Favourite Christmas Holiday Pictures

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I have enjoyed sleeping in everyday, and eating whatever I want. I wanted to share some of my favourite pictures and moments from the last week.

This first one was taken right after I surprised Joe and took him to the IIHF World Junior Canada vs. Sweeden Hockey game. I think I was just as excited to surprise him as he was to go to the game. We had great seats and had a great time!



While Joe and I were at the game, my mom and dad were babysitting. When we walked in the door, this is what we saw...



We didn't have a tree, so they got one for us and set it up with the girls while we were at the game. Thanks mumzy and daddykins!

On Christmas eve day, the girls wanted to go tobogganing, but we didn't have any sleds or crazy carpets. We went white trash style and made our own with a black garbage bag and cardboard!





My mom and dad came over Christmas eve. We ate some good food, sang some Christmas songs and read from the scriptures. It was a fun night.



Before I went to bed, I ended up watching the last half of one of my favourite movies, "The Sound of Music." Christoper Plumber is a very handsome young man!



Christmas day was so fun. I loved watching the girls open their stockings and gifts.







Hannah got some ballet dress up clothes and tried them on for me. These are the poses she showed me.





A couple days later we were in Waterton. It was like a ghost town there. It was windy and cold, and you had to drive to the fire hall if you needed to go to the bathroom, but the girls still had fun. We went tobogganing down this pretty steep hill. This picture of Hannah and her cousin Brynna was taken a little while before Hannah was crying from going down the hill with me. In her own words, "Mommy, why did you land on me and bonk my head? Waaaa!" We wiped out pretty good.



I love this one of Hannah on the swings in Grandma Julie and Pop pops backyard. She was on this swing everyday, multiple times a day. And she was always say, "Mommy, mommy, look at me, look how high I can go!"



The girls also loved to get out the painting stuff. They would sit and paint for a long time!



This last one is my favourite. Hannah found this rifle and was walking around asking everyone to put their hands up. Haha!



I am so happy that I have one more week to sleep in!

And, not to ruin your day, but did you know that Plummer is lip syncing? It is not his voice. I know, it disrupted my world too.

Really? Christopher Plummer was lip-syncing? I had no idea! Well! That certainly changes things for me . . . Cute blog Sarah. We had a lot of fun. Wish we had more energy. By then we were pretty pooped - especially Dad. It was great getting together and being with you. You, Joe, Taylor & Hannah are truly cherished by us. We love you!

Taylor looks like she was pretty excited about her presents on Christmas morning, so cute! And I love Hannah's poses, so funny!! That was so sweet of your parents to decorate a tree for you. Looks like fun, and I'm jealous you still have a week to sleep in. Jayna started back to school yesterday...back to the grind already.

I love it Sarah! And I've always thought that the Sound of Music man looked like Dad when he was younger. I thought you might comment on it youself. Tee hee! Glad you had a fun Christmas!
