Missed Christmas 2020? Missed birthdays? Missed graduation? We celebrated all of these a couple weeks ago when our family got together for a fun weekend.
My daughter and I put out a few Christmas decorations on the deck and strung lights between the doors and around the railing.Christmas morning breakfast included homemade waffles, fruit salad, bagels and cream cheese, and an egg/sausage/bread/milk/cheese casserole that I've been making every year since at least 1985!
This spring, my oldest granddaughter asked if she could have one of my quilts and fell in love with Flying Geese--a quilt I made for my in-laws in 1977. Interesting how 70s things are back in style :) But she also wanted to make sure her siblings weren't left out and asked, "Grandma, can they also choose a quilt?"
My grandson liked Broken Dishes.
After opening presents, we went to Mt. Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid . . .
. . . where the kids went on the new Cliffside Coaster which is next to the old 1932 and 1980 Olympic Bobsled Track. Then we all came back to the house for a late lunch/early dinner of Adirondack Gourmet sandwiches and salad that I ordered from a shop in Lake Placid. No cooking this Christmas Day! Yay!
All in all it was a wonderful weekend!
See you next week with my monthly mini.
