Rant: Behind every successful FAT man...

Why is it that Santa gets all the credit for pulling Christmas off when I'm 99% sure that it's the woman behind the Fat Man that has done all the work to make it happen. In fact, she probably worked for weeks to get all the necessary items made, purchased, and wrapped WHILE AT THE SAME TIME dealing with the cranky, hyper, and "bored" elves that have minimal interest in promoting the Christmas spirit.

And I'm also pretty sure on Christmas Eve after he's finished arranging all the presents underneath the tree, and he's finally laying his head down to go to sleep, that Santa turns to Mrs. Claus (if he can find her buried under all of his body pillows) and says, "Oh, what did we get everyone for Christmas this year?"


P.S. When I was trying to find a Mrs. Claus image via google, I was surprised at the numerous amount of Claus-themed lingerie that's apparently available out there. Yikes. I never knew guys thought Mrs. Claus was so hot.

So did you actually brave having a tree? How has it been going? I only started wrapping last night because I'm sure one of my sweet children would have opened something (no names mentioned).

yes. this mrs. claus has worked very hard this year getting cash from the atm so the kids can open that tomorrow morning instead of lots of presents that will fill our car too full when we drive home.

Actually. "Santa" wrapped most of the gifts this year. The "cool" ones any way.
