I’m dreadfully sorry about how long it has taken me to write back to your letter! I have been spending so much time helping out with the various Pleasantville charities. We’re putting together these sweet little Christmas baskets for all of the poor people- to give them a bit of Christmas cheer. At the moment I am trying to remember what our famous turkey recipe is so we can bring it to the Masked Ball later on this evening. It is going to be such fun! I am all dizzy with the excitement! I can’t wait to see you and your sisters and all of your masks. So what is new around your home? Have you been doing any ballet practice? Because the Nutcracker is almost upon us. We’re determined to make a gingerbread house this year, we used to make one very year but have only recently really gotten settled in this house, so we’ll start this year. I love gingerbread houses, don’t you? Please write back soon!
Yours, Samantha E. Parkington
