Christmas Dinner with the Wests

Getting ready for dinner with the Wests.

Sigrid, Soren, Xander and Niya. (Soren and Xander appear to be fascinated by the floor.)

Kofi and John.

Addae and Anders eye the appetizers.

Who wants to watch some Dinosaur Train?

Dae-dae, tell it all to Bonnie.

The Classic.

Christmas morning

Fire? Check.

Presents? Check.

Baby in Christmas PJs ready for his first Christmas? Check.

Breakfast treats? Check.

I guess it's Christmas morning!

This wooden T-rex for Anders from Niya was a big hit.

Finally, I thought my mom might enjoy seeing that she isn't the only one to wrap Christmas gifts in Hanukkah paper.

Christmas Eve at Tracy's

For Christmas Eve, we had dinner at Tracy, Michael and Kiran's house.

Veronica and her kids Thomas and Chlodagh (who are almost exactly the same ages as Anders and Soren) came, too.

Kiran and Anders showed off their unwrapping skills (which are prodigious),

Kiran and his dad are both pretty good on the harmonica.

Anders and Kiran were both pretty excited by this book.

Arrived in Victoria a week after Sigrid and the boys, two days before Christmas.

Brought this little guy along with me for the tree.
