Samuel's letter from Santa

Dear Santa Claus,

My name is Samuel. I am a boy and this is going to be my very first Christmas!! I live in the great city of XXXX. Of course, that's in XXXX, United States, but I'll bet you knew that!! This year I've been so good that I should be the angel on top of the tree!
Santa Claus, some things I might like for Christmas this year are: wagon; baby drum set; and, ball.

Santa Claus, I almost forgot to say... This is my first Christmas and I would like you to come to my house. I have been a very good baby although I have been sick. I have had 2 surgeries already. I hope you have a merry Christmas.
Love, Samuel

Merrrryyyy Christmas Samuel!!
Thank you for sending me your email all the way from XXXX! The Net sure is wonderful because now I can get emails from Bellingham and around the world in the blink of an eye. Even Rudolph gets emails... from pets! Why, here's Rudolph right now! HO!! Ho!! ho!! He just asked me to say 'Hi!' to you!

Did you know that the Northern Lights were shining particularly brightly when you were born Samuel? (I just happened to notice how brilliant they were that day). But I'll bet that your very first Christmas is going to be even brighter for everyone in your family now that there's a special little boy here to enjoy it with them! I also hear you've been a REALLY REALLY good baby boy. I know Mrs. Claus was really excited when she added your name to the Nice List for the very first time.

Let's see what you put in your letter for Christmas wishes: 1. wagon; 2. baby drum set and; 3. ball. HO!! Ho!! ho!! Those ARE good presents Samuel! We've been so very busy this year that I hope you won't be too upset with me if you don't get everything you want for Christmas.
Well, I better go feed the reindeer and polish Rudolph's nose with nose wax. Have to make sure everything's ready for the big day! Take care Samuel -- I'm really looking forward to seeing you in person for the first time this Christmas Eve. That's only 6 sleeps away (not including naps of course)!!
Wishing You A Very Merry First Christmas!

P.S. Why thank you for the wonderful hugs & kisses Samuel! Here are some extra special hugs and kisses just for you from everyone at the North Pole!

Okay that was adorable! What a great idea for a baby book page. Too Cute! I wish I had kept a record of what my kids wished for or were "into" each year. It would've helped me to remember them as babies and young children better. We forget too fast!
Take Care, Jennifer
