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).
But most importantly, Jade opened her presents !!!
Thank you Jade for making our Christmas so special.
Mom and Dad :)
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Originally, we had 12 monsters but ‘Big Blue Bear’ ate the smallest one.
My wife drew these fun monsters and Jade named them.
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.
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.
Almost 40 years later, my daughter Jade LOVES playing with the camper.
CLICK! click click CLICK! click click CLICK !!!
Hmmm … Where’s that screwdriver?
Vancouver had a massive snow fall last night!
And new snow is PERFECT for making a snowman.
Today was super fun! Jade and our neighbour helped make a snowman.
We then added a carrot nose … the final touch!
