The ATeam arrive around midnight on Friday, and were on their way to the airport or conference location at 5:30am Monday. Zoom, zoom, zoom...went the weekend. After we delivered D#2 to the airport at 6:30am, we came home and I was back in bed by 9am. ZZZZZZ, I needed to catch up on some sleep. I think I am almost there, but not quite back in the groove yet.
It was a last minute surprise visit, and we made the most of it. Family breakfasts, late night gab-fests, Santa Claus Parade, hockey with JJ, decorating the tree party, food, fun games and.....a glass or two of wine.
With our back and neck problems this year, AC and I took a pass on the parade, so I don't have any pictures of that fun, but we happily snapped a few during the rest of the weekend.
|It took lots of concentration.
|The Aunties brought the kids bouncing balls, but they required some work before the kids could use them. The Aunties set to work...
|...and Danica read the instructions for them.
|Then it was time to sit down to a brunch of bacon cooked by Eric on the BBQ, and a breakfast casserole made by Buppa. Yum, yum. yum.
|After breakfast/brunch it was time for more hugs and maybe a cookie or two.
|This was the beginning of the day...
|...and this was the end. After the Santa Claus Parade, we put on warm jammies, and gathered round the table for a late dinner. Auntie Alycia taught us how to light the Menorah.
|Both kids helped place the candles in the right spots...
|...and it burned brightly all through dinner.
