I thought it would be a cute idea for a kid who keeps it so later on won't realize mom wrote it/ it was printed.
Whoa! Smart mama to trace the calligraphy, and super smart kiddo to figure it out! I was thinking of having a friend write it for me, or using my left hand. I am somewhat ambidextrous, but I rarely write with my left hand anymore, so it wouldn't look anything like my "normal" hand writing. I figure I could do it each year, and it would look similar enough from year to year, but it still wouldn't be a hand writing that DS would recognize.

I am so excited for December to get here now! Thanks for all of the ideas!

The PX over here sponsers "letters to santa" basically you take the envelop, self address/stamp it then put it in the box. They send it off to whereever it is (forgot where) and it comes back post marked by "Santa". My daughter is to smart for that "Mommy, those aren't REALLY from Santa", shes not even 4. Last year my FIL had a part time job as Santa at a local fair while we were visiting, first time she saw him she pulled me aside "Mommy, that not Santa, that grandpa!", she wasn't even 3 at the time. haha Can't fool this kid!

I have friends in North Pole, Alaska and they do the same thing as was mentioned for the town of Santa Clause... every year hundreds upon hundreds of letters arrive there for santa and various groups volunteer to reply. Apparently it's a fairly generic letter, and they only reply to letters that are obviously written by children (and have legible addys ), but it's a real live paper letter from the North Pole. Or, at least, "a" North Pole!

Santa used to leave me a letter/ note to open X-mas morning.

Found out years later, my dad and the neighbor would trade letters. My dad would write the letter for the neighbors kids, and neighbor man would write mine.

Santa would thank me for being good and the snack we left out (not cookies), but instead we always left leftovers. As my dad was certain that Santa got cookies and milk in all the other house's, and how he would remember our house as we would leave out some lasgana or the like instead! lol
