December 24th, 25th and 26th - Our White Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their family and friends. I know that some of our plans were either cancelled or post poned due to the snow but hopefully everyone managed to celebrate despite our crazy weather. It was wonderful to have a white Christmas this year but I don't think any of us expected the amount of snow that we have had so far! Our car has been parked for days and we have pretty much been house bound except for venturing out in the neighbourhood on foot. We had to cancel our Christmas Eve tradition of visiting my sister-in-law because of the snow but were fortunate to have all our family make it down to our house on Christmas night. We all enjoyed a wonderful turkey dinner that everyone helped prepare, and a lovely evening together. We're really lucky to have everyone live so close to us. We were spoiled with gifts and our home looked so pretty in the soft glow of the candle light with our tree and all the holiday decorations. Being together is always the best gift of all.

My December 24th photo of the day is of the milk and cookies that Emily prepared for Santa. December 25th photo is of Emily's priceless expression upon receiving her new phone on Christmas morning and my December 26th photo of the day is of our advent calendar now completely full. Merry Christmas to all my friends and family.

And a wonderful time was had by all, as seen in the pictures.
I think the snow forced us all to slow down a bit, and realize what is important in life.
