This is so cute! My kids and grandkids are all grown and moved away. I think I'll send a link of this to my grands for the GREAT-grands...they're still little. Sweet lens, Blessed by a SquidAngel.

Brandi from Maryland on September 23, 2012:

This is a fun idea! My kids get a phone call every year from Santa...that's always fun. And the post office sent the kids letters from Santa last year after they sent out their wish lists addressed to the North Pole. They were so excited! :)

Kristen from Boston on September 23, 2012:

My kids would love this. I think we'll definitely have to do printable Santa letters this year.
