This weekend is one of my favorite winter weekends of the year... for years, the whole family...Moores, Plaintes, Weavers, and now Reils and Fiebigs... head up to our grandparents house located on Lake Michigan to celebrate our Christmas together! With it being a tourist area, its hard to really appreciate its quaintness! But at this time of the year, you feel like you have the area all to yourselves... even the locals seem to have gone to warmer ground! It is so peaceful! You can walk on the beach and there be no sign of people... with them living on a private drive, a lot of times there isn't many people on the beach anyways! The whole weekend is sort of planned out even though its not anything that anyone besides my family would probably think is exciting!
