-Christmas Day was quiet. We were waiting for Jon & Andrea to arrive on the 26th from visiting Andrea's family in Saskatchewan before celebrating Christmas with the family. Though I did have a nice long chat with my Mom, and cousin Jackie.
-Jon, Andrea and the boys arrived and we opened the presents we were exchanging - books, of course.
-The 27th we headed to the farm and enjoyed chopping wood, having a camp fire, riding the quad or being pulled behind the quad on the toboggan.
-The next day we drove David back to Winnipeg for his flight back home. Then we went to Pinewa to visit Myron's Uncle Jack in the hospital.
-The Hildebrand Family gathering was held in Morden on the 30th. Tamara joined her step-cousins in performing a song - 'Breath of Heaven' and then she sang 'Cinnamon & Chocolate' on her own with Lisa accompanying her from your Youth Singers Christmas show.
-New Years Eve day was a very cold day (-28C) and Myron hiked 5 miles out to the farm in the blustery cold. We had a lobster boil planned for supper and the 'boys' tended the fire, had a few bears and got the water boiling in the cauldron to cook the lobster while the rest of us stayed warm in the house.
