Week leading to Christmas...

Sorry if you think there are way too many photos in this post but I think the best way to show you what we did the week leading to Christmas is with pictures plus I love reading other blog posts with a lot of pictures so here we go...

Christmas Eve 2011 - Dave and I with the two loves of our lives.

And here are those two lovelies again.

Mr. Puss chillaxin while we opened our gifts on Christmas Eve.

Our traditional Christmas Eve lobster supper.

This year the kids and Dave had a family game night on Christmas Eve eve. But before getting out the board games we had....

... a deep fried turkey and homemade curly fries supper. Luc and I watching over the frying turkey.

We ended up having a white christmas after all.

Tree with unopened gifts.

Antique balls hanging in the window. This is a neat idea I got from this fabulous blogger friend.

Another antique... how cute is this nut cracker.

Of course there was lots and lots of baking during the week.

And coffee drinking. I've collected 6 of these cute mugs. Luc mentioned that we'll need a sippy cup for next year. We are all so excited and looking forward to Noël 2012 with Ginette and André's baby.

And to end the holidays Dave and I spent Christmas Day, Boxing Day and the day after in hospitals. Dave fell and broke his left wrist for the second time in 8 weeks. Yes, same bone, same wrist. He needed surgery. He has 6 fixation pins in his wrist.

I hope 2012 will start better than 2011 ended but heck, it could be worst.

Oh, Vicki! I'm so sorry to hear about Dave's wrist. I hope he's healing okay and it's not too painful. I love your ornaments in the window, and that nutcracker is AWESOME. Take care, and happy new year!
