A Maritime Christmas

Christmas 2011 ~ our first Christmas in the Maritimes and also our first country Christmas.  The tree was much larger than anticipated after I ordered one around 5-6 feet.  The one that was delivered actually measured 8 feet, so we had to shorten it to get it in our living room ~ we had branches and sawdust everywhere!

I bought some new Christmas ornaments to adorn our tree during a visit to Halifax: Santa and Rudolph adorning a lighthouse with lights and Santa in a rowing boat full of gifts (sorry that the photo is a bit dark).

This country Christmas bauble is another new addition.

And how could I resist this adorable snowman and his gingerbread companion?  Let It Snow is one saying that we didn't need this year ~ we had lots of it and I will share some photos next time.

I finally started my Christmas Memories book, which I've been saving for far too long.  I've always intended to save memories from our Christmases, but never seemed to find the time.  After unintentionally wiping the hard drive of our computer this summer, I realise the importance of saving digital photographs.
