Drove to Sparta, MI from the U.P. No snow here in snow country. White out conditions from the Mackinac to my brother's home downstate. Aman Family Christmas get together. Fun and games were had by all. We played Golf, Ten Grand, the kids played Pit and Spoons. Way too rough for the Olders. The food was delish, the cookies and apple pies amazing. Really. Our kids kids slid down the same carpeted stairs as they had years ago. Same fun different children. I made family calendars as usual. We played a gift exchange game. The Youngers opened presents with glee! I love spending time with my brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, greats, seconds and in-laws. We are a warm and loving bunch.
