A Very Merry Christmas 2009

I'm sitting in front of a window with a beautiful view. Oh my. There's nowhere like it. Sigh.

We had a wonderful day of travel. I think the key is to remind yourself that anything that can go wrong will go wrong--then when it does, you're ready. Well, nothing went wrong! Boom, into Dallas just before the storm hit there, straight on to Calgary, a car was waiting for us and drove us to Lake Louise.

Great room with a view. Oy.

We went down to the pub, had a few drinks and warmth and then off to dinner.

Fondue for four. Yum.

Does it get any better? I don't think so.

Afterwards, a walk outside on the lake.

And then a little caroling and hot cocoa by the big Christmas tree.

We were all beat, but the kid got our little "Christmas tree in a box" put together.

We watchted, a Wonderful Life and fell asleep.

Awoke to such a clatter, Father Christmas had arrived! These were on our door this morning.

The boys' goodies.

We had brunch this morning, oh my.

This shot is for Saucy! Love you!

The boys needed to walk and got all geared up to do so.

I stayed here to blog and let them go. Wave to the boys down there.

I also have some garland to make! But, I'm about ready to walk around myself.

It's just breathtaking here. Having the family all together is a blessing. I am missing mom though. I did, however, tell her to give me a sign while we were flying here. I saw a beautiful natural heart shape in the snow a little while later. I know she is with us. And I'm so happy for that.

Ho ho ho. Hope your Christmas day is full of love and happiness. Blessings to all.
