Letter to Santa



I give to you in its entirety, Child #4's letter to Santa. It's currently on our fridge door, but her plan is to leave it next to a plate of homemade shortbread cookies this evening. It's a nice, feel-good letter.

Dear Santa Claus,

Welcome to my house! I bet you are very busy tonight. How are the elves and the reindeer doing?

I have been a good girl lately. I've gotten terrific grades and am on Honor Roll. I also help my mom cook. Today I helped her cook an omelet. I have built some good friendships. Mikaela, Kendra and Jacklyn are having a cookie and present exchange.

For Christmas I would like a Caboodles box, a penguin pillow pet, and a penguin or cupcake shirt. I would be so happy if you got me these things.

Merry Christmas!

Love, Child #4

Please write back.


Awww....such innocence. I probably won't be online much more today. Perhaps a little on Facebook, but that's it. So, from our home to yours....Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
My middle guy wrote a very sweet note to one of Santa's elves. I adore how they believe.

Very cute letter! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Eileen said...

she must get her cute from you. And yes, I did get jammies.

I helped answer Santa letters at the post office - and this letter is very well written - it's obviously done by the daughter of a 'famous' (you so are) author. If I were Santa I'd be quite impressed.

Happy Holidays!

That letter is pure sweetness in so many ways ... I especially love that she asks how the elves and reindeer are doing (concern for others ... such a wonderful thing). Hope her wishes came true!

Barrie said...

Kelly: She definitely got all three items (and more) on her list. The items came to under $50. ;)

Barrie said...

Gabe: You get to answer letters to Santa!! How fun is that?!

Barrie said...

Eileen: All her good traits comes from me. Natch. And I did NOT get jammies this year!

Barrie said...

Teresa: I hope your holidays are going well!!!

Barrie said...

Green Girl: I love this age!

Barrie said...

Sarcastic: Thank you. I can't help but agree. :)

David: She really is a very sweet kid. I did write back, btw. ;)
