Christmas with Gord's family

Gord and I headed down to his parents' this morning to spend the weekend. His parents live about 3 hours away, about 30 minutes north of Belleville (east of Toronto). Ken, Gord's son who lives in Hamilton, came with us.

Minnie, Gord's mom, made an amazing supper ... turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mashed turnips, cranberries, pickles, beets, broccoli, corn and gravy. And triffle for dessert!

It was a nice family meal ... Gord and I, Minnie and Keith (Gord's stepfather), Ken, Judy and Doug (Gord's sister and her husband) and Jonathon (Judy and Doug's son who is home from Cold Lake, AB).

After supper, we opened gifts. Gord's family know us so well so give us gift certificates for Milestones and Tim Horton's and movie passes.

It sounds like you and your family had a very Merry Christmas. We (Skittles and I) did also.
