Letters to Our Sons: December

letters to our sons

Dear Pookah,

It’s the Day before Christmas and you are SO EXCITED.

I think this is the first year that you really understand that come tomorrow morning, there is going to be something under the tree for you!

I find you looking at our chimney, trying to figure out how Santa is NOT going to get stuck.

I hear you singing Christmas songs under your breathe while spontaneously bursting out “FIVE GOOOOLLLDEEEN RIIIIIIINGS!”

I am so grateful for you this Christmas because you are reminding me that Christmas is about giving and family and love.

You are reminding me of the magic of my childhood and I love being able to see it through your eyes.

Merry Christmas Baby…


Love Mama.

This post has been a series of posts this year that I and a group of photographers have worked on this year. Next, follow Quad City Newborn Photographer, Aubrey Schlue, of Aubrey Dawn Photography over to  to read her letter this month.


I have so enjoyed doing these letters this year! My next plan is to make a book out of them with Artifact Uprising or Blurb so that Pookah can look back over the year in the future and read these letters. In fact, I’m going to continue this next year!

    Love this series and he can always go back and read them. Set up an email for him and give him one in the email so he can get the email when he is older.

    Merry Christmas to him and your family! I love it when they get to that age of understanding! To be a kid again!

    Oh my goodness, what a wonderful idea. The things I try to communicate to my sons (especially my 19yo) don’t always sink in, which causes me frustration.

    I write them now. They read it later when maturity will cause them to “get it”. Yes yes yes. Me likey.
