Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
Liam was sleeping, quiet as a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the fireplace with care, in the hopes that Santa would soon be there.
This year Tara, Liam and I are spending Christmas with Tara’s family in Vancouver. It actually marks the first time I’ve ever been away from my family for Christmas. It’s a happy and at the same time a little sad. But we all promised to share 🙂
Tonight we attended a very nice local candle light service at the church up the street from Tara’s mom’s place. It was lively and very Christmas like, which is good for a Christmas service 🙂
It’s been raining here, and will be a very green Christmas, but it’s not just about snow, it’s about being together. Tomorrow we’re going to Skype my parents so that they can see Liam, and the rest of us I suppose. 😉
Then, for the rest of our trip we’ll putter around town, visiting people and generally just having a good time.
So Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope your New Year brings you all wonderful things 🙂
