Dear Santa

This is one of several "drafts" of El's Christmas letter to Santa.  Her top two wish list items keep changing (Santa has learned to hold off on toy making for this child!).  Her top two items change, but wish #3 stays the same.  For "everyone in the hole univers to have a wonderfull christmas and a happy new year."

That is my wish this year too sweet Ellie.

And p.s.  Santa loves you too.

Yep. That one made me cry. (Thanks Ellie :) I too hope for wish #3. And because you've been good, I'm pretty sure you'll receive wishes 1 & 2 as well. I just love the innocence of children. Merry Christmas.

So sweet. I love reading their writing at this age, so fun. I would trade our girls list in a heartbeat though. Hailey is asking for a pet snake and emery wants an ironman. Somewhere I have failed with my girls!!

Merry Christmas too.

She is a darling girl with a huge heart!

You must be so proud of her, Erin :)

Amanda said...

The "p.s. I love you" definitely brought tears to my eyes. What a sweetie. You're raising some great kids, Erin.

Erin said...

Thank you everyone. What sweet comments! Yes. I am pretty proud of that one. :)

Lindsey - your kids' wish list items made me laugh! Addison told me yesterday that all she wants is a nutcracker. WHAT!? I asked her why and she said because she wants to crack nuts with him. But not eat the nuts because she has a nut allergy. HA... :)

that is so sweet.

Lucy said...

Erin - this is such a sweet letter. I can't speak for everyone, but I know you can tell Ellie that our little family is having a wonderful Christmas : ) Everything is just a little bit sweeter these days, isn't it?

Merry Christmas!

Becky said...

Oh my such sweetness and love. She is such a wonderful example. Merry Christmas.

Aww I don't think a letter to Santa has ever brought tears to my eyes before. What a sweet sweet little darling you have Erin. I hope she gets everything on her list!

Cortney said...

Erin- I love that post!!! I enjoy reading your blog so much. Especially living vicariously through your house planning experience! LOL

Sarah said...

oh she is SO SO sweet. i think santa should bring her everything she wants and then some more for being that sweet.

Stephanie said...

For this post I will brave captcha!

What a little sweetie! I truly wish that Santa could fulfill that wish :)

Also, I think Santa needs to put off making toys for our littles too. Why can't they stick to the original list?!?!
