Tracie, Sal, Ben and Ethan celebrated Christmas in our own home, just the 4 of us this year. It was a nice change.

We told the boys all about Santa for weeks leading up to Christmas, saw all the hype in the shops and around the neighbourhood and by the time Christmas was here, the boys were very excited for Santa to come!

On Christmas Eve, (while Sal was at work) Tracie and the boys made cookies for Santa. Then later (after Sal got home from work) we decorated them together.


Christmas morning….. Santa came (they must have been good boys this year)

Parking garage – a BIG hit!tn_IMG_4054tn_IMG_4059tn_IMG_4067tn_IMG_4075tn_IMG_4079The alphabet game on the fridge. The boys did not know any letters before this game. Now (2 weeks later) they know about 3 letters each. They play with it every day. We haven’t really tried to teach them letters yet, they are just picking it up.tn_IMG_4083tn_IMG_4084tn_IMG_4091

Christmas morning was great fun. We did a baked chicken and vegetables for lunch, and I ate too much!

Christmas afternoon I, (Sal) went to work, while Trace and the boys had a quiet afternoon at home playing with new toys.
