We're just coming back from family time up at Lake Donner, near Lake Tahoe.  A friend made a mountain home overlooking the lake available to me and my kids.  We've been skiing and boarding and watching holiday movies, from It's a Wonderful Life to Mixed Nuts. Another friend sent this...

This is a picture of my great great grandmother, Esther Hellman, and her daughter Clara Hellman Heller, relaxing on the porch of their summer home, Pine Lodge. You can't see it, but they are looking out at a magnificent view of Lake Tahoe. They look so relaxed here, sitting on wicker furniture in...
