Checking in from my sister's in Minster. Yes, the pond is frozen, but I had to pass along the following anecdote:
My sister was bringing down exchange gifts for today's get together. Her daughter (and my Goddaughter) saw her bringing them down: "Ooh, goody, I want presents!" she enthusiastically tells her mother.
Sister replies: "But you have to wait for Uncle Kyle to bring your present."
Goddaughter: "But mom, I don't like Uncle Kyle!"
That's it, she's out of my will!
