Though she has not fully grasped the entire concept, to see her excitement and wonderment over the decorations, the presents, and Santa takes Christmas to a whole new level. She is fully obsessed with Sesame Street and all of its fuzzy muppets, so shopping for gifts has been really fun versus last year when a pacifier or a sippy cup of milk was higher on her list of favorite things.
Her school has a mail day each Wednesday. During the month of December you can send a letter from Santa for your child. I really didn’t think it would have a big impact but sent a letter for Shelby anyway. Her teacher said she loved hearing the letter being read to her and carried it around the rest of the day. She showed everyone who came in the room her letter from Santa.
We have some fun family activities planned for the holiday week like a train ride with Santa and I’m sure we will take in some Christmas lights and attend church. I hope you all thoroughly enjoy the holiday season with your family and loved ones.
