Inscription verso (handwritten): I am four years old and weigh fourteen pounds. I love to play with Christmas packages. Ella said these look like overlapping planes. They'll get pretty dynamic by the time I get through with them. Hope you have a very purry Christmas too. I am yellow like a Tiger. Tuffy.
