Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Apparently we thought it would be fun this year to put tinsel on Belle and as well as antlers and Santa hats. Somehow I don't think she shared the same enthusiasm as we did for any of those things. Regardless she is really cute so I am sharing the photos with you anyways as much as I am sure she would protest.We finally got snow about a week before Christmas. I was very very excited. However that excitement faded fast when it warmed up in the days leading up to Christmas and most of it was melted by Christmas morning and what was left was all brown and dirty. BOOOO!!Chris and I stayed home in Boston for Christmas this year. It was nice just the two of us but at the same time I was homesick for both Edmonton and Seattle. It is hard sometimes living so far away. We doggie sat for my girlfriend Georgette so we had her dog Madison for an entire week. Aside from her fur that she leaves all over my house we really love Madison a lot. Christmas day we opened presents, had a great breakfast, watched movies, played games, cooked a turkey with all the trimmings. It was relaxing and perhaps just what I needed. We were going to go to a movie that night but it was PACKED and our showing was sold out. The picture above is my amazing drawing of Chris's main gift from me, new roller hockey skates. Dicks sporting goods screwed up and so they were not here Christmas morning so I drew that picture for him. Don't be jealous of my amazing art work. New Years eve was very uneventful. That was our dinner, a really yummy BBQ chicken pizza from our new fav pizza place. We watched tv, drank champagne and watched the Oilers and Avs both lose. HOORAY!
That's right folks, 8.99!! That's how we roll.

Nice pics! Thanks for the "thumbs up" on our gift to you... ha ha! Belle looks so goofy in hats/antlers b/c her head is so tiny! She doesn't quite fill in the hats... or the beard! ;) And that pizza does look yummy! Is it from the leaning tower of Pizza place?? :P

Looks like a fun time...even if it was just the 2 of you. We had moments of complete chaos with the entire family but Christmas Day and New Years Eve was a quiet one for us as well. We LOVE the Christmas Story around here - especially Maya - so way to go on the new Monopoly game! My big gift was a GPS system so I am excited to use it sometime soon. We have talked about driving to see Dayna in Ontario - but we'll see how that pans out. Hope you have a great 2009!

I like the reindeer antler Belle pic the best. And wow, she can sure wrap herself into a tiny ball. :) Looks like a great Christmas with some awesome loot. :)
