The Dust Settles

 Hubby and I flew out west for five days of whirlwind holidaying.

There were parties...

Beef Wellington presented by the hostess-with-the-mostest:  Kiki the Wonderful!

Special treats...

Modelling new clothes, sort of...

Presents to open., but when you are only 8 months old, it's hard to know what's the most important part to focus on....

Then there's the assembly of the new toys.

When Papa Buz was asked what age level that toy was for, he answered, "Over 50!"

Everyone agreed that toys that didn't require assembly were the best of the day.

By the time the turkey was ready, the lamb roast was BBQ'd and the table was set, the feasters were drooling!

 It was -26 C outside, but the crew insists on using the BBQ all year round.  Dressed in his island shirt, the Chef was trying to convince himself he wouldn't freeze if he drank enough hot apple cider laced with spiced rum.  His forays outside to baste the roast were lightning quick and few and far between.

For all the hype, excitement and expectation, it sure didn't last long.  We're home again, with a few uninvited tag alongs...a head cold, sinus infections and more snow!!!  Good thing I didn't give away my  snow boots when I was out west.  Who knew I'd need them here in Southern Ontario where it almost never snows in December???

It may be snowing and blowing outside, but things are quiet here inside. We are getting set to head to the boat!!!  Yeehaw!  Steadfast, here we come.  I will sign off for 2012 and wish you all the very best for 2013.  Many blessings to you and your families as we move forward, living lives that will count for eternity.
