It happens

I so wanted to blog about Xmas related topics every day. Then life happened and I was stuck between mortality and Xmas since wednesday. It was a strange place. I had more of a physical reaction than a psychological one. I was really bone tired and falling asleep all over the place. But I'm glad to say Xmas won and I'm back! Xmas represents pure JOY for us. Joy for the birth of baby Jesus, Joy for the family gatherings, Joy to be with loved ones, Joy for the good food,good movies and just hanging out.

Xmas Pyrex from the 80's and a small friendship casserole full of hot popcorn. YUM!

A cool seasonnal display  @ Quinn Farm on Ile Perrot where we got our tree.  

How whimsical is that big ol' barn?

I tried and I tried to take a nice pic of my Xmas tree with the lights this evening but this is the most interesting I got! I kept trying all the settings of my camera and this was the coolest!

So life does go on and I'm the luckiest gal to have such a toughtful better half. What cheers me up more than anything?
  A roadtrip of course! We are definitely heading west to Ontario, but we might cross the bridge to NY state and I might be able to get my hands on some delicious seasonnal New England Coffee and some seasonnal Coffee Mate.....hum....Eggnog, Gingerbread....I can't wait to taste you!

I am hoping for tons of vintage Xmas decorations as well! Blow-molds watch out!

On the bright side, the tree looks like it's covered in friendly Christmas neon squiggle worms! This is a plus to me, I don't know your personal feelings on squiggly Christmas worms

I'm laughing at Ben's comment, as the lights do look like squiggly worms. I am so happy you get a road trip. Enjoy these last days before Christmas!
