Michigander

Leah,

You make me laugh. Thanks for inviting me to your blog. I will continue to check it.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful, snowy Christmas. Wish it would snow here!!! My whole family will be here though.

Love to you and Nick,
Your cousin Kristin

I'll make a snowman for you! BTW, do you remember when you tricked me and Melissa into drinking orange juice laced with pickle juice?
