MERRY CHRISTMAS! I have been looking forward to your coming to our house. I know it’s hard to pick out for all the children. So I wrote this list so you know what I want. I don’t want to sound greedy but this is the only way to tell you what I want ……………. I want a new record player, Snoopy and Bell dolls, Monopoly game, Smurf View-master, tape recorder, E.T. doll. You have to think now. Please write your name here. ____________________________________ (with a little check box)
