This is not such a Marvy Mom thing, more like a Dynamic Dad thing...every year, my Father, in the tradition of his Father before him, writes a letter to us. The letter is usually filled with good advice, poignant thoughts, challenges to go forth and make the world a better place, etc. Last year, I wrote one for Kaetlyn and intend to do this going forward for my girls. We always look forward to these letters and it's great to go back and review them as part of life's lessons from dear old Dad as you get older. (A few years ago, my Dad decided we were adults and didn't need the letters anymore...we staged a revolt and the letters have been forthcoming since!) Similar to your Santa letters, a fantastic tradition! Oh! And reading the Christmas Story on Christmas Eve. A must-do. Just sayin'! :) xo

We always opened one present on Christmas Eve...it is always pjs so we don't look like ragamuffins in all of the Christmas morning pictures by the tree!
