Here are some Christmas photos from hosting in Cochrane in 2013.


Full size
Henry in his car seat wearing a cute hat my aunty Eileen made.


Full size
My sister Danielle bought Henry a 0th birthday cake from Dairy Queen. Natalia was pretty
excited.


Full size
If you exclude Natalia's friend Erin (who grew up with the Lynn girls), my sister Danielle was
the first family member to meet Henry.


Full size
Natalia and Henry enjoying some feeding time.


Full size
Natalia's grade partner from last year, Janice, came for a visit just before Christmas.


Full size
Henry and I hung out watching his first Penguins game at home.


Full size
Natalia's second cousin came for a visit with her parents, also just before Christmas.


Full size
Here are Natalia's cousins Rick and Shawna, along with Henry.


Full size
Henry's maternal grandfather Carl got to have his first snuggles.


Full size
My mom was VERY excited to get to hold Henry for her first snuggles. I took her on a long tour
around Cochrane after picking her up at the airport, just to delay the suspense longer.


Full size
Here he is with his eyes a bit more open.


Full size
Natalia put a LOT of effort into making sure we had a pretty serious treat table during the
Christmas season. I think she made something like 12 different baking items!


Full size
Grandpa Carl holding Henry.


Full size
Aunty Maria holding Henry. Maria and Susanna made the trip down from Edmonton before spending
Christmas in Saskatoon.


Full size
Here's Natalia with a monkey swaddler that Henry received.

Natalia and I holding Henry.


Full size
Nati's friends Rudy and Cara were in town from Winnipeg and stopped in as well.


Full size
My mom took this photo of Rudy, Cara, Natalia, Henry, and I.


Full size
I think this blanket is a little on the sparkly side.


Full size
Natalia and Christmas blanket with Henry.


Full size
Grandma Gerri and Henry, while he's awake.


Full size
We decided to be a little non-traditional and have KFC for Christmas Eve.



Full size
Christmas morning was quieter this year with just Nati, my mom, Henry, and I. Here is the handmade
wood jewelry box I got for Natalia.


Full size
My mom's luggage has had a pretty rough life (see Alaska stories...), so Natalia and I got her
a new piece of luggage for Christmas.


Full size
We elected to have Perrault Christmas a little later this year since my brother and his wife were
leaving right from Calgary to their 'warm house' in Palm Springs. Here's my nephew Luc along with
baby Henry.


Full size
Natalia, Luc, and Natalia's birthday cake (again, Blizzard cake from DQ).


Full size
A bit blurry shot, but a funny one of my nephew Luc in a chicken suit that he loves a lot.


Full size
Here's my nephew Landon playing with a truck. He was more interested in most of the packaging
than any of the presents.


Full size
Luc got a new outfit for Christmas from aunty Renee - either a dragon or a dinosaur, not sure which.


Full size
Luc loves the new suit and he's making aunty Renee laugh here.


Full size
Here is Luc opening his new drum set.


Full size
I think Landon's penguin sweater is super cute.


Full size
Last year, my brother Denis made me a 'Tree of Life', which is quite nice. However, I thought
that it was appropriate for him to have it next. He wasn't that impressed.


Full size
Equally unimpressed was Denis as he's assembling Luc's drum set.


Full size
This set was MUCH quieter than the one I wanted to get him.


Full size
Leah thinks the set is pretty fun for our musically-talented nephew.


Full size
My mom got new gloves for Christmas.


Full size
Natalia got a new coffee mug with photos of Luc on it.


Full size
Here's Luc in our basement trying out the drums.


Full size
He definitely likes to make music.

Full size
Natalia made gingerbread cookies for Luc to decorate.


Full size
A Christmas family photo of the Perrault family at Christmas 2013.


Full size
Christmas dinner was turkey with all the fixings. Here's my mom working on something
on the stove.


Full size
Denis carved the turkey this year and did a bang-up job.


Full size
Leah and Danielle enjoying a Christmas beverage.


Full size
The spread for Christmas. Yummy!


Full size
My mom along with Henry, Luc, and Landon.


Full size
A photo where you can actually see Henry's face with the boys around the tree.


Full size
Natalia's friend Suzanne came to meet Henry as well.


Full size
My sister Danielle came back for more snuggles as she brought my mom back to Cochrane.
