Christmas Celebrations

I finally downloaded our Christmas pics, so here are a few highlights:
1. Skating/Hockey with the Turcatos (my Aunt Anne's family) in Taber on Christmas Eve
- Elijah was not a fan of the cold or wearing his gloves. Not a good combo
- Brian loved it
- Hadley skated (sort of) for the first time

Hadley playing hockey with uncle Mike and Gramma Freeze

Brian's sporting Hadley's 2007 snowpants......he doesn't seem to mind

The Brians

We were about to leave and Hadley was sad that she didn't get to go on the sled (pulled by a quad), so John asked my uncle for a ride. He's so nice. Hadley and Brian loved it. Elijah was not a fan so he didn't join the fun.

2. A visit from Santa (aka Grampa Santa) at John's parent's house.

3. Nativity and Star Birthday cake at my parent's house
- Elijah was not a fan of dressing up like a shepherd so he is MIA once again

They were so reverent. Brian almost sat there the whole time. I was impressed.

4. Christmas morning at our house


John (aka Santa's helper) made this cute little giraffe for Hadley. He carved it and the plan was to have Grampa Santa give it to Hadley on Christmas Eve, but I forgot about it and left it safely hidden at home, so Grampa Santa just told Hadley to look for it in her stocking...whoops.....

But Elijah IS a fan of the chocolate! The smile is great.

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas, thanks for posting the pictures.

I loved the pictures. Looks like you had a great Christmas!
Sorry I couldn't come to your shin-dig. After I found out I'd missed it, I was disappointed! Count me in next time!
