Frozen Christmas

Frozen Christmas

Last post from our December trip back east…We arrived in Vermont the day after an intense ice storm. It was glorious! Like stepping into a crystallized world. I’m sure I would have been singing an entirely different tune if our travels had been disrupted by the storm, but as we arrived with no mishaps I was able to enjoy the beauty of a world encased in ice.

The ice and -10F temperatures made for a chilly Christmas outdoors, but that of course didn’t keep the lights from twinkling or the fun from being had.

Not even lego world was immune to the chill

Home for the Holidays

We made the annual trek back east for Christmas and despite the frigid temperatures had a fabulous time with our families. Here are some photos from our week in Vermont at my sister’s house. We spent much of the time playing in the snow (well…ice really), cooking and just enjoying time together as a family. Here’s to another happy holiday season.

For Christmas Eve we had a Yankee Swap Party with the whole family. I believe the compression socks and Galileo thermometer were the most sought after (err…stolen) gifts of the night. Sadly no one wanted to take the over-sized t-shirt I opened from Dad.

The joys of Christmas morning.  There is nothing better than watching my niece and nephews’ faces light up with each gift they opened…and gave.

Stay tuned for more photos of the beauty of ice covered Vermont and our trip farther north to Montreal :)

Merry Everything

Although Thanksgiving and Hanukkah have long past and Christmas is still around the corner (not to mention all the other holidays of the season) , I wanted to wish you, whatever and wherever you celebrate, a Merry Everything…and a happy new year!

Merry EverythingCinder would also like to pass on the holiday cheer, except she’s too mesmerized by all the pretty lights. Cinder Merry Everything
