mini Christmas vacation

Our Christmas was very nice, low key but we got to spend it with family and friends, which is what really matters.

The biggest gift we got was for the house and our enjoyment, a set of  Bose Companion 3 speakers. Our Toshiba TV has very poor audio so sometimes when we watch movies we needed to use this old speaker that my husband had and that were already broken.

These new Bose ones a very good quality and perfect to replace the old ones, the sound is super nice and crisp.
On Christmas Day we had a brunch with my Brother and SIL, to celebrate Christmas but also his birthday, we had a little chocolate birthday cake for him and we even sang Happy Birthday but at the time I didn't have my camera handy so I didn't take pictures, I know my SIL did, so I will share some soon!

Later than day we went to our friends Duncan and Linda's house, they invite us every year so this one was our 5th time there. We had waaaaay too much food, I took a dessert (like I do every year) but this year there were about 3 other deserts. Mine was a Fudge Chocolate Trifle and it was really good...

Dessert almost finished...
Today is my last day off, then I go back to work but I will still have the weekend off (1st and 2nd) then back to work on the 3rd for the rest of the new year, LOL!!!

We are having a New Year's Party at our house and I think this one will be the biggest since we started having one from 3 years ago, I am excited and I think it would be so much fun... Any plans on your end for the New Year celebration??? Come and join us if you'll like : )

Hope everybody in the Big White North is keeping warm and that snow and storms and not affecting them too back. Blessings to all!

A simple and pleasant Christmas you had there. I got not much plans for new year, perhaps will just go to somewhere nice to have dinner (fingers crossed) or .... stay at home =.=
