Ah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same

Out of a thousand invitations you received . . .”

Or maybe you’ll be like me—cozy at home with a good book.  (My husband will
have the pipe!)

    How much fun!!! I love reading this and looking at all the pictures, even the little music notes are cute. The two little people are really getting around town, and how nice they look in stunning red and top hat! Love following them on their adventure, even to the library for a good mystery. Happy New Year to them, and you, and all!
