Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. How was your Christmas last week? Wonderful, I hope. We spent ours in our hometown of Montreal visiting family. Most of the day was spent at my brother and sister-in-law’s, but we did pop in to visit my mother and father-in-law, as well. It was a day filled with love and joy and laughter and lots of good food. Here are a couple of photos where you can also see my new (very short) hairstyle.

My younger daughter and I taking a shot with my father-in-law who is 88 years old!
Posing with my older daughter and her boyfriend. Both great kids that I don't see as often as I'd like!

I took a gazillion photos, so the memories of the day have been captured, and I can visit them again and again. That’s what Christmas is truly all about, isn’t it? The precious memories.

Now let’s get to the humour, shall we?







Wishing you all a beautiful day!

    1. I've never attempted to put anything on my cats. One of them would totally flip out; the other...not so much. But still. I'd rather not breach that trust :) Very exciting about you becoming a grandma! Such wonderful news!

    Sounds like you had a marvelous time. May the new year carry a similar theme :)

    1. Thanks, Linda. Time for a bit of a change. I hadn't planned on it, but sometimes being impulsive is fun.

  9. Great that you had a super Christmas with family. Quiet here but good. I like staying home for Christmas even when family doesn't visit as they are too far away.

    1. Being at home is always the best. If family was closer, we'd have them come here.
