Ok, it would seem the biggest trouble I am having is with the letter(s) indicated in violet below. I have this also on Photobucket. Sometimes I think it is "ct" and other times I think it is "ch" and yet other times I am totally at a loss. Some of the words are nonsense words, which make it that much harder for me.

Any guidance would be helpful. A complete translation into the roman alphabet, but still in german, of the entire page posted on photobucket would get me full-speed ahead. I'm not far off -- just a little bit!

Thanks everyone!

OH WOW! She's GOOD! She even got it to rhyme. Holy Camoly. Can she come over and read the whole book to us?

That's just too awesome. I can't get it to rhyme in English.

So the mystery letter is a "k"? I would never have got that. I have never heard "Rock" for "coat." Some of the words are not the German I am used to, which is probably a local dialet from Kempten, Allgaeu south of Muenchen / Munich (umlauts replaced with a following e because I don't know how to do it here). So words like that I have to look up. Or maybe I'm just too seriously out of practice.

Tell her danke, danke, danke (thank yous) and give her a big hug from me!

Frohes Weinachten!
