I still believe in Santa but when I was about 4 0r 5 the kids at school told me that he was not real. I cried for a good day, I was so upset that kids could lie like that

I did the same thing that my mom did for me with craig. I think I probably figured it out around 10 or so, but mom told me that all those other kids were idiots (she is so blunt sometimes) and that as long as I believed there was a santa I would get santa presents, I was no fool, I believed until she had me start wrapping all of my little sisters presents...LOL!

I don't remember when I figured it out or that I really have LOL! Part of the fun and the magic is believing

Cherise stopped believing when she was 9 and Justin goes back and forth. We do what Nea mentioned... we say that the kids who tell him he isn't really don't know what they are talking about.

As for my favorite Christmas memory. I can't really think of one but I just remember Christmas time being filled with fun and family and lots of gifts!!! Also we were the ones who decorated the tree =)

Unfortunatly I was 5 when I found out, but it was because my stepfather at the time misspelled my name on a wooden jewlery box he had made, and Mom couldn't tell me why Santa miss spelled it. My eldest DD who is 12 knows, but she still gets stuff from Santa, she just gets the fun of stuffing all but her stocking, and helps distract her sister when we are trying to do Santa stuff, which she loves doing. My 10 year old however still some what belives and we hope it stays like that for a few years longer.

just got started on some things for the gals at work.

Might just get them done before Christmas

Hi ya all!!
Wow, Who says there's no Santa????? Be still my beating heart!
My mom would always make a big fuss with Santa and I am the baby of the family so I "believed" up until I was 12, when my parents go a divorce and I told my mom not to buy me any "Santa" gifts that year because money was tight. She was very worried about what she was going to put under the tree that year.

I can't even think about Christmas projects yet. lol I have tons of stuff that I still need to finish. lol

Let's see, had Domino Day at my house yesterday. I'm making sets of magnets for gifts, not done yet, but got a good jump on them.

I'm making mini-books for my Mom, sisters and an aunt. That is going to take me awhile to do. I'm taking the German Bride's Tree tradition (12 ornaments that should go on a newly married couple's tree to ensure good fortune in the year ahead) and making a book of wishes for the new year for each of them based on that list.

lol, I though about it.

I actually didn't do anything, it's one of those things that just comes up the DR said. Something called plantar fasciitis. It's basically where the ligament on the bottom of your foot doesn't stretch correctly so when you walk and force it to stretch it tears instead of stretching. So now I get the boot for a few weeks. But on the upside it's the perfect excuse to wear my Birkenstocks. The DR said I had to wear arch supports.

I=image, something that reminds you of your pal, based on their preferences.

My take on it: I read the survey and then went in and looked around her gallery to get some ideas. I went with something non-scrappy for "I".
