The holidays were a bit of a whirlwind..... busy, magical, lazy, and overflowing with wonderful family moments. Everything I wanted them to be! There was even a surprise Christmas morning proposal... followed by a ton of happy tears :)
We split our time off between both families, so there was a fair bit of travelling involved (including a flight on Christmas day). But it was all well-worth it.
Here's a little photographic recap....
^^ we hosted a little pre-Christmas holiday brunch at our Montreal apartment, which was a big success ^^
^^ Christmas Eve at my parent's place in the country is always so magical ^^
^^ Christmas day at my in-law's in Toronto ^^
^^ we usually celebrate Christmas day in New Jersey with my husband's family, but this year the entire American family came up to Toronto instead. My mother-in-law had matching Christmas pyjamas made for everyone that read "xmas in Canada" on them. We all wore them the entire day, and even ate Christmas dinner in them! ^^
^^ An idyllic December 26th... spent outside by the fire, roasting marshmallows, drinking hot chocolate and going on sleigh rides... well, more like "wagon-rides" since all the snow had unfortunately melted ^^
^^ Random family moments hanging out with cousins, singing Christmas songs, and more lazing around in our jammies ^^
All in all, a jolly good time :)
I hope your holidays were filled with love and laughter.
