Santa Claus

I Appreciate Smiling Santa

Today I Appreciate….

  • Santa – I am Santa in my family – Well the Santa that writes letters to all the kids. Years ago when my oldest great nephew, Robert, was just a few years old I wrote him a letter from Santa. That started a tradition…

There are now 13 great nieces & nephews and yes I write to them all. Their mother’s send me the latest news on them. I always ask the moms — “What happened this year that they thought was exciting – not what you thought was exciting.”

I get emails from their moms telling me the latest & greatest news… I really love it as it keeps me posted on what is going on in their lives. I live between 160 – 190 miles from them – so I don’t see them often.

Robert is now 15 1/2 years old — and Yes I still send him his letter…. He says he doesn’t believe in Santa – – but I tell him I believe in Santa. 😉

That spirit of Santa – twinkling lights, jolly laughter and that childlike excitement! I’m going to be a believer forever! 😀
