The festivities have begun!

My side of the family had their Christmas party this past weekend, I love this shot of my cousin's little guy, dipping into the icing on our Xmas cake.

Savouring his find.

My Grandpa and Grandma M.



Superman and Jilly-bean inside our backyard igloo


I love this face!!

Santa's elves.


In a small community near us, we went to visit Santa and his reindeer. This oven still is operational, a woman still bakes bread in it and sells in to people who come to the park.


Santa and his reindeer named Bikey(grandson of Ruddy).He was just the most beautiful animal, the girls and I fell head over heels...




Handsome boy..


Test driving for the big night..
Celebrating a new Kenpo Karate belt, go girl!!

We had a very!! busy weekend, the weather was horrible but we didn't let that stop us!
We played outside in the igloo, went to a Christmas party and had a wonderful visit with Santa and his reindeer. We are enjoying the season...
