Sean & I had a very nice Christmas with his family in New Brunswick. We split our stay between his Sister & Brother in-law's place in Fredericton, and his Parents' place in Stickney. Sean got to see his family, whom he misses very much, and I got to know my various in-laws better, and hone my cribbage losing skills (I promise to practise for next year Don!). Of course, hanging out with our nephew was a blast too, and I have to admit I still find myself humming the Backyardigans theme every once in a while.
Getting home was tricky; our first flight was canceled, and it sounds like we might have been the last flight out of the airport before the next storm hit. The plane for the main leg of the flight was awesome, and made the hours whiz by.
Today, I've been shopping and cooking and cleaning in preparations for our Un-Christmas dinner. I'm trying to do all the sides today, so I only have to worry about the turkey tomorrow. I'm trying out a dish from the cookbook my Sister in-law gave me for Christmas- should be a crowd pleaser- there's lots of bacon in it.
A great big thank-you to all our family out in NB- thanks for putting us up, and putting up with us! It was a wonderful Christmas.
