Letter to Santa + Harper at 3

This is Harper's letter to Santa Claus.Here's a translation she gave me for those of you who don't read preschooler.And here is a picture of a trampoline with a slide that goes ziiiiip.Harper at 3 (well, 3 1/2 really) is a pretty cool kid. We have our moments, of course, but that's what time out is for, right? At 3 1/2, Harper:
- Is obsessed with the human body. She's calmed down about it over the last few weeks, but she'd love nothing more than to cuddle up and read about intestines or watch a discovery channel show about brain surgery.
- Likes to do projects (or "pa-jects" as they sound when she says it)
- Can count to 100
- Can spell her first and last name (I guess singing the spelling of her name to her to the tune of the Mickey Mouse song since birth has finally paid off)

- Can write a few letters (H, A, F, O, Z and sometimes a few others)
- Can write and spell a few words (zoo, off, no)
- Loves to write "notes" and send emails on Daddy's ipad
- Still sings her little made up song "I love you. You love me. We are the best friends together."
- Eats a few more foods/vegetables, but only when we bribe her
- Speaking of bribes, she loves peppermint patties and chocolate
- Goes to preschool two mornings a week and likes it
- Is 38.5 inches tall and weighs 32 pounds
