It is our first year writing our letter to Jolly Ol' St. Nick or Santa Claus or Kris Kringle. We have been working on this for a while and have finally finished and have put in the mail to the North Pole. I hope the mail service to the North Pole is better than the regular USPS or else Santa might not even receive by next Christmas.
Mini #1 has been cutting things out of catalogs and magazines for a while. This weekend we began the task of writing the actual letter. He wrote everything and it took us a few tries to ensure the letters were written correctly.
Me: "Dear Santa...D-E-A-R Sssss (what says Ssssss)-A-N-T-A."
Mini #1: "This is going to take a while"
Me: "You're doing a great job. Let's say Hi." (He writes it.)
"How about writing I love you."
Mini #1:(Complete BLANK expression.) "Why? Why I love you? I don't know Santa."
Me: "Sure you do. Well, let's write something kind. "
Mini #1: "Thank you. That is kind and nice manners."
Me: "That is perfect." (We go through all the motions of writing the words thank you.)
Mini #1: (Pasting the cutouts on to his letter. One of which was a new dining room table set that he says is for me. Wish he would have included diamond earrings instead, but it is the thought that counts.)
"I don't know why you wanted me to write I Love You. I don't know if I love him. He isn't in my family."
Me: "Santa does love you. He watches over us and loves us all."
Mini #1:"I don't think so, Mom."
