This weekend we will be celebrating my baby’s 4th birthday! I can’t believe she’s already 4. Danny and I have promised her a trip to Build-a-Bear, where she is looking very forward to getting a Clarice reindeer (Rudolph’s girlfriend). While we’re at the mall she will get her picture taken with Santa and drop her letter in Santa’s mailbox. I bought her the cutest red dress at the Gap yesterday for her to wear.
So this morning we wrote him an email at DearSanta.com. It’s a neat service we did last year too, and Santa will email back! Parents can view all of their children’s letters and responses, print them, and manage wish lists too. Then I copy and pasted her email to a Word template I found in Office for a letter to Santa. She’s signed her name to it and decorated the envelope with Christmas stickers. I want to save the Word document for myself, so I’ve put the email copy in the envelope that will get to Santa. Now I can’t decide if we should take it to Macy’s mailbox, where they give money charity for every letter they collect, or the mailbox that sits by Santa on his picture set…hmm. We’ll see.
I can’t wait until next year, when she’ll be able to write it herself in her own handwriting.
