Getting ready for Christmas

Our elf Zert arrived on Thanksgiving and has been up to his usual silliness.  This morning he was trying to toast his marshmallow.  Might take a while!  
 We went to the Village to eat lunch and play a bit before visiting Santa. 
 Olivier ran up to Santa and was telling him about the expensive gifts he wants...!!
Here is a short clip of him talk to Santa about the drone he wants that is $130...

 Anna talked to Santa about the scooter she wants. 
Thank you Santa for the reminder to wear your helmet!
 And Mason told Santa about the 6 in 1 robot he wants. 
Talking about the robot.  
 Three happy kiddos! 
 They checked on the display of Santa with his reindeer before we headed home.

Christmas Parade Time

Tonight we enjoyed the local Christmas parade.  It is just enough of a parade to enjoy but not too long where you are hoping for it to end!  And another warmer year, in the low 60's.  It is raining now but the parade completed in time for everyone in enjoy!



A fun group of kiddos!  And Tobin's birthday too!

Thanksgiving

Today we enjoyed some well needed family time!  We went up the hill the kids and Matt checked out a few weeks ago.  We were all surprised at how warm it was so we quickly huddled in the shade.  


What an amazing view!
And Mason found this.  Seems fitting for where we were, and that it is Thanksgiving!
We went and visited with the Arnold's, and headed dinner with the Remillard crew.  It was a well needed family day!

8 years down!

This weekend we celebrated Olivier and Mason's 8th birthday!  Each year brings new adventures and fun and this last year has been no exception!  We had a family lunch on Saturday.  Complete with maple donuts.  

 And they were super excited to use their gifts!  Mason enjoyed making his moving sand display with April (supervisor Corbyn kept a close eye on the events). 
After going to the store in the late afternoon to use their birthday gift cards and dinner, the boys enjoyed working on what they got.  Olivier worked on his Batman motorcycle lego kit. 
 And Mason was super happy to play with his mini marble run. 
 This morning we had breakfast then gave them gifts from us.  Of course that meant we had a bunch more projects to work on!
