  1. I love it when Adrian and Hans go on “manly errands” too :-). They’re taking my car to the oil change place this coming Saturday so Gretchen and I get a girl shopping trip to the health food store :-).

  2. Oh, did you get snow too? We’ve got quite a bit and love it!
    I like it when my brothers bake cookies. 🙂
    How wonderful that your parents came/are coming to visit!
    A double wedding? I’ve often thought that my sister and I should do that someday if it would be convenient =D
