Merry Christmas everyone wherever you are! Wasn’t it bizarre to go to church on Christmas Eve in the pouring rain. Not my favourite, although Becky was jumping in the puddles of rain running down the main road and thinking it was very funny. Christmas morning was wonderful with lots of presents and laughing and 2 Dads trying to get the toys released from the ridiculous packages and put toys together.
We ended our great day having Christmas dinner with all of us and Alan and Caroline Dewart and Catie. What a treat for us to have them here for 2 seasons instead of just one! Our only sad bit was that Peggy is not with us. She went home to Taiwan to see her family as with her new job she will have no vacation for a year and the company closes only this week. We missed her very much but have been skyping so that is fun. We also skyped with the California crew and are very excited about seeing them in less than two weeks!!
The rain did eventually stop and we were still lucky enough to keep about half of our snow. Some of the road behind our house is very icy but once you get to the woods it is fine walking. Fun for the little ones as they don’t break through.
The sun came out today and we took full advantage. We used Tudor Hart driveway as a perfect place for 4 and 2 year old sledding!! here are some fun shots. The end of the year is soon upon us and we are having trouble imagining all that has gone on this year. So many pinch me – is it real – moments. We are feeling very blessed.
