Christmas Gatherings

We started our Christmas gatherings on the 16th and will be finished on the 26th. Here are a few pictures from the parties.Grandma and Grandpa VMS party was on the 22nd. The kids got spoiled by Great Grandma and Great Grandpa, Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle "Chunk" and Tanta Cor.


At the "big" Koomans party on the 16th Cailyn got a Dora Treehouse play set....which as you can see in the picture she staked her claim on it by sitting on it. And Jared got the Fisher Price roll around balls.
We opened our gifts tonight (after Cailyn had a shower....that's why her hair looks like that). Cailyn enjoyed the fact she also got to open all of Jared's gifts, but was nice enough to show them to him before she started to play with them. She also tried to open the gift for Jordan and was very upset when we told her no.
We had also bought the Word Whammer which didn't work. The batteries that came with it were dead, so brand new batteries were in it. The first letter would be whatever letter was in it first, unless you turned it off and on and put a new letter in - it would be that letter until you turned it off. One of the little sensors were pushed down and stuck. I returned to to Zellers without a problem (and no receipt) and got a new one (that works).

Trying to get a picture of the tree with lights on at night. It's hard to get a picture that does justice to how pretty a tree is lit up.

We have the Groenenberg party and Koomans party tomorrow, dinner at my brother's on Christmas day and last the "big" VMS party on Boxing day.

Looks like the kids are having a lot of fun - Cailyn especially... she's at the age now where she'll really start to have fun with all the festivities. Have a wonderful Christmas!
