Christmas in BC is very green and grey with accents of coloured lights. The holidays were filled with food and friends and family. My nephews are beautiful boys with warm characters, and good temper. Peter entertained us with his ukulele, his skills are much stronger then I would have believed possible. Jack is an artist with all of that art's passion, and his ability is immense. We shared lovely suppers and conversations and all the traditions of our family. We visited Butch's family as well and I was welcomed so warmly into every home, that I felt that I had always belonged there. We walked in the Langley parks and were refreshed by the soft mist rains of winter in BC. Then we watched the forecast and knew that we had to leave before the next round of snow hit the mountains. We left on the first day of the new year with clear skies and good roads to return home on.
