Playing in the snow!

Sofia has come to love playing in the snow. Her Papa and her had made a tunnel and also enjoy playing with the slide. La Abue joined them and had a lot of fun too!

We are having a white Christmas...

Our first turkey ever!

We literally 'ended up' with a turkey, so we decided to be brave and cook our first turkey ever. It was a success and we enjoyed very much sharing it with our friends at our traditional Christmas Gift Exchange.
