Thank you so much for your speedy reply. Yes, all has been resolved since I wrote last. The Nutcracker has forced Edward to take an entire month off his job, and while we have not all yet been able to take a family dinner, I’m sure there will be plenty of those this yuletide.
We just returned from the Nutcracker today. All of the people in our family are in the ballet, so it’s been a while since we were all here at the house together. We’re getting ready for our yuletide celebration as I write.
The lassies are in the front room working out a little performance for Edward and I. It’s a new tradition that I hope we can keep going. ‘Tis such a lovely way for all of them to work together.
What is the yule season for thee? What traditions does your family go through on this happy night of nights? I know that this letter will most likely not reach you until after the season, but my curiosity will be just as sincere then, I assure thee. And oh! Aye, what news your last letter has brought me! A new infant! And when? For you must be sure to see Edward for his advice. He is an expert in these matters and could help you with the process considerably.
Best of Greetings! Lily Merriman
