Been working on a new PB about Santa Claus. I saw him driving a small red truck with a sleigh in the back. One of the writer’s in my critique group said it sounded like a PB. So I’m feeling blessed to get a chance to try it.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Had a tough exam today but really liked the NP I saw. She was kind and very gentle.

Santa visited Brooks at Nana’s house. He is so crazy about all the things Santa brought him. It was a good Christmas. We took pictures again this year at Lisa’s. They all came out really good.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Brooks enjoying his Santa haul today. He is going back to Charlottesville in the morning. We will miss him but hopefully he will move to Hickory sometime soon.

Getting¬† ready to get Brooks Christmas gifts and keep him busy at Nana’s house. He is such a good boy. He is so polite and loves his family.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Brooks is crazy about soccer. He’s going to a soccer camp on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of December. His dad paid for it. Shocker!!! I hope Brooks has a good time no matter what.
