Henry's first Christmas concert


Full size
The 'itinerary' from Henry's first Christmas concert (which Natalia LOVED).


Full size
Our 'very serious' little Henry as his class got on stage for their three songs. Henry said that
he didn't want to smile or 'he'd start to cry'. I think he was a bit nervous.


Full size
Henry being extra serious with his bow tie.

The whole class actually in position to sing.

Walter was so excited to watch Henry's Christmas concert - "So good Henry" he said and then applauded
above his head like a madman.

Christmas fun


Full size
For Henry's birthday, he got a rocket toque and rocket gloves from Janet and Rick.


Full size
Henry recognized that the rockets on each hand were different and he had to show them off.


Full size
His rocket toque is now his 'launch toque' which he has to wear when we watch a launch like this Space X
Falcon 9 launch in my office.


Full size
Natalia has more creativity than I do so she made her own gingerbread houses with the boys using
mini milk containers.


Full size
Walter was quite proud of his creation prior to decorating it.

For his birthday Janet and Rick got Henry a 'ski resort' Lego set that is outstanding. The level of detail
is impressive (the ski coffee shop has cupcakes and hot chocolates) and Henry insisted on doing it himself
in a single day. He actually refused to eat supper until his ski resort was complete.


Full size
Henry and I made toilet paper magnet marble runs on the fridge.

Natalia made amazing poppycock this year.

Last year Crazy Carl got us a penguin snow form, which the boys love to use to make penguins around our yard.

Christmas with the Lynns


Full size
We got together with some of Natalia's family in Canmore this year, which seeing as Henry and Walter were the only
nieces/nephews present meant they got spoilt.


Full size
Henry got this sweet shark from his uncle Eric and aunty Adrienne that he quite liked.


Full size
Playing with the shark.

This was a hit - game from aunty Sus.

We played outside in the snow quite a bit over the Christmas break since the snow came in hard and fast
just before Christmas. Here I've buried Henry's torso.

Christmas at our house


Full size
After snuggling their Mom for awhile, the boys finally came down stairs at 8:30am to open their stockings
and their presents. But first, a dorky matching photo for Mommy.


Full size
Great book for Henry from his parents for Christmas. All kids need more patience.

Walter loved these puppet gloves that he got from Janet and Rick to go along with Henry's birthday present.


Full size
Very happy boy.
