The Cabin in December

Last weekend we made a trip to the Soo. We were there to help my mom host the Annual David Mitchell Family Christmas dinner. This annual event has been held for at least 80 years and probably more. That is how many years my mother has attended. I have attended since I was born too but rarely make it to the dinner now that there is a 350 mile drive involved. Especially with the early December date. Road conditions can be very iffy this time of year.

Although our cabin was closed for the season in Sept., we made a visit to pick up my Clavinova for use at the dinner. A Clavinova is a electronic piano and I used it to accompany the Mitchells as we sang Christmas carols.

It was difficult to just stop by the cabin. We couldn't drive in the drive-in because of snow. We used the neighbor's driveway and trooped across several yards. It made us wish we could spend the winter there because it was so beautiful.

It was a beautiful sunny day. You can see there are no geese around anywhere!
