Dear Mother & Daddy,
"It's snappy today. It was 3 below when we got up but the temp. is going up a tiny bit now that the sun is out. B has taken the children to Bloomington for the day--or a big part of it anyway. They wanted to do some shopping and I am invited to a luncheon so he's going to let them eat downtown, too. They may come home with the Xmas tree.
B and I were hosts for a church supper last night. He helped me fix the tables at noon yesterday and then I set the dishes on by myself. We took bread and butter and made the coffee. The rest was pot luck. Bob didn't go with us because it was Bruce's birthday and he went home with him for supper.
I got overtired so spent Thursday in bed. My throat was sore that morning and I couldn't stay up. I'm all right now but a little wobbly. I missed a band program at school that Bob was in and the Quill club Xmas party but simply couldn't stay up.

My party Wed. night was real nice. We each told about a Xmas family custom or a Christmas idea. It was fun. That was all the program.
We still plan to come home on Dec. 23 so I probably won't write again before then. It depends upon the weather how early we start so I have no idea when we'll get there.
Thanks for reading another year of letters!
