gorgeous mounted print from a gallery in Tofino (recorded here primarily because I can never remember what I get for Christmas). Christmas morning was mellow -- peach-porridge bake for breakfast, then just hanging out while the kids played with new stuff until it was time to head to my folks' place in Kelowna. Somewhere in there Jason and Karen popped by on their way to Penticton, which is always a treat. I need to get a photo of J's incredible new coat tomorrow at the Stoesz get together.
lens I've been too cheap to buy for myself. Tannis used it for this great shot of me playing violin in mom 'n dad's living room -- perfect sound in there, with a big vaulted ceiling and hardwood floors. Ezra accompanied me on the piano.
Tannis and I could sleep in a bit. Glory be. Then gorging on waffles with pudding, syrup, ice cream and strawberries. Then more lounging around, and I inflicted more of my beginner violin songs on everyone. Oh, and Ella rocked her cute new 'do all along. Uncle Ryan was missed, but as he was in Europe, none of us felt too sorry for him.
So we didn't do the family photo thing this year; either the taking of it or the sending out to everyone. But we hope you had a great Christmas, and thanks for dropping in here -- it's always nice to hear from friends and relatives this time of year. Hope we get to see you this year!
Update: Tannis also added some more photos and reflections from Christmas.
