Before lunch, we decided to open our gifts to each other while Grandma was here with us, so we "got on down" to doing just that ....
"First a display of a little "brotherly love", which I just happened to capture, thinking I had better get a picture of this display of sibling "love" into a frame for proof further down the line .... lol."
"We got on with the task of turn taking of opening gifts, with Mercedes begin very helpful at times. I am not sure if Connor didn't like receiving the top as a gift, or maybe it was the colour that didn't suit him?"
"Paul had to have a little enjoyment by trying on Holly's gift ..... I am thinking he was maybe a little jealous he didn't get a Hat/Scarf/Glove set? Next Year Baby Boy, Mama will make sure I get you one. Beside the point, it looks much better on Holly."
"Paul was pretty excited with his gifts of a "Mortgage Jar" and a "white" Roots jacket. He has been obsessed with having "white" clothing at a very young age, which is any Mother's nightmare !
"Mother was pleased with her gifts of a brooch and slippers from my sister, Donna, & I, along with the Fruit Basket her Church had delivered to her."
"My two little "Rip-tail Snorters", knew they had to eat up their lunch, as there were Christmas Goodies to follow right after."
"...... and sure enough, there were lots of Christmas Goodies to be had after lunch."
"The boys were trying out Poppa's Christmas gift from Grandma, before he had a chance to get himself all cleaned up and ready for his "Crabby Cabbie" work."
With Christmas Day Eve upon us, I am hoping the Wiarton Airport Weatherman has a great forecast for the day ahead.
It is looking pretty good with hopefully a bit of snow for Christmas morning, and great roads for those who are travelling. Perfect !
I love the show the X-Factor, and enjoyed the Christmas entertainment from the show ...... but then again who wouldn't enjoy listening to a up & rising young Canadian Talent, as well as a famous Guru in the Music irWorld.
With the Christmas Turkey already in the oven since 6:00 am, and my Rip-Tail Snorters up and active, I think it is time I head off into the rest of my day ahead towards a Christmas Day Eve adventure, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
