Christmas Whitmore Style

This is the newest Whitmore, Carter John. He is such a happy baby.
Chloe got a doll named Chloe!
Chloe and her cousin Haeli from Manitoba.
Russell loves playing board games.
Curtis thought it would be funny to put Reid's money in a roll of toilet paper. So that is what he did. The look on his face was priceless!
Russell and Chloe coached Reid on a bit to look in the roll. Reid was ready to throe the whole roll out.
Yeah, he found it. He gave to roll to Grandma after he took his money!
The table ready for a feast. The food was so good. The dressing for the fruit salad is mayonnaise, bit of sugar and cream. It was very tasty.
While we were there, an Olfert gathering was planned, Curtis' mom's side of the family. There was 49 in attendance, that was including everyone. The kids had lots of fun playing with their cousins. The seniors hall was rented which allowed for lots of space. Before supper, those that wanted to went skating. By then end of the evening, the kids were tired. We are glad to be back home and getting into routine again. Christmas is a wonderful time of year and I look forward to doing it all again. We are blessed to have so much family close by to spend time with. There are some whose family is in a different country.

Yes, I am part of those "some" whose family is in a different country. Makes for sad times around family gathering occasions, but knowing that the other half of the family is where you are...you can be grateful that at least you are with some family than none. Curtis looks totally impressed to be holding Carter. Ha ha.

Love the table setting! Beautiful with all the fine china - what a special day! Your kids probably have a blast with their older cousins to hang out with - so much fun to watch them all interact.

It looks like you had a great time and wonderful food. I am glad to see that Curtis has quite a creative side to him. I would like to see more.
