Hello my friends, it's just a little over a week until Christmas day... this is my favourite week
of the whole year.
There is still so much to look forward to...
I'm such a kid at heart.
I love the lights...
|My tomato cage Christmas tree.|
And I love the snow...
and I love the anticipation of what comes next...

Our son and his family will be here on Christmas Day.
We'll open gifts and we'll play games, it's always so much fun.
I'm so grateful that we have my son Greg and his sweet wife Maranetta and children to share it all with.
Perhaps hubby and I will go ice-skating a couple of blocks away at the neighbourhood outdoor rink...
Maybe we will have fresh snow to make snow ice-cream with...
Who knows, perhaps friends will stop by and we'll have coffee and
a traditional Canadian sweet that is one of my husbands favourite Christmas desserts.
What are you anticipating, my friends?
Whatever it is I know it will be wonderful.
My heart is with the families of Connecticut who lost loved ones, and will not be celebrating Christmas with them this year.
It is my prayer that this kind of thing would never again happen, in any country on Earth.
It's just too sad.
