Christmas 2013

It was a pretty laid back Christmas at the Hemsleys.  Val and I both worked so we couldn't really go up to Canada and Tylissa just wanted to be home.  So it was just us - the Toren's didn't even make it over but we still had fun.

The start of the pinata.  We did start youngest to oldest as per tradition.  This is back to Keston's turn.
 I am being the dork that I love to be.
Chad doing his best Babe Ruth interpretation.
 Can't forget dad!
Thanks for the jammies Granny!  We were excited to see jammies again in the pinata.

Connecting with the family in Canada for cousin gifts.  It was a fun way to do the cousin gifts!

 We were so busy talking that I didn't get pictures of the kids opening their gifts but here is the final product.  Thanks Paul for the mini sticks, Austin for the globe puzzle, and Kaylene for the book - great gifts will lots of love!

I hope this is not a Christmas Eve tradition . . . playing Quelf . . . it really is a stupid game but the kids love it.
 See - one of the byproducts of said silly game.
 We were blessed again on Christmas morning.  However, the kids really do need to start waking up before me . . . it is getting old waking them up.
 Keston with his mini fig sideburns . . . Chad with his mini figs.

Tylissa figuring out her camera!
 Keston and his camera - I look for some great pictures from these two.
Val with his backpacking stove.
Loving every little minute of Christmas morning.
Chad with his action camera.
 Having a drink with his fun straw.
Christmas was great!  We opened gifts, ate breakfast and then headed off to see the new Hobbit movie.  A great day.
