Christmas 2009

Christmas was quite a quiet affair this year.  However, we enjoyed a nice few days together around and about at home.

We put up the tree, which was a perfect shape this year.  Again we bought a Noble Fir as we’ve had previous years as they last so well and don’t drop their needles.

IMG_0751On Christmas Eve we were invited to Sig & Helens in Burnaby.  They had laid on a delicious spread and Jill (Helen’s mum) was visiting from Kelowna and had made proper English style mince pies.

When their friend Sharon joined us she took a group photo.  Along the back row: myself, David and Bella, front row: Sig, Max, Basil, Helen and Jill.


On Christmas Day we webcammed with Adrians family and then Davids before being joined by Alecia with baby Maya while her husband was at work until 4pm.

We get cuddles with Maya and enjoy some jumbo shrimp with garlic mayo, smoked salmon and mini quiches.

That evening David laid on an excellent dinner with all the trimmings.
