Merry Christmas everyone

The past few days have been quite busy around here, so the Christmas wishes are a little late. We had a wonderful Holiday as a family this year. Christmas Eve we headed over for a visit with J's grandfather, and then to my mothers for her annual Christmas Eve party.

Christmas morning we opened our gifts, had a little breaky and got ready for dinner.....I took a little trip out to Manotick to have a quick Christmas visit with my dad, and then came back to the house to finish getting ready.

We hosted Christmas dinner for both our immediate families this year - J's parents, my mom and my brother and his family. As you can imagine, with 3 toddlers running around it was quite the busy house, and poor Alana was bored out of her's tough being the only older one.

Dinner was delicious (if I do say so myself); after everyone left, J and I watched A Christmas Carol, and both fell asleep on the couch......

I will post a few pictures later

hiding spots

Julien has a new hiding spot

The linen closet.....I was in the bedroom and could hear him chattering away, and when I went to find him Icouldn't....then the chattering started again and I opened the door to find this......

The Christmas season is upon us

Now that we have entered into December, my house is all ready for Christmas. Hubby and I got the house decorated on Monday while Julien was at my moms place. When he came home on Tuesday, I think all the lights scared him a bit.....but by Wednesday he was pretty into the the trouble starts trying to keep him out of everything!!! Here are a few pictures

Christmas Tree

There are lights all the way up the tree, but we have a box that you hook each strand up to and they go randomly, which is why it looks like the bottom is not lit

Julien exploring the ornaments

Mmmm Christmas goodies

Well, last weekend was the start of my baking marathon. We managed to get all of our cookies baked, and even got started on the squares......all this with Julien underfoot! Here are a few pictures
