With Pre-Christmas behind us and real Christmas fast approaching, it has been shopping time in the Kingdom of Grubb. The Princess, being three and all, finally understands that Christmas is a wonderful time of year in which we celebrate the birth of the Baby Jesus through his second in command, Santa Claus. She loves the pageantry of Christmas with the lights and the cookies and the Jingle Belling and whatnot. From helping decorate our tree to assembling our Elf village, every day belongs to some part of Christmas.
Of course the big pay off to Christmas for this young lass is the presents. Like when the light went off that she can shake down our neighbors for candy at Halloween, the Princess figured out that if she's good, we are morally obligated to give her stuff. In preparation, she's written a long Christmas list including every item in the Disney Store. The Princess needs more of her kind, especially if they are little, plastic and painful to step on when barefoot. She especially needs a Rainbow Dash that she can color herself.
