The Excitement of Christmas Morning

Jade was feeling so happy Christmas morning!!!

Our festive home was decorated with our drawings and paintings.

Unfortunately, I was feeling the chills from on oncoming flu (blah).

Jade & Her Reindeer Games

Reindeer Antlers

Jade’s mom made these great reindeer antlers for Jade.

I can’t believe she made it in crochet!

Jade was really excited to wear it to her StrongStart Christmas Party.

Wiggling Ice Skaters

Wiggling Ice Skaters

Jade painted this at StrongStart before the holidays.

I’m the red skater and Jade is in gold.

I think we’re with the Canadian Olympic team (haha).

Jade really enjoyed skating with me earlier this month.

We’ll have to go again soon.

Santa’s Final Inspection

Santa' s Final Inspection / 1

For the last time, Santa double checks the toys before his big flight.

Jade insisted I draw a ball of yarn for mom.

One of the reindeers was feeling sick — and Goofy is ready to fill in (haha).

Christmas Center of Attention

Christmas Tree / 1

Three is such a wonderful age and Jade has been fascinated by our Christmas tree.

Our family stares at the lights for hours and we talk about the all different ornaments.

Christmas Tree / 3

There are a few gifts under the tree and Jade likes guessing what they are.

It’ll be so fun around the tree and finally unwrapping our presents.

Candy Cane On The Brain

Candy Cane Lane

Jade’s perfected the art of eating a candy cane.

We both ate candy canes together and we talked about the cool peppermint taste.

Surprisingly, she’s very patient and savours it.

And she looooves crunching the last skinny parts.

Yum !!!

The Eleven Monsters Of Christmas

11 Monsters of Christmas

Originally, we had 12 monsters but ‘Big Blue Bear’ ate the smallest one.

My wife drew these fun monsters and Jade named them.

Noises of Christmas Past

Noises Of Christmas Past

Bing! Bang! Click! Clang!

Christmas in 1974. It started as the funnest, loudest Christmas ever. I really wanted that guitar. And I also received an amazing Fisher Price family camper.

Christmas Camper

Later that day, my dad opened up the camper. He took out the cool clicking noise because it was driving him CRAZY.

When I later met my wife, I couldn’t believe she had the SAME camper … and it still made that SAME clicking noise.

Lucky!

Retro Family Camper

Almost 40 years later, my daughter Jade LOVES playing with the camper.

CLICK! click click CLICK! click click CLICK !!!

Hmmm … Where’s that screwdriver?
