We stopped for New Year's brunch in Waterloo on the way home from Wellesley to catch a little more time with Karen, Jan and baby Fiona before they went home...to Switzerland.
It was really great time with family, and Elizabeth got in one more piano practice with Great Aunt Joanne! Elizabeth and Matthew had a blast playing peek-a-boo on the stairs with Uncle Marc, who they agree should visit us more often in Ottawa ;)
We even made it home to Ottawa in time to ring in the New Year with the kids before their bedtime. I was amused the following morning by the number of my friends who posted on Facebook that they were going to bed just past 11 o'clock - clearly many of us have small children and the priority has shifted to maximizing sleep! We were in bed not long after the kids, but I'm sure it was midnight somewhere!
