{Christmas 2010 - Mainland Edition}

Phew......Christmas of 2010, over?


How did that happen?


Guess that means I should get around to posting about it before Christmas 2011 is here......
We spent our Christmas with the MaC clan across the water the weekend before Christmas. We were able to make it out on the Thursday night and stay until Sunday night and made every moment we had with our family together count. Friday morning, Trev and my FIL and Denay surprised J&C at J's Christmas concert (see first collage, lower center photo) while I chilled at home with my MIL. Just after then got home we had a completely useless and pointless session with a photographer from Canadian Baby Photographers (during which he failed to snap a single frame). The girls napped then it was off to Vancouver for dinner at the Spaghetti Factory and a ride on the Stanley Park Bright Nights Christmas Train. Trev and I sat with all the kids at it was so fun watching their wonder at all the lights. Saturday we had brunch, paid a visit to Great Grandma Rosie, did a teensie bit of shopping and then spent the evening doing absolutely nothing.
Sunday was church, roast beef lunch and "Christmas"......it was so nice having everyone all together laughing and chilling.

Denay got an adorable My Little Pony set from Uncle P, Auntie S and C & J, a rocking horse from Uncle J and Auntie L and a piano with a microphone from Grampy and Grammie.

All the kids got my MIL a black and white canvased photo of us and the g-babes....Shawna used a groupon coupon and got a smokin' deal on it and it turned out so great!

Good times, good times.....
