Our Christmas

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all had an enjoyable festive season. Who knows, perhaps you’re still in the midst of your holidays. For Ligeia and I, we’re both back at work. Can you feel our excitement?

For our Christmas we decided not to do anything special. We didn’t buy any gifts, or plan anything tremendous. We woke up without an alarm, made scrambled eggs and home fries, and then went hiking along part of the Bruce Trail. Had we been more in shape, and had our muscles not hurt as much as they did, we would have gone skating. But, alas, our new skates will have to wait for another day… hopefully sometime soon.

Anyhoo, here are some pics of our Christmas hike. The fog made it pretty close to a white Christmas! 😉

Have a fun, happy and safe New Year’s!

Lots of love,
Mindy and Ligeia 🙂

    Happy Hannukwansmas Ligeia and Mindy!
    I’m at my parents for the holiday season, spreading out the gift-giving over about two weeks given all the extended family. I had the GREAT fortune to meet Jen Cooper for coffee on the Eve of Christmas Eve. She lives just 25 miles from my parents. You know what is so great about old friends? You just pick up where you left off! Anyway, I hope to visit soon (i.e. within a year or two). Love Mark

    God Jul og Godt Nytt År!
    Sounds like you had a relaxing christmas, that was my goal this year, and you could say I reached it since I spent most of the week in bed with a bad flu.. We had a traditional christmas, which is celebrated the 24th in Norway. We eat porridge mid day, then we walk around the christmas tree singing christmas carols, and, if you’re lucky(or there are too many kids screaming, like in our case), you get to open the presents under the tree BEFORE dinner, which – like all traditional feasts – is a creazy combination of way too much food, often including lyed stockfish (jack) and rib. I spent it with all my parents, 4 sisters and brothers, and 4 nephews under 3 years old, it was crazy, but great.
    I sould have startet workin yesterday, but I’m still sick, so I’ll enjoy staying home for all of you who can’t 😉

    PS speaking of snow… we didn’t have any here in Oslo either… It’s kind of hard to keep rumors of ice bears in the streets with such weather forecasts… but they say it’ll come in January and stay through April, so everyone is hoping they’re right 😉

    It sounds great and the pics are lovely. Hopefully I will meet Mindy en see you again at the end of May when I will be staying with a friend in Toronto for a couple of days.
    Christmas was very relaxed as our daughter and partner invited the whole family over for Christmas day and shared a great breakfast, all home baked, a lovely long walk and served a scrumptious, creative dinner before we drove over to the Airport to pick up our Canadian vriend in the evening from Heathrow. Another friend from Holland came on Boxing day and we enjoyed Lots of log fires, walks , games, chat, discussions food and giggles…
    It’s wild here today with gusts of wind of 70 miles I am told, and lots of unfortunate lorries toppling over. I remain firmly at home clearing up after our /Christmas visitors left a few days ago left. Lots of love.

    Hope you both are having a fantastic year so far 🙂

    Sorry it’s taken us so long to write but the computers in Vietnam were REALLY bad!

    We had a really quiet Christmas with Amy’s sister and her husband followed by 3 days on the beach.

    Hope it finally snowed in Ontario!

    Love to you both!
