Yule candle burning brightly for the day in our dinning room window.

Yule is a quiet celebration for us. I am the Practicing Pagan in our household. We were supposed to go to a bonfire at a local farm, but the weather did not work with us. It snowed heavy that night and the roads were not safe to be on.

In the morning I gave the girls a handmade cowl each and a pair of mitts(store bought) and a new Canadian Christmas Carol book and a couple movies.

Christmas was a bit more of a lively celebration as per usual…

Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve

Yum!

Christmas dinner was done on Christmas Eve so I can enjoy Christmas Day without having to be in the kitchen. Bill’s Mom came over for a breakfast of waffles, whipped cream and fresh strawberries on Christmas Day. After breakfast we opened gifts and relaxed for awhile. I put out all the leftovers, snacks and desserts on the table and we ate until we were stuffed. Relaxed some more…around 3 the girls put on their cross country skis and slid around the yard, while Bill, his mom and I went for a walk in the sun and cold…

Our day ended with snacking and Christmas movies.

Boxing day was Bill’s family’s dinner. It was the first one with out my father-in-love. It was quiet and subdued. Way different from the norm….to be expected.

I hope you all had a great Holiday Season.

Happy New Year! Welcome 2017…I hope it is a happy and prosperous one for you all.
