With new year almost here, it's time to edit and sort through pictures from the holiday season. Without a working camera, and with a phone that's only taking so-so pictures, the quality isn't the greatest. Added to that is that, without a camera, I've been quite lazy about capturing memories and there are a number of faces that I wish were in this album that aren't. But even so, as I scroll through the month of December, I'm thankful for the joyful and festive times we've shared with our own children, with great grandparents, with friends stretching as far as Pickering to Oakville. :) Below, some pictures from early December as we gathered with loved ones.
