Christmas & Boxing Day 2008

Wow, did I take my sweet time getting these posted or what. I think it's taken me this long to recover from the whirlwind of the holidays.

As you can tell by the darkness outside the window the boys didn't sleep in. We opened up our gifts at our place, which took considerable less time then it took to wrap the gifts.

Then it was off to my sister's for the family gift exchange. I really like their Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer inflatable on their lawn, it's so cool. It's also nice to see the little cousins playing together. They got to the same daycare, but we rarely get to see them interact.

After my sister's it was off the in-laws for gift exchange and gifts for the kids. At this point it was only lunch time. Then we visited Donna's uncle for a bit and saw some of her family.

Afterwards it was onto Donna brother's place for dinner. I was pretty tried by this time and Carts crashed on their couch for an hour or so. We also got to play some Rock Band on the Wii.

Boxing Day we went to my parent's during the day for gifts for the kids. Due to our crazy schedule of the day before we decied it would be simpler to do it then.

Boxing Day eve we visited with Donna's family and all the little cousins (since everyone was busy with their families on Christmas Day). Iron Man was a very popular payjama this year for the 4 year olds as you can see.

Merry Christmas 1955

005004

This Christmas in the family gift exchange I asked for Best Buy gift cards so that I could get a scanner that does slides.

Scanning all my old photos for FaceBook, I realized that there was 30 years of slides in my parents basement collecting dust.

These two photos were taken at my grandparents home Christmas 1955.

More to follow. This is going to take some time.

Christmas Day

I'm a little late with this post but it's been a very busy week and it's left very little time for me to edit.

Christmas morning we opened gifts at our place in the morning. Carts caught on really fast how to open a present and his older brother certainly had no problem.

We then went to Donna's parents for brunch and gifts. After we visited Donna's family at her Uncle's.

And we ended the night at my parents for dinner and gifts. I was lucky to get some home made plum pudding with sauce.

I told you we had a busy week. This this was just the start.

A Doctor For Christmas

It's like the BBC gives me a Christmas present every year. Be sure the check out the official site for their Advent calendar and the countdown clock to the Voyage of the Damned. This is not the first time Kylie has been linked to Doctor Who. How can we forget the Shada dance video.
