ELLIE: Mr. Santa Waffles! Did you see??? We got TOYS in our stockings!!! That means I must have been on Santa's nice list! How about you?
WAFFLES: Santa and I are tight. I'm always on his nice list.
ELLIE: I got a dangly Christmas tree with a feather!

WAFFLES: Whaddya mean is it me? Of course, it's me.
ELLIE: So, you mean......are you........are you really.....SANTA???!
WAFFLES: Do I look like Santa?
ELLIE: I've heard stories about you, I mean Santa. About a big, jolly, orange cat in a tight-fitting red coat.
WAFFLES: TIGHT FITTING???
ELLIE: And Santa brings toys and treats and stuff to all the good girl cats and boy cats.
WAFFLES: Yup, and I've got a list and stuff. And I check it. Lots and lots of times.
WAFFLES: You know, the naughty & nice list.
ELLIE: Am I on the list?
WAFFLES: Your name is Ellie, right?
WAFFLES: You're on the list alright.
ELLIE: Which one, Mr. Santa Waffles?
WAFFLES: I guess you'll just have to check your stocking on Christmas morning to find out!
About Today's Photos
It's Christmastime in the mountains! This weekend we strung the twinkle lights, hung the stockings, and dusted off our holiday attire. Ellie is pretty perceptive given this is her first Christmas. Waffles' Santa coat DOES look a couple of sizes smaller than we remember. LOL!
Today's holiday photoshoot had Glogirly wrangling Ellie and Waffles with treats and wand toys while Gloman snapped away with his camera. Waffles
The REAL Santa will be sliding down our chimney this Christmas Eve and we're pretty sure he'll have some toys in his bag for Ellie and Waffles. Surely they've landed at the top of his nice list.

ELLIE: So Mr. Waffles?
ELLIE: So what's all
WAFFLES: Ellie, EVERY food is your very favorite food.
ELLIE: Yeah, but what does the thanks and giving thing mean?
WAFFLES: It's Thanksgiving, Ellie. It's a holiday that we all celebrate with turkey and pumpkin pie and stuff. It's a day that we think about what we're thankful for too.
ELLIE: I'm thankful for turkey. I LOVE turkey.
WAFFLES: You're right about that, Ellie. Someone once explained to me how Thanksgiving is so much more than turkey and yummy food smells though.
ELLIE: What do you mean, Mr. Waffles?
WAFFLES: Well, she told me that it's hard to put into words, but it's about being thankful for the little things. Just last year, this is how she explained it to me:
"Like the sunshine in the morning that warms us and the blue jays that fly by our window.""Like how every time I roll over on the rug, Glogirly will pet me in just the right place."
"Like how Glogirly talks to us in her sing-song voice. And how she sometimes even sings to us."
