December 24, 2012


I love our Christmas Eve Celebrations, complete with a roaring fire, LOL. It was a wonderful evening, despite me being sick. Dinner was still wonderful. Thank you so much, Shannon, for stepping in and pulling it all together. And it was so nice to be together, including our call with you, Suzie, and with Jason too! A magical evening.


The Christmas lights are up!!! And just in time to enjoy here on Christmas Even. I know it's hard to capture them in pictures but I did my best!  I put up the combo-lights that have all the different settings and a string of blue lights plus another set in the washroom.  And I made the major Chirstmas lights faux pas of not testing the strand before putting it up!  Good thing I found multiple strings of blue lights that I could easily replace them.


Reg and I finally finished decorating the tree last night and thanks to Shannon, watched The Bishop's Wife which even Reg liked which was nice. We also got these new little bird ornaments for the tree when we went Christmas shopping yesterday that made me fall in love with our tree all over again.

What a lovely tree Suzie! And I love that you have old school big lights like we had at home :) I'm glad to hear Reg liked The Bishop's Wife, I was so thrilled to see it on and enjoyed watching it while making some Christmas treats :)

Look at all those beautiful lights! We've put up white lights the past couple of years but you are both making miss a medley of colour!

Suzie, your tree is beautiful. How wonderful to know that you feel in love with it all over again :)

I love that we all love The Bishop's Wife, including Reg!

I did manage to get a Christmas Eve picture up. Sorry for being so tardy. Being sick had me completely offline for a couple of days!

Suzie Ridler said...

Sorry, just catching up. With Reg home, my computer time is so limited!

Thank you, so glad you like the tree. I'm so happy with the little birdies we added to it this year.

Shannon, so glad you got lights up too, way to go!

Jamie, thank you for sharing that photo of Mom and Shannon, helps make me feel like I was there. :)

I was happy to help Jamie! As I said to Justin (who is an awesome helper!), it's just like riding a bike! I loved getting advice from you and Mom, especially when the answer was you cook it "til it's done". Yep, that's how it works!
