Christmas Morning

We had a lovely Christmas morning.

I slept in 'til 10am and we had waffles with Saskatoon berries for breakfast.

We lit the tree lights

and turned on the fireplace (channel).
We weren't too upset that we aren't having a white Christmas. This photo was to show the absence of snow.
And the above freezing-ness of the outdoor temperature.
Skip surprised me with a teeny-weeny sound system, the X-mini Mini II - The Original Capsule Speaker (and lots of other cool gifts).

It has a 12 hour rechargeable battery and compresses down to about the size of a clementine when closed.
He also surprised me with a Mac photo book of photos from our cruise. (Can you tell we're techno-geeks?)

Skip liked the wine and iPad keyboard case I gave him (among other things).
He was bummed out that he misplaced the Chapters gift card he had planned to give me. He has such classy sticky notes!
Ollie got into the action by squatting on the tissue paper.
This is Ollie's usual perch - under the grow lights beside the geraniums Skip brought in from the garden for the winter.
Later this afternoon we'll be off to Lorna's for Christmas dinner - turkey - yay!

We are so fortunate to have such good friends and family and (touch wood) our good health.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and fun times with your family and friends for the holiday season.
