how to catch santa clause


we spent the weekend before christmas with travis's brother peter and his family at their parents house in salem. peter works at a news station and sometimes will make these segments that are really good and hilarious! well this year he did one on how to catch santa clause. click here to watch it!

peter showed the segment to trey and he loved every second.

well, christmas eve came and trey decided that he wanted to catch santa as well.

so he got some cookies or "santa bait" as he called it.



a "squirrel trap"
which consisted of a storage bin, a stick, and some yarn.


he was so excited to catch santa that it took him 2 hours to fall asleep. he even turned on our fireplace so he could "burn santa's bum" when he came down the chimney.

the yarn led all the way through our family room, up the stairs, to this little mans room.


in the morning he heard santa's bells, pulled the string, and ran down stairs to find the trap pulled, cookies eaten, but no santa! santa left him a note which said "trey your uncle peter caught me with this trap, but i am much smarter now. i have a lot of presents to deliver to other girls and boys, so it's a good thing you didn't catch me."

That is so unbelievably sweet! I told hubby we had it easy this year -- two year old who fell asleep right away and woke up like normal. Next year starts the waiting and waiting till they fall asleep to make the "magic" happen and then getting up at dawn to open presents!! :)
