I suspect that this may be the last year Allana believes in Santa Claus. She may have already let go of the idea ages ago, but she hasn’t shared that knowledge with anyone especially her little sister. Honestly, I think she hasn’t shared her doubt with me because she knows I still believe.
For four years in a row, Allana has asked for a stuffed polka dot elephant from the Island of Misfit Toys featured in the animated classic, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Each Christmas, Santa sent an apology letter explaining how the elves couldn’t make enough toys to fulfill every child’s request. It broke my heart to see the disappointment in her face but our Santa wasn’t willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a small collector’s toy on eBay.
This Christmas, both girls have asked for the stuffed polka dot toy, but thankfully Santa has teamed up with the elves at Build-a-Bear and he will finally be able to fulfill this long awaited request.
I hope this small stuffed toy delivers another year for Allana believing in Santa Claus.
