Tammi is send this picture to her dad because she knows how much it would mean to him too!
Have a Merry, Merry Christmas! I wish I could spend it with you. Mother and her new friend are taking me with them skiing so I will not be able to see you for the holiday.
I have enclosed the Tea Photo taken of me at the Magnolia Tea! Can you believe it, I am finally old enough to go to the tea! I used the money you sent me for my birthday and my babysitting money to buy my dress and pay for the picture and ticket. I even had my tea flowers preserved.
I sat with Miss, Willie Mae and Miss Sara. They were friends of Big Mama for all of her life. They told me great stories about her at the tea! They said having me there was like having her there! I really miss her so!
I hope you are able to come down to see me when I get back from Christmas break. I really want to talk to you. See you soon.
Your daughter Tammi Lyn
Here is the picture she sent.
