  1. Can I be in your family?? How fun was your Christmas! Love the pictures–I’m sure I’ll love the blog. I’m still so in the…you know…..90’s! ha-ha

  2. What fun you must have had–I didn’t know you’d gone snowmobiling. I like the blog idea–I am afraid of starting one because it might just be another unfinished project in my life!!

  3. WOW. What a beautiful family. But I need some catching up to do. How long has it been since I’ve seen my cousins? Have I ever met their children? I think a family reunion is a priority! Names, I need names! Love Kari
