Well, it’s that time of year again, and what better way to start than with Noah’s letter to Santa? We did it in record time this year, only four days after Thanksgiving! And, just like when we did last year’s letter, Noah had me giggling and smiling the entire time.

I sat down with him at the computer and told him I would write anything he wanted on his letter. No instructions. No hints. No gentle pushes in any particular direction. Just me, typing whatever my 4-year old said. Enjoy… here it is, word for word. Click it to enlarge.

Oh, and my favorite part… when he signed his name at the end. He wrote the N and the O so big that there wasn’t a lot of room left for the A and the H. I asked him if he wanted me to print another copy so that he could try again and he said, “no way, Dad! I can just put the A and the H inside of the O!” And he did.

PS, what’s the funniest thing your child ever put on his list for Santa? I remember as a kid, we used to sit with notebooks in front of Saturday morning cartoons and write down every toy that looked awesome in the commercials. Good times.
