Maman's birthday was on Thursday night. She and Papa planned a cross country ski outing, P10 to Huron Lodge, to enjoy the fresh snow on the parkway and on
Ridge Road. Grandpa,
Barbara and Grant arrived to stay with
the boys... the house looked festive. Rudolph (Samuel) was skiing in the forest
and Boots was resting in the snow.
Soon it was time to go inside. Sam showed us the train around their Christmas tree while David played with his train with Grant.
Sam showed us his advent calendar and Grant checked out Kirk's calendar.
After supper, Sam and Grandpa made chocolate gluten-free cupcakes for Maman.
As soon as Maman came home, she opened her gifts and we all enjoyed the cupcakes.
Sam chose Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer for a story and Grandpa read it to him by the light of his headlamp and Maman's new candles.
Soon it was time to say goodbye to the boys and their colourful tree.
