Since you wrote your very first letters, your letter writing has become one of your favorite things. You'll sit for quite a while, trace over the each yellow letter, & include pictures. You couldn't have been more excited to write a letter to Santa. You knew you wanted to ask for an American Girl Doll, but you & Daddy & I talked about other topics to include. Daddy & I thought that your behavior should be mentioned. You weren't very concerned about trivial things like behavior, but once we mentioned Rudolph, you wanted to make sure he was included in your letter as well. So, I asked you what you wanted to say, & wrote the words in yellow.
I know that our mailbox isn't big or red, but it was still kind of a magical setting to drop off your very first letter to Santa. Fluffy whiteness covered everything, the Christmas lights had just turned on, our candles were twinkling, & you could just see our Christmas tree through the window. It was truly a winter wonderland.
I love you so,
