276: Fantabulous Family Fun

88: Winter fun

(Grandpa and granddaughter.)

Today was absolutely wonderful.  We went sledding, ate too much, laughed tons, and had lots of fun with our family.  I’d tell you all about it but they’re upstairs waiting for me so we can play a game.

I hope your Sunday was a fabulous as mine.  🙂

I had a great weekend.  A big thanks to my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughters, and husband for that.

How about you?  Did you have a great weekend too?
