Growing up, Santa always seemed to be quite cold when he wrote us notes on Christmas.
His handwriting was all squiggly and jiggly supposedly from his shivers.

I don’t have any of his notes, but that same Santa wrote MY kids a few notes in years past.  Here’s one of them:

(I think he wrote a similar note to all the grandkids…)

It’s funny how now that I have kids, Santa does the same thing.
Every year.

So my heart melted when I found this note from one of our Christmas season “Secret Santa’s Helpers” to another:

If those “shakey” letters are so passed down from one generation to the next, it makes me think about all the other things I must be passing down to these children of mine.  The little things and the big things.

I sure hope they’ll remember and emulate the good at least a little more than the huffy bad 🙂


  1. Can I just say that I love your family? The example your parents set for you is amazing, and it sure seems like you and Dave are emulating that to a tee. 🙂
