Dear Santa...

The local newspaper printed some letters written by
school kids. I will post a few here. Spelling and
punctuation are as they wrote them...

"Merry Christmas! How is Mrs. Clause and the
reindeer?I'm looking forward to Christmas this year.
I'm hoping for some reading material.May I please
have a chest full of books?Some of my favorite series
are:Magic Tree House,Little House on the Prarie,
American Girl, and Princess Diarys.I hope the books
aren't too heavy. Merry Christmas!
Erica N."

"For Christmas I want only two things
a chiwawa and a chocolate lab. That is all
I want.♥you rock. To me it is really cool that you can
go all around the world in one night.Thank you
for all the presents you gave me. I love you. P.S. This
year the cookies are chocolate chip.♥
Madison M."

"I am very happy to say that I
have been a very good little boy this
year. Not perfect. I had a couple fights
with my brother but we made up right
away. you will be pleased to know that
I've kept my room clean and clothes put away
neatly-which is very hard to do while sharing
a room with a twin brother whatever toys you
send me this year will be just wonderful
I can't wait to put out the milk and cookies for
Dean M."

I may copy a few more during the week.

I miss that sweet innocence. *S* When you were certain that your letter reached Him, and that he really was keeping a benevolent eye on you.

RE: that last letter? Dean is a salesman in training for SURE! They were all really cute, but that one just tickled me to pieces!

Jean said...

Irrel, I wish I could remember that time. I don't think I ever believed he was real.

Tammi, he really does sound like a professional, doesn't he? heh.

The trust and faith of little children is their most endearing qualities. No guile from them until they learn it by watching adults. Maybe we would do well to spend more time watching and emulating them.
