I’m writing a letter to my host family in Australia. They are a family of five and I’d like to write it in a friendly way.
So, does the expression ‘Dear [surname]’s family’ sound friendly? I’d like to write ‘Dear Smith’s family’ for example. I thought that it was too formal to write for a family including a little boy, but I don’t know whether my guess is correct because I’m not a native English speaker.
I would appreciate it if you could tell me its nuance.
