when brian was younger, he & his siblings would always open the presents from grandma finken on Christmas eve. so this Christmas, the grand babies all opened their presents from grandma thomson on Christmas eve, to carry on the tradition.
|ollie loves his new cars & race track.|
we were sure that joviah would be the first one awake on Christmas eve, but when ollie woke up at about 7:30, we found uncle daniel upstairs. the four of us waited for everyone else to wake up.
i decided to introduce brians family to one of my henrie family Christmas traditions. on Christmas morning, we also eat yuletide log. it is a cheese, bacon, onion mixture melted onto homemade dinner buns. so yeah, it's the most delicious thing ever. i mean that. ollie got his first taste of yuletide log this Christmas, too!
it was so fun to be with the butchikes for Christmas. besides being a little run down with sickness, joviah & tadeo were so excited & happy and baby marcus is almost edible. he is so cute & chubby. we love them all.
i love these pictures of tadeo opening up his favourite movie, despicable me. he was pretty pumped!
joviah got a pair of ruby slippers from grandma, along with tickets for all the girls to see the wizard of oz at globe theatre! i love the globe theatre in regina, and was so happy to see a play while we were there. it was wonderful!
brian was really happy with his gifts, too!
|he loves lego. a lot.|
|ollie with his ollie book!|
|ollie with his new drum & balls from uncle daniel.|
|the aftermath! whoa.|
|Merry Christmas from ollie & marcus. these two are more than 7 months apart, but only a few pounds separates them!|
|always climbing the stairs.|
|"no, daddy! don't kiss me!"|
|all the grandbabies that were there, including cassies belly. she's due in june!|
