We got back last night from our trip to Toronto to see Adam & Alicia. We had a lovely weekend helping them decorate their house and tree.
Isn't it cute?
We also went to the Christmas markets in the distillery district. They have these all over England and Europe and I have always wanted to go. It was a lovely evening even if it was cold! But Alicia and I bought matching mittens to keep our hands warm, as my leather gloves just weren't cutting it. I even bought a hat!
Very European even down to the cobblestones!
It was the first night of the markets and they lit the tree while we were there. Over 150,000 lights!
Carollers roamed the streets in costume.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
Had some hot chocolate to warm us up. We all look quite padded up in the cold don't we?!
And finished the evening off with some good English Fish, chips & mushy peas at a restaurant Adam discovered which makes the real article!! Then it was back to their place for a couple of games of Settlers of Catan (one of our family's favourite board games!)
I will be choosing a winner for my giveaway tomorrow, so check back.
