Christmas - the day after

I hope you all had a great Christmas. We did ! We went to celebrat Christmas eve at my mom's with my brother and his family. As you can see, Steb was very happy to be there ( and ready to eat !!! ).

Like last year, my mom bought lots of sea food. I don't like sea food so I had my little special dish (yes, I know, I'm a spoiled brat ! lol). The cousins had a lot of fun together, especially Emma and her cousin who get along very well.

On the 25th, it was time to open the presents brought by Santa. Emma was very happy to get this electronic piano. Now she's going to be able to compose her music. She was doing it on an old electronic piano at my mom's.

She also got Hannah Montana season 2.

Steb couldn't believe he got a mini skate, just like his big brother.

At my mom, he got a pink Panther : he's a big fan !!!
Pierre was very happy: we have the Wii now.
Emma and her cousin Aurane. The poor girl has a double scoliosis, at almost 7 yo, and has to wear a cast for 45 days.

My mom had invited my grand'ma to eat on Christmas day. (you may remember she's not the nicest person in the world and this year, my sister in law did witness how she can be ... ) She tried the boys' mini skate !!!



And we finished the day at my grand'ma where more gifts were awaiting the spoiled brats kids !!! Of course, we had to do the traditionnal picture.


And what do you do the day after Christmas?

You put together 24 pinguins that come in 3 pieces each !!!

Christmas in brief:
Lost gifts: only one! The latest Hannah Montana CD for Emma.
Fingers hurt cutting boxes: only one! Mine ..... Ouch !
Cheesy gifts? NONE ! I know, I can't believe it myself !!!



Of course, I didn't stitch at all during the past two days but I can show you my progress of the 23 rd. I love my cutie !!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas !!!
