It's All About Family...

What a great week-end we had!


spoiled ~ spoiled ~ spoiled


dinner for 9 gathered round the table


my girls
Sam & Kat

This year we welcomed 3 more into the family 
with my brother's girlfriend and her 2 daughters


this is Alayna with Mom


and cute as a button Ceara


my brother Gord and his girlfriend Tammy.

Christmas eve was a productive day
getting a few things done ~ running some last minute errands
then back home to eat ~ then off to church

I love our service on Christmas eve

then everyone came back here for some food and drink
and some laughs too

Christmas Day was incredible
everyone pinched in to help with dinner and the dishes

then it was off to the inlaws for more gifts and food
we are blessed to have these wonderful people
in our lives.

Boxing Day was relaxing ~ got dressed in time to go
back to Trev's parents for turkey dinner ~ round 2
ding ding!

Yesterday we did a little shopping
and a little visiting
then came home to veg on the couch

Back to work today
hot turkey sandwiches for supper tonight
and the turkey stock is simmering on the stove
as I am going to try my hand at making fricot tonight

wish me luck!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
