We returned from a week spent with family in frigid Wausau, Wisconsin Sunday night. I am the oldest of five children so a holiday together all nine of us with the son-in-laws, is not something to be taken for granted anymore. We had a beautiful week! My mom has a way of making holidays magical, even for those of us in our twenties. We drank coffee out of special Christmas mugs, frosted cookies, completed a 2000-piece puzzle, ate like kings, and played in freshly fallen snow on several winter walks like this one to the quarry. And best of all, I learned how to knit (a necessary skill if sheep are in our future)! I think we all agreed that this was one of our favorite visits yet.
