Merry Christmas from the Drinkwaters!

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family! As you can imagine, Christmas this year was extra special with Sylvie. We began the festivities the weekend before Christmas with Joyanne's family. It was a busy weekend with three younger grandkids running around the house. Sylvie loves playing with her cousins. A short video of Sylvie on what Santa says...

Hangin' out with my Daddy in Oliver

Why do you keep making me stop opening my presents for pictures Mama?

I learned how to lock the patio door. I even locked Grandpa Cliff outside, hehe!

We then celebrated Christmas Eve with Cory's relatives in Kelowna. We had a wonderful afternoon visiting, snacking and playing before opening our stockings.

Our own Christmas reindeer stopped by for a visit and snack. I guess they couldn't wait for the carrots we put out with Santa's cookies. Sheesh...

My Aunty Kelti likes to play with me!

Attack of the killer tiger by Aunty Kelti!

Again, again Aunty Kelti!

I love this tigger!

I've got my Grandpa Roy wrapped around my finger ;)

I even got him to help me jump on the furniture! Shhhh...don't tell Mama!

Opening stockings on Christmas Eve

Help me open this one Daddy

I have to try my new presents out right away. Look at my new bib and Hello Kitty toothbrush

And just think, last year we were just a family of two. Now...

Merry Christmas!
