Opening presents

Friday, December 25, 2009


We had a great Christmas this year, other than everyone being sick with colds! We headed over to Grandma Patty's for Christmas brunch & presents, then over to Grandma & Grandpa's for more presents and dinner. Addison played all day with her new toys, she wasn't really interested in opening all of her presents though, so we opened a few every day after Christmas too! It was our German exchange student, Julia's first Canadian Christmas too. She's been staying with us since August and will go home at the end of January.

Addison was so thrilled with the snow this year, since last year she wasn't even walking or old enough to be interested in it. She didn't want to come back inside!

Here is our official Christmas card picture! (courtesy of my sister, once again!). Addison was pretty grouchy this day, but we did manage to get a good one. Hope you are all having a great December!

We had a very busy Halloween this year. Addison helped carve pumpkins for the first time...she wasn't so sure about touching the insides at first though! Our German exchange student, Julia, had her first Canadian Halloween. It's not anything the same in Germany, so she was quite excited.

We made quite the trek that night though - first to the mall for some trick-or-treating...Addison's first time doing that too. She figured it out pretty quick that if she lifted up her pumpkin basket, that she would get a treat put into it.

Then it was off to Grandma Patty's, and trick-or-treating at the clubhouse at her complex. Then off to Grandma & Grandpa's for some more treats and fireworks.
