This Christmas was nearly perfect! The only part I would like to do over would be the part where I suffered through a nasty headcold.
We have been spending our days visiting with friends, baking, sledding, climbing the giant snow hill, warming up by bonfires, eating baking, more visiting..... All around fun and relaxing times! At one point we ended up at a gully in town with about a dozen other families. We were sliding down and then being hauled back up by skidoos. So fantastic.
Christmas day was pretty low-key here. Presents were opened by gleeful boys, chocolate was consumed by the pound(s) and we went sledding with another family. We didn't have company for supper and I just cooked a big ham in the crockpot. We watched Cars 2 and all crashed pretty early that night.
I love that Faro gives us so much time to just relax and enjoy the family time. With only two stores (the general store and liquor store) there isn't much for last minute shopping or Boxing Day sales.
This video is one of the most memorable moments of the holiday. My kids crack me up.
