merry "lake house" christmas

Thanks Nonna and D for a wonderful Christmas weekend.
Nonna and D in the kitchen, where they stayed a lot!
Christmas dinner was mixed salad greens with melon & prosciutto, beef tenderloin, ravioli, spinach madeline, and yeast rolls.
Saturday afternoon we opened presents. Carly was excited over Harry Potter movies, games, scrapbook kit, peace sign necklace, Ugg-type boots, books.
We got to spend some time with cousin JC. Carly helping Nonna in the kitchen. Carly was learning to make one of her favorite things - Bearnaise sauce. First lesson: learning to separate an egg. Gabby {and I} enjoyed basking in front of the roaring fire!

I have never made a Bearnaise sauce, so Carly is way ahead of me!
