Christmas Holidays

School ended for the year and the holidays began...

"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" blasted over the speakers at the grocery store and it did...

Well, sort of. 

Okay, we improvised a little.

Grandpa and Grandma finally arrived and were immediately put to work; fixing stuff, cleaning, cooking..

Jayden worked hard too! 

Okay, it wasn't all work.

On Christmas Eve we decided to take the afternoon off and visit a hotel 3 km away for a bite to eat. 

3 kms? That should take about 5 minutes right? 

Wrong! One hour later we were still fighting traffic.

As we drove we made a stop to purchase our Christmas dinner.. (or maybe not)


Although it took an hour to get there, it was worth it! 

The hotel was quiet, peaceful,  and beautiful....

 The food was good too!

After lunch we explored the premises. 

On an outdoor lounge bed the two brothers giggled and played.

At the Christmas Eve service that night there was back row seating for babies..

When the sun had set and the sky was dark, candles were lit as we sang 'Silent Night'!

Dinner that evening was a potluck at a friend's house.

Sparklers and fireworks were part of the fun.

Tomorrow would be Christmas day...
