Christmas Goodies

This year's Christmas was about relaxing and enjoy good times with family. Alice and Estelle are incredibly lucky to be so loved by their family and yet not too spoiled by it. They enjoyed all their gifts and also the time people spent with them, playing games, making cookies, watching movies...

Preparing Christmas baskets and Gran and Grandad's church in Morin-Heights

Treats for kids in the baskets

Decorating cookies Matante Janette brought from New Brunswick

Estelle showing Uncle Dave how it's done

Green, green, green on Christmas Day

A beautiful and challenging craft from Lynn and Paul

Like my stockings?!

Boxing day dinner at the Potter's with Olivia and Emma

Making ice cream with Mémé in Estelle's ice cream ball

Special treat!!! Gareth, Sarah and their girls paid us a visit just before New Year's. The six cousins hit it off so well and the "big girls" were enthralled with the newcomers.

Alice and Estelle trying to make her laugh!

This must have been a very special Christmas with so many of the family "home" for a visit. A year to remember.

And Estelle (with help) did a very nice job on the fabric fish. We had confidence that the fine motor skills of the children would make quick(?) work of the craft.

Have a great 2016, and we look forward to many more posts highlighting the travels and talents of your family.

Hugs to all,
Paul & Lynn
