Merry Christmas from all of us

I lost track of time in the kitchen yesterday, cooking and baking with my visiting sister, while a stream of bright-eyed children, frisky canines, and hungry uncles passed through looking for handouts.

We boiled fresh Maritime lobster and folded it into buttered linguine, simmered a boeuf bourguignon for half a day, whisked together eggnog, and built a gingerbread house! As the snow continued to fall among the trees outside, I couldn’t help but stop to reflect on my many blessings and the joy of the season.

As we’re all whipping around with an apron tied on today, I’ll keep this post short and sweet. We couldn’t let the holidays pass without wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas.

Here’s wishing each reader the happiest of holidays from Danny, Noah, Mateo, Clara and myself. We’re so grateful to have this community and the loyal readership you all give us.

It is a Christmas first for someone very special and she is excited for every moment!

A huge thank you to Montreal family & baby photographer Angela of Tim Chin Photography for squeezing our holiday photo shoot in at the end of a very busy session of hers. She just had a baby of her own (yesterday!) but in a few months, be sure to look her up for your family portraits.

Merry Christmas to all!
