Beth has been making Christmas tree coffee cakes for a number of years – it’s our family tradition to enjoy this delicacy on Christmas morning, and despite a very full schedule this year, she managed to deliver the goods yet once again (which we greatly enjoyed!). She always makes a few extra to give away to our neighbors (one of whom emailed back that their tree had undergone a bit of “pruning” that evening).
Another family tradition is going to the Geneseo, IL Christmas Walk. Chad and Tyler have played along with Chad’s former violin teacher’s students for a number of years. Only Tyler played this year (he’s in the far left corner by the wall).
We also enjoyed a traditional dinner at Victorian Manor.
