Dear McKenzie, Casey, and Alicia,
Merry Christmas, girls! Have you had a good holiday so far?
Thank you for all the cookies and the carrots for Rudolph. They were very good! I especially liked the butterscotch chips. I don't get those at EVERY house, you know. Rudolph asked me to say Thanks for the vegetables, but wondered if maybe he could get some carrot cupcakes next year. He loves to lick off the frosting!
Your mom and dad have told me that you've been very good girls this year.
McKenzie, I've heard about how much you care about the people that are homeless, and I think that's very special. I hope you will always have compassion for people who don't have as much stuff as you do. That's a very unique quality to have.
Casey, I've seen how much you've been helping your mom around the house lately and I know that she really appreciates all your hard work. It shows a lot of responsibility and maturity that you've been helping so much, without even being asked.
Alicia, my secret penguin spies tell me that you've been a big help to your parents this year, too! I'm really proud of you for being such a hard worker and always getting your homework done first thing when you get home from school. It's pretty special the way you always give your mom a hug when she's having a hard day. That shows that you have a very caring heart, and I like to see that in everyone.
Seeing as you've been so helpful and compassionate this year, I had my elves search high and low for the perfect gifts for you. I hope you like what's in your packages and your stockings. But, that didn't seem to be quite enough, and I really wanted to bring you the perfect gift.
First, I thought that you might like this... but Mrs Claus told me it would melt too quickly.
Then, I thought that maybe this would be fantastic! But the elves in my legal department said that it might be illegal in your state.
Then, I was sure I found the perfect gift!! But your mom informed me that she would never make cookies for me again if I did. So I put it back really fast!
Finally, I think I've settled on just what you'd like. I know you asked for money for a dog, but I'm afraid that I just can't give out money. It goes against the Santa Claus Code of Honor. Unfortunately, the gift I finally picked out won't be ready for delivery until the middle of January, so you'll have to wait until then for it to arrive. But, I hope that the wait for the present for you girls will be worth it. Look for it here at this website.
You'll find some things that you might find useful for it in a basket on the washing machine.
Merry Christmas to you! Be good for your parents this year!
And don't forget Rudolph's carrot cupcakes!
P.S. Alicia, I'm glad you still believe in me. I still believe in you, too!
