A Very Ladner Christmas

Had a great family Christmas at the home of my little Sis and her family.  
Special people, special times, much gratitude.

 The Connector:  foggy as per usual.

 We never made it to the Coquihalla on the way there as an accident had it closed by the time we reached Merritt.  Highway 8 to Highway 1 was slow but much better conditions.


 Our first dinner was a big family dinner at the home of Adam's girlfriend's folks where
Kayla made two tasty Chilli's one ConCarne and one Veggie, and delicious 
pumpkin cornbread for which I forgot to get the recipe.

 Selfie for Carmie



 A rousing game of Junior Headbandz

 Christmas morning the Elf on the Shelf made snow angels in the flour.


 Visited Adam and Kayla's place in Vancouver and met Sheba, our newest grandkitty.

 Went to the annual Heald-Paris Boxing Day Bash


 Such a talented bunch of people!

 More cowbell!

I have attempted to rotate this video a few different ways and have had no luck. 
I still think it's worth posting though.

 Our artistic talents, or lack there of, made for a fun game of Pictionary.

 Surf or Turf on our final night at Steph's



 The Poole gene pool:  Marlene, Ron, Brad and Shane.

 Much better weather for the drive home on the Coquihalla...

 and the Connector
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!!!

  1. Very pretty photos, Suzan. Is Ladner a place or your little sister's surname? Adam has a vaguely similar, almond-shaped look about his eyes to my son, David...could it be a small genetic link to their slightly gypsy-looking great-grand father, Frank Elcomb?

    1. Thanks Nick! Ladner is the Village she lives in. It's part of the whole lower mainland, Vancouver mashup, but it is it's own village, a very picturesque little municipality. A link to gypsies for Adam would not surprise me. :) I'm always surprised at how many people say he looks like me when I think he looks so much like Reg at times. I guess we all recognize the features we're used to looking at. :)
