And just like that, the holiday season is here! It's definitely one of my favorite times of the year. Spending time with friends and family, getting into the holiday spirit with Christmas decorations, lights, gingerbread cookies, hanging stockings above the fireplace, and let's not forget...the World Juniors!! All fun, and all brings warmth to the season.
This year, Tara and I will be doing something in addition to the above. We've decided to have our own 12 Days of Christmas. Starting on December 9th with fantastic tickets to the Nutcracker Ballet, and for 12 consecutive days, we will be participating in activities that bring joy to us, as well as others. I'm looking forward to Candy Cane Lane, volunteering at the Seniors Center, the Oilers/Jets game, making cookies for neighbours, and helping out with Families First here in Fort Saskatchewan. These are just a few of the 12 days here in our home. I love the idea, and hope it sparks some interest and fun for you and your family. So from my family (Tara, Cashew, Fira and myself) to yours, have a very Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!
