A few highlights from a Christmas in Southwestern Ontario
Right before a wonderful meal shared with long distance cousins on Boxing Day, my lovely grandfather prayed for our meal and he ended his prayer with, "We thank you so much for all of our dear grandchildren.....even Chloe." I think he was making sure we were all paying attention?
The first Christmas as a married couple was absolutely splendid. My gorgeous new family (shown above) enjoyed many laughs, and late nights together. The Wiebe's are an adventurous bunch who care about each other, eat great food and listen well. I am honoured to be considered their family.
The Hill family is rich with musicians and there has never been a Christmas where we haven't been asked to play our instruments for each other. The grumbling that leads up to this is also a tradition, but without fail our Christmas recitals have become a very memorable part of the holiday season.
