It's that time of year again, time to dig out the letter that I wrote to Santa when I was 4 years old. I love this letter, it makes me smile every year.
My handwriting was just as bad then, so here is the translation:
I love you. We will be in Florida for Christmas. I want a Baby Tender Love that squeaks. I want an Evil Knievel. I want Crash Bang Crash 'em up. Please send me a Bicycle.
Diane Elizabeth Lipgens
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
