Dear Daddy – Another bright sunny day, but cold. There was a heavy frost this morning. It seems odd not to have snow on the ground after having so much all winter. We have all had our pictures taken and John and I had to have a second made. I have the proofs of the ones we didn’t like – John said we should send them to you and tell you not to let this happen to you. They were pretty bad but the others were good. Will try to send them out next week – they aren’t ready yet. We went to Sheldon yesterday and got some meat. It was a nice day to drive. I think it is a little cold to take the baby out in a buggy but the car is warm. Don’t think I am trying to make a sissy out of him but am of the opinion too cold air won’t do him any good. Hope to make up for this staying in, in the spring. I haven’t seen the Johnson baby yet but hope to this week. My sinus condition is better. I didn’t want to go around a new baby with a drippy nose but I am past that stage now. Just some drainage once in a while and that drop into my throat. Mark had a little cold and I gave him the oral vaccine as you directed. Kept him home from school one day. His teacher said the room was cold Monday (due to a north wind) – that she got a cold from it herself. He is as full of pep as ever. John and Mark just came home for lunch – both very hungry and clamoring for food. David woke up and I had to take him up to see if he needed anything.

Love – Mother
