Poytress Christmas.

It has always been such a blessing for us to have our families live so close together. Every year we get to spend Christmas with both sides of the family instead of having to go back and forth yearly. We love heading out to our Poytress home aways from home to spend time eating, swimming, playing games, and catching up. AJ has so much fun Uncle Jared, Jorpo, and Jeff......well maybe he'll warm up to Jeff a bit more next year, lol! Seeing our boys with their aunts and Aby and Syd makes me want to be back in Fort Macleod already.
Here's some pictures from our Poytress family Christmas:

Aaron took Age out to play in the snow but it ended up being more of a quick walk around the back yard and right back in!
Chels has this cupcake book full of really neat ideas. (that's right I said neat) These may have taken a little longer than expected (4 hours) but us girls had a great time chatting away while we made them and in the end it was totally worth it, don't they look great?!

Uncle Jared playing prince Charming to Syds RapunzelHere are all the stockings hung on Christmas eve, I can't believe how big the family is getting!CHRISTMAS MORNING!!!!

Gift of the year goes to Uncle Jorpo for picking out this Great looking hat for Poy. Over the holidays I think I say it on everyone but Lorraine. One of the best parts of Christmas morning is BREAKFAST, mmmmmm....They are always wearing Christmas colors and looking so cute on Christmas morning.

They haven't quite made it to co-ordinated Christmas shirts yet but they will....
That's right boys, as of April 26th this girl is legal Dating age!!! Of course you still have to get past her Dad!
