Happy Holidays!

We had our first of three turkey dinners today and hours later I'm still full. My mum made a full Christmas dinner for 44 people - my mum's extended family.

I haven't been feeling too much holiday spirit lately and I blame the weather. Drizzly, grey rainy days with no snow just don't make it feel like Christmas.

We're off to my parents' house early tomorrow, where we'll head to church for the service and a carol sing and then home for Christmas dinner with my family there. It'll be the first time I've ever not been home Christmas morning. We're driving to Windsor late tomorrow night then back to the 'shwa to get the house sorted out from all the painting business.

Hope you are able to have a relaxing, enjoyable holiday, surrounded by the people who love you.

Merry Christmas to you and yours from us in the 'shwa!

44 people. Holy crap! I can't even get my head around that. I start to glaze over and find it all too much right around ten.

It is pretty insane, even if a few people brought side dishes, but my mum pulls it off with barely a bead of sweat.
