December is a short month, usually full of festive activities = photo opportunities, so of course the hard part is to pick only five pictures.
My coworker had two weeks off, meaning I had to work full time, meaning I missed out on most of our usual fun outings, meaning I had a hard time getting into the Holiday spirit.
Let's focus on the things we got to do, though.
I discovered an ad of a local pub that was asking for toy donations, Colin said he was sure he could part with some of his - some were never even opened and used, others in good condition.
What a win/win - having your kid purge while hopefully making other kids' days!
Luck had it that our hockey arena hosted the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck on occasion of the last game before the Christmas break. It never gets old. Give me an illuminated Coke Mack and some Melanie Thornton songs, and I'm a happy girl!
It was Colin's and a teammate's turn to escort the team onto the ice. He is the boy on the right wearing the "golden" helmet representing the top scorer challenge.
The video is your bonus and doesn't technically count as a picture anyway, so enjoy!
They always do a nice job creating a festive atmosphere at the outdoor rink.
What would the Holiday season be without daily visits of our Elf on the Shelf? More of Cookie's (that's our Elf's name) adventures here. Love the lumberjack shirt Cookie borrowed from Ken.
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
