Dear Santa Claus,
How have you been? Did you have a nice summer? How is your wife? I have been especially good this year, so I have a long list of presents that I want.
Charlie Brown Christmas is my all-time favorite Christmas movie. I watch it several times a year (I mean, it's like 25 minutes long, so that's really not saying much) and it always brings back wonderful memories of my favorite season.
So, like greedy little Sally, I am going to write my letter to Santa (who still comes to my house) (yes, I am 27 years old) in case he needs a reminder of what I want for Christmas this year.
Do you remember my letters to you when I was little? When I wrote out detailed, indexed Christmas lists, complete with pictures and other helpful identifying information? I'm glad you didn't give up on me then, because I was pretty obnoxious.
I've come to realize as I grow older that I am pretty blessed. And, as cheesy as it sounds, Christmas means more than gifts (Linus was right, huh?) and I already have everything I could want (except my sisters home for Christmas, but I sadly think that is out of your control).
That being said...here are a few things on my Christmas list this year.
my favorite Pink lotion
pretty pearl studs
Penzey's chili powder (or any Penzey's spices, really)
a super-insulated coffee mug
That's not too much to ask, is it?
All I want is what I have coming to me! All I want is my fair share!
