As a follow up to the "Dear Santa . . " blog I would like to announce that the boys made the news! No pictures of our sweater matching brothers, but a nice little blurb on them. This is what it said about them in the NWA Living section of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette on Sunday, December 14, 2008:
"Some come prepared. Brothers Jayden, 6, Kyler, 4, and Evan Pitts, 2, arrive in matching red argyle sweaters. Jayden and Kyler have brought lists with them, although Kyler's is so scribbled and doodled on with crayons that it's hard to make out exactly what he wants.
Jayden, however, has made his choices clear. He'd like an attack helicopter toy, a LEGO set, maybe even a microscope. Santa files them away with others just like it in a box in fromt of him.
As the older two boys tell Santa what they want, Santa pulls Evan's hand away from the boy's face so it doesn't look like he's picking his nose in the photo.
The photo done, Santa is onto another group, another request."
How cute is that?! Jayden took a copy of the paper to his teacher and she read the article to his class. He loves being "famous"! I would also like to say that Kyler did not scribble and doodle on his list - that guy doesn't know true art when he sees it -- he neatly colored the background green for effect! And of course our Evan was NOT trying to pick his nose!
