Who you gonna call?

My oldest got both a Webkinz charm necklace and bracelet along with one charm for Christmas in her stocking. They come with codes that you enter online to a Webkinz account.
Lilly wanted to enter her new pieces onto her account. We sat down at the computer to do everything, but when I saw she had both a necklace and a bracelet, I got a little confused with their being only one charm. My husband got these from Ebay, and I really had no idea what he wanted with them, if one was for now, and one for later, etc.

Without even thinking, I looked at Lilly and said, "Huh. Wonder why you got the necklace and the bracelet. I wonder what he was thinking. "

"I don't know, Mom."

"Well, I guess I will just have to call him and ask if there was something special he wanted, or if you are supposed to only use one of them for now." I picked up the phone and started dialing.

Lilly's eyes were huge. Her jaw dropped. "Are you really calling Santa right now??" She ask with astonishment.

I didn't miss a beat. "I might just be." And then I smiled at her. When Chad answered the phone, I ask him only what I needed to. Then said "Thank you, Santa" and hung up. Lilly was flabbergasted.

It was fantastic. Chad has threatened to call Santa many, many times over the years, but I guess it was mom who actually picked up the phone and did it the first time. Ahh....she knows her momma means business all the time.
