Left on a Jet Plane

Holly, Dan, and our Peas are in Alberta.
We had an awesome Christmas.
The whole fam damily were here for Christmas morning.
Pics to follow.

But this morning we were up at 5 and out of the house by 6:15.
We had a major snow storm last night but we managed to limp to the airport with time to spare.
"Time to spare"----
 yup more time for the knots in my stomach to quadruple but more time for hugs and kisses!

Siobhan and Will came to say their good byes too.
Will left to go to work and we took Sio home after
we watched their plane take off.
It is going to be a very quiet few days!

Starting to look more like Christmas

 Looking forward to spending a First Christmas with our Peas!

 The Family room Christmas tree.
A real one was discussed but with so much happening in the family this year we dragged out the unreal one! It certainly does the job.
 Got a new front door just in time for the season.
Isn't it nice?
 Our snowman family say
"Merry Christmas"
 My kitchen angel!
A silly tradition we have is that a candy cane stay up all year hanging from one the cabinet doors in the family room.
The next Christmas it changes doors.
It all began with a real candy cane that just did not get put away and we just left it there til the following Christmas.
Been doing it for quite a number of years.
It is now a wooden one!
Anyone else have silly traditions?

Have Not Fallen Off the Face of the Earth

So a whole lot has been happening around here the last few weeks.
Daughter Holly, son in law Dan, our peas Miles and Riley are heading to Camrose.
They have a lovely looking house in the town and it looks like it will be a wonderful spot to raise the peas for a bit.
Dan left November 26th for his start date of November 28th.
Originally Holly, the peas and Nona were going to go the weekend after to set up house.
Then they were heading to CP for Christmas. After some long talks we all decided it was financially extravagent.
On a personal note I put a lot into the holiday season and if I was in Camrose til the middle of December ---- well I just would not have been able to get things done

Iain came home from a trip to Korea and 2 days later headed to Camrose with "Youngblood" (Holly's car). He did this to save H and D the $1300.00 the movers were going to charge them.

Our town had its annual Christmas parade on November 26th. As for the past few years it was at 5 o'clock. We bundled the peas and made ourselves some hot buttered rum and headed to the parade, Aunty Siobhan and Uncle Will came along too. Miles did not like the sirens and lound music , Riley tolerated it all.

I am feeling pretty good about getting the house prepped . The inside is slowly looking like the season. Don't have the outside lights up yet but that is up to my guy to do.
We got a new front door too and it looks amazing! I am very thrilled about it.
Planning some baking next week. Riley likes helping Nona in the kitchen!
