It seems wrong to punish Mikey like that when Raph is the one to start the fight. Who wouldn't lose if their brother was being a bully by pinning him down on a regular basis.

Raph thinks that apples are way better than oranges.

Aw, I felt so bad for Mikey. BY the way, I just realized you published this for the 2k3 version. My mind was completely in 2012!

You got me right in the feels! The last part when Donny was crying made me cry! So beautiful! *sob*

So far, wonderful! I love how you made my favorite turtle (Donnie) look out for my second favorite (Mikey). I love these type of fanfics. They make me feel all warm and cozy on the inside. The only that confuses me is who is the turtle that has to go to the bathroom and sees presents?

Oh this was absolutely gorgeous. I can't even begin to tell you how this made my night 10x better. Wow.
Instant fave, instant follow :)

While the last few chapters could have been stronger (they lacked the narrative punch that the turtle tots chapters had), this overall is an excellent Ninja Turtles fanfic (I want to say the best Christmas Ninja Turtles fanfic but I haven't read enough of them to be credible with that statement yet). A grade material.
I loved Raphael's emotional conflict in Chapters 4 and 5, and Donatello being Donatello... trying to address everyone's needs even though they conflict with each other. And Michelangelo's day where everything seemed to fall apart on him... even as an adult I had a few days like that so I can relate.
Your constant author notes re: calling Christmas Christmas was a bit much as a fellow reviewer mentioned.
Having read both "Santatello" and "A Wee Tale" I will make a point of checking out all your Ninja Turtles fanfics because at your best you do what few fanfic authors do, tell stories that can only exist in the reality of a given show/book/etc. Kids have been scared of Santa Claus before... but to be raised under circumstances where they are scared of him because he is human... I can't think of any other show/book/etc. reality where that could be possible.

I was just surfin around devantart (I think that's how it's spelt) and I came across this link and I was like, ah, why not? BEST CHOICE EVER! this is amazing fanfiction I love this story SO much! U R AWESOME! I just love everything about this the Christmas while they were kids, taking in every circumstance, getting in the mind of an average 6 year old but still taking in account for the character's special personalities MAN YOU DID AN AVESOME JOB AT THIS!

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
I teared up quite a few times from the heart breaking sadness and the utter sweetness. The last chapter really got to me.

Love the turtle tots. Didn't read eleven or twelve because I wanted to stay in the turtle tot mood. But from how you've written this story, I know the last two must be great reads.

| Sarge Abernathy chapter 12 . 12/30/2011
I have been reading fanfics for quite awhile. This is the first that made me cry, and several times as well. It goes straight to the top of my favorites list!
| LenniluvsBrian chapter 12 . 11/4/2011
Absolutely LOVED IT! I kinda figured out what Mikey was up too - lol. But I absolutely love how close you make him & Donnie. I always stick him with Raph - haha. Crazy combo, but still good. But him & Donnie - I love the way you write it. I love how you portray them all.

Very cute and awesome!
