Dear Santa, I'm sorry....

Last night I was messing around on the net while my children were watching Christmas specials on TV. After a little while, I looked up and noticed that my oldest son was scribbling something on a peace of paper with a crayon. Out of curiousity, I asked what he was doing. He replied that he was writing a letter to Santa. Assuming that it was your standard, "Dear Santa for Christmas I want _____", letter I replied, with, "Oh that's good dear" and went back to what I was doing. This morning I found his letter where he had left it, taped to a stand near the Christmas tree. Along with the letter there was the remains of a gingerbread house which he had made in his 1st grade class at school.(and had eaten all of the candy decorations off of). The letter read: Dear Santa clos, im sorey i ate all the candy and i hop that you wont be mad. love gabriel. and if you didin know, the howse is for you.

You sure have an adorable son. That is so cute. I still have some letters my son wrote to Santa and he is now 16. Santa would write back to him and he would be excited to see what santa would write. I miss those days.

That is so cute. You need to save that letter! Did you take a picture of the gingerbread house? Why not write him a letter back from Santa?

Awwwwwwww that is just too cute! I love how kids always do and say the sweetest things! Cherish that because sometimes the things they say and do aren't always quite that sweet lol. PurpleTeddyBear.

That's too cute, and so sweet. I hope Santa leaves him a cute little note as well. Santa used to leave my children Thank you notes every year. They are still with the decorations, I even found one in my sons drawer a few years back where he had saved it. Merry Christmas!

I think this is one of the cutest thing to do in the world. Soooooooooo sweeeeeeeeeet. I think you should collect and save the letters he has written. Someday he will be proud when he grow up that he had written a letter to the Santa Clause. I think little things like writting letter to the Santa Clause makes every mom pround. I think this is where the song like You better watch.. you better don't cry.. Santa Clause is coming to the town is great. First thing that came into my mind was this little sweet song.
