It's Still Cold Outside!!!!!!!

Reality bites - this cold weather in addition to the slippery roads makes for treacherous driving conditions.......and of course people are out doing their last minute most roads are like parking lots in rush hour. Waited until eight o'clock last night to go and get some presents my husband wanted for coworkers - things had calmed down by that hour, so was able to get what he wanted. Have three more days of work - Mon, Tues and Wed - then am done until after nest week - thank goodness!

Home for the Holidays

My Mom loved Christmas and she loved the color pink, so when she found this pink Christmas tree, she had to have it. Every year around the beginning of December, she would invite the family over for dinner and we would help her decorate the house and the tree.
She also loved white Christmas bears and started to collect them when she had a house with a big staircase. I inherited not only the tree but the bears so........ up they go every Christmas. It reminds us of all the fun we had during the Christmas season.

Baby It's Cold Outside!

Okay - knew it was going to be a shock coming back to Calgary but really.....this minus 20+ degree weather can leave anytime!!!! Think we were temporarily fooled as it was quite mild when we returned and now this cold weather seems unbearable.
Well going to get the tree up today and the house decorated a bit I hope...maybe then we'll be able to get into the Christmas spirit!

Back on Mountain Time

It has taken awhile to get back to Canada time - but back we are and not a moment too soon. Sunday, we had fairly significant snowfall, so it is starting to feel like Christmas. Getting back into the swing of things - is proving to be a little difficult - you know that let down feeling after you have had a wonderful holiday.....only worked one day last week but think once I am back to my normal schedule things will start falling into place.
It was good to get home after being away so long but also hard to leave our girl so far away. Never mind, we know she is with a wonderful man who loves her very much so that made it easier to leave.
Getting to help her buy her wedding gown my last day in Brisbane was a real bonus for both her and I. Now she can concentrate on finding a venue here in town.
Took lots of pictures - am sorting through them now - here are a few of the best!

Finally sleeping

After two sleepless nights and days, finally managed to get some shuteye last night - thank goodness - was beginning to think I wasn't ever going to be able to get more than an hour here or there.
Have many, many pictures to edit - will post some of the best shortly.
