So on the first day of Christmas, my true love and I flew to Ontario. We spent that night at Mom and Dad's.
On Day 2...Ron had a visit with his mom and I visited with mom and dad. We then drove to Jenn and Joe's and had a delicious dinner with them and the kids. We got to stay overnight at our wonderful friends, Howard and Hilda. It was such a great day!
Day 3....we picked up 4 out of 5 kids!
The van was full of fun and smiles and off we went to Niagara Falls. We checked into the hotel and then went for a walk, saw the falls, the lights and experienced Clifton Hill.
Abby always wants to hear a good spooky story so Grandpa thought he had a great idea.
Apparently, she would prefer hearing the stories than living through them. They only lasted a few seconds in the haunted house.
Day 4....We started off with a great breakfast enjoying the view of the falls.
Day 5 - We had a slow start to the morning due to Sarah not feeling the best. We did some Christmas shopping and then went to the Scott's for a wonderful lunch and a great visit.
Just when we got on the road poor Abby got sick. We drove to Burlington and checked into the hotel and had a quiet evening with our poor little one.
Day 6 - We drove to Agincourt Church and the kids went to children's church while Ron and I enjoyed the adult service. After church we checked into the hotel and then went down town Toronto. First on the Go-Train.
Day 7....Zoo Day! Nobody got sick!
Day 8 - We had breakfast with Howard and Hilda and then drove to Sharbot Lake to visit some of our good friends there. We did a little bit of Christmas shopping and then met Jenn and Joe for supper. After that we had tea with Roxane and Denis.
On the 9th Day of our Christmas....my true love had the flu. He was out for the count. We spent the whole day around mom and dad's. He was pretty sick.
Day 10....Ron got back to the land of the living. He got groceries for his mom and took her shopping. Mom and I went to Kingston and shopped and stayed overnight there. We spent some time in the pool and hot tub.
Day 11 - Jenn met us in Kingston. We shopped and had lunch. Ron met up with his good friend, Percy for breakfast. Ron and I reunited in the afternoon and packed up our things and drove to Frankford. I missed out on the flu but I picked up a cold. We had a wonderful evening with Rick & Thelma, Al & Donna and Cheryl. We spent the night there.
Day 12 - After a great breakfast we headed off to Toronto. We would give this private Air B&B a 5 Star Rating! We landed in Calgary around 5:00 and got home in time to watch the 3rd period of the hockey game.
Since then I have been still holding onto this cold and I shared it with Ron! That was our 12 days of Christmas and in 12 more days we can start our Alberta Christmas!
