When Hubby dropped the twin Fries off at preschool this morning, we learned that their little field trip to the local middle school to write letters to Santa had made the paper.

Not only that, but the article was even on the front page.  The start of it, anyway.

Why, yes, we live in a small town.

One of the English teachers has been inviting preschoolers to visit her English classes since 2004 so that her sixth-grade students can help preschoolers write letters to Santa.  This year's sixth graders are the ones in the first crop of preschoolers to get help writing their letters back when the program first started.  (I think that's kinda neat.)

We knew about this field trip, about ten days before Christmas.  What we didn't know is that the kids' letters to Santa would be submitted to the paper, and that some would get published.  Kids from three preschools were at this event...eleven "Dear Santas" were printed...and both Medium and Small Fry's letters were chosen!

Dear Santa,
This year for Christmas, I want this because I have been good:  beach toys and pet reindeer.  Thanks!

Dear Santa,
For Christmas, I would like a doll baby.  I want more Hola [hula] stuff.  I also want a fish and squeaky fish, and new flipflops from Santa.  I have been a good girl this year. I also want a Barbie, a flag, a new house & a roller-coaster in the new house.  
Thank you, Medium Fwy

Dear heavens.

We're in trouble.
