I didn't get very many pictures this Christmas, but I will post the ones I have. We had a real feast again this year with Art bringing his cabbage rolls, I did a turkey, Mitz did a ham and Carolyn brought a huge pot of mashed potatoes. We had Pumpkin pie, cherry pie, and apple pie. I don't believe anybody left the table hungry and a also think that many of us should have left the table sooner. We sat around and talked about everybody in Saskatchewan and how we missed the gatherings where the whole family was together at the hall in Grandora. We played the white elephant game and this year there were probably more tools there than there were girlie gifts. It took about an hour and a half to play the game and there was plenty of laughing and gift stealing.

We instated a new rule at Thanksgiving this year that the adults sit at the big table in the dining room. They also got to eat first. Real adults consist of Mom and Dad's kids and friends from the same generation. The young adults took their plates into the livingroom and the kids 18 and under took their plates downstairs to the family room.

The young guys sitting in the livingroom after we finished eating. Jack is teaching Paco what NOT to do on his PSP. Seated on the couch are Colevin, Peter (Melanie's husband) and Reagan.

Luke is such a cutie and a more content baby you would have to search for long and hard.

This is Connor, who has one of the quickest smiles I have seen. What a cutie.

That was a great day. Those cabbage rolls were amazing. I only got one and then I was too full :( I'll have to just make my own I guess.

Mmmmmmm cabbage rolls. I didn't get any. I'm not sure what happened, but nobody made any. I guess I'll have to make my own too.
It looks like you had a great time. Just seeing everyone makes me want to come and visit.
Love to all and Happy New Year.

It was a good day. All the food was great. I am glad I don't have to make cabbage rolls, being married to the cabbage roll-meister.

Seriously, I ate only cabbage rolls and a little bit of ham. Everything else I can have some other time, but cabbage rolls I only get once a year, and by this time, I hadn't had them in almost two. I think I polished off five or six.

So, when do you become a "real" adult? Ah well, I guess I'm just stuck being one of the fake ones. I love those last two pictures of Luke and Connor. Luke just loves Kyle's hat, it's hilarious.

I wish I had had my digital camera that day, I could have gotten some pictures.
