The Michigan Nelsons gathered in Mackinaw City at the beach of their Lake Michigan Cottage,Cobble Beach. The Lord supplied a nice amount of lake effect snow,a fallen tree,winter like weather,and gifts from wonderful neighbors. We were 6 adults,5children,and 4 dogs strong.The men chopped and stacked the fallen wood,the dogs ran the beach and into the fridgid cold lake,the kids played with their new gifts,the women cooked,ate,and read while the wood stove burned and crackeled. Christmas music played in every room. We talked to distant family and friends and had a GREAT TIME!
