Pat Wahler of Missouri.
In Pat's e-mail entry, she also shared this charming Christmas memory:
"As a kid, even after I'd grown too old to "believe", there was something about lying in bed on Christmas Eve. You could almost hear the sleighbells and feel the magic.

Until Monday, have a great weekend, stay warm, and take time to write.
