It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Christmas is in full swing at our place! Despite the cold which I'm not very fond of, I'm really getting into the magic of Christmas with the kids! We started a new tradition with our Elf on the Shelf which James named Goldie. Every morning the kids wake up and search around the house for him...sometimes he's been a little naughty (making a mess of our cheerios), sometimes silly (hanging upsidedown from the chandelier) and sometimes nice (writes notes and draws pictures for the kids). They love it and so do we! Tonight there was a little show on tv about him and the kids were glued!
We were invited to a friends kids Christmas party today and the big guy himself made an appearance - much to the delight of my kids (well except when he wanted them to sit on his lap). But they watched him intently and James joined in some Christmas carols. They even got a special gift from him. James was full of questions on the way home "I didn't see where he parked his sleigh? Why did he only stay for a while?" It's truly heartwarming to see them believe!

I love this picture:)
James asked Santa (with the best manners) for a scooter!
Mason just wanted me and more cheesies!
The Langley Fire Department comes by yearly lights and sirens (and santa!) to collect money for the burn unit. The kids bundled up faster than I've ever seen and we headed out for some jaw dropping fun!
Pretty shell-shocked!

We took this picture for Geoff's customers Christmas card!
I took about 40 pictures to try and get one with'll have to see if that worked out, but here's a funny outtake!

Looking forward to tree decorating, Geoff's charity work function, his work Christmas skate, special dates at Potters light show, big smiles when they find Goldie, the shaw fireplace, gingerbread much more!
