This is my transcription of Santa Visits the Bartells as told by Wil to me on our drive home from work…
And Santa comes down the Chimney and William asks, “who’s that there?” and Santa says, “it’s just me.”
“Oh Santa! Its just you. You bring presents?”
“Yes!” Santa says. And Santa gives William a present and he rips it open and its a boat. Santa gives a present to William and says, “here this is for Midnight.”
But Midnight can’t talk, she says “meow”. So William takes Midnight’s present and rips it open and its cat food. And he gives the food to Midnight and she says, “meow”, thank you, because she can’t talk because she’s a cat.
Then William rings the bells to wake mama and dada. And mama and dada say, “what’s that noise?!?!? Oh, it’s just William.” And they come to the livingroom and they see Santa.
William takes dada’s present and he rips it open and its a plane. “Here you go dada,” says William. And then he takes mama’s present and he rips it open and its a truck, “here you go mama.”
Then Santa goes up the Chimney and he asks William, “you want to come to the North Pole with me?”
“Yes, thank you!” Says William and he goes up the Chimney with Santa and he goes to the North Pole.
I’m guessing there’s a sequel since I was never told the second half of the story about what happens when William goes to the North Pole and his return.
Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a fabulous year!
