Cheoah’s Santa Claus Letter For Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner so we are sharing our missives to Mr. Claus with our wish list. Today, we share Cheoah’s Santa Claus letter.

Clearly stressed for the holidays.

Dear Santa Claus,

Can we discuss this naughty or nice thing? You see, Hu-Dad says I am an instigator. He thinks I entice my brothers – particularly the two youngest ones – into doing something wrong. Just as chaos is breaking out, I can be found sitting innocently with the sweetest look on my face. Technically, that means I didn’t do anything wrong so I don’t belong on the naughty list.

As Father Christmas, you are on good terms with Mother Nature, right? If so, would you tell her to make up her mind. It’s Christmas week and we have yet to have a single snow flake fall. With all of this cold, snowless weather, I have taken to napping on the warm floors (our radiant heat) and chasing sunny napping spots. So, either let’s get some snow going or just skip straight to warmer weather.

I am slightly challenged as the official Sous Chef of Chez Herd. I am just a wee bit shorter than everyone else and the counters are just out of my reach. How am I supposed to sample the meals Hu-Dad prepares? So I need a Siberian Step Stool (or lower counters).

Hope all of you have a safe trip (no snow forecast here – sigh). As the only “red” here at Chez Herd, please tell Rudolph hello.

Merry Christmas,

Cheoah

Why are these counters so tall?

    We were hoping you’d have snow for Christmas, but looked up the forecast and see 60s. Wish we could send some your way. Is a snow-making machine on your wishlist?

    Well now how could anyone think you’re an instigator Cheoah!!! There is just no way your sweet red self could ever be on the Naughty List! So… no worries baby girl. And I know Mother Nature will oblige you soon enough. Merry Christmas CheeseWhiz ????☃

    A very good letter Cheoah. I am sure Santa will pay special attention to your requests. Maybe Hu-Dad can give you a low table to stand on so you can properly supervise food preparations.
