Home for Christmas

Happy Friday, all! I'm a bit late posting this week owing to the topsy-turviness of travelling across the Atlantic. And if I'm a little mixed up, then Baby TR is downright befuddled. He's spent the past five nights waking at 3 a.m. and wanting to play!

Apart from a little (okay, a lot) of sleep deprivation, we've had a great time in Canada so far. Despite my worries, Baby TR performed admirably well on the seven-hour flight. He didn't sleep a wink (too much to look at!) but he kept his ear-piercing shrieking mostly to himself.

And since we arrived, we've gone to Prince Edward Island to see my grandmother and other relatives, played in the snow, and done A LOT of eating.

We arrived the day before the first big snowstorm of the year.


Baby TR's first taste of snow.

And more snow!

Do you see a theme here?

Today, we will be putting up the tree, and next week we have Baby TR's first year celebrations, along with Christmas! Yay!

I will be back before the New Year, but until then... Merry Christmas, everyone.

  12. It looks beautiful especially when you're on holiday and can enjoy it. Hasn't your boy grown? I hope his jet lag doesn't mean more sleepless nights on your return. Have a lovely Christmas with your family x

  18. Welcome to Canuck Land, eh! I remember those jet-lagged-baby trips, waking up at 3:00 ready to play (I took a few trips to Germany with mine when they were little). And I hate to tell you this, but you're likely going to have the same scenario going back to England, because by then he'll be used to the Canadian time zone. Just plan on some extra time getting readjusted! Have a very Merry Christmas!
