Elisabeth and Robert ended up in charge of the traditional fried potato pancake dinner, which was made in the garage with much trial and error. Elisabeth took on preparations for the herring salad for Christmas Eve. It was agreed the efforts would make Therese proud!
The big gifts (of the purchased variety) this year were Grant's new laptop and a flatscreen LED TV for the family room.
