Dear Mother & Daddy,
"Our house looks like Christmas had hit it. We put the tree up last Monday night and it is pretty.
Of course, we unpacked all the decorations but I haven't had time to really arrange any of them so things are just piled around. The mantle is a mess and the dining table is just as bad. I haven't been home long enough to do anything.
Went downtown two days and got most of my shopping finished. The weather was nice so I wanted to do it while I could.
B was in Peoria all day Thurs. and that night too so I had to get a sitter to stay with the kids. It was sort of a hectic day.
I have mailed most of my cards but have a few to do yet.
I have to help with a tea tomorrow afternoon and then help Faith with another one Mon. afternoon. Besides that I am invited to a tea, a coffee, have a Brownie Xmas party, give a talk to the High School Home Ec. Club and go to the kids' Xmas program at school all between now and next Friday. Do you think I'll make it? I forgot about our Potluck Christmas party which is tomorrow night.

Hope you all are fine."
Lots of love,
