Christmas with the Geerlinks

Because of conflicting schedules, Christmas was scheduled to be celebrated with my parents and siblings on December 27. Unfortunately Steph woke up that morning with the stomach flu 😦 So she didn’t make it. But thankfully our little family was finally healthy and all were able to enjoy this Christmas dinner. Mom set the fancy table for Christmas Eve to and we got to see it again on December 27 (and this time I was able to enjoy it). The carnations, the gold risers, the candles. A beautiful spread!

Looks like a lot of supervisors.DSC_1031 “Mom… where’s the food?”DSC_1040 DSC_1044 It felt very odd to set the table for so few people this Christmas. Our family in Thunder Bay, BC and the other side of Georgetown (sick) were definitely missed!  DSC_1050 DSC_1053 Isaiah learned the actions to “Away in A Manger” this Christmas. He refers to it as “the cow song”… his favorite part is “the cattle are lowing” always followed by “moooooo”. He got the whole table involved after Christmas dinner.  DSC_1056 Gifts started with a duplo gift for Isaiah and Brielle. Isaiah was thrilled to see the barn and all the farm animals. Brielle? She was most excited to back up and sit down on the box. A seat right at my height.  DSC_1063 We all helped to build the farm and tractor and played duplo together for a while.
