Chris Came Home

This Christmas my son who lives in Toronto came home with his girlfriend Umbreen. They arrived a week before Christmas so we had a great time driving around and showing Umbreen beautiful Newfoundland.

To get a real North Atlantic experience they decided to spend a night at The Beach House .
Here is what they saw out of their floor to ceiling windows

We also visited Signal Hill

As you can imagine it was very cold!

Every Year we have Indian food for our Christmas Dinner. We order from a local restaurant on Christmas Eve. This year they could not take our order so Chris with the assistance of the rest of us made Christmas Dinner and it was delicious!!!

We spent the rest of Christmas relaxing and recovering from colds. They left on Dec. 27. I am missing them but we will be in Toronto in May for Chris's 30th Birthday!

How was your Christmas did everything go on as Schedule?

Take Care

My Christmas Tree

If Our Tree Could Talk from Natalie's Blog. I thought I would show you my tree and all the ornaments that are important to me.

We now have an artificial tree. When Michelle passed away we changed our tradition of cutting down a tree and bought an artificial one. 

The angel is a little heavy so depending on the angle you look at the tree she is tipping. But I due like having an angel on the tree. It is Michelle looking down on us. 

The Ornaments I love the most are the ones the children made when they were young.

Christmas Stocking made of felt

Small Wreath decorated
These ornaments give me so many great memories. I get "Oh Mom" when I put them on.

This picture was the last picture taken of the three of them at Sears.

Bay Socks knitted by my Sisters Mother-in Law

I have some fancy ornaments but theses few are the ones that talk to me.

Does your tree talk to you? Is there any special ornaments on your tree that are precious to you?

Merry Christmas!
