Christmas with Family

Our Christmas celebrations began on Christmas Eve with a traditional Ukrainian mass. It included an annual 'chat' with my childhood neighbour, Carolyn. It is always a pleasure to see her and now to watch her son 'serve' on the alter. From there we headed to Bush Street to meet up with the family, enjoy some food, open presents and this year, to fill up our red Solo cups!

Due to our rather late night, Santa didn't arrive until the wee hours of the morning, but come he did and oh boy, did he have a huge delivery for Cadence at Baba's house!

There was quite a mess when all was said and done.

Despite the turkey in the oven and the freezer full of baked goods Baba had, there was someone who insisted on baking 'RIGHT NOW!'

At least she was willing and keen to clean up!

Later in the day, we met up with the family again for round two of food and drink. This time we threw in a little music and dance!

It was a great start to the holiday festivities ... more to come!
