Brookie got this kitchen so now she can cook along side of me when I am making dinner.
Emma's present was a kareoke machine and Ellie's was a Nintendo DS which she ended up playing for 13 of the 14 hours to Canada.
Our second Christmas was about an hour away from Lethbridge in Mountain View, Alberta. We stayed in in a bed and breakfast with all the cousins. We played, ate, exchanged gifts, ate, slept (although not very much) and then ate again.
Even though it was very cold it was the perfect Christmas setting with snow and frost on the mountains and on every branch. It was beautiful.
Here are 11 1/2 of the 12 Sherwood cousins (sorry Boo Boo)
Uncle Josh always entertains the kids and is doing a great job here reading 'Petite Rouge' with a fuunny accent. I don't think the kids understood a word he was saying but it was fun.
We had a talent show. Ellie is played the piano and Emma played with two of her cousins who knew the same song.
Our third Christmas was in Vulcan with the Lamberts. This one occurred on actual Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Every year on Christmas Eve we read 'Lowly the Worm'.
One of the fun activities we did while in Canada was sleding. It was freezing cold but we all had a great time.
