Manitoba Christmas

We left for Manitoba on the 23rd and I don't think we've ever packed this light. :)

Watching movies and playing games after 5 hours of driving. They always do so good.


Teaching Mom and Dad a new game. They might not look impressed but I think they enjoyed it ;)

Gingerbread decorating. 


The finished homes. 

So many stories were read. I love that they all LOVE reading. 

A blast from my past. This mask was always terrifying for me. Sawyer found it and scared Cooper so much so that it had to go away for the rest of our visit. 

Movie night as we were stormed stayed and no one else could come over. 

Always a performer

Early morning snuggles and naps. 


Lots of Crokinole was played


And then there were sugar cookies. Pretty sure A licked the same cookie 20 times over. I cannot even remember how many times I reiced it for her. 


Doesn't he look impressed with me. :) Holding Everett, the newest Penner. He is two months old here. 










The kids always love their jammies from Grandma and Grandpa. However this year Grandma sewed them matching glow in the dark pjs. 



We went skating for a couple hours one morning. What a great reason to get out of the house and be active. We loved that time on the ice. Next year we need a game of shinny though. 



The two pairs of skates that started this family.

December before Christmas

We had a very busy month this December. It started with hockey and ended with too many Christmas parties to count. It was a blessed December.
