Christmas Day in Cambridge

We were all up early this morning.  Heather and Tom would be spending the day with his family. The rest of us left about 7:40 AM for Cambridge, arriving at Kim and Mike's shortly after 8:00. Jolene was already up and playing with her large Santa gift, a complete play kitchen. We immediately got into the opening of the rest of the presents.

And helping out

What is she looking at?

Oh, it's Dad playing with her toys

In fact, some toys require a team effort

It was special to have Great Grandma and Great Grandpa there

It reignites all those old Christmas feelings to have young children around. I never imagined how much I would enjoy being Grandpa, especially since I never really grew up.  I like this. It made it extra special to have Jan and Harry there so we could share the day with four generations.

 Mike and Sandy put together a fine supper that included two whole chickens, stuffing, potatoes and veggies.

As the day wound down, we took our leave and headed back to Woodstock, arriving at 9:30 (just after Tom and Heather). Heather had recorded a first season marathon of Big Bang Theory, one of our favourite TV shows. Harry had never seen it so we watched a couple of episodes before going to bed.

I hope each and every one of you reading this enjoyed Christmas as much as we did!
