It will be just like your here with us, but we will save the presents for you to open.

How does that sound? I'll even put a big piece of your birthday cake in the freezer for you.

I'm going to send you a package with some of your presents, decorations and all the other goodies so that you have something to open for your birthday.

I'm sorry that I didn't think of this in time to get everything there before your birthday. Will you and the boys be dressing up for Halloween or having a party?

I told Bill what you had said in your last letter, when he came by to fix the dryer, and he says not to worry. He told me that they would send out the troops only if there were an active war going on, and that they would send out the most experienced ones first anyway.

You should see the plant that he gave me. I believe that it's grown over a foot tall already, and there is the biggest bud at the bottom of it. The thing is sprouting so fast that sometimes I swear I can see it growing right before my eyes.

It's just the craziest thing. If it doesn't stop soon, I'm going to have to set it on the floor and tie it to the back of one of the dining room chairs just to keep it from tipping right over.

Kallie got her first report card for this school year and she is doing pretty well. 3A's, 3B's and a C. Not too bad compared to last year at all.

Maye talked me into getting my hair cut at the new beauty shop. I'm not sure if I like it yet. I've worn my hair the same way for so long that such a change has been difficult for me to get used to.

Everyone says that it looks great though. When you get the pictures of your Birthday party you will get to see it. Let me know what you think.

In answer to your letter, Martin and his sweet little family coming to stay for a visit, well of course. Your friends will always be welcome here, you know that. Besides, it will give me a good reason to give the guest room a good spruce-up cleaning that it really needs anyway.

Kallie said that the babies could stay in her room with her. How are our Martin and the little mother to be? How are you eating?

You still haven't mentioned a thing about the food there. Is the weather still hot? We've had just over six inches of snow on the ground for about a week now. I think that winter is officially here. Copyright 2016 - 2023
