We've had a great week here, visiting with all the family we only see a few times a year, plus having Emily and Allan share the holiday with us. By the time we go back to Edmonton next week we'll have seen and visited with all the sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, and friends who live here. Hopefully most of them will show up at our house tonight for our New Year's Eve party.
Here's a brief pictorial of our week.
|Lloyd and I showed our Team Colors|
|Kenny worked on a puzzle|
|Emily and I went for a mani/pedi. Em's blue polish matches her blue belt.|
She'll look stunning at her next TaiKwonDo class.
|I wore my new silk scarf when we went out to dinner with friends|
|We had Sunday brunch with Allan and Emily|
|at Mocha Cabana, a lovely little restaurant in a remodelled blacksmith foundry.|
|We drove around Lethbridge taking pictures of interesting storefronts and|
buildings. This was my favorite.
|Allan set up our Apple TV and we spent evenings watching movies.|
|Kenny, Alex and I had fun with vinegar, baking soda and food color.|
|Emily cooked the most delicious dinner for us - braised short ribs over|
a vegetable mash of cauliflower, parsnips, and carrots. More please!
|Emily and I worked on a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle - a Christmas tradition.|
|I practiced taking pictures with my new camera. This|
And that brings up to tonight - New Year's Eve. Whatever your plans are, I hope you have a safe and happy celebration and a new year that brings you the best life has to offer.
