Our christmas today














dear friends i hope you are all well rested and ready for the new year i sure am, but before i can do that I must celebrate christmas and today is the day. it seems that our poor little grace(newfie puppy) was ill and we decided to spend the time with her during the holiday, so that meant no christmas in montreal- but montreal came to us on sunday and we are all ready to go, house decorated, gifts wrapped, treats in the fridge, cupboards and cookie jars and little hands and giggles all over the house!! tomorrow we will celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of the new one with seven children and no adults oh my! we decided to have a kids fest here!!! like i said oh my:)

Oooh...lots of kids = lots of laughs! And maybe, just maybe, a bit of a mess to clean up :)

P.S. I see paper doilies! And I love them!

I have a feeling it will be more fun with all the children...for they will live the moment for what it truly is...here is a sweet new year to you and your family. Beth
