On the 6th and 7th day of Christmas….

My true love gave to me…

a super busy weekend.

Saturday I had to work – and it was slooooow… I guess everyone was out doing their holiday shopping or drinking egg nog – not in the library browsing books. When I got home some neighbours were over for an impromptu dinner and then Nate, Matt’s brother and his wife came over too – so turned into a little party! We had a few drinks and had a good time.  But that didn’t leave much time for blogging :).  Santa did however bring me a lovely early Christmas gift on Saturday… COLDPLAY TICKETS! The concert isn’t until July 27th, but I’m glad we ordered early (although within 20 minutes the Tuesday show was pretty much sold out.  The show in Toronto on the 26th sold out before the tickets really ever got on sale, so luckily they added a Tuesday show). Our tickets are beside the stage on the first level.  Can not wait! If they were as good as they were 2 years ago it is going to be one heck of a show!

Sunday brought us a lazy morning full of cartoons and playing with toys.  We even got a little snow! Alex and I watched The Smurf Holiday special – talk about flash back! It was the same one I watched 30 years ago… yikes, aging myself again. We also had our first family Christmas party at Nate & Heather’s place. It was so nice to see everyone again and food…. so much and so good…. I’m not doing so well “Get off the Couch” ladies (by the way – if anyone wants to join our little healthy living encouragement group on Facebook let me know).

It was quite a shock to learn about Kim Jong Il’s death before going to bed last night. I am praying his son will be a better leader and bring peace to the Korean peninsula.

Not a lot of pictures this weekend, so I’ll share the Coldplay Christmas Lights video.


P.S. – if you haven’t done it yet – go to Google and type in “Let it Snow”… love those fun little things!

  1. I love a spontaneous party – they can often be more fun that parties that are planned ahead of time. Also, that’s cool about the Coldplay tickets! I would love to see them sometime. I’m interested in the “Get off the Couch” group; I can use all the help I can get in that regard!

  2. A spontaneous party is the only way I will probably ever have one… now how do I plan that?! 😉 I’m so glad you got the tickets! That’s awesome!

    And I’m not doing well either… I’m stuck on the couch! Have you noticed my lack of posting there?! Yikes.

  3. Thanks for posting the Christmas Lights video – just what I needed tonight before I hit the sack 🙂 And I am so excited that we both got tickets to see Coldplay this weekend! I guess I am the lucky one since I only have to wait until April to see them play. Should be awesome.
