Merry Christmas!

Christmas is so much more fun with a three year old! Henry was much more excited this year. As I was lying in bed awake on Christmas morning, I heard him climb out of his bed, creep into the livingroom and say, "Wowww!!!!" Then he ran down the hall and said, "Mommy, come and see all the toys Santa brought!" It made my day.
We had a busy December, with me singing in a Christmas concert, Henry doing a dance recital, and the usual hustle and bustle that comes with the season. It's amazing how time just seems to go faster and faster the older I get. Mom and Dad warned me this would happen! So before we knew it, Christmas was upon us.
Our tradition is to spend Christmas Eve and morning at home, and then off to see the family. After a few whirlwind days of visiting in Peterborough we have settled back in and are looking forward to another tradition...the New Year's Eve party at the Heathcote residence! This party is unbelievable! Sue and Geoff move their furniture into the garage to host this yearly shindig complete with a live band, bar, dance floor and potluck feast! It is well attended by the folks at Queen City Yacht Club, and we haven't missed one yet! What better way to ring in the New Year than dancing with your sweetheart and sipping champagne amongst friends?
With another year drawing to a close, I wish you all health and happiness, and most of all, love!
