Chris had finals for a whole week which left me and the kids at home at night alone quite a bit. I tried to come up with as many activities as I could to keep all three of us sane. One of these activities was to write letters to Santa. I laugh to myself as I think of writing these letters when I was younger. We would be so specific as to what item we wanted, what page it was on and in what catalog, just in case Santa wasn't exactly sure! Since the kids can't quite 'write' a letter I told them to draw what they wanted. Ethan's letter involved two huge circles which were tires for the big truck he wanted and some other crazy lines and scribbles that was a trailer. Katelee's was a bunch of tight little scribbles which were baby dolls! When we were done I put the letters in an envelope and took it to work the next day to mail off to Santa! I love how they are both so intent on their letters! Oh how I love these kids and their Christmas excitement!
