One of my kids -- Fred -- likes baseball, so I wrote to him about the World Series and my excitement, since "my" Giants are playing. I included a couple of newspaper pages which had color photos and there was one photo, life size, of a baseball, which I pasted on the back of sticky paper to give it some strength. I hope he likes it all.
I also got a couple of birthday cards that you can record yourself. Pedro in Brasil has a January birthday, so I recorded myself singing "Happy Birthday" in Portuguese (which we used to do frequently, so I'm good at it!). I still have to decide what I'm going to record for Briana in Haiti.
