Christmas Eve

We're home! Whistler was a winter wonderland. As we sat in a cafe having lunch together yesterday, looking out at the snow and the passersby it felt like as much as a person could ever want.

Here's a short video of the boys skiing:

Remember this Santa tracking device? We spend a lot of time on this site every year on Christmas Eve.

I went to the grocery store relatively late in the evening yesterday, and it felt exotic somehow, to be part of a whole different shopping crowd. The produce bins were filled to the brim with pomegranates, brussels sprouts and every kind of good thing for Christmas. I'm looking forward to some easy time at home and in the kitchen over the next couple of days with family.

Happy holidays, very dear reader. xoxo Lecia

(We enjoyed re-visiting the Olympic rings. In case you missed it, a post about our Olympic visit in February.)

I like this photo of cal & Abbott in the circles :)
a break like this can only be good. for body & soul.
the fact that we leave just after Christmas & that i made 90% of my food shopping @ the health/organic store made me feel like belonging to something else, watching the rush & last minute crazy shopping from far away... a nice feeling indeed.
enjoy your family & your home
joyeux Noël xxx

I love the NORAD Tracks Santa website. When I lived in Fuerteventura my friends and I would watch the site from their bar on Christmas eve with a few glasses of wine.

Now I am back home, I still watch the website with my friends via skype :D it's wonderful

We used the Norad site this year, too, thanks in large part to my FB friends (like you!) who first alerted me to it. My husband was worried that it would ruin the mytique, but the truth was far from that. We all LOVED it!
