Brant got a letter from Santa!

Wow!  Brant had a surprise in the mail today!  Besides finally getting his new mittens from L.L.Bean (now that it's in the 50s for the week), he had a personally addressed letter from Santa!

We took Brant's letter to Santa to the special Santa mailbox at the post office.  We didn't get it mailed until around the second week of December, and Brant was getting a bit concerned.  He went into the post office with me, and there, sitting on the counter, was a specially decorated shiny red mailbox.  Grinning, Brant opened it up and it played music!  Slipping his letter inside, he looked quite satisfied.  Mission completed.  Candy cane in hand and reindeer stamped, he left a happy little boy.

So today, what should arrive, but a very special letter!  Trying to open it, Brant said, "Boy, I didn't know Santa could stick things so good!"  Finally surrendering it to me, we got it open...and here is what is said.

All I can say is that the spirit of Christmas and St. Nicholas is still alive in the world and Santa, thank you for writing to my little boy!
