Yuri has asked for a kangaroo, a rollercoaster, and a gun. Gigi has asked for an alligator, an elephant, a panda, a knife, a fly swatter, and a flashlight. When I show them stuffed animals that look like the aforementioned items, they say "noooooo! I want a REAL one!" Sigh.
Gigi also has a fascination with Superman (or, as she calls him, "Hooperman"). She wants Santa to bring Hooperman to our house to play with her. Nice, huh? Well, lucky for her, I happen to know someone who will make a GREAT Superman. He has (kind of) agreed to dress up and come by on Christmas morning to play with her. Thank you, Will Edmondson! You're going to look marvelous... cape, tights, boots... it's going to be AWESOME!!!!
