The day began in a flurry of unwrapping…
|Stockings! Chocolate for breakfast!|
|The little prince|
(Note the very green grass out the window!)
|A rainbow princess|
|She found her name on something!|
|Meeting her Nutcracker Prince|
|Books from grandparents|
|Laying tracks through the chaos|
|The brunch bunch - our very own bacon and eggs|
This was the mildest Christmas I have ever experienced. Not just green, but warm (+15 celsius), with wind, rain and flood warnings! Late morning there was a bit of a lull in the downpour so we drove up to Robinson's Island on the north shore for a walk on the windy beach…
|It's a bit blurry, but there's that 15!|
|Merry Christmas to the ocean!|
Soon after we got home, the power went out, and stayed out till dinner ended. No one was complaining about the candlelight… and thankfully my propane stove kept on cooking our Christmas dinner! We had our own home-grown ham, mashed turnips and apple sauce, and scalloped potatoes. It was just us for dinner - calm and bright.
|Crafty in jammies|
Lights! Camera! Bedtime!
Merry Christmas from our little island hearth and homestead!
