Merry Christmas everyone!
We arrived safely back up north on Friday,
just in time to experience our first real northern Christmas.
On Christmas Eve morning we snowshoed deep into the woods to find our tree....
We opted for a little scraggly guy, since we had to carry him home ourselves (and to be honest, all the trees up here are a little scraggly anyway).
And guess who we ran into on the way back home from getting our tree?
A herd of reindeer!
No doubt they were getting ready for their big night up ahead : )
We decorated our scraggly little tree as best as we could, with the few ornaments we brought up with us from Montreal, and I made a star out of tinfoil and wire : )
And we exchanged gifts on Christmas Eve (in honour of my European family's tradition).
The hubby gave me this beautiful snowflake necklace to represent our new life up north.
Isn't that so sweet?!
It was a quiet Christmas, just the two of us, but it was magical just the same.
I hope you're having a wonderful holiday too.
