Last year she really understood the concept of asking Santa for a few gifts because she was good. To help Santa last year she brought him a page torn out of the Target toy catalog. This year she can write!
She is allowed to ask for 3 gifts and I knew this would make a long letter. My mom has a light table for tracing, so I wrote the letter out like Princess D wanted and had her trace the letters. She did a pretty good job!
She was so proud of her letter and excited to show Santa. We showed up right when the mall opened to avoid the line (and the other kids spreading the H1N1 virus on to to Santa's suit). She patiently waited in line holding her letter. When it was her turn she confidently walked over to Santa and introduced herself. She sat on his lap and showed him her letter. I saw him nod his head and then they took their photo together.
This weekend her dad will take her to mail her letter at Macy's. I guess Santa better get shopping!
