Merry Christmas! 2009 Letter from Santa…

2009 Letter from Santa…

Dear Jess, Zach and Baby Caroline,

Merry Christmas!  Mrs. Claus and I have been keeping an eye on the Smith’s this year, checking to see who has been naughty and who has been nice.  You’ve had another busy and blessed year.  Glad to hear that Jessica recovered well from her liver resection surgery.  Mrs. Claus and I wanted to join your ski and snow-shoeing trip to Copper Mountain, maybe next time!  Christmas is just around the corner an all of us at the North Pole are very busy trying to get everything ready.  Glad you got to have a mini-vacation before Jess’ conference for Westwood College Career Services. Did you see any of my elves on your train trip to Winter Park, Colorado? The elves snuck off for a vacation before finishing up the Christmas gifts. My suit is nearly done and the sleigh is washed and polished; we added an Aggie bumper sticker to look a little more like the Aggie bus!

Great job throwing a SURPRISE 60th birthday party for Jess’ mom!  Also, we heard about your big mother’s day announcement… congratulations on the soon-to-be arrival of Baby Caroline!  I enjoyed the video documenting the progress of the nursery!  Baby Smith already has a lot of love in her life!

You’ve had lots of other excitement with weddings, birthdays, friends with new babies, exploring local tourist attractions, work trips to San Fran and Estes Park (no reindeer, but I heard you saw moose!) Glad you had the chance to visit Fredericksburg, Houston and to celebrate Thanksgiving twice! Family is such a blessing.

2010 looks to be another great year.  I heard that BNSF is in the process of being purchased by Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway. Can’t wait to hear more details! Your bundle of joy will bring lots of smiles and memories too.

All of us at the North Pole wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Remember to take a moment to remember the real reason for the season: Luke 1:35 The angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy–the Son of God.”

See you soon! I’m looking forward to the cookies and milk.

Merry Christmas,

Santa and the Elves

p.s. Can’t wait to meet Baby Caroline! It might be her first Christmas!
