This weekend’s theme – your Christmas stories
We had a really nice Christmas.
A few from my family met up at my sister’s on Christmas eve afternoon,

then some head to our church for the amazing evening service. As usual, the service was power packed with the most amazing music. I did another photo shoot and was quite pleased with the outcome despite such low light. Thank-you manual settings!
Then we head back to our place for a nice leisurely visit in front of the fireplace.
The food was absolutely abundant! Every square inch of the countertops were stuffed with everything imaginable. We’ve been picking at the leftovers all week. 🙂 We visited with those we haven’t seen in far too long and made some new friends along the way as well. It was a really nice evening.
On Christmas morning, we head to our friend’s for an amazing Christmas turkey lunch. I love watching others’ traditions. Do them enough times and they sort of become your own as well. As kids we didn’t have those cracker package things, but at this home they do and it’s always fun to see what colour paper crown you land with. 🙂
The next day, we laid pretty low. Naps, too much eating, drinking coffee as fluently as breathing air, watching movies, reading magazines… whatever!
And then we started to get a little more productive but not by much. Doctor visits, picking up passport papers to fill out, going to the movies, getting the truck checked out, signing up for cadets, learning new computer software, hitting Starbucks… a real mixed bag of work and pleasure.
I really haven’t felt like blogging this week. Three drafts and not even one of them got posted. Nothing spoke to me except living life and working out some big decisions I’ll share with you soon.
In a nutshell, we enjoyed our season very much. Thank-you so much for your generous friendship and support for everything you see on this blog. I honestly have NO idea what I’d do without such a passionate group. You are just the best!
Here’s to a wonderful New Year and may many new dreams come true for you!
