Christmas pictures

Here are some pictures from Christmas. It seemed to just fly by this year. We have spent the past few days relaxing and enjoying our new toys (aka: playing Wii non-stop). We also went sledding and took the kids to see the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Tomorrow we are going skiing (whee) I hope I remember how!

Naomi and the Big Guy

Love this picture, even though I forgot to bring some shoes for Naomi to change into (sigh). Believe it or not she was really nervous to sit on his lap. The promise of a sticker book and the fact that she just had to ask him for a Barbie camper helped to get her up there.

I have a new nephew!

Yesterday my brother and my S-I-L welcomed their second child, Isaiah Blake! Big brother, Hugo Kaleb, looks happy to be holding his new brother in one of their first pictures as a family of 4! I am so happy for them!!

2010 Olympic Torch Relay

A week ago the Olympic Torch Relay came through our neighbourhood on it's way to the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC. A huge party was held in its honour and we had so much fun! There was a huge stage with live dancers and musicians and Coke was there taking pictures of families holding one of the official Olympic torches - they were also passing out special Coke bottles with the Olympic logos and light up Coke bottles. There were food stations selling hot chocolate and other typical Canadian treats. What a fun event!

My little helper

Yeesh, it's Wednesday and I'm just getting around to posting about our weekend!

The princess and I made our first batch of Christmas cookies on Saturday. She was thrilled to get to wear her "cooker" again. Lol.

A generous helping of sprinkles ... lots of tasting ...

This is the "kids" tree upstairs just outside her bedroom door - she was such a good helper but I have noticed that several of the candy canes are already missing. Hmmmm...

More signs of Xmas upstairs ...

I always add a greenery garland here but this year I was feeling sparkly - the hubs is not loving it - he thinks it's tacky! Well, next year when he decorates the house for Christmas he can choose what he wants (as if). :o)
Update on the hammies - they have fur and look like hamsters now! They are ridiculously cute!
