christmas came early

keith's parents live in corner brook. so that's where we spend christmas. for the last few years we've gone out to st. john's the week end before christmas to spend with my daughter and son-in-law and the grandchildren. i love this time together. to witness and take part in their pre-christmas traditions. setting up the christmas village and decorating their own little trees for their bedrooms.

the obligatory school christmas concert.
going out into the woods and finding the perfect tree. and then decorating it. the littlest one always puts the star on last.

this year we brought our skates with us and all had a family skate.
and decided to exchange our gifts together.
and on the morning we left - a little musical send-off.
this was my christmas.
