Finally! Holiday Highlights ... Part 1

This Christmas holiday was filled with family, friends, fun and unfortunately ... flu!  It didn't stop us one bit!

They started with the 'children' getting together for a pre Christmas dinner.  Due to unforeseen circumstances,  most adults ate in shifts ... one even ate at Subway in the hospital cafeteria...

We had a good drive north and arrived in plenty of time to enjoy a lovely italian meal at our favourite Soo spot.  Shortly after, the beginning of the 'madness' began with an unfortunate 'incident' just as someone got in the car ... blech. 
That did NOT compare to using the empty McD Happy Meal box as a  'basin' in the mall food court on Christmas Eve.  That coupled with the coughing that continued to ensue meant someone got out of going to church this year!  
Cadence was ready for the festivities that followed, but donned her Christmas PJs in lieu of her Sunday best.  

Santa found us at Baba's the next morning bright and early ... wish we had gotten more sleep.  The stockings were filled ...

Hmmmm, Maplelea clothes????   But I don't have a Maplelea doll ......... yet!

Pop-a-matic pops the dice.  Pop a six and you go twice.

Check out the tongue ... it's a family thing ... seriously!  Here's the doll to put those clothes on ... yay!

Meet Leonie!

Santa even brought some pretty cool clothes.  We think Santa rules!

Mom and Dad found the best gift ... for Leonie.

Seems she had a little mishap on the way to Cadence ...

Sweet cousins ...

BFFs ...

It wouldn't be Christmas without polka time in Gigu's house!

Everyone wanted time with the 'baby'!

Day three ... it's game time!

Cheer's to the couch alliance!  And my surprize helper ... it was nice to have the extra hands!!
