I hope you all had a great holiday with friends and family. We spend some time before Christmas visiting my brother and his girlfriend in Edmonton. They gave me an awesome gift - a new pasta maker and ravioli maker! I'm hopefully going to try making my own pasta a bit later this week. From Edmonton we continued onto Bonnyville to visit with Marc's sister and her family. We had a great time visiting with everyone, and it was really cute spending Christmas morning with our nieces.
When we came back home, my best friend Heather was here visiting from Manitoba, so she stayed with us for a few days. We caught up with some much needed girl time (I especially enjoyed polishing off a bottle of red while watching Dirty Dancing one of the nights she was here).
Marc and I both managed to come down with a winter cold this week - he made us a huge batch of his awesome homemade chicken vegetable soup yesterday. Whenever I'm not feeling very well, this soup always helps me feel better (plus it means I didn't have to cook, so that's always a bonus!
I decided to take this week off from blogging to recover from my cold and re-charge my batteries for the new year - I'll be back to regular blogging next week!
Until then, Happy New Year! I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!
