  1. Dear Kite, Got a chance to catch up on several of your postings here. Love the one about you and Marylynn in the snow going to see baby Jesus. Also I'm so happy to see a pic of your Christmas library. Since one of us needs to cherish these books of wisdom, I'm glad you've got such a fine collection. I've riddled mine down but I'll go over the titles w/you soon. I think you have them all except the one I adore about Santa's training school for reindeer. Love you, Cate

  2. Dear Cate, Of course, one reason I have such a fine collection is that you have shared so many titles with me and given me so many priceless presents. I shall order the reindeer book today! xoxo, K.
