Remember when you were in school and you couldn't WAIT for that 10 day stretch of presents and cookies and all the time in the world to play in the snow and with all the new barbies? That's how last week felt to me. I haven't had this long a stretch off for Christmas in years-- maybe since I worked at big enough. And it was great. We spent time with my sisters, parents, aunts and uncles and dear family friends and most importantly got to enjoy Graham as he ripped up wrapping paper with joy. I have said it before but wow, this kid rocks my world.
Here are some photo highlights from the week:

Marketing folks aren't the only ones creating spin. (He signs "more" to show how much he likes it.)

Canadian Pacific uses the rails that come through town for several freight trains a day. Each December, they bring in a train decked out with Christmas lights that has a band on board. They open up the side of the boxcar for a concert-- the only cost of admission is to bring a can of food for the local food pantry... and on top of that CP Rail made a $1000 donation to our local food bank. In 10 years they've raised 3 million dollars and 1.6 million pounds of food with this effort for many local food banks. Pretty amazing. Plus they serve hot chocolate!
Jim's tablescape would have made Sandra Lee proud (and he didn't even have to wear a tight sweater to make it look good!).
(if you haven't noticed Jason and Graham are BFFs)
And Graham showed Grandpa some love:
