The Third Time’s a Charm!
The third time’s a charm. Practice makes perfect. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. These are all sayings that could possibly describe our recent attempts to communicate with dear old Santa Claus. Finally today, Desheng Darling sat on Santa’s lap and told him what she wanted for Christmas. Understand, this was our third attempt to visit with Santa. As stated in earlier blog posts, the other two attempts were dismal failures due to bad breath and errors on Santa’s part to maintain proper noise control.
On the other hand, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease" and "Speak now or forever hold your peace" might be more applicable. For in reality, I think DD may be convinced that if she doesn’t actually TELL Santa, she may not get what she wants for Christmas. I mean, after all, how is he to know?
Oh well, for whatever reason, she sat on his lap for the picture. We in return, purchased the photo for a totally unreasonable price.
