Christmas 2016 Highlights

Christmas 2016 Highlights
Did this month disappear for anyone else? Feels like we just set the tree up. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. It’s been quiet on the blog because we’ve been enjoying some quality family time these past few weeks which has been wonderful. Every Christmas with the kids gets better and better, this was Cordi’s first year of really understanding what was going on and it was so much fun. She was insanely excited to meet Santa, and was excited every morning to find where the elves were hiding.

Christmas Eve they got to open a few presents from their far-away Grandparents as well as a couple movies (Finding Dory and Secret Life of Pets – both fabulous) and new jammies from their little elf friends, then we went over to my in-laws for the traditional munchie night – where we all make way too much food and have a few drinks. Christmas morning the kids rushed down to see what Santa had brought. We put on A Kitten’s Christmas and opened gifts, then packed up and headed over to my in-laws again for brunch, more festivities, and of course an amazing turkey dinner.

spring is here!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Sorry it’s been so quiet around here, it has been so busy and I haven’t had any time to put together content. I will find time this week though! Last week I had the pleasure of going on a field trip with Bobby’s kindergarten class to the Muttart Conservatory. They got to learn how to care for plants (specifically they one they got to take home), the stages of a ladybug, and then after looking at all the flowers, they got to release a ladybug. Bobby and his group named him Matt. Matt the Ladybug.

We got Bobby his first real bike (and Cordelia her first trike) and managed to go for a couple bikeride/walks. It’s so nice to be able to get outside and enjoy the sun after dinner now that it isn’t setting at 4pm. Bobby also had his first couple classes of Taekwondo and he’s loving it!0420-10420-20420-30420-40420-50420-60420-70420-7b0420-90420-100420-110420-120420-130420-140420-150420-160420-17

2014 christmas highlights

Happy 2015 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday season. Bobby got everything prepared for Santa’s arrival Christmas eve by saying goodbye to Elfie and putting out goodies for Santa and his Reindeer. Christmas morning the kids opened presents from Santa and my side of the family at home, Bobby was super excited for the stuffies from Grandma and Grandpa, and his new transformers from Santa. Cordelia loved everything – especially the wrapping paper.

After that, we headed over to my in-laws for brunch and more gift opening, followed by family time and a delicious turkey dinner. Boxing day the big guy came down with the flu, and then I did – so the rest of the holidays have pretty much been spent in our pajamas, but after a really hectic month, it’s been nice just hanging out at home.

The last picture is Bobby when he was 11 months, and Cordelia at 15 months – both on xmas day playing with the same can… and they both played with it for longer than any other toy that day!

What were your highlights this holiday season? Did you get spoiled? What did Santa leave under the tree for you?
