For the first time in 3 years, I actually spent the entire Christmas holidays, not in New York or Thailand, but at home! With a week off work from my excellent new job, I got to shop, eat, cram in some extra yoga classes and chill.
Funny, I ended up with Four Christmases; since the parents decided to jet off to London to visit the family last minute, we celebrated with presents on the 23rd, and lunch at the Westin on the 24th. Great food!
The 25th was an amazing Christmas dinner with Camille and her family (reminded me of old times). So great to have her back from the desert for Xmas! (And thanks for the great pics below, Camille!) The 26th completed Christmas week with Boxing Day marathon shopping from 8 am to 12 noon (we beat the crowds at West Edmonton Mall!) and a great dinner at Stephanie's mom's place.

Fittingly, Rishi, Rakhi and I also braved the theatre crowds to see Four Christmases, on the 25th. Definitely recommended; it's a lot more hilarious than expected!
Combined with several Christmas parties, including a couple great ones from work and Morgan's birthday party, it was a jampacked holiday season

I've never had this much fun at work! Coworkers & Rockband, nice!
New Years 2008 was a night of Oilers & World Juniors hockey and makeup artistry with Camille (check out our model shoots!), and drinks with Stephanie, Meghan and friends. Completely sober on New Years...gasp...am I getting old??
Below: Sapna & Camille, the last day of 2008. Guess I'll be in e-town another year or two. Happy New Year, everyone!
