A Week of Celebrations

Last week this time we were at our son's graduation.  It was an exciting time seeing him accomplish his goal.  The smile on on his face showed us that all his determination has paid off.  It was a proud moment for us.  After the ceremony we went to a grad dinner and it was nice to meet some of his classmates who have become his good friends.

On Monday we headed to our son's  for the night.  We had a simple turkey dinner and played some games.  It was an early Christmas celebration.  The next day we went into the city and bought a gift for the graduate and then went to the Japanese Village for lunch.  It was a delicious meal and a wonderful experience.  They cook the meal right in front of you.
Last night Ron and I went to the Trochu Arboretum and Gardens Christmas light display.  It was a beautiful night.  We walked the path through 9 out of 12 days of Christmas.  Each year they add a few more days so we will have to go back next year to see if they have made it to the 12 days.  We sipped on hot chocolate and listened to Christmas music.

Today I went out for lunch with a friend while Ron started back to work.  I'm waiting for Rachael to arrive so I can enjoy another cup of tea.  Our boy is starting work today so we will celebrate Christmas with him in a few days but his animal farm will be here with us.  Hopefully we will get to FaceTime with Jenn and the kids but I am sure there is lots of celebrating there with four little ones.

Merry Christmas from Ron and I!
