Dear Santa


Santa has become absolutely magically for Tatum this Christmas. I have never been one to promote Santa, trying to keep commercialism to a minimum... Nevertheless, Tatum has been so cute, this year writing letters to Santa, coloring pictures, and quizzing me on the logistics of Santa operations. I am actually growing to enjoy her her sweet, innocent excitement, knowing that too soon she will be all grown up. I guess Santa is not so bad after all. He is the symbol of selfless giving--right??

Just wait until next year when you have to remember all the "Santa rules" you have told her. I'm getting pretty consistent now that I have 2 little ones completely in awe of how it all works.
My dad takes my little brother to the Phx Children's Museum all the time. Glad you had a great time.

yeah Eden is in love with the "magic" of the elves and Santa this year :) Christmas has been so fun this year.
I really like your haircut but I wish we could have just swapped hair! Once I cut it... I want it long, once I grow it out I want to chop it! It never ends.
Call me or whatever to let us know when you guys come down if you are up for hanging out. Eden has been talking about her birthday party for weeks and wants to invite Tatum (I've tried explaining CA is far away, but she still loves her 1st friend!)

I love it! Those pics are priceless, I love that she is so helpful to Davis to ask for what he wants too!!! Your kiddos are precious!

Must be the age. This is the first year that Jaimee would even sit on Santa's lap. Of course she has a list for Santa so I am sure she wanted to tell him what she wanted (everything that is not boy or baby).

I don't think I've ever realized how great Tatum's handwriting is! Her Santa letters are so cute!!! We need to do some serious catching up from the Holidays! Our family clearly missed out on some fun while we were gone!
