Dear Kids,
      Aubrey’s baby blessing was really nice. It was fun to see Heather’s parents and sisters. I noticed that Jenny had an engagement ring. She said yep, she’s met the right guy. He lives next door to her. (She moved in with her Aunt.) John said that follows the rule of proximicity (or something like that.) You’re more likely to marry your next door neighbor than anybody else. Well, it worked for Jenny.
      Carson and Ellie had a sleepover here Friday night. We had lots of fun. They played with toys and watched movies. Carson saw me making cupcakes, and he said, “At my house, after breakfast, we always have dessert. And our dessert is always cupcakes.” So of course I said he could have cupcakes for dessert, after breakfast.
      I’m finishing my letter here at Grandma and Grandpa’s, once again. Their piano is gone! Grandma couldn’t sit on the bench very long without pain, so she decided to give the piano to Bonnie. Meanwhile, the piano Bonnie’s had all these years, which used to be Grandma’s, which is the one I grew up with, is going to Mark and Heather’s house. It fits their 50's decor perfectly. So, now there’s more room in Grandma and Grandpa’s living room, but no piano, boo hoo. Oh, well, if Grandma decided she needs a piano after all, we can have the fun of going out and choosing a new one. It’s always fun.
      Our next cabin get-together will be April Conference weekend, March 30th to April 1st. Anyone who can make it, it should be fun. Seth’s dad is making us a barbecue rack to put over the fire pit, and if we’re able to get it by then, and if the weather’s nice, we can grill meat over the fire. I’ve never done it before, but it ought to be fun.
      Lots of Love, Mom
