Ahhh blogging the holidays...

I have to first mention that Christmas for me this year was actually celebrated on the 26th, Boxing Day. This is because that was the day my sister Aurelle came from Boston to visit with her husband Lui and their new baby girl Leonila (our grandmother's name). And also my other sister Arlene from Brandon was coming at the same time and she also has a new baby boy named Mason who is only a week apart in age they are both 6 months old. This is their first Christmas and the first time in 4 years that we've all been together. These two kids are soooo adorable. They are both showing off the presents I got them

I had to post this image
My cousin's kid Gingee kept bringing me books I have and she brought me the newest coffee table book and asked me to read to her so I did and like a kid she laughed at everything I said, so did everyone else but my mom, she smacked the side of my head (lightly).

Yes there was a little drinking at the Christmas party.
This is my cousin Alvin and my dog Scruffs. My dog is a large breed and I don't know why but my cousin really wanted to hug him Scruffs didn't mind being held for so long either, it was so funny I had a hard time taking a picture of I was laughing so hard.

Babies in Brandon
Sooo... My sisters, husbands, sister came to visit us while we were visiting them in Brandon and this is them trying to get the babies to play with each other. The holidays this year was all about these babies entertaining us.

Toasting to 2010!
Here's to 2010! This is us freezing our butts off in -30 something weather somewhere outside of Morden, Manitoba in the Valley where no one else can here or see us. Why my friends decided to buy a barn and convert it to a house is beyond me but it made for an awesome party place. Good thing I wasn't holding a drink! This is my 5th year being sober.

Go on without me it's too cold!
This is our first snow shoeing extravaganza in 2010 with Scruffs our dog. The weather was cold but made for a beautiful backdrop .

New years day at night and you want to ice-skating and nothing is open?... Well then just build your own ice rink! That is what my friends did, and to also avoid figure skaters on their ice.

Old school friends!
I cannot even believe I went to the bar and then having to run into friends I haven't seen in years... Crazy!! I have to clarify why I was even at Gio's I was taking pics of a drag queen for a school assignment. And that Noam was just there because he was just taking a break from making B movies...

Deemed the Paparazzi for the night.
A lot of people at the bar were calling me the paparazzi and were begging me to take a picture of them. I thought the paparazzi took pictures of celebrities and people who didn't want they're pictures taken?... Crazy drunk people!

DRAG FIGHT!!! (not really)
This was all a joke I promise. I went to an after party and it was 5 a.m. and all the drag queens were getting out of face and getting back into man clothes so I mentioned that I've always wanted to see drag queens fighting and they told me it looks the same as drag queens defacing and to prove it they gave me a little show. I figured black and white cause drag queens fighting just screams really bad colors clashing!
