Your letters are so amusing! I do so enjoy receiving them,. I have never been to Alex and Suzanna's house, so I cannot make any reasonable judgements on it's degree of tidiness. Our house looks like a tornado passed through as Samantha is wall-papering the walls. The ones she has finished look adorable! So far she has finished the green parlor and is starting on the music room this afternoon. Oh Kirsten, you really should keep up your drawing! You are so talented! Perhaps you could join our lessons with senor Caravaggio! We have only had one so far but I would dearly love to have another one soon. We are not doing any painting yet, just sketching. That is really quite funny about Nancy's underskirt...hehe.
That is quite scary that Peder keeps disappearing! What if he wandered off into the woods and got hopelessly lost? Do say hello to the sweetheart fo me and give him a hug. How is your food stand faring? Are your crops cooperating?
