A Very Bu... uh, Merry Christmas Season!

What a whirlwind the Christmas holidays were! I feel like this week is a week of recovery after more than 20 hours of driving and about 5 different locations visited. Rather than give you all the mundane details of where we were and what we did, I'm going to settle for the pictures from our adventures. We didn't take a ton of pictures because we preferred to enjoy the scrumptious victuals and rousing company instead...

Christmas Eve Tenhage Family Gathering

Grandpa and Hayden reading Hayden's new book from Oma

Erm... Cousinly love?
No, Colsen, no!

Christmas with the Groenwolds

This one is my favourite! (All of them were...)

All the girls teaming up to open Brynn's present
These cuties sure do love their princesses and horses! 
... and their Christmas lights!

Christmas at the Kottelenbergs

Colsen torturing loving Brynn again!
Hayden had very little patience with Brynn when it came to opening her presents!
So much fun with the cousins!
New Year's Eve with the Langendoens and Stevenses

Jackson and Brynn engaged in James' thrilling narrative
Sweet little Shiloh
Stealing all of Jackson's toys
The First Days of 2015 in Collingwood
( I admit I didn't take any pictures... these are from Chris' GoPro)

Cross-country skiing at the Scenic Caves!

Thanks for the invite!!

We hope that you all have a wonderful 2015!

“And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done, full of tasks, claims, and demands; and let us see that we learn to take it without letting fall too much of what it has to bestow upon those who demand of it necessary, serious, and great things.” 
― Rainer Maria RilkeLetters of Rainer Maria Rilke, 1892-1910

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
(Little Gidding)
― T.S. Eliot
