I am writing to you to let you know what a good 2 year old girl you have been this year.
Christmas is such a special time, a time for giving and for sharing and here in the North Pole we have been working very hard to make sure we are ready for Christmas Eve, when I visit all the little boys and girls in the world, bringing exciting gifts.
Mrs Claus and I have been checking with the elves and they tell us that you have been very kind to your friends and that makes Rudolph the red nosed reindeer very happy!
During the year you have been doing very well and keeping extremely busy:
* being excellent in dance class
* singing your ABC’s
* and you can count to 12
Well done Bella, keep up the good work! You make your Mummy, Carla very proud.
As you would expect, Santa's helpers have been very busy in the workshop making special gifts just for you. Since you have been so very good since last Christmas, my sleigh will be filled with surprises for you, your family and all your friends.
Mrs Claus tells me that you would like a Yoyo for Christmas. I’ll ask the elves to do their best.
Not long from now, I’ll be leaving the North Pole for my long trip on Christmas Eve, to visit you and your best friend Sonny in Chester le Street. Even though it’s a very long journey, I am looking forward to visiting No.10 Elmway most of all. Don't forget to leave my milk and cookie, I get very hungry on such a long journey.
Well Bella, I have to go now as there is still an awful lot of work to be done. Now be sure to go to bed early on Christmas Eve and please remember, I will only stop by when you are fast asleep. The reindeer and I will try to be very quiet when we land on your rooftop
