Before writing to you we discussed with Kate what kind of things to ask for. She wanted us to be realistic, not in the things we asked for, but for the intangibles that we wanted to ask for from you as well. Okay we will try to be more realistic in that way, and not ask for world peace, for example, which is what we have always wanted more than anything else in the world, and instead ask for tangibles and some intangibles thrown in as well, things that we would like to happen in our life for us Littles.
I hope that you won’t think we are writing to the point of avarice and that we understand that many of the things we ask for might not come in the morning, but have to wait for a while and might come from others or Kate. We understand. We really do. We are very patient. Sometimes it is important to wish for something, so that your wishes can get out into the universe.
We have several small balls, but we don’t have any big balls and we would like some. Since we have a glove, we would like a softball, and a football, and a volleyball, and a basketball, and a soccer ball. We also would like to have two badminton racquets, so we can play with someone else if we ever find someone to play with, and lots of shuttlecocks so that we have plenty to play with without having to get up and retrieve them from where we are sitting.
We would also like to have lots more board games, cause we love them and have lots of fun playing them.
We recently saw a Trivia Seinfeld game that we think we would like a lot. Many of us Littles watched the show over the years it was on and since then as well. Though Kate has said that many of the topics on the show were adult and not something for us to watch, she has allowed us to continue being fans of the show. There are several Seinfeld games, so just to be sure you understand, we want the “Seinfeld Trivia game” and the Seinfeld Clue game would not go amiss either.
Mostly importantly, for the board games, are people wanting to play them and who have good sportsmanship when it comes to playing. Otherwise we can’t have any fun with the games.
A few potent words here, coloring books. We have them and some new crayons, but they stay new, we need time to color and more coloring books. Kate says no far too often.
This past year Kate bought us a lot of dolls and a couple of stuffed bears. But we would like some more stuffed animals, different kinds and some plastic animals as well. We just have a few dinosaurs and a rhinoceros right now. We would definitely like an elephant and a giraffe.
And the girls say that they would definitely love some more dolls, especially some ethnic little dollies that they love so much.
But us boys, Santa, we don’t have a lot of boy toys. we don’t have any Star Trek or Star Wars, but we would especially like some Star Trek toys. We would also like to be able to start a robot collection, nothing rare or expensive, just a few robots that we could put on a shelf would be great and we do look at the used stores, but lots of those are in bad condition and not worth having. We don’t have any hot wheels or tractors or fire trucks or barns or farms and seriously we would like to start getting something in that area of the toy department.
As well I know that we have lots of craft books, but not a lot of supplies and not a lot of crafting is going on. So that is another Santa wish for us.
Also dress up and fun clothes, feather boas, infinity scarfs, little hats, and as always comfortable clothes to bike in. Also someone to go biking with and to go to movies with. There are some great animated movies, fantasy and science fiction movies that we would love to see in the theater. We would love to go see the last Hobbit movie in the theater, if at all possible.
We would also like a nicer bigger apartment. Our apartment is so small, we’ve lived in studio apartments in the past that were even bigger than this one. And we would like to live somewhere with an elevator. Going up and down the stairs is very taxing for us right now and sometimes limits how much we get out and about.
We are on the waiting list for the apartment complex on the other side of downtown with bigger apartments and an elevator, which will be great to get to move there, Santa please say some good words for the people in charge of the list. We promise to be a good tenant there.
If we were really dreaming we would ask for a good treadmill, and a good stationary exercise bike. We have used ones that are very inexpensive, so the quality is not so good. We are using them and hoping for something better.
A new great bed would also be wonderful as that would do as much to improve our health as the exercise equipment. With our health issues we just don’t have good sleep and a great bed would hopefully help that.
Also dear Santa more doggies in our life. We love doggies. We promise to be good to them and to take care of them and love them and train them. We know we can’t afford to have one right now, financially and spacially. But more doggies in our life will brings lots more love, laughter, and happiness into it. So please Santa try to think of a way for us to be around doggies more.
Since we can’t have a doggie in our apartment could you please talk to Kate about talking to the apartment manager about what kinds of pets we could have. It says in our lease that we need written permission so we need to find out about that. A fish, even, might be nice.
Dear Santa thank you so much for reading our letter, caring and loving us and all the children of the world, for all the teens of the world, and for all the little children inside all of the adults of the world. We love you and you mean so much to us. You mean so much to us, all year round.
Good and healing thoughts to you, to your wonderful wife, and to all your helpers around the world.
With love and admiration,
