COVID Christmas with just our family this year.

I'm not totally sure why Henry is posing with an 'O' face here, but this is how our matching
boys got up for Christmas morning. After they snuggled their Mommy, since that's how she instructed
them to start Christmas morning.

Henry was most excited not to open his presents or his stocking, but to give this to his Mommy
and Daddy for Christmas.

Opening stockings with their presents out.

Opening presents. We let them open one at a time and made sure each of them saw the other's
presents before opening theirs.

Henry's new Roller Coaster game was definitely a hit, judging by his face here.


Full size
Playing with Henry's new remote control car. We'd open presents, then play for a bit, then
eat, then open a few more presents. It was after 1pm and we still hadn't finished presents
however, we only really started at 8:30am, which was a blessing!

More RC car work.

This was actually the ONLY thing Walter asked for - Lucky Bear. He was SOOOO excited to get it!
And, he also got a green coin to go with it, so he was over the moon.

I got a skidoo jacket from my sister Renee, which is a shout-out to when I lived with a lady
during university and she and her boyfriend were called (by my friends) 'Skidoo Mullets'.

Digging tunnels in the forts outside our house.


Full size
Natalia and Walter making snowmen. The big snow dump we got the week before was more consolidated
snow and less wet snow so Natalia improvised and made snowman sculptures.

Our ham dinner for Christmas dinner. Note the ham sauce (my Aunty Colette's recipe), and the
yam casserole (my friend Paul D's recipe that I found out on this night was actually his wife's
mother's recipe and he just didn't tell me!). So, even though we had to have dinner with just
our family, at least we had people over via their recipes!
