Naughty or Nice?

When the kids visited Santa this year, their requests were:

Elizabeth: Dinosaur fish
Amanda: Fish tank
Jack: Golf balls

And it looks like this year they all made it on the nice list.

Behold, the amazing (and kind of creepy) dinosaur fish. They haven't hatched in this picture, all of the brown specks floating on the top are hundreds of fish eggs. Out of the hundreds of eggs, only 2-3 will actually survive to become grown ups. And those 2-3 lucky fish get to spend their 20-90 day life span right here in this tank! Super cool, right?

Now, this next gift proves that Santa is very good at his job. He realized that Amanda's request of "fish tank" wasn't so much an actual request. The sweet little girl was frozen with Santaphobia and muttered out the first thing that popped into her head. Since Elizabeth went first, Amanda quickly followed with "fish tank" and that was that. Santa can't NOT listen to the one and only one request. So he brought her something special, just for her - a jellyfish tank!

Jack asked for golf balls. But Spongebob golf balls? Santa is amazing!

And what did Sully ask for? I don't know for sure, but I'd say he is pretty pleased. Introducing Cassie, our favorite Christmas gift of all. She is 100% flopsy puppy and she came with a bonus - our mole problem is officially solved!
