7 years, 1 month.
I must say that after celebrating 7 Christmases with you, this has so far been the most exciting for me to see you anticipate. Yes, that’s right… I get excited to so you so excited!
The best way I could word it, is that this year, you took your visit with Santa so seriously, that you nearly treated it as a business transaction.
You knew you must depend on him seeing your wish list and that your presentation may have an affect you actually getting what you asked for. On your list, you specifically wrote on your paper:
You were truly on your best behavior. I’d even go as far as to say you were the most polite, well-behaved child in that room.
And as your sister became frightened by Santa, as she doesn’t understand who he is, the way you do, you were there to help calm her down.
However, I’m sure Santa must have been a little confused as to how he’s supposed to bring you more Pokemon cards, when you already seem to have them all! Oh well, we will just have to let him sort that one out.
As we were leaving, I discreetly asked you, “Jack, was that the real Santa?”
You immediately replied, “Yes. You could tell because his beard was attached to his face and he had long hair.”
To you, there was no question about it. Not only was that the real Santa, but you definitely believe in him. Similarly, you still have just as much imagination and faith to hope that Pokemon characters are real, too.
So I know this is going to be one of your favorite Christmases. It’s so much fun when you have so much to believe in… and so many Pokemon cards to expect underneath the tree!
