Christmas morning - I was up at 6am. The excitement of what was to happen throughout the day was just too much for me!! I very graciously didn't wake Paul up until 8!! I waited TWO HOURS. Marrage has taught me patience. =) There is hope for me. We opened our stockings first, then ate breakfast and collected everything we needed for our trip up to Canada. Then we opened gifts. I don't have any pictures of that!! When there's only two, it's hard to take pictures!! Ah well, here we are under the tree on Christmas eve:
At ten we left our apartment and headed up to Canada!! Hurray!! It was a quick six hour drive. We did stop for a short visit with the Stiefler's to wish them a Merry Christmas and to drop off their gift. We arrived home around 4:30. Mrs. Nicols joined us for dinner. So there were ten of us that evening. We forgot to take pictures around the table!! Oh well. Gift opening came soon enough, and we got plenty of pictures of that!
Here's Mum and Dad opening part of theirs:
The five of us:
Paul enjoying mum's trifle . . . mmm! Yes, it was good mum!
Who do ya think won?!
