My Kids’ Crazy Christmas Lists

I remember making a Christmas “wish list” every year when I was a kid. I also remember how many times I’d add things to my list that I knew Santa wouldn’t bring … but just in case I added them anyway.  My two youngest sons (Connor & Cooper) still make wish-lists, while our oldest (Taylor & Parker) just give us a few ideas to choose from. Like always, this year I did find humor in some of my kids’ Christmas wish-list requests. For example….

  • This year my 9 year-old son, Cooper, had a list that contained the usual things like games, a bike and legos. I did laugh that at the bottom of his list he’d included “a BIG bag of Twix candy” with the word “Pleeeeeeeease!” following the request.
  • Connor’s list contained a video game, but also included a few clothes, which is a sign that he’s growing up. The part of his wish-list that I found to be interesting was when he wrote:  “A Gerbil” and also included a big “Pleeeeeeeease!” after it. I just laughed at that request, knowing that hell would freeze over before Lea would ever willingly  invite any living rodent of any form into her home.
  • And then last night I walked through the kitchen and died laughing when I saw a new last-minute Christmas wish-list scribbled on a napkin and placed on the refrigerator next to the others.  It was from Parker, my 19 year-old college son who’s home on break. It simply said…

I guess he wasn’t too crazy about coming home for Christmas and finding 2% and skim milk to go along with his cereal.

Have a very Merry Christmas and many blessings from the Morgan family to your family.

    Funny how things change as we get older! :)

  2. James says:

    I completely agree with Parker. If God wanted me to drink reduced fat milk, he would have made 2% cows.

  3. Jo Baird says:

    I agree with Lea about gerbils. I agree with Parker about the milk.
    I should have bought him a gallon of Brahms milk. It is so good. What did you put on your list and what does Lea want?

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Lea and I decided we weren’t going to get each other anything this year. But, I bet they’ll be a couple of little things under the tree for her. She’s already got me a Bread for a Hungry World, chicken shirt.

  4. Sarah S. says:

    TOTALLY laughed out loud at this. My husband would have given this a hearty amen, but after 18 years of marriage (and turning 40), he even asked me to buy 1%… then asked me to go back to 2%. You boys love the fat in your milk… :-)

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Sarah … if I knew I was going to die next week, or if the Lord was coming back … I’d drink nothing but whole milk and eat Krispy Kreme donuts for a week.

  5. Angie Cox says:

    Come hang with us, Parker. I’ll take you out to get the REAL stuff. 😉

  6. Greg England says:

    Funny! But affordable.

    don’t remember making a list, but we sure did wear the sears christmas catalog out, looking at the toys :)

  8. Jessica says:

    My youngest son asked me, after being at college for several weeks before coming home, “Mom, why don’t you keep milk for me? You know I’ll be home sometime”. We live a whole 10 blocks from the store, but I guess he thought it would just still be waiting in the fridge for him.

  9. Jessica says:

    So did Parker find whole milk under the tree?

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
