Mark and I are off to Halifax on Wednesday where we will celebrate Christmas with his sister. Then we’re back on December 27 and will get together with my brother and sister-in-law at my place over December 29 and 30. I’ve had my house decorated for weeks yet haven’t gotten around to posting my annual photos. I have resurrected the rainbow Christmas tree forest (also known as the budgies’ playhouse) and lent Mark my artificial tree. We put his tree up on December 9, which must be a new record for Mark for early decorating. I put my forest up on November 18, the day before the Toronto Santa Claus Parade.
