Holiday Recap

We hope everyone had a relaxing, enjoyable Christmas filled with love, laughter, friends and family.

The new house called for new traditions along with hosting family dinners. In fact we had both sides of the family over for a holiday dinner. We have had family over for dinner in the past but this time it was in our new home, cooking on our 1950's stove and accommodating 8-11 people in our dining room. Everything went well and we are happy to have our first holiday season of entertaining guests under our belts.

Christmas Table ~Take 1.

Our first gathering was on Christmas Eve eve with D's family. We were able to fit 11 people, with room to spare in our dining room, which I thought was quite an accomplishment. D prepared dinner with me nervously standing around pretending like I knew what was going on, every time he left the kitchen area to show a newly arrived guest around the house. I have to be honest and tell you I have only turned on our stove a handful of times since being in the house! Cooking is definitely D's department.


My parents came to stay the night on Christmas Eve. It was an enjoyable evening of taking a wintery stroll, preparing last minute presents and all sitting down to watch the movie 'Elf'. My Mum took over cooking Christmas dinner and I did my part by cleaning up and washing dishes through out the day.

All in all our holidays were filled with snow...


Cozy days at home.....
(we painted our dining grey a few days before Xmas)


Being spoiled with gifts.....


Watching our kitty mess up the tree skirt a few times a day.....


It's a good job she is so cute....


And taking the time to be a couch potato here and there.....


And we are already looking forward to doing it all again next year.

Happy 2013....May your year be filled with silliness, love and new adventures!
