Writing Another Santa List

Anna reads her list to Santa

Another year, another Santa list.

Anna wrote her own for the first time last year. It was a challenge, given her difficulties with handwriting, but it was a fairly short list and she did okay.

This year, she had a longer list. We didn’t mind. She went though a very tough year—losing our bunnies and moving to a new school—and she has handled it all well.  She wrote her list out all by herself and every word was legible. We figure Santa will be as proud of her as we are, and will gladly bring her everything she wants.

  • A barbie jet or a barbie cruise ship.
  • A jewelry-making kit.
  • Daisy or Trixie (both Fur Real Friends® pets).
  • An Anna and Elsa doll (from the movie Frozen).
  • A pogo stick.
  • A remote-controlled car.
  • Toy Story DVDs
  • A Hot Wheels track set.
  • A Little Mermaid or Frozen play set.
  • Lincoln Logs.

“That’s a sackful!” I said as we waited in line.

“I gave Santa choices.” she replied. “Maybe half a sack.”

“No, I think that sack’s gonna be full.”

It took almost two hours, and she was so patient. When it was finally her turn, she stepped right up, sat next to Santa, and read her list.

Her speech has come so far in the last few years, and her handwriting has improved so much in just the last few months. Watching her, we were both so proud.

Yeah, that sack’s gonna be full.
