And So It Begins

It is starting. I'm getting so excited for Christmas. All of the kids are coming home this year and the first one arrived today. Today we went and picked up Alex at the airport. Kira and her kids will be arriving on Friday, Ben and Sharley on Saturday, Brandon and family will be arriving on Monday, Justin on Tuesday, Alycia and Trevor on Wednesday and Grandma on Christmas Eve.

It was funny picking up Alex. When we picked him up for Thanksgiving we didn't recognize him until he walked right up to us. He was wearing a big fuzzy Russian type of hat and we were totally not expecting to see him like that. Today we again didn't recognize him until he was right beside us because he looked like a lumberjack. He was wearing a flannel shirt and a toque. He looks a lot bigger than he was before.

This is going to be a fun Christmas.

You forgot to mention that Alycia and Trevor arrive on Wednesday. Besides being bigger Alex came home with hair on his chest - yikes! He doesn't like it and tried shaving it off. Ha!Ha!Ha!

How did I miss Alycia and Trevor? I definitely had them in my mind, it just never made it to my fingers when I was typing. Sorry.
