What I liked the most about the past Christmas family break ( girls are still on a break, Andrzej is not ) is that we made an effort of enjoying outdoor everyday. It put us in better shape and much better spirit. And we slept better too :)
From a walk along a bay...
... during Christmas season are beautiful enough to make people forget about waiting hours in bad traffic and wanting to see them. We had a lot of time, but at some point Andrzej was ready to turn around. That how bad it was.
But he did not, and we got to enjoy walking on the grounds of La Sallette shrine and admiring this awesome festival of lights!!!
...I and Andrzej celebrated our Twenty First wedding anniversary. I hope that we will be blessed with twice as many years together still!
We did not get away for an overnight trip. It should come in a couple years.
I feel lucky to have Kateri old enough to babysit for a couple hours. We were able to have a date evening !
But during the day was all family, and since we had promised Zuzanna to visit Bass Pro Shop, we took a trip "up north".
Well I have to say , that I did not know that this place is so much fun and does not require shopping.
On the other hand one might suddenly develop a need for some hunting/winter camping/ice fishing experience !
We did not do that, but instead enjoyed a walk in cranberry fields right behind the store.
It was very refreshing and lovely .
Due to a broken oven door, for the first time ever we had to rely on bought (sic!) buns for breakfast.
On the other hand, it did not make much difference.
After a later delivery, the new functioning oven is in process of baking St. Lucia Wreath for tomorrow breakfast. Who says we can't do it twice ???
