A post Michael put onto Instagram:

“Last night my grandmother passed away. I am so happy and thankful that I was able to see her yesterday. It broke my heart hearing about what was happening to her from my dad but when I was there with her yesterday she seemed perfectly normal. I still remember when I was little that I would go to the store with her to be her helper since she loved to shop, a few times she would take me to toy’s R us and I would spend tons of time looking at the Lego then sometimes getting a small transformer. She also made the best Christmas layout ever under and around the tree. There would be a white bottom made from the cushion stuffing-stuff for snow. She would then have houses to put on it to make an entire village. It was always the coolest thing to see, even at my age I still can’t get over how cool it looked. She was married to my grandfather for 54 years. Rest in peace grandma, you’re in a better place now. Love you. 1937-2016”


Skiing and snowboarding

We went up to Wintergreen to try a bit of skiing and snowboarding. Max wanted skis and the rest of us tried snowboarding. Snowboarding was diffently harder than skis. We all survived with just a few bruises. Kaitlyn said she would try it again but Mark and I will go back to skis to keep up with Max. We also went snow tubing which was a lot of fun. Next time though we will only do one or the other or tubing before. All in all it was a great family day.
