For the last several years our family has been going up for Christmas Camp at Point. Scott and I were fortunate enough to go up for the weekend. It is always a great time spent with family and friends and I love getting out of Chicago for something completely different.
This picture of Gwen reminds me a little bit of the kid in A Christmas Story.

Our cabin that we stayed in with the rest of my family as well as the Erik Strom family and the Bassetts.

Scott showing me his hockey skills. He played in High School.

Our cabin broomball team. Go Pine Nuts!

Here are some pictures from our last big snowfall in Chicago a couple days ago. They are pre-slush pictures when everything still looks beautiful.

Caramel Anyone???

Last year I started making candy as my Christmas present for my Grandparents and my Aunt and Uncles. This year I made 3 kinds of caramels; plain, with pecans and with walnuts. They were delicious!

It has always been a tradition to go out to tea at the Drake downtown with my Grandma and cousins but in the past few years all the Wallgren ladies have been going together the day after Christmas. This is one of my favorite things that I do during the Christmas season.
