Happy New Year from Montreal! We've been having a terrific vacation so far and enjoying the time with family.
Here's a quick recap of the highlights so far. On Friday evening, I took the girls to see The Nutcracker, leaving Todd at home in an act of mercy. To be honest, I can't understand the annual enthusiasm for this work, but we did enjoy the performance, especially as our neighbours' kids were in the show, one in the role of Klara.
The next day, we left for Toronto and watched High School Musical on Ice. OK, I'll admit that I like High School Musical and I love ice shows, no matter how cheesy. Kate and Julia loved it too, and Todd ... well, he took his Blackberry out only a few times over the two hours. We stayed overnight in Toronto and managed to squeeze in a haircut for Julia before our flight to Montreal. Here's a photo of Julia with her new softly layered do. What do you think of the new look?
We spent a night at my parents' house and had an excellent dim-sum with my cousin Teresa and her family the next day. Then we continued on to my cousin Beryl's house, to stay with her, her husband Rob and their kids Emma, Amanda and Olivia. They spoiled us terribly with good food and drink and sent us on our way to Tremblant where we are now.
