Christmas Mantel and Letter to Santa

December 23, 2013

Dear Santa,

We are ready..... you can come down the chimney now. We have waited for this night all year. And don't worry, although we are beyond excited, we will do our best to be asleep at 11:59 pm and be up at 6:00 am. Plenty of time for you to do your thing......and have a snack.

The tree is up and our stockings are hung. We made some cookies with mom.....but we ate your share yesterday. Yum.
They were really good. 

Sorry about that Santa. We really have been good this year....... Honest. 
We will leave some fresh carrots and extra cheeze- its for you, they will be in the kitchen here.  

And Santa, since this house is blessed with lots of love already, please leave a little extra something under the trees for the children who need it more then we do....... That's what we really want for Christmas.

Tell ya what Santa, to make things a bit easier for you to see, we'll even leave the lights on the tree for you. 

Glowing and twinkling..... just like Rudolph's nose.

Merry Christmas Santa!

With love and grateful hearts forever,

PS- Santa, if you and your elf's have some extra time and want to see more of our holiday home........ and take a potty break, you can go here.
