It seems that every year Christmas gets a bit more complicated and stressful. My brother and his wife have moved to Kitimat in the last while and so we see them once a year or so, and my parents live on Vancouver Island so we don't see them as often as I would like either. This makes buying Christmas presents increasingly difficult, I really do love buying presents for people, but I hate giving people generic gifts, or things that they may have already.
This year is the first year that Dayna and I will be hosting Christmas at our house. We're going to her parents house on Christmas Eve, and then coming back home later that night. My parents are staying the night at our place, and Pete & Sara are coming Christmas morning. We went out and bought an artificial tree (Strata rules don't allow real trees) and Dayna's been stocking up on decorations. Hopefully all goes well! I can't wait for rum and eggnogs!
