Today we are off to Montreal to celebrate Christmas with youngest daughter and family.   In past years we have gone down on the 24th and stayed until the 26th BUT this year we really want to spend some time at home celebrating Christmas with the lil one in our home....... creating our own Christmas traditions and memories.

I have been seeing a lot....... and I mean a LOT...... about charcuterie boards..... basically they're cheese trays filled with meats and fancy breads and cheeses and fruits.  Everyone helps themselves - making open faced sandwiches or anything they want I guess.  I've never done one before but it beats trying to organise umpteen different hot dishes.... and it's for lunch not supper.  So I have at least 4 different cheeses, smoked salmon, 4 different meats, strawberries, and grapes, and pineapple, 3 different breads, and crackers.  I have nuts and candies and 2 sweet trays.  


I get to drag it all down to Montreal and of course all the presents and then drag all the leftovers home again (cause we're going to Ottawa on the 25th to have Christmas with eldest daughter and leftovers will help with lunches) 

Life is good when it's filled with family fun over the holidays.
