359/365 - December 24, 2012 - Christmas Eve
Favourite part of Christmas Eve. The nights that we have dinners with the family changes, but one thing remains the same – The Night Before Christmas. Jeff’s dad reads it every year, and everyone tries their best to make it for story time. Even when traveling, phone calls are made so that all can hear the story.

Morning. Christmas involves a lot of back and forth, between my family and Jeff’s. We start the morning off with my family, where we open gifts and gorge on delicious food. At Jeff’s family’s place, we… open gifts and gorge on food. Pretty standard, now that I think about it! It’s hectic but awesome to spend so much time with family.

The dogs got to open their gifts first. Sophie was so excited that we couldn’t get her to sit before getting her treats.

361/365 - December 26, 2012 - Grateful
Grateful. I know that this is an odd picture for the theme of grateful… but it was a project made with gratitude! I made this sewing machine cover for my new sewing machine, that my parents bought me. They got me two things that I’ve wanted for a long time, but would have taken a long time to get around to buying. I was so lucky to have received so many thoughtful gifts from people this year. I hope that the gifts I gave made people as happy as I was!

363/365 - December 28, 2012 - Words
Words. I spent part of today marking poetry portfolios. I usually enjoy marking poetry portfolios, because there is so much variation. Baby Chalupa made it even more interesting this year…

366/365 - December 31, 2012 - Fun
Fun. My last picture! This is Deathblade. He’s not ours. We found him while we were walking. We were worried about him, what with all the cars on the road, the cold, the dark and all the coyotes that live nearby. He’s fat and fluffy and tagless. We brought him home to keep him safe and have posted information on the nearby vet’s facebook page, called the SPCA and posted signs in the neighborhood. It’s fun because it’s novel. This is the only way we can have a cat in the house – Jeff claims that all cats hate him and he hates all cats. Except for Deathblade, apparently. Maybe because Jeff named him Deathblade.
