Oh Christmas

A sleep-in and present opening made for a lazy morning before we headed out to Almonte.
 
The table looked beautiful .....

... and then it looked full of people and food. Ha-ha.
Granny had an evening of fun activities planned and we were all giggling

There was a rousing game of charades. We had so much fun I can't remember who won!
K was a great sport and let the boys decorate her as a Christmas tree.
She has a lot of patience for her nephews!!

And the performers of the group had has laughing with their prepared skit.

If the Benny is turned up then the dealer's team are automatically the makers....huh?

I don't think GrandpaT knew what he was getting himself into when he offered to teach us how to play euchre. 
The rules for this game are absolutely random! 
M and A were in stitches watching Ern and I learn the game.
Thank you for being a patient teacher GrandpaT.
 
Today was M's eye surgery. So next time you see him .... no glasses.
