Dear Santa Claus – I have been good in school.  I want a doll that will cry real tears, and a cowgirl suit.  Ralinda wants a cry baby doll.  My cousin, Mary Lee Dement, wants a doll.  She is moving toTyler.  Mother has a surprise for her.  She got her something.  I want a zipper notebook.  And I want a watch.  Is everybody happy on Christmas?
