My Letter to Santa

Fizzy Thoughts had the great idea of writing a letter to Santa! I haven't done this in so long, but what have I got to lose? Nothing to lose because by writing my letter to Santa I am entered in a contest to win a book! Now how fun is that? She mentioned being chatty in the letter, which I definitely do not have a problem with, but I hope you don't find it too boring. I have decided to make this a realistic letter to Santa and talk about more than books.

Dear Santa,

First of all I would like to apologize for not keeping in touch over the years as I should have. I know that you are a busy guy and shouldn't be expected to keep track of everyone's wishes without them writing you to let you know what they want. Even though I may not have written you every year, my family has been faithful when it comes to leaving you a few snacks on Christmas Eve, which you always seemed to partake.

I don't have too long of a list this year, but the most important one would have to be in regards to my little sisters health. She has been very sick over the last year, in and out of the hospital and actually had to spend Christmas in the hospital last year. Shey was put back in the hospital last week so my main wish from you is that she would be able to spend Christmas home with her family.

One of the other things that I have been wanting for awhile is an IPOD. I was hoping to get one for my birthday, but since that didn't happen now I've been hoping I will get one for Christmas.

And last, but not least, there have been a couple books that have caught my interest this year. The first one would be The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, because this book is written about the area that I live in. I just love reading books that indicate places that you are familiar with. Another book that I would really enjoy is Tis the Season by Lorna Landvik. Lorna Landvik's novels have a special place in my heart since Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons inspired the start of my bookclub.

I think I can honestly say that I have been a pretty good girl this year. I even helped to run the Operation Christmas Child program at our church this year. You may want to also check their website to see if they may need some assistance delivering some of those shoe boxes to the less fortunate children out there. I'm sure your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I wish you safe travel on Christmas Eve and don't forget to stop by my Christmas tree for a few snacks to keep you going throughout the evening! Merry Christmas to you!

I, too, love reading books set in a geographical area I'm familiar with. It's so much fun, isn't it!

I'll be praying for your sister and I hope an Ipod makes it your way. :)

I got an iPod last year and it changed my life. Seriously. I hope you get one!

Cool post. I really hope your sister doesn't have to spend another X-Mas in the hospital. It is all about the spirit and not the gifts isn't it? I think I am getting coal this year because I meant to do one of those shoeboxes and even e-mailed the website to others to encourage them to do the same. Then I got busy and missed the drop off. I won Edgar Sawtelle on a blog giveaway last week though so I guess someone is looking out for me this season.
