|Making chicken soup|
And as a bonus, Noel's daughter Lisa brought our new little grandson, Luca.
|Champagne poached salmon with vanilla sauce...yum!!!|
We prepared and ate tons of food, Aubrey made a cake that took hours of work and was sprinkled with lots of love, Kylene cooked some kick-ass chicken soup and we even had a wine-tasting (the bottle of wine cost more than fifteen whole dollars!)
|Pumpkin brandy cake|
As you can see, Aubrey and I practiced using our new cameras.

Games were played, books were read, hands were warmed by the fire and the sound of laughter and children's squeals of delight rose to the rafters.
