Christmas 2010

Christmas Eve Dinner...grilled salmon with bearnaise, three cheese spinach risotto, glazed carrots.


We had planned to go to Chicago for Christmas, but woke up on Christmas Eve
to seven inches of snow, so we decided to postpone and open gifts instead.

The girls got loads of art supplies









and the "big" gifts....a mini HP for Margaret and an ipod touch for Mary Emma.
Very happy girls!

Sledding at Frontenac

Frontenac State Park has an amazing sliding hill


It is all groomed.


Heck of a hike to the top!



Bathtub sled!



That is Brenda down there at the bottom






You can see the Mississippi from the top.
