Our Christmas consisted of driving to another province and spending time with my Grammie along with everyone else in the family -- a rare occurrence that was her Christmas wish last year -- and then driving back home on Christmas Day to spend some time with my husband's family. It was a whirlwind adventure, but it was so very lovely.
I had some precious moments with my Grammie reminiscing about my Grandad -- who had passed away 20 years previously around Christmas -- and her years with him. I've mentioned this before, but they really had a marriage made for a fairy tale, and she confirmed it that day. Other people had seen it too, as someone told her that she was "cherished by him."
As we made our way back home, there was some incredibly beautiful scenery just outside our windows. It was a bit cloudy for part of the drive, and it helped create some really dreamy photographs -- I wish I could share them all -- with the frost and heavy snow on the trees. Breathtaking.
A delicious turkey dinner was ready for us when we arrived at my in-law's, and my husband's Grandma was also there for a visit. Little Boy had a lot of fun playing with his new toys and games, and had us quite competitive with his new game called The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game -- it's still a favourite even after a couple of weeks.
How was your Christmas?
