Santa, I have been in the hospital since summer but the doctors are going to let me spend Christmas at home with my family! I think it will be a very good Christmas. Please don't forget my friends and all the other people spending Christmas in the hospital .

Whatever you bring me Santa will be nice enough, I know that I won't get everything I want; but the most important thing is that I have a Mommy and Daddy who loves me. Thanks Santa........Love, Caitlin

Please bring something special for my Marmo. This is her first Christmas in heaven. We will miss her jello at Christmas dinner.

Started out sunny and 50F, but by early afternoon, it was cold and blustery, with dark clouds and leaves flying everywhere.
Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat). Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already). Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
Once strawberries are filled, top with the 'hats.' Decorate according to photo. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.
Thanks to reader Virginia for this fun recipe idea!
