Phone call to a few of the nieces...
Me: Ella, it's A. B & I are getting ready for Christmas and we've forgotten-- what does Santa eat? What do we leave the reindeer?
Ella (3): You need to leave cookies and M&Ms and carrots for the reindeer.
Me: What does Santa drink?
Ella: Oh... I don't know!
Me: Milk? Juice? Mountain Dew?
Ella: Santa drinks Milk, but the reindeer drink Mountain Dew. And don't forget that you have to tell all your friends Merry Christmas.
Me: I won't. Merry Christmas Ella.
Ella: Merry Christmas A!
