welcome to day fifteen!
today we wrote to santa. it was so much fun - aydan did such a good job with her printing - since starting school she has been wanting to write everything and her name is printed everywhere - and coop got into the fun as well by drawing out what he wanted. the lists were pretty humble with aydan asking me once for a big ticket item as a questions and i politely told her no and she was fine with that. she is growing up quite nicely - most days!
we actually mailed our letters to santa as well - canada post has a great system for that.
i copied out this page pretty much like how ali edwards did hers because i loved it so much - the three sections. i try not to piggy back on other peoples work but sometimes you can't beat a good thing!
and like her i decided to get into the action as well with a letter of my own - loved doing this as the journaling.
I used a transparency in this layout and look how it frames up coop when over on the other side - cool.
another year, another list. this year i can feel your spirit running through the kids and myself more than ever. aydan talks about you all the time but is still a bit weary about going to see you and cooper is catching on and is so excited for the whole experience. they both definitely have their own distinct lists - barbies for aydan and dinosaurs for cooper.
as for me i would like an electric toothbrush system (5th year i have asked for this!), the new "baked" cookbook, the car cleaned out and new runners. but i did get my present of having the main floor of the house painted. please be good to us!
