We went back east for Christmas this year.  We were gone from mid-December until New Year's Eve.  It has taken me until now to get back into the swing of things.  The flu took me out for a day and a half of that, but aside from that, it has all just been family craziness.  I hope some of you can empathize.

In the past, a 2-week visit to Toronto would have been a revolving door of visits with old friends.  I would have packed our time with back to back visits.  Nowadays, with the kids, I try to do just one activity each day.  So, I knew that we wouldn't get to visit as many people as I would have liked.  As it was, we only got to visit with friends on 3 separate occasions.  I guess that's the way it goes during the holiday season!

One visit that I'm glad we manage to organize each time is a gathering with my engineering friends from UW.  This year, we even got out to Hamilton for Sarah and Darren to host, with their 3 wonderful boys - Cole, Connor and Emmett.  Thanks guys, and your house is gorgeous!

I'm glad that after almost 20 years, we can still sit down with each other, share some drinks and food and tell the occasional story about the good ole days...

Note: spouses and many kids are missing from this photo!
