A Letter From Santa...




Well, the big guy came through. After writing and mailing a letter to Santa last Thursday, Noah received a letter in the mail today from Santa Claus. At first he thought it was a card from a friend at school, but when I told him it was from the North Pole he went nuts!!! He started yelling and jumping up and down very excitedly. Noah opened the letter and I read it to him...
Dear Noah,
I received your Christmas list in the mail yesterday. I checked my naughty and nice list, you are on the nice. I see that you decorated my letter with stickers and you wrote your own name. I am pleased with you. If you continue to mind your Mommy and Daddy, I will be at your house at midnight with your presents.
Merry Christmas,
Santa
The envelope even had a candy attached to the back of it. "Imagine that, a candy all the way from the North Pole" he said. Noah reminds me that we only have to sleep 8 more time until Christmas.

Had a busy day, I had my Christmas party for my bible study group today. We did a white elephant gift exchange. Noah had his Christmas party at school and had lots of yummy treats and a goody bag to bring home. He will miss his friends over the next two weeks. Camden has been sick the last two days with a fever of 101 - 102.5 with tylenol. It appears the fever has broke and it is starting to come down tonight. Please keep him in your prayers. Finally, we had my family over (grandparents, great-grandparents, Aunt Wendy) over for dinner. Off to bed. Good night!

A neat story well told. To have been at the Christmas Eve party was fascinating,'ceptin' one guy was thinkin' or sleepin'. But the beat went on and everyone had fun. Noah and Camden did a great job at opening the presents.
