  • Christmas 2008 photos

    Lila, Eva and I spent a week up at my parents’ house in Chassell, MI. We had a great time! Snow fell continually, except for a beautiful blue sky on Christmas morning. Eva came down with a cold, so we did not spend much time outside. We did do a little sledding though. Here are…
