The Holiday's

It has been a very busy couple of weeks. First there was Christmas, which was a lot of fun. We were in Halifax for Christmas day. Chad and I woke up relatively early. We opened presents from each other and I made waffles for breakfast. That is one tradition I wanted to start this year. They were only ok because it was my first attempt. I will have to perfect that skill by next christmas. That afternoon we went and visited Chad's family. We had a great dinner at Chad's brothers place and stayed there until midnight watching movies and playing with the kids.

This is my tree...I say "my" because Chad hates it. I have to say that this year it looks better with the normal white lights, verus last year with the dang rope light!

Then boxing day, bright and early we left to go to my parents place. We exchanged gifts there and since we were all together my older sister inisted we do a family picture. She is the photographer in the family and dispite her love of taking pictures....she hates taking our family picture cause we like to complain through the whole process. It turned out nice though.

New Years came quickly after that and my sisters were planning a party. They asked me to make a cake for it. So I did and we spent new years with my family and friends. It was a fun night.

Then 3 days later it was my birthday (I told you it was busy).
I am now 26 years old. It is hard to believe! I am not really sure what happened to the last 5 years to make them go by so quickly! Chad had invited family over to have cake and ice cream on my birthday. Just before he brought the cake out he asked me for candles...i said we didn't have any. That didn't discourage Chad...he is quite creative! I had match candles. Thanks babe! You are the best!

Now it is January 6th and I have offically given my notice at work and my last day will be Jan 22nd. This has been coming for a long time and I am so happy to have finally done it!

I have been told by Caverly that "this is our year"...I am hoping that 2010 is a great year!
