Santa Sends Thank-You Letter!

I've been meaning to blog about this for at least a month, but gosh, time sure does go by fast when you are so busy!!!

Remember when Little Boy sent out Thank You cards for his Christmas presents? Well that day he was in the kitchen rummaging around... being extra quiet which always makes me investigate! He was sorting through a box of European chocolates and putting a select few in a small gift box to send to Santa - as a thank you gift in return for all the wonderful gifts he got. What is a Momma to do? Kiss the European chocolate goodbye!

Anyway, in a few short days, Little Boy received a thank you letter from Santa! How exciting!!! Here is a photo of Santa's stationary. It was actually a fairly long letter and obvious that Santa really "knew" Little Boy. And - 2 small photos from the envelope - the 1st is the reindeer stamp with a postmark from... The North Pole. The back of the envelope statement says that the letter is brought to you by the volunteers at Canada Post. Also - it tells you that Canada holds the Guinness World Record for the most Santa letters received and replied to. How cool is that?

This Momma just so happens to have insider information that the post mistress really enjoyed those European chocolates too! LOL. She has been with the post office for years and she told me that it was the 1st time she could think of when a little child sent Santa a thank-you gift!
