It's hard to believe but it's already into the second week of 2009! The new year always comes up so fast, just being a week after Christmas. I've been trying to write this blog post for the past week and am altering out all the "dated" bits. One of my New Years "plans" (not using resolution) is to try to blog more often. So, the Christmas lowdown....

Jason & I celebrated early with lots of holiday munchies, Christmas movies (Elf and my favourite, Christmas Vacation) and of course, presents! I got a new camera - which I'm still trying to figure out! It's a digital SLR so I'm taking a class at Henry's today and hopefully will be posting some cool shots on here.

On the 23rd I headed over to Sue's for our (now) annual tradition of me helping her wrap gifts :) She hates wrapping and I love it. Works out well! In the evening we had our office potluck. It's always a good time with yummy food and a nice time for co-workers to just chill out for the night.

I spent Christmas Eve with my sister Jo-Anne & her family. Liam was in bed when I got there but Jesse was still up and pretty excited! Nick lit a fire in the fireplace and we had some munchies while we opened our stockings. I stayed the night there and woke up (EARLY!!) Christmas morning to 2 excited little boys. After opening gifts there, I headed out to the farm.

Once everyone gets together it gets a little crazy, but fun. Mom had an awesome dinner for us and then more gift unwrapping! I took my wii with me so it was fun for adults & kids to play together.

I stayed for a couple of days at Mom & Dad's and got to see Amy & Pat along with Elliott and brand new Milo, Karla Ann & Beck and Carla Raes, a trip to Tim Horton's with Grammie and a really nice lunch of salmon sandwiches with Aunt Peggy.

Although, I have to admit, it was nice to get home to my own bed after nearly a week of not!
