Me with my feet up waiting for Christmas Day.
Christmas Day has come and gone for another year.
We had a beautiful day it was! It was sunny and cold and the roads were bare for travelling.
We enjoyed a Skype visit with our daughter and son-in-law who are visiting in Australia for Christmas. They went from -27 deg. Celsius to +27 deg. Celsius in one day! They are 12 hours ahead of us and it's tomorrow there now. :)
Our son and his girlfriend came up for breakfast and to open gifts. At noon Murray's sister and brother-in-law and their dog came for Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful time.
We went to my niece's home in Sussex for my side of the family's Boxing Day gathering.
Thankfully it was a beautiful sunny day again for travelling as we all came quite a distance.
There were 22 of us there but you will notice I'm not in any of the pictures as I took them. And if you count correctly you will see one other is missing. My brother arrived quite late and I forgot to take his picture!
Even though our daughter and her family are so far away this year, I must say it was a very enjoyable Christmas with our family.
Today we went to town for the Boxing Day sales.
The stores and mall were packed with people and the parking lots and streets were crazy!
(Or maybe we were crazy!)
We had fun though.
And found some bargains too. :)
We are having another snowstorm here tonight.
A blizzard actually.
It's snowing and blowing with about 25 - 30 cm of snow expected by the time it's all over.
I'm thankful for our cozy house and that we don't have to be out in the weather on the roads.
Tomorrow we'll be shovelling out again and I suppose I might take some more pictures.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed time with family and friends.
Are you still enjoying celebrating the holidays?
Blessings to you,
