I pay a lot more attention to what children do around Christmas, now that I have a small child. It never dawned on me that kids today want to e-mail Santa. I'm sure I've read stories on it before but apparently, it hasn't made enough of an impression that I internalized it.
Recently, I saw an e mail from Olivia's six year old cousin Camie, written to Santa. I laughed and laughed. What happened to the good old days with crayon penmanship? Camie's mom had to type it in for her, and pretend to hit Send.
I searched for him on Facebook but was surprised there's no individual with that page, just groups and one application. Pretty funny though.

Please can Camryn have a pink DS for Christmas. I will leave cookies out for you on Christmas night.
I was a good girl in school and at home. I'm trying my hardest in school. I hope you have a safe chrismas eve.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
We spent the morning at my cousin's, where the fun was watching five children demolish hoards of presents in under ten minutes. The best gift I got? The gift of a wonderful family.
