T and I had the privilege of going to be with my family in southern Alberta this year (Thanks for sharing those air-miles mom!!) It’s been a good two years since our last Christmas with these fine folks, so we really were very excited about it. We had an amazing time, obvi, however we did miss Trist’s fam and are keeping our fingers crossed for Christmas 2014 in Chicago/Michigan. #seat-sales!
frustrated very MAD about my lack of pics! My iPhone camera is seriously on it’s last leg..therefore many snaps I took of you beloved friends and fam were simply way too out-of-focus or way too crappy to post. (Mom, Matina, Lina, and Sarah vs !) I had high hopes for the photos of your beautiful faces, however, they were too low-quality to include. Booooooooooooooh.
Ok, onto the good stuff.
We were SO pleased to be able to meet-up with our dear Calgary friends before arriving at my dads in the country. So many old buddies came to hang out and catch up and it was just so lovely to see them all. We really miss our friends from home! Life isn’t the same without them, and I definitely became reminded of that yet again upon being re-united this time around.
*Special thanks to Lina for picking us up from the airport, making us din (and sharing champagne), and hosting us for the night! Such a doll. Such a delight to stay-up late into the night talking with you. T & I are simply so thankful for you. xx
*Special thanks to Sarah vs for being….. Freeking hilarious and pretty much amazing.
You have no idea how much I miss you mim.
The whirl-wind that ensued after our one-night-only with Calg friends involved shopping for my sister’s wedding gown, going to see my bro & Shaela’s concert (and dancing the night away), catching up with our extended fam, eating way too much delicious food, more dancing with the sibs, sibs in-law, (and Bonnie and Elyse and Pablo) at the town pub, enduring cold weather again (apparently I’ve become a major baby when it comes to prairie winters), getting totally spoiled by my parents and sibs with prezzies (seriously thoughtful and amazing prezzies), AND spending some much needed quality time with my mom and dad, and grandma.
We are so very thankful for the friends and fam that we have been blessed with. Please enjoy these fabulous blurry pics of our Alberta adventure!
