Fairy Wings from Santa

Cordelia and Jakob have a request that they want to ask of Santa for this Christmas.
They want fairy wings for the family.
Coco says it's so Raquel won't have to walk and hurt her feet.  She can just flutter inches off the ground and be free and quick to roam unhindered.

I had to ask her if Santa's magic and the elves ingenuity come through, will we then be able to all eat rainbows and poop butterflies?

Of course this comment then brought about some very graphic discussion on the actual mechanical problems of attaching wings, eating rainbows and my favorite part pooping butterflies.  It was pretty much agreed that they'd come out in their cocoons.  I think I've tainted Cordelia's ever lasting images of how cocoons come to be as they fall from the sky and get caught on branches.

Of course when the time is right or her schooling catches up to her fathers fables the truth shall be known.

    My name is Jenna, you are a brave, courageous fighter and an inspiration.

    I wrote this poem
    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesen't matter what other's say
    we are special anyway.
