"From Da Cakulater"

We recently attended a St. Nicholas party (thank you, Mr. Elf) where the real-for-true St. Nicholas came and gave all the children bags full of goodies and advent calendars with little chocolates behind each door. June is very pleased with this chocolate-yielding calendar and now walks around the house insistently (though slightly erroneously) repeating:
"I wan' chockit from da cakulater."*

  1. I can see that my advent "cakulator" has taken second place to the chocolate producing one. Next year I will know not to try to be a responsible grandmother!!

  3. I wanted to take one or two choclates from each calendar, and tape in a candy corn, a la Bad Santa.

    My wife said no.
