The Coming of Christmas
Champaign already has the look of Christmas. During the past weekend we had over a half foot of snow and it is now sunny and the snow sparkles and crunches as you walk on it. For the first time today we have had some snow melt as it finally rose above freezing. We've been in the tens or low 20s since last Friday.
Your mother has not set a foot outside the house. Today she was supposed to go to the eye doctor, but she had a bad night (which means WE had a bad night) and I suspect she was still hesitant of falling on the ice and snow. I have an appointment tomorrow morning to have my eyes checked. A year ago my optometrist told me I have small cataracts on each eye and said if you feel your sight is getting worse check back. I don't know if it really is worse but I thought I would check back anyway. I'll let you know what he thinks.
Mika and his family will be driving to Kari's home in South Carolina later this week. Timo will fly in from Utah and they will have a half of the family reunion. We are so happy for them.
Tepa and I are delighted to spend a quiet time here in Champaign. I do hope you remember that telephome calls can go both ways.
Erik and Mindy and the kids will join with the Edward's family for Christmas. I believe Sherry and Troy will spend some time with his mom and dad and family.
SO MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL...HAVE FUN AND REMEMBER THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
Love from Mom and Dad
