Back To Our Roots, Again

Add one more year on the family tradition of Edelweiss on (or at least the same week of) Christmas Eve. Every family has their particular, unique, and special traditions. The one that keeps going for us is dinner at the local authentic German restaurant Edelweiss.

Not only does the dinner get as many of the immediate and extended family together to finish off the year, but it helps all of us to remember where our family started and to reinforce our German roots.

From what the family can remember, we have been doing this for almost 30 years. Family members have come and gone, but they are always remembered and missed at the dinner.

Same incredibly cool owner (Bernardt), same good food, same good dark beer - and most importantly the same chicken dance, year after year.

Cheers to all the Wheat's, Chambers and all other families that made and missed the dinner.
