On the 9th and 10th day of Christmas…

… my true love gave to me…

10 years of celebrating Christmas together! It has been 10 years since Matt and I started dating, and in fact just 10 years and 11 days ago, we went on our first official date.  (An NHL game – Ottawa vs Montreal, while I was living in Ottawa.) 

It has also been 9 years of living together with our own tree.  Here are a few pics of us at Christmas over our years together. (prior to 2003, we didn’t have a digital camera, and I don’t have a scanner at home.)


{we had just moved into our house - not a lot of decor... but there was a bow!}




somehow in the excitement of planning our trip to Seoul we forgot to take a picture.  I think that’s a good enough reason.


and soon enough we will have a 2010 picture!
