Chrismas Fun and the Big Surprise Revealed!

Oh what a great day it has been! I was up early with the excitement of all that the day would bring! Baking and meal prep was first and then off to Carol and David's to enjoy our traditional Christmas breakfast together. Thanks Carol! I love spending this time with your family!

10:00 found me on the road headed to my parent's home. What an exciting time it was as these 5 amazing kids bounced excitedly around the family room waiting for present time! Before we opened gifts it was a time for quiet listening more bouncing, rolling and jumping around while Grandpa read the Christmas story. Grandma had lots of help with her gifts as Noah peaks to see what this one is. Brooke waiting patiently for her next gift. Shelby was into the excitement too but her very favourite activity was by far taking all the wrapping paper and putting it in the garbage! Here Keenan shows off his new 'Cars' backpack. He'll be all set for school in September. And finally, the big reveal!! Here is Rebecca learning about her Christmas gift! Screaming...

This next video is her best friend Victoria learning that she will be coming too! More screaming...

The blur at the end of that video was Victoria rushing upstairs to pack! Guess there's no question that she'll be ready to go next week. This will be her very first trip to Disney and her Grandma (my wonderful friend Sharon) and I are thrilled to be able to see Disney through her eyes!

Finally, this is where Rebecca learned that Victoria was going to be going to Disney with us too!! Yup....still more screaming!


In just 10 sleeps :o) Sharon, Victoria, Rebecca and I will be flying to Florida to enjoy 4 wonderful, fun filled days at Disney!! If the truth were known, Sharon and I did the adult version of jumping around screaming when we found out that this was trip was happening! Emails galore, phone calls and so much excitement. Trust me, this was no easy secret to keep for almost 2 months but we did and we're so glad all the fun of the reveals was captured on video!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had an extra special day today too!
