- Christmas Cards. I gave this a no go and we are just going to send baby announcements instead.
- Christmas baking. For some reason, treats around here don't readily get consumed. We have fun making them, they go in a container, then get forgotten and thrown out. It's kind of a shame, so I've only made a couple of treats this year and that's it.
There is alot though that we've added in this Christmas season. With Grace being well on her way to 3, we've started new traditions such as skating and gingerbread house making, and as of a couple days ago, toboganning. There is something so splendid about sharing new experiences with someone. At any age.
The summer Nate and I were married, we drove back to Alberta from B.C. through the Rocky Mountains. He had never seen them before. I recall being in awe, watching his amazement as he gazed up at the towering peaks. It is so easy for amazing things to become everyday items when we are exposed to them so frequently.
And yesterday was not only the first time toboganning for Grace, but also for Nate. He'd gone down a hill on a crazy carpet before, but never an actual toboggan. I loved introducing both of them to something so "Albertan" to me.
And no, no babe yet. 9 days til Due Date #1. 14 days til Due Date #2. Tick tock, tick tock...
