Christmas has come and gone

I hope that everyone reading had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. We started the season on the evening of the 23rd, my last day of work until the 4th of January (a much needed break on my part....) when I stopped for the last minute items we were missing and a run to the LCBO. Christmas Eve was spent with my inlaws, we all attended the family service at St Luke's Church (a video in the church from 2010 for the Silent Night Project) - Cameron had a part in the service as the "older" angel and Caleb was a giraffe in the manager scene. Then DH treated us to a wonderful roast beef dinner including the Reverend and his wife and children. Rev. John is a huge part of why Cameron LOVES going to church - he is young (37) and when the minister wears jeans to service it really puts the younger generations at ease. John had another service to attend in a nearby community so he was only able to eat and run but his wife and children stayed until just after 9pm - watching Santa on NORAD Santa Tracker and just enjoying the season with us.

Our Christmas Tree 2010

Christmas morning, we had some excited boys...
We were home most of the morning and then spent the rest of Christmas Day with the inlaws.
Boxing Day and the 27th were with my family.
Today we took down the tree and tried to get the house "back in order". We have friends coming tomorrow for a visit as well as Dani and Todd coming for our traditional New Years Celebration on Friday. I did get a litte baking done before the are my "christmas trees" before they were devoured.
If you are looking for the cookie cutters that I used, you can find them here....Page 48 of the Regal Christmas Catalogue - next time I will bake twice as many cookies for one tree.
So, our time has been very busy but wonderful to be with our family and friends, we feel truly blessed and look forward to wonderful things in 2011.
And stayed tuned, I'm working on a final happy dance for 2010!
