Christmas 2012

This was our last Christmas in Toronto and it was very bittersweet.  We just love so many things about this city.  Friends, our church, the school, our house . . . it is going to be really difficult to leave this place.  So we tried to make the most of the holiday.  This past weekend we enjoyed the "Carols by Candlelight" service at The Peoples Church and an afternoon at the movie theater (Tyler & Scott saw The Hobbit / Alex, Hannah and I opted for Rise of the Guardians).  We spent Christmas Eve watching The Nativity Story (our annual tradition).  We also each open one gift on Christmas Eve - it is always pajamas.  We do this every year mostly so that everyone will have clean pajamas that fit for the Christmas morning photos!

Christmas morning was delightful.  We had no place to go so it was a very relaxing day.  Here is a small glimpse into our day . . .

I have now officially trained my dog to pose for photos!
Our Christmas Pajamas consisted of matching Feeken University shirts.
Yes, we are total dorks!!

O Christmas Tree . . . with the help of a special camera filter!

Same tree - no magic photo equipment.
(And I won't miss the hideous curtains in our house when we move.  Yuk!)

Hannah got Tajin in her stocking.  This would not make most people happy but for a girl
who spent her formative years in Mexico, it was a Christmas miracle.

Tyler & Alex pooled their resources to purchase a Paris picture from Ikea for Hannah.
She is obsessed with Paris and is attempting to decorate her room with everything and anything Paris.

Tyler wanted a Keurig for Christmas.  He is happy.

Tyler and Hannah bought Alex a Skylanders Giants game.  He was THRILLED!

A gift for Tyler from the Commonwealth of Virginia.  He can't wait to get his license!

I am so in love with my new boots.  I am taking the rest of my shoes to Goodwill.
