Tonight Hazel and I decided it would be a fantastic idea to write a letter to Santa Claus. She’s very into Santa and Christmas trees right now, and when I broached the idea of writing Santa a letter in the mail Hazel was overjoyed. Amos and I helped her out a bit with the content, but it should be pretty clear which sentences were Hazel’s idea.
It may be hard to read, so here’s a transcript:
Do you want to sing the ABC song? Our neighbor has a statue of you. I love Christmas! I like jingle bells, Christmas trees, and Christmas lights. Thank you for having Christmas. Santa is my friend.
Underneath there you can see where Hazel drew “letters” for Santa. All those zigzags are how she draws ABCs! After that we sat down and had a nice chai tea. She’s been expressing interest in drinking our coffee and tea lately (most of which is decaf). We have let her have sips now and then, and tonight I gave her a little of my tea in her own cup. It was adorable.
