it must’ve been ol’ santa…

on the third day of christmas, i keep drawing pippa and nellie,

sketch:

with digital color:

me and my sister were just like pippa and nellie,
waiting by the window, with wonder (and a little impatience) for santa.

we’d have sleepovers in our sleeping bags on my bedroom floor,
and i swore,
every year,
i heard reindeer hooves on the roof above me.
