Life is pretty sweet in Ripon right now. My family has mounds of snow and now we’re patiently waiting for prime rib and fresh baked bread for our Christmas feast. Breezy joined the parents for my pick-up trip to Milwaukee airport on Sunday afternoon, and it’s been non-stop family bonding ever since. Yesterday we went to my Grandma’s, where we saw more of the Nielsen clan than I’d seen in years. After that, back to Ripon to celebrate with my aunt. Happy family!
