Not long gone...and certainly not forgotten! I think I posted on Facebook that it was perfect -- which it was!
It began, of course, in a candlelight service at St. Cyprian's, Lacombe, on Christmas Eve. After the service, there was birthday cake, and my son led those gathered in a joyful rendition of "Happy Birthday" for Baby Jesus.

We (just three) celebrated at my DD's new house-fast-becoming-a-home. She made her first Christmas roast chicken dinner. I coached her on the gravy, and on basting The Bird. He turned out...well...perfectly. Add spinach-pomegranate salad (with goat cheese), a dollop of mashed 'yam-tatoes', and home-made dinner rolls...et voila!

Other gifts were scented (bathing goodies, dark-roasted coffee beans), to be spen-ted (sorry; bad attempt at a rhyme!), or just plain goofy, like these keep-the-wind-out hats that Santa brought...
I know the Yarn Harlot claims that her family has Christmas celebration down to a fine art, but I'd say that she's got some competition, eh?
