After three months of negotiating - THREE MONTHS - we managed to decide on spending 5 days at my hubby's parents place for Christmas and then have my parents and brother/wife come to our house for "Christmas" over New Years.
Holiday negotiating involves multiple phone calls between me, my parents, and my brother.....and occasionally the other two families we call in-laws. Let me clarify that hubs and I had everything alllllll figured out 'til my brother went and got married last year. Somehow things are much more complicated now. Lord willing, we'll be able to settle into some sort of "holiday schedule" SOON!
Ok that said, our Christmas holidays went really well. We spent 5 days in beautiful Grand Forks, BC. Not North Dakota. B.C. Hubs and I both grew up there so it's always nice to go home and see some old faces and places. We did some ice fishing, and snowboarding and watching movies in front of the fire.
|This is how I ice fish..... Sometimes I sit down..but then I fall asleep. So standing is better.|
Santa was good to me this year:
|All I need now is #16 on the back of this baby and I'm set! (That's Trevor Linden for the record)|
|Read it and weep ladies. I am the proud new owner of this beautiful new KitchenAid Mixer!|
