Jeremy finally got up just before eight. He was so excited to see the box because he got one like it last year.
As he was opening it, he said, "I hope it is a magic mailbox again!"
Santa taped it shut with peppermint duct tape so it was a little difficult to open. After he got one side cut, we discovered that the tape on top wasn't stuck tight so he was able to pull it off.
Inside the box was letter explaining that it was indeed one of Santa's magic mailboxes. The letter explained that the mailbox has a direct connection to the North Pole. Whenever Jeremy puts a letter in the mailbox, it will be magically sent to the North Pole that night while everyone is sleeping. Then Santa can write him back using the mailbox to deliver it. Santa will pick the mailbox up on Christmas Eve to take back to the North Pole, but Jeremy can write to him as often as he wants until then.
Here are some more pictures of Jeremy with Santa's mailbox...
After we put the mailbox on the entertainment center, Jeremy and I went to the dining room to clean up the glitter. It was everywhere! Most of it was on the table, and we were able to brush most of that into the garbage, but there was some on the chairs and floor, including a path of glitter from Jeremy taking the box into the living room. Jeremy is writing to Santa right now. He said he is going to ask him to use his magic to make the rest of the glitter dissolve. He is such a fun kid, and I'm very lucky to have him as my little brother!
