Christmas Catch Up

We had an early Christmas on Dec.20. Which for anyone who knows me ... is no big surprise.
I've never been very good at keeping Christmas to just one day.
 
But this time I had a great reason.
We were heading off to visit these little cuties and their parents.
 
There had been some concern that Charlie wouldn't be comfortable with littles around ..... 
.... he was fine. These two had quite a lot of fun.
And unbelievably ... a brown Christmas. 
Leaf blowers and walks with no winter jackets?
Are we still in Canada?
Christmas morning brought presents that everybody loved.
And these are just a couple of gratuitous cute pictures of my niece and nephew.
You're welcome.
There was lots of room to get us all in at the new house ...
.. not just for this picture but also for all the sleeping, eating and playing we did all week.
Thanks for hosting OS Barefoots

I want to send out an official 'Congratulations'.
Welcome to the Family Ted. You fit right in.
 
P.S.
2006 versus 2015
Either my tree is shrinking or my kids are getting very big.

Game Night

Game On
We had some willing board game players join us this evening.
The more we played, the sillier we got.

Yup. There's that silly.

Me and the boys.
Tonight's picture reminds me of one that was taken quite some time ago.
We couldn't resist the urge to snap a Christmas pic of our Furry Friend.

Thursday Skills

After starting hockey in September A has really been working on his skills.
Yesterday was his big game before Christmas. 
And he scored to tie the game!!!!
 
E did a great job on the piano at his school's talent show.
I love that he chose to participate.
And the icing on the cake of a great performance .....
the performers took the stage to perform some Christmas Carols.
 
And if that wasn't a big enough day ..... 
we went to the new Star Wars movie last night.

Dinner Bell

We sat down for a family meal this evening.
Good cookin' mom.
 
There were, as always, a few chuckles to be had.

I love it when the cousins perform for us.
 
I'm a sucker for a group photo.
Little Sis' is old enough to drive.
And this afternoon she took me for a very safe and attentive drive. Thanks K.
