Sunday: baptism of the youngest niece, Miss Evelyn Joy Dahlin (with Pastor Nixon, Matt and Maylene, and Daniel)
Monday: girl's movie & food night, and the day I figured out how to make biscotti
Tuesday: I went to the dentist. No pictures. Ha!
Wednesday: my sis Vicki and her kids came over. Hailey and I painted our nails.
Thursday: gathering at Grandpa and Grandma Smiley's. The house that means happiness.
Also: Devon, my youngest nephew, gained a bunch of new fans
Also: the family's 2 sets of twins on Grandma's stairway. Abel and Seth, Meredith and Madalynn. Yay for cousins!
Friday: I worked on my thesis. Sorry, no pictures of that either. It was mostly tea and Christmas music and my fingers moving as fast as they could.
Saturday: The younger ones took me sledding. Here, Lydia, Seth and Naomi breaking a trail.
Also: snow angels were made.
And Charlie accompanied us
Stowing the sleds for the day
Sunday: we shoveled my car out and made it down the driveway without dying.
It's time to head back to student life: warm study, music, sisters, books, latin.
