Hi all, hope you all had a marvellous Christmas. Ours was quiet and stress free, just hubby, the girls and I for the first time in our lives, the reason being my sister-in-law was flying in from Vancouver yesterday (the 26th), so we are doing the big family dinner tonight. It makes Christmas last longer, don't you think?
We went to early mass on Christmas eve, then we drove around town to see the Christmas lights, one of our traditions. We then picked up Chinese food to eat while watching what else, A Christmas Story of course! This is not a tradition, but it was so much fun I think it might become one.

Tonight will be a turkey dinner at our house with hubby's family. On the week-end, we'll be getting together with our best friends to go out for dinner and see Les Misérables, which I cannot, cannot wait to see!

|I just love this view.|
