An Okanagan Christmas

It was a special Christmas for the Suttie and Graham families in Penticton this season. A first Christmas in the new house for grandma, Fred and Jamie. We missed having Rachel and Kris home for Christmas this year. Rachel had her first day on duty on Christmas Day.

As per usual, every meal was carefully planned and very, very delicious. The stockings were hung with care (and treats!!!). We had a couple walks through the snow. And of course, what would Christmas be without Yatzee, Mexican train and (the new game of the season).

As I reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, I am always amazed at how special and sacred it is to be with family, especially at this time of year. Families rule!!!!

It was also nice to catch up with friends this season.We visited Sherry and her 3 boys and saw her family as well. We chatted over home-made chocolate truffles, chips and cookies. A very healthy lunch indeed!

We joined 15,000 other Dane Cook fans and laughed our heads off while Dane performed for 2 straight hours! Big thanks to Andrea and John for organizing it and driving, and to Jake for joining us.
