What a weekend!

 What a weekend! Don and I drove up to Central California...to have some family time and do our taxes...we fondly call every President's Day weekend...Tax Weekend...we all get together...eat and drink way too much...play board games...this year the kids put on a play...take walks along the St. John River...eat and drink even more...stay up way too late...and my SIL does our taxes...she owns her own firm...we are lucky that way!   Here is a couple of the cheesecakes that a friend who joins us made this year...this one is apple crumb...
 This one is lemon...he makes them from scratch...the New York style...he is from New York originally...these were awesome...the lemon was my favorite...the best cheese cake I've ever had...don't get me wrong...the apple was fantastic...but the lemon was perfect...and light...or as light as cheese cake can be!
We took a group picture...Don and 3 of his brother and one sister are in the picture and I bet you can pick them out...and Tim...who made the cheese cakes...is even starting to look a bit like them! Christopher was napping...he is 4 and was very tired...
Of course you can see all the wine glasses...there was a LOT of wine consumed this weekend!!
Don and I got home yesterday late afternoon...got up this morning for our first day of school...boy the alarm ran early! I am used to sleeping later than 6:30 since Don retired...not any more...at least not on Tuesdays and Thursdays! 
It was warm when we left for the weekend and came home to cold, rainy weather...a great day to sew!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Well, this is a first for me. A family get-together to do taxes! You really can create a party around anything if you just add a little wine and good food! That lemon cheesecake...to die for!
