Christmas Visitors

At the Botanical Garden in front of a sculpture made of wood.

Evelyn, Tom, Miriam, and Alice are visiting us for the holidays. We are almost in a bubble, but. not as much as last year! We all had plans for different travel than this, and it’s been a roller coaster of changing conditions — we’re glad that we ended up being able to get together. We aren’t going out much but we managed to visit our favorite local spot: the Matthaei Botanical Gardens.

Pizza Dinner

Eggs Benedict for Breakfast

Alice and Tom assembled the muffins, vegetables, eggs, and sauce.

Miriam and Evelyn poached the eggs.

You are blessed to be together! Not sure what's more impressive, Len's pizza throwing skills or your camera skills to catch him in the act. And those eggs do look perfect.

My sister and her husband were able to join me and our parents this year and my niece is coming today. It was nice to be able to gather with family this year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
