The end of the year quickly approaches. I haven't had a chance to write, but after flying into Detroit from Dushanbe, we headed up to the cottage. Kristin and her three kids came up, and the newest addition to the family, Layne Kathleen is gorgeous. A tiny, tiny quiet baby. She left, Lois visited and then Heidi, Chris and their kids came up. We had Christmas at Heidi and Chris' house in Davison on Christmas Eve and then, a quiet Christmas day at home in Caseville...just Alex, Richard and me.
We went down to Lansing yesterday for Layne's baptism at St. Jude's in Dewitt and then to Betty McNamara's huge farmhouse for a luncheon. We came home last night in a snowstorm and there is much much more a blowing today. NO company. Have seen Dave and Barb Vizard...Barb worked with Lois and me at The Flint Journal and I think Lois will again come up tomorrow for a day or so.
Not much going on...but we are in Caseville. Everyone except me has been out with grandpa ice fishing...had plenty of that years ago. I have been baking and cooking like crazy and enjoying it very much.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
