Christmas is Coming... the Fish is Getting Fat!!

Yes, you read that correctly! In Slovakia, we eat fish for Christmas! I am at my friend Mirka s house, spending Christmas with her family. I just got here today, but I already know it s going to be a great time!

Yesterday I had a Canadian Christmas lunch, where I made a 9kg turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, perogies, pumpkin pie... the works! I had to get up at 5am to put the turkey in on time... oi vay! But everyone had a good time, all the food is gone and so I can call it a grand success!

Merry Christmas!!!

Glad to hear that your Christmas package finally arrived and that you enjoyed the contents! I love my new purse and the kids love their new stuff as well. I'm also glad that your dinner turned out well - you must've gotten your great cooking skills from your Mom :)

- Love you, Mom
