Christmas 2010

''Christmas'' around here is celebrated on the 24th. It's always been that way. When the kids were young the 25th was spent playing with toys. Now it's pretty much a quiet, slow day with just Dave and I (Ginette travel's back to New Brunwick on Christmas day and Luc spend's the day with his fiancé's family). But all that is okey with me because my special day is Christmas Eve.

As with most families we have traditions. One being that Luc opens the candies and nuts in the afternoon of Christmas Eve.

Insence burner I made for my daughter at pottery class.

I say it every year ''that it was the best Christmas yet'' but this year I can't quite put my finger on what it is but it was a very special Christmas. The four of us were together most of the day of the 24th. I got to spend an entire week with my lovely daughter - that in itself was a gift. Although I miss her like crazy after she leaves.

Thanks Dave for the teapot. I already tested it with a nice flowering tea.

Cute tree ornament.

You all know what big fans of the movie Christmas Vacation we are; right ! Well look what our daughter wrapped up for us - a replica (tree ornament) of the house and when you press on a small button everything lights up. Clark is standing in front of the house with the extension cords...

I got a juicer; thanks Dave.

Ginette and Luc had this blanket printed out for me. I love those two with all my heart !

There is one more gift I want to show you but I have to get it assembled first... maybe tomorrow.
