50 Things That Made me Smile

Here are some quotes from letters that made me smile.  Some because they are sweet, some are humorous, and some for no particular reason at all.  The ages are the child's age at the time of writing, not their age now. There are a lot more than just 50, so I will continue this in a second part at a later date!
