Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 15

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/unexpected-guests/

Welcome to Day 14 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure!  For today, the two topics I will explore are:

From the Christmas Postathon (https://4wallsnaroof.wordpress.com/2015/11/30/the-christmas-postathon/): Holiday cards

And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com/):  Tell us about your Christmas decorations and your memories of Christmases past.

Holiday Cards.  Cutting back.  I used to send Christmas letters and tons of cards, but this year I decided to only send to family and a few close friends.   Times have changed.

As for our decorations, most of them are either from our family’s (heirlooms and the like) or gifts from family and friends.  I am resolved this year to take pictures of all of them and to post them (I have already posted a few).   Just because.

Now, my brother and his wife are in town for a couple of days from Regina (and soon to be living in Ottawa), and yesterday I (Kevin was working) had lunch with them and mom and dad at Aura (at the Inn at Laurel Point), so I thought I would post a few pictures of our outing.

Walking there (the restaurant is in our ‘hood), I decided to take some pictures of the big constructions site behind the Legislature.  I am planning on shooting this location for a monthly picture next year to have a record of how it evolves.

Then I got to the restaurant.  Lots of pretty decorations and a gingerbread house display (most of those pictures have been saved for another post…)
