Christmas 2011

we had a awesome Christmas this year... I think every year Christmas gets better as the boys get older... the anticipation was great... they start Christmas activities as soon as Halloween is over I think at school so Keegan was quite ready for Christmas to come! He was the first one up this year at 5 AM to let us know that SANTA had come! ( he checked the tree before coming to wake us up.) This year we had our Christmas with Randy's parents, Karen & Reid, who flew out from Vancouver Island to spend the holidays with us. It was really special to have them with us.. we don't get to see them too often. We just had a short time with them but the boys got lots of playtime and cuddles in with them the short time they were here... Here is a few of my fave pictures from the last little bit....

Keegan's First Christmas Concert

On Wednesday night Keegan and his pre-K class sang 3 songs at the schools Christmas concert. I was so proud of him up there on the stage belting out all the words to all the songs they had practiced so many times and doing all the hand movements too :) Here are a few pictures I took of the evening....

Keegan's whole class doing their "solo" song... Loved how everyone dressed up for their big night :)

Remembrance Day Long Weekend

On the Remembrance Day long weekend my cousin Jocelyn, Shawn and their new baby Hanna as well as my other cousin Graham and Joey were going to go to their mom & dad's so we decided to go to Mom & Dad's for the weekend so we could meet this new little bundle of joy :) Hanna is ADORABLE!... She is about 10 weeks old now but since was born 6 weeks early is still pretty tiny! The boys thought she was pretty cute and each got a chance to hold her.. and I got some good quality cuddle time in too :) Next time we see her she'll probably be double the size that she is now!
