More Christmas

I'm finally getting around to posting the rest of the pictures from Christmas! we spent Boxing day at Jeff's house and were able to visit with extended family and have lots of fun playing with cousin Kian. There were times I wasn't sure Kian quite knew what to make of his busy cousins but he was able to keep up with them.

Owen was sure interested in the chocolates that Leah won in the gift stealing game.

More gifts



The next morning we had my side of the family over for brunch. My brother had finally made it home from Ottawa and we wanted to exchange gifts with his family and cuddle baby Lexi! Owen and Noah were great with the baby and very gentle. Noah kept saying "hi baby" but wouldn't call Lexi by her name. Owen was happy to be able to hold Lexi but wasn't interested in holding her for very long, I'm guessing he wasn't expecting her to wiggle so much.

Christmas Part 2

After the kids napped we went to dinner at Maegan and Bill's house. It was great to see some extended family that we haven't seen for a while. Unfortunately we didn't get many family pictures, next year we'll have to be better at that!

One picture we did get was of Uncle Bill pretending to steal all of the dessert for himself. Owen takes everything so seriously and still asks why Uncle Bill was going to eat all of the dessert. So funny.


Grandma and Grandpa bought the boys Buzz Lightyear and Woody pajamas. Noah LOVES his buzz lightyear jammies, I think they are the only clothes he actually wants to wear. He runs around pretending to be buzz and the last couple of nights it sounds like he's trying to say "to infinity and beyond!"




We saved gift opening with my family until my brother came home a couple of days later.

Christmas Part 1

Owen chose the cookies for Santa and left the reindeer three baby carrots to fight over :) The other day we found a baby carrot in the backyard (left over from our melted snowman) and Owen thinks a reindeer must have dropped it while flying away.


As soon as Owen woke up he asked "Did Santa come already?" He could hardly wait to get downstairs to see his presents.


Here are a few pictures of the kids enjoying what Santa brought them. Noah was still a little unsure of what to make of things, but it didn't take long for him to rip open his gifts! Tearing the paper off the gifts was his favourite part I think.










A little candy after breakfast never hurt anyone :)

We had a great time celebrating Christmas morning with just the four of us! It was so relaxing and enjoyable not having anything to do except spend time together!
