well, all my siblings came home this week--cecelia on time on wednesday from GA, and peter and link a day late from PA.
it's great to have them all back, we're a VERY crazy family when we get together. we woke up this morning to bacon, eggs, and KRINGLE from our uncle in Wisconsin, so that was really sweet. then, seeing as we didn't have family photo basically ALL year, my mom suggested that we take one in the snow. so i used my 10 sec timer on the camera and our trash can (it was the right height) to take this picture :-) think it turned out okay!
