This girl went home for the holidays!
I'm not sure excited was the word for it ecstatic might have been better. I knew last year when I spent Christmas in Australia that it just wasn't the same as a Canadian Christmas. There still wasn't snow this year, not for lack of praying on my part. But there was the most important thing, family.
I jumped right into it, I was able to dress up and attend a huge family gathering that we have every year.
I was able to see my first live hockey game in over a year, Finland vs. Russia in the World Juniors.
I snuggled with this guy, lots and lots
I welcomed Santa to our house and enjoyed gifting presents with my family, some of whom used hockey socks as stockings when they couldn't find their own.
I watched old movies, like our traditional National Lampoon Christmas Vacation.
I enjoyed our hot tub on a freezing cold night with family and friends.
I was able to spend time with a few friends and as many family members as I could.
I even made a trip to Ottawa for NYE.
I went to the Museum of Nature.
It was a wonderful time to spend at home, though it went by fast. I made lots of memories!
