New Year's Eve at O Bistro in Canmore...

...with Bonnie and Bob

Christmas in Calgary this year. After a yummy Christmas Eve dinner of Chinese food at Cam and Michele's, we stayed at Pam's Dad's place, the location of the family festivities. Christmas Day started with coffee and Baily's and then we dug into our stockings and gifts. That was followed by a yummy brunch and our annual Christmas Day run. A bit chilly at -22C but we bundled up and it turned out to be a beautiful day for a run through Glenmore Park. Christmas dinner was turkey with all the trimmings. All in all, a day full of excess, just like Christmas should be!

Christina and Nikki arrived on Dec 27, luckily it had warmed up by then. Everyone gathered again at Lloyd's to help him celebrate his 78th birthday. It's getting easier all the time for him to shoot his age golfing!

We finished off the season back in Canmore where Bonnie and Bob joined us for New Year's Eve. We had a wonderful dinner at O Bistro and watched the fireworks from our condo. Plenty of port to go around!

Bye, Bye 2012!
