Saturday is my personal blog day, where you get to know a little more about me, my family or just every day life that I experience. I just have to share with you all, the letter I received in the mail today. 

It was really nice to receive a 'real' letter today in the mail. The letter was sent from my 6 year old niece, Michaela.

I opened it up to first find a card. Michaela has written in the card and decorated it with stickers, a thank you from her for the Christmas gift I sent.

Michaela's thank you card

It reads: "Dear Aunty Ruth, Thank you for my present. I wish you could stay at my house. love Michaela"

For those of you who don't know me, Michaela lives quite some distance away in Nelson. That's about a 4 1/2 hours drive and since I spent Christmas with my daughter, son-in-law and two sons, I didn't get to see Michaela so sent her Christmas present in the post. I hope you'll send me a photo of all the cookies you make Michaela!

Also along with her card was a letter, again this was decorated with stickers. Did I mention, that Michaela loves stickers? Maybe you'd like to send her some <grin>

Her letter, along with her card, is priceless.

Michaela's letter

It reads: "I love my Aunty Ruth said so Michaela and Aunty Ruth looking beautiful and Aunty Ruth looking glittery. Aunty Ruth you will like this story because it has some good words in it."

Thank you Michaela, it was fantastic to receive your letter and card.

Here is a photo of me and Michaela when I was up visiting early in December. You can see she really does love her Auntie.
