All of the kids have been enjoying Henry's kitchen. He is so cute pretending to eat food and sharing it. He is so young to be play acting already.
Katie got the perfect toy for her. You press down on it and it starts scooting across the floor at full speed. She loves following it.
Rowan has been in love with planes since last summer. He got an aircraft carrier and 3 of the planes that go with it.
Traditional Christmas Breakfast out
Not so traditional, this year it was at IHOP.
Henry and his parents :)
Jess and their goofy eldest son.
The newlyweds C & C
Krystle and Hayden
Table for 20. Don't know how many more we can add and we'll have to get a banquet room for ourselves at some restaurant.
Aunty Coco and her Mother-in-law made pajamas
Courtney and Joanne sewed flannel pj pants for each of the kids. They did such a nice job! This picture of the 6 kids doesn't show off the fabrics so well but they fit the kids personalities perfectly.
A special little surprise
Logan's Grandmum sent a package and tucked in a couple of silk scarves for the girls. Genevieve and Danika are planning on wearing them for special occasions as shawls but today they were super hero capes. What a special surprise. It was so thoughtful of Sally!
Heading to Zoo Lights
There was some typical pushing and tussling in the entryway before we loaded up and headed out. They still are so cute all bundled up for the cold and rain.
Traditional stop to take a picture. Wyatt is being less than cooperative and is standing behind Cherise. Har stayed home with the baby, who had the sniffles.
Baby's first Christmas train ride! Her brother is an old pro.
Krystle and Nate met up with us for hot chocolate and then did their own train ride and tour of the lights.
Wyatt and Genevieve stopped by the concert lawn.
Rowan and Danika got the royal coach to ride in. Danika is always referring to Rowan as her "prince". It drives my boys crazy because they think she really believes she is a princess. I do believe all little girls are.
I love all the lights! I could have done without the pouring down rain but one good thing about going there tonight. Great parking, no line for the train and a wide open walkway that you can keep track of your whole group easily. Next year I want my Hubby with me. It's a magical place for a wintery date.
