Christmas...

I have to say that I had a GREAT Christmas this year... Christmas eve I went to Doug's parents and had a lovely dinner with the family, then I stopped by Shane's to see the boys before candlelight service at church... a very complete day celebrating our Saviour's birth...

Christmas morning I went over to Lisa's to find her and Doug in their jammies 25 min before everyone arrived for breakfast...

I jumped right in and started to help cooking...

I have to say when my sister and I man a kitchen, things happen!

Everyone arrived and they looked mean and hungry... hahaha

I fried up the latkes nice a crispy...
Lisa tested one and approved!
We sat down to a feast of latkes with apple sauce, sour cream, biscuits and gravy, orange juice, coffee and tea...

After everyone was full we started opening presents... Lisa got Dad & Doug's parents a huge wedding picture - it was beautiful... and all were happy with them...

Laurie and Rich are such a great addition to our family... I really love them around...
Doug and Lisa went overboard with gifts for each other, as they should I guess, after all it it their first Christmas married to each other...
I made my Pop a book of pictures from snapfish.com and he was overjoyed... hahaha he also liked his snuggie - I got a red one to match mine...
Dad got us kids our own season tickets to the Pantages Theater... OMGoodness it must have cost him a small fortune but we were so greatful! Finally no fighting over who gets to go to the shows downtown... now we can all go together - ugg I love the theater!
It was such a great day... everyone was happy and loving... my little sister actually gave me a hug and said she loves me... she never does and that, ever, and it was so nice :...-(

Merry Christmas everyone!
