Our middle daughter and our granddaughters arrived late this afternoon safe, sound and tired from their long flight from London, England with only slight delays but nothing like during last year's snowstorms. How excited we all were to see each other but soon after a barely eaten dinner, they went to bed early. The girls' daddy will be coming on Monday.
Youngest daughter had her last day of work today until the new year so now begins the countdown with all the baking to be done with many helping hands. First I need to restock the pantry! The house is prettied up, just the main tree still to do and just a couple of gifts still to buy, as well as the ham, the bird and vegetables closer to the big days.
Hope you are all enjoying the holiday preparations. We wish a safe journey to all travellers including our eldest daughter and partner heading out to Calgary for a few days. They will be joining us on Boxing Day. My holiday card and wishes will come next week!
