Letter to Santa

Calder sort of freaked out when he realized that he really wanted a piggy bank for Christmas after we had already visited Santa.  He was very concerned about how Santa would know.  So, I suggested that we write Santa a letter...
He was so proud of his letter.  He kept "reading" it over and over.  When Dave got home, he bragged about how he did it all by himself, without any help from Mommy.  (That's sort of true... he composed the letter himself and did all of the writing, I just provided some major spelling assistance.) 

After he finished, he had the great idea to give the letter to Elfie (our Elf on a Shelf) to personally deliver to Santa tonight.  Elfie agreed, so I carefully placed the letter in Elfie's lap (without touching him of course, for fear he would lose his magic!)
After that, he wanted to write a thank-you note to Elfie for delivering the letter to Santa...but we haven't gotten around to writing that one yet.  :)
