Merry Christmas



My daughter spent the whole day today telling us about her plan to stay up all night and catch Santa Claus...if he even exists.

"I know it's you," she said to me half a dozen times.

"You're welcome to wait for him," I told her, "But you're going to have to wait for him in your bedroom with the lights off."

When my husband went in to check on her at 8:45pm, she was out like a light.

He did find this letter however, sitting on a chair in the middle of her room:



Seriously, is there anything more cute (other than the exact same letter written by your nine year-old?)?

We didn't see Santa make his appearance, but we did peek in our daughter's room after the delivery.



I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas!!!

So how did she react to the letter back?

I saw Santa in Paris at the Coca-Cola Christmas train, and he told me he really liked Phoenix because it was so warm here. Only Santa could know that because French people do not travel.
