Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas a couple days late! I thought I'd share a bit of what I did over Christmas. Our family escaped the cold in Arizona for a week! We had lot's of fun discovering new hiking trails, swimming, shopping, and of course, eating! I had planned on coming home with hundreds of photo's as usual, but was surprised only finding around 50; we had clearly been busy! My grandparents winter in AZ, so it was great to catch up with them as well, while playing games and hiking.

Ticket To Ride has become one of my family's favourite games this fall and we played many games on our trip. This game was recommended to us by a friend, but we had trouble finding it in stores. Eventually we gave up and just bought it on Amazon.  I love it and was surprised that it isn't really sold anywhere but online. There is two versions, the European and the US. While they are both super fun, the European is a harder version. Either of the versions make great gifts!

My grandma had bought me this card for Christmas and I love it! The little reindeer sticking out the side killed me! 

The inside was also great!

My birthday is Dec. 26th, and to celebrate, we bought cinnamon buns for breakfast!  My Dad and I are cinnamon bun fanatics and are on the constant search for a good one. This one from C3 Kitchen in the Scottsdale Quarter definitely fit the bill. In fact, it was placed as second on our list after Grounds For Coffee cinnamon buns in Vancouver, BC! The frosting was divine and the bun was soft and moist.

Midafternoon naps were definitely on Angus's schedule after getting home from doggie daycare. He was wiped!

My Dad had the wonderful idea of giving jars with an adjective for each night. It's a really thoughtful homemade gift!

My sister loved this cute card!

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
