Merry Christmas, one and all!

Merry Christmas to everyone,
near and far...

Seems funny that we are ALWAYS surprised how quickly this time of year creeps up on us! But come along quickly it does. Once Remembrance Day is finished, it's a quick bob-sled ride into Christmas!!

We were lucky to have my Mom, Nadyne, here for a few overnight sleep-overs. She is always good for a party! Josh, Kathy, Gus & Jasper were here for dinner and a great time on Christmas Day. We loved it.....Unfortunately, Teagan, Shawn & Rudy were not able to make it down. A little too far and too many mountain ranges to cross safely for just a few days.....someday.


Putting Grandma Nadyne to work.....

A bit of orange juice with our sparkly, breakfast wine

Sheesh, Grandma was right, it IS half my size!!!
Nothing like an audience.....

But look who took over??
Gus is on a stool and is taller than Great Grandma Nadyne...

One huge turkey leg, one small boy.....
One smaller boy and one huge plate of food!!

Talking to Auntie Teagan, Uncle Shawn & Rudy.... 
Here's our wee, little man, Rudy. Already 6-1/2 months old.
Teagan, Shawn & Rudy

And then back to Grandpa & Josh playing
with Gus' Magna Tiles on Christmas Day!!

and then it came to this.....
Phew....that was a busy time but VERY enjoyable!! Love Christmas time but it is always nice to get "back to normal", whatever that is with us! 
We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or what ever you choose to celebrate. Let it be with love, family and friends.......
Thought for the Day:  A beautiful heart can bring things into your life that all the money in the world couldn't obtain.
