Happy Boxing Day!

The day after Christmas is known as Boxing Day in Canada. It originated centuries ago when the wealthy would give their unwanted and extra boxes of gifts from Christmas to the lower social class. Now, it is SHOPPING HOLIDAY for post-Christmas sales! Needless to say, with all of the snow that we have, I will not be taking part in any of the Boxing Day Mall Madness this year. Instead, I am busy shoveling the driveway (for the umpteenth time), cleaning the house, and cooking a Christmas feast for all of Ryan's family so we can celebrate Christmas with them this evening. I'm sure I'll have many pictures and a few stories to post about that later!
I did manage to build a snowman for Reagan yesterday after I shoveled the back patio during the BRIEF intermission in snowfall!
