck his sleigh, and requested ten cans of pepper spray. And optimistically said that "Sometimes I am good for Mrs. Shepard. Football players are interesting."
The kid really covered a lot of ground in one letter.
