Although he JUST opened some presents this morning, today was the day for writing our letters to Santa. Alex got our materials all ready (and even color-coded the letters with name stickers-- she IS my daughter...) and we spent some time drafting.
Alex wants: a break-open geode, a lalaloopsy (whatever that is...Santa might need to do some background research), a bow and arrow for training, a disney princess dress and shoes. She was very strategic this year. I knew there were a few other things she had been thinking about, but when I asked her about adding them she said "Santa only picks a few things from the list" Apparently her chances of a 'real' Disney princess dress and shoes are much better this way. I will admit to being disappointed that she didn't continue her streak of asking for household items, (she's listed a humidifier and a ceiling fan in years past), but I guess that means all her immediate needs have been met ;-)
