It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to Canada to see my family. Nick and I flew up very early, a 7:45 am flight, on Saturday and headed to my parents’ place in Fenelon Falls.

We spent the first two days of our Christmas visit in the woods, on the river, which was lovely and quiet. It was great to catch up with my parents, just the four of us. On Sunday, I scanned about 300 photos from my old photo albums that are still being stored in their garage (stay tuned for a post from that later!) and that night, we went out for a really nice dinner at Pane Vino in Lindsay.

On Monday, we all drove down to Oshawa for the Christmas celebrations with the rest of my family at the Martin’s house.

I hadn’t seen Ryan and Suzanne since May!

And it was so good to see my cute little niece and nephew.

We all hung out, eating and drinking and talking until it was time to eat. Lucky for Jenn, my Mom still makes the turkey even when dinner isn’t at her house.

For the past couple years, my family has celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve, which means eating our big turkey dinner and exchanging presents that night.

Ben and Jillian got their first Alfie toy this year and they fell in love with him.

When it was time for bed, Ben was so sad that Alfie had to go back to the North Pole that he kept getting choked up, telling us it “pulled on his heartstrings” that he had to leave until next Christmas.

He’s pretty much the sweetest little boy there ever was.

On Christmas morning, the kids actually slept in until almost 8:00!

Ben was thrilled to get a Polar Express train and Jillian was so happy just to get her “baby seal named Pearl” from Santa.

That day, we relaxed, visited, and ate even more.

I love my family!

I hope you all had a great Christmas too!
