Christmas and Camrose

So Christmas has come and gone.
Is it really almost the end of January?
It was a crazy Christmas.
Not sure I liked it too much.
One of my girls is 2000 miles away in Alberta with my g kids and
my newly married girl wanted to spend the morning with her hubby (GO figure?)
HB and I had a lovely morning having breakfast in bed, opening our gifts, playing with the cats, skyping with the g kids, and watching some Christmas movies.

Then it was time to get ready to go to Siobhan and Will's for dinner.

Don't get me wrong. It was an enjoyable day just different.
We stayed overnight and came home the next afternoon.
HB is the organizer/coordinator of our local Christmas bird count so off he went bright and early on the 27th.
I stayed home this year and did the backyard count along with de Christmasing the house and organising for going away.
Yup we left on the 30th for two weeks in Alberta.
This time we flew.
Check these links if you want to read about our driving adventure last year.
Now you know why we flew this time!
Arrived in Camrose around lunch time.
My heart melted as we came in the door and we got two huge smiles from Miles and Riley.
Have I mentioned that I love these two?
These are the little vests that I knitted for them.

We had another Christmas, did lots of reading, building, racing cars, colouring, cuddling.

WHAT!!!! Its time to go home???
So here we are back home. Deep Deep in a freeze.
You know. That hairs in your nose freeze kinda freeze.
Hope you all are keeping cosy.

It looks like you had a good time so that's all that counts. Your Grands are so cute!

What a lovely holiday you had. It did come and go so it has done in the last several years. What happened to just being able to enjoy the moments! Those grands are adorable, by the way, XOXO

I know what you mean by having a different Christmas. It is that way when the children leave home isn't it? Especially if they move as far away. Sounds like you really had a good one in spite of it all. Love those two grandbabies of yours - they are so adorable.
