As dusk settled over Vancouver, we gathered with family to exchange and open gifts.
As a family who loves to eat and drink, the gifts often involve food, wine, coffee, tea and chocolate. Ules inherited some books from his cousin and has been deep into Farenheit 451 this boxing day morning.
We nibbled on blinis, smoked salmon and champagne.
N got a beautiful new salad bowl.
Peter got goat's cheese.
Grandma got a new teapot.
The BBQ turkey from Stong's was delicious.
There are usually Christmas crackers with gadgets, jokes, and paper crowns.
We had gluten free bird's nest cookies.
And a Christmas pudding blazing with cognac. There is always port. Sometimes it's nice when things don't change.
This morning we had French toast made with stollen on our new plates.
Wishing you all peace, love and joy from our family to yours.
