It’s a wrap…

 

Or is it an ‘unwrap?’…..

Christmas morning was spent at Carlie’s..armed with our coffee and steamed vanilla milk we went over to see what ‘Santa’ had left for all of us…2011_12_25

with the ‘fireplace’ going on the TV..we had everything unwrapped..making quick work of all those pretty packages!!

Christmas breakfast was the standard..eggs benedict with a few potatoes on the side…delicious as always!!!

..even Oliver was wondering what was up this morning!!

..not exactly a normal Sunday at our house…

..well , normal for the other four legged boy…we broke a rule up at Mundy Park..off leash time ends at 10 am but we didn’t arrive until 12..

a quick run on the trail for our ‘golden boy’..we weren’t the only ones breaking the rules..I know it doesn’t make it right…but it’s Christmas, after all!!!

The wind was blowing and rain was coming down but Tucker doesn’t care..as long as he has a stick to carry and some water to  swim in he is one happy boy…

…our family portrait …one wet dog and two soggy dog owners!!..and we are standing in a muddy area filled with ‘landmines’!!!..watch where you step……

This afternoon our Christmas dinner is at my parents in Coquitlam..

but not before a ‘clean up’..and we clean up pretty fine!..

so that is a wrap of our 2011 Christmas!!..thanks for reading along!!!
