Benjamin wrote his first-ever letter to Santa to put out with the cookies and milk last night on Christmas Eve. Or, rather, Dad asked Benjamin what he wanted to say to Santa, Benjamin told Dad, and Dad wrote most of it, except for a couple of bits Benjamin insisted he write himself; he focused so very hard writing the bits he did, and it was incredibly cute…
Hi. I’ve been a good boy this year. My brother Zachary was a good boy this year, too.
[Benjamin scribbles, saying each word out loud as he slowly, carefully writes…] (“It’s a good cookie.”)
Mommy has been a good girl, and Daddy was a good guy. Owen and Ollie and Laura and Lydia were good, too. Nana and Papa were good, too.

Santa, thank you for the presents.
We love you, Santa.
— Benjamin, Zachary, Mommy, Daddy and Yoda… (and [long list of cousins, aunts and uncles here])
Awesome, right? :)
We hope you had a great 2008…and we hope you have an even better 2009. Take care, everyone–we love you all.
