Dear Santa

Christmas is in full effect in our house. K has named our Elf on a Shelf, Sally. Sally moves to a new location each night after reporting to Santa and Kathryn makes it a point to find her each morning. As she's searching for Sally, she says "I'm lookiiiinnnggg, I'm lookiiinngggg...." until she finds her (and she's really good at locating Sally).

With Christmas right around the corner, the excitement is most definitely escalating. We performed the very important task of writing Santa's letter yesterday morning. Word for word, K's letter reads:

Dear Santa,

I've been a very good girl this year. Can you please bring me:
  • Presents
  • A baby doll
  • Play doh
  • A tea set
And that's it, okay?

Love,
Kathryn

That last line had as much attitude as you're imaging when she said it out loud. I hope Santa doesn't mind.

After the letter was signed and sealed, we went to deliver. The post office had a special mailbox for letters to Santa and she knew just what to do.

Christmas is at a whole new level this year. And you know what? They're right. Christmas is so much more fun experiencing it with your own child who is soaking it all in, one traditional at a time.
