A Very Merry 1st Christmas

On Christmas we headed out to Kitchener to have dinner at Great Grandma's house. This year Lola joined us since Lolo is still in the Philippines.

Uncle Ron got Logan a work bench with lots of tools that make noise and lights up. Logan especially likes the lights on the saw.



Grandpa and Grandma got lots of special gifts for Logan. He is really fascinated by this bath toy: you pull the ball in the seals mouth and his tail moves.


Lola and Logan cuddling while he chews on his new Elmo phone from Grandma.



And in case you didn't know, Logan's Great Grandma is hilarious!

Christmas Morning

Santa was on a budget this year so we told him it would be okay to just fill up our stockings. Logan was so happy with the elephant he got from Santa that he gave him a big kiss!
After breakfast Logan got to unwrap the rest of the gifts that he got from his cousins, Aunties and Uncles.


Logan gave Daddy a special gift that he made for him.
What a great first Christmas!

Christmas Eve

This Christmas Eve, Auntie, Uncle, the cousins and Lola came for dinner.
Logan got to open his present from Kiyan, Caprii and Xyris. He LOVED the ribbon that Auntie wrapped the present with.
A toy train and cool outfits! Thank you!


As was expected, the tissue paper was a big hit too.


He also got to unwrap his present from cousins Lauren and Mathew.



Wow! Doorways to crawl in and out of! I love it! Thank you!
Logan's Godmother even stopped by to wish him a Merry Christmas...


From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!

The Next Jackson Pollock?

Logan has done 'hand prints' at the Early Years Centre but has never finger painted before. I thought that 10 months old might be too early...but we were stuck inside due to the snow and coldness and I thought we could turn whatever he made into Christmas thank you cards. I figured that since the paint was non-toxic and washable that it couldn't really go that badly.
I sat Logan in his Bumbo on a vinyl tablecloth without his shirt, put his soother in his mouth (so he wouldn't try to eat it) and let him go wild.

He seemed to really enjoy it and even liked playing with the paper towels during clean-up.
Bath Time!

Logan was very happy he got to play with his Aunties and Uncles

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Around 10:30 am it started snowing in Markham on Friday....











By 2pm it was time to shovel....





And at 4pm you couldn't tell that I shoveled!






Still want to come to Canada Auntie Thao?



Not much else to do but stay inside and play!

Getting Ready for the Holidays

We're getting ready for Logan's first Christmas! The tree is up, the stocking are hung and the Christmas crafts are done!


A tutorial on how to make these cute magazine Christmas trees are over at the Just Like Martha blog and you can make your own little holiday family over at Cubeecraft.

We even made a virtual gingerbread house over at All Sorts....

Yesterday we joined Lola for a Holiday lunch...

I packed a sippy cup and some Cheerios for lunch and the rest of Logan's food was 'Big Boy Food' from the buffet.


He was a very good boy but got restless after about two hours. We were at the Delta Hotel so I took him on a tour to look at the pool, the waterfall, the lobby and we took a gazillion trips up and down the glass elevator. Logan flirted with everyone we saw and the lady at the front desk even gave Logan a Christmas present!
